Articles of the Day 8/19/14: Evil Has A Name…
Israel-Hamas Conflict 2014
“7 hours before truce’s end, Palestinians target Beersheba with three missiles; Jerusalem officials blame Hamas.”
How many is that now? 10 or 12 I have lost count.
“During Operation Protective Edge, before aerial strikes, a plane from the Flying Camel Squadron flew over the target. The pilots of these planes decided whether to hit the target or to cancel the strike because of danger to civilians.”
“Israel is believed to be working on its newest weapon system, codenamed “Iron Spade”, in its fight against the sophisticated terror tunnels developed over the years by Hamas. In what has been described as the underground equivalent of Israel’s successful Iron Dome missile interceptor system, the Iron Spade will detect Hamas fighters’ attempts to dig tunnels, a Sunday Times report said.”
“Shin Bet, IDF say plot was orchestrated by Hamas overseas headquarters located in Turkey, and centered on a string of mass casualty terror attacks.”
“In the end, everyone shot at the same time,” Zelinger said. “As the event was unfolding, they all shared a common picture that allowed the ground commander in charge to choreograph the strike.”
“Ambassador Prosor: Schabas appointment to head Gaza inquiry is like “choosing Count Dracula to run a blood bank.”
With the appointment of Schabas the UN is not even hiding it anymore. They are anti-Semitic.
“Despite ample evidence that UN-funded building materials are used for terror tunnels, Robert Serry blindly pushes for ‘humanitarian aid.'”
Frankly, if Israel allows in building materials they should expect large civilian casualties as a result.
“JERUSALEM — The fighting is barely over in the latest Gaza war, with a five-day cease-fire taking hold on Thursday, but attention has already shifted to the legal battlefield as Israel gears up to defend itself against international allegations of possible war crimes in the month long conflict.”
No word in the inquiry on Hamas war crimes.
“Allowing Hamas to open a Gaza seaport would only serve to allow Iran direct access to rearm the Islamic terror group, the former chief of the Israeli Navy told Israeli Army radio Sunday.”
Sunni-Shiite Civil War
“DOHUK Iraq (Reuters) – When Islamic State militants stormed into a northern Iraqi village and ordered everyone to convert to Islam or die only one person refused. But that did not satisfy the Sunni insurgents who are even more hardline than al Qaeda.”
Evil has a name and it is Islam.
“Kurdish forces have recaptured the eastern part of the Mosul dam in Iraq from the Islamic State (IS) jihadist group, Kurdish officials say.”
“LABWE, LEBANON — Lebanon’s militant Shiite Hezbollah organization has begun sending fighters as young as 16 to the battlefields of Syria, an indication that the Shiite army is being stretched between fighting Sunni jihadis in Syria and a desire to keep a cutting edge in reserve for a possible future showdown with Israel.”
“Aircraft carry out 35 strikes, marking most intense American bombardment of extremist group to date.”
“A recent video on Jihad-related websites presents three young Brits in Syria, holding guns and calling on others to join them. One of them turns to the viewer and says: “Are you willing to sacrifice your job, the big car, the family? Are you willing to sacrifice for the sake of Allah? Brothers in the West, I know how you feel, I lived there. In your hearts you are depressed. The medicine is Jihad. Brothers of mine, join Jihad and feel the respect we feel, feel the joy that we feel.”
The great lie of Jihad must be very alluring to naive young Muslims. Already radicalized in the West, they are easy pickings for Satan’s minions in Islam.
“Cairo demands that America show ‘respect for the right of assembly and peaceful expression of opinion’”.
Egypt sticking it too the US.
“CAIRO (AP) — Airstrikes launched by an unknown party targeting Islamist-led militias in Libya’s capital killed six people Monday, authorities said, as the interim government vowed to investigate the strikes amid raging street battles.”
“CNN – A powerful earthquake struck early Monday in western Iran, injuring at least 250 people in a region near the border with Iraq. Local authorities said they fear the quake may have caused widespread destruction in rural areas.”
“In this “The Truth Will Set You Free” episode, we discuss the differences between the Tribulation and the Great Tribulation. The first half of the discussion is in English, while the second half is translated into Spanish.”
