Inner Ring (Countries or terror groups that border Israel)
“Rocket from Gaza explodes in an open area of the Sha’ar Hanegev Regional Council, causing no physical injuries or damages.”
“Gaza City (Palestinian Territories) (AFP) – The Israeli air force carried out strikes on Hamas sites in Gaza early Thursday in response to a rocket attack targeting the Jewish state, the army and Palestinian officials said.”
Maybe it was a mistake but the picture on the Yahoo news report talks about commemorating Nakba or catastrophe. That is pure Palestinian propaganda. What does that have to do with strikes after a rocket attack? Odd. Biased.
“Daily associated with Hezbollah reveals the terror group is working on tunnels into Israel, confirming the warnings of experts.”
“Hamas is siphoning off 95 percent of the cement transferred into the Gaza Strip intended to rebuild homes, so that it can use it for military purposes, Foreign Ministry director-general Dore Gold said on Tuesday.”
“Palestinian Authority schools use mock executions of Israelis and propaganda plays to prepare the next generation of murderous terrorists.”
And yet the PA still received aide money from Western countries.
“RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) — A gated community of villas with well-tended flower gardens near the West Bank town of Ramallah may help explain why Palestinians almost universally believe there is corruption in the government of President Mahmoud Abbas.”
“Treasury sanctions czar tells lawmakers the Obama administration continues to target Iranian support for ‘terrorist proxies’”
Meaningless victory and probably a lie. Hezbollah receives aide from Iran and Obama just gave them billions from the nuclear deal. Obama is actually funding terror.
“A shipment of pipes, which are used to make rockets, and electric motors, which are used to build terror tunnels, was intercepted by security forces at the Tarqumya Checkpoint. The shipment was confiscated and an investigation into the smuggling attempt is currently underway.”
“The Palestinian leadership this week signaled it is still interested in what it can get out of the land-for-peace process, but won’t actually negotiate the particulars with the Israeli government.”
‘Land for peace’ is a dead concept. Israel has already given up land and received only more violence in return.
Outer Ring (countries or terror groups that are close to but not bordering Israel)
“WASHINGTON — American Special Operations forces and the Syrian Kurdish and Arab fighters they are advising this week pushed closer to Raqqa, the Islamic State’s de facto capital in northern Syria.”
“Obama isn’t using sanctions or veto to stop game-changer weapons sale to Iran, Rep.’s inquiry on the matter gets ‘dismissed.'”
I just do not understand the love affair Obama has for Iran. Maybe he should move there.
“UK, France and Germany among 107 countries voting for investigation into conditions in West Bank, Gaza, Golan Heights.”
Another international witch hunt focus only on Israel. This is done so no one focuses on the real abusers like North Korea, Iran, Syria, Saudi Arabia, etc. God knows who the real abusers are. Justice well come.
“(Washington, D.C.) — An unprecedented spiritual revolution is underway in the Islamic world. From 1960 to 2010, the number of Muslims who have converted away from Islam and become true followers of Jesus Christ has skyrocketed, from fewer than 200,000 to some 10 million people. Amidst persecution and even genocide, the Church in the Middle East is growing in ways never seen in fourteen centuries of Islam. And there is now scholarly documentation backing up these numbers.”
“The Amman-based Arab Bank on Tuesday agreed to settle a class action lawsuit brought by the families of terror victims killed in attacks the plaintiffs say the Arab Bank helped fund.
The settlement stems from a 2014 decision by a New York jury finding the bank liable for damages. According to the lawsuit, the bank knowingly maintained accounts for Hamas terrorists and transferred payments to relatives of suicide bombers from 2000 to 2005.”
There needs to be more lawsuits like this. These banks are terrorists sympathizers and should be held accountable.
“In 2006, Pope Benedict XVI said what no Pope had ever dared to say — that there is a link between violence and Islam. Ten years later, Pope Francis never calls those responsible for anti-Christian violence by name and never mentions the word “Islam.”
True. He is already teaching the falsehood that Islam and Christianity worship the same God.
