Young Palestinian girl’s goal: To become like Dalal Mughrabi, martyred in a terror attack that killed 37 Israelis

Dalal Mughrabi is the celebrated terrorist who led the Fatah (Israel’s ‘peace’ partner) terror attack in 1978 that hijacked a bus and killed 37 civilians, 12 of them children, and wounded more than 70.

Mughrabi now has a school named in her honor, where the students strive to follow in her terrorist footsteps.

EGYPTIAN columnist demands compensation from the Jews for the 10 plagues they inflicted on Egypt

“We demand that the State of Israel pay compensation for the ten plagues that our forefathers in Egypt suffered thousands of years ago as a result of the curses of the Jewish forefathers.” So wrote prominent Egyptian columnist Ahmad Al-Gamal shortly before the Jewish Passover, causing a great stir.

banner_plagues

The Egyptians were punished with ten plagues when the Israelites were held as slaves by the Egyptians, right before the Exodus, somewhere around 1446 BCE. (Perhaps the Jews should be demanding compensation from Egypt for all the years of slave labor)

Israel Today  “What is written in the Torah is that Pharaoh discriminated against the children of Israel. What have we to do with it? We therefore need not suffer!” exclaimed Al-Gamal, drawing a clear difference between the Egyptian kingdom of the Pharaohs and Islamic Egypt of today. Islam accepts the biblical narrative as historical evidence.

The columnist suggested that the government in Cairo press charges against Israel: “The Jews caused the land to be stricken with locusts and all agriculture destroyed, turned the Nile red with blood so that one couldn’t drink its waters, sent darkness, frogs and killed the firstborn.”

Al-Gamal continued: “During 40 years of wandering in the desert, the Children of Israel enjoyed our goods, which they stole before abandoning us.” He also recommended that Egypt bring charges against France, Great Britain and Turkey for those nations’ historical conquests of Egypt.

The Egyptian column was picked up by the Israeli press, especially religious news outlets, which readily acknowledged all that Al-Gamal wrote as historical fact. Some Israeli columnists retorted that Egypt need first compensate Israel for keeping the Jewish forefathers as slaves and for killing all male Jewish babies in the generation prior to the Exodus.

Palestinians are keeping an eye out for Israel’s new ‘spy’ turtle

Israelis have taken Homesh, an injured green turtle who lost two flippers when he got tangled in a net, and fitted him with a high-tech stabilizing device attached to his back that is based on Lockheed-Martin’s Raptor Jet Fighter design.

Israel says the turtle won’t be able to be released back into the sea again but Muslims aren’t buying it and have issued a beheading order for any Zionist turtles that are found swimming near the Gaza coast.

FRENCH COURT convicts an IslamoNazi for performing a Nazi salute in front of a synagogue

images-2A French court has issued a landmark conviction of a 28-year-old Moroccan Muslim native for performing the controversial quenelle salute while standing in front of a Bordeaux synagogue, marking the first criminal conviction in connection with the Nazi style gesture, invented and popularized by French comedian Dieudonné M’Bala M’Bala, whose anti-Jewish stance has brought 7 convictions for inciting racial hatred.

Oh, here we go! What took them so long to blame the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines 370 on the Israelis?

It was inevitable that Muslims were going to blame Israel for the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight 370. American commentator, Dr. Kevin Barrett, paid by the Iranian government-owned Press TV, says Israel set up a false flag operation to blame the Iranians.

Notice the title on the video – “Plain Mystery.” Heh!

John Kerry threatens Israel: “Time is running out!”

Secretary of State John Kerry said on Friday Washington was evaluating whether to continue its role in Middle East peace talks, signaling his patience with the Israelis and Palestinians was running out. Speaking during a visit to Morocco after a week of setbacks, Kerry said there was a limit to U.S. efforts if the parties themselves were unwilling to move forward. (Promises, Promises!)

John Kerry

Newsmax  “This is not an open-ended effort, it never has been. It is reality check time, and we intend to evaluate precisely what the next steps will be,” Kerry said, adding he would return to Washington on Friday to consult with the Obama administration.

U.S. officials say Kerry had been blindsided by recent Israeli and Palestinian moves that had compromised undertakings made when they launched the latest round of talks aimed at ending their enduring conflict last July. “They say they want to continue, neither party has said they have called it off, but we are not going to sit there indefinitely,” Kerry said, making his bleakest assessment yet of talks that he has dedicated a huge amount of energy to. (Good, get out and leave them alone)

The negotiations were catapulted into crisis at the weekend when Israel refused to act on a previously agreed release of Palestinian prisoners unless it had assurances the Palestinians would continue talks beyond an initial end-April deadline. (Maybe because it’s ALWAYS the Israelis who are being asked to give up something, never the Palis)

Kerry flew to Jerusalem to try to find a solution. Just when he believed a convoluted deal was within reach, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas signed 15 international treaties, making clear he was ready to beat a unilateral path to world bodies unless he saw more movement from the Israelis.

A senior Palestinian official, Nabil Shaath, told Reuters that Abbas had not intended to upset Kerry, but rather to shine a spotlight on Israel’s failure to release the prisoners. “I think (Kerry) will return because we have not abandoned the process,” said the veteran negotiator, speaking in Ramallah, the Palestinians’ administrative capital in the West Bank.

“We will continue these negotiations as we agreed, and I wish for once that America’s patience runs out — with Israel and not the Palestinians,” he added.

With both sides looking to blame the other for the impasse, Israel’s centrist finance minister, Yair Lapid, said he questioned whether Abbas wanted a deal, pointing to a lengthy list of Palestinian demands published on Maan news agency. These included lifting a blockade on the Gaza Strip, and freeing a group of high profile prisoners, including Marwan Barghouti, jailed a decade ago over a spate of suicide bombings.

“(Abbas) should know that at this point in time his demands are working against him. No Israeli will negotiate with him at any price,” said Lapid, one of the more moderate voices within Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s rightist coalition.

Kerry has spent much of his first year as America’s top diplomat invested in the Middle East peace process, and has visited the region more than a dozen times. The talks have struggled from the start, stalling over Palestinian opposition to Israel’s demand that it be recognized as a Jewish state, and over the issue of fast-growing Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem.

Palestinians want an independent state in Gaza, the West Bank and East Jerusalem — lands captured by Israel in the 1967 war. While all parties say negotiations are the best path to peace, Palestinians say they may eventually resort to international bodies to force Israel to make concessions.

Another reason why El Al is the safest airline in the world

elal_2000logo4c-viElbit unveils laser-based anti-missile system for commercial airliners – ALL El Al Jets will be protected. Will your airline be?

JBN (h/t Susan K)  Thirteen years ago terrorists fired a shoulder mounted missile at an Israeli passenger jet taking off from Mombasa in Kenya on its way back to Israel. Fortunately they missed, but the incident triggered a prolonged debate as to how best to defend Israeli airliners from future such attacks. 

800px-el_al_boeing_747-200_4x-axq_warsaw

Indeed the delay could be said to have had one happy corollary, in that what has now been produced is several generations ahead of the best technology available just a few years ago.

Finally, Israel’s Ministry of Defense announced that the new SkyShield system of missile detection, and disablement, had completed operational tests and was certified for commercial use. Brigadier General Eitan Eshel, R&D Director at the Ministry said, “SkyShield has been validated under the most complex and sophisticated testing conditions ever conducted in Israel and is now ready to protect Israeli airlines.”

El-Al-airlines

Developed by Haifa based defence industry manufacturer Elbit Systems Ltd., SkyShield is a laser based system that deploys a version of Elbit systems’ multi-spectral infrared countermeasure, C-MUSIC. It is deployable to counter threats from man-deployable surface to air missile systems.

The technology uses advanced laser technology and thermal imaging to deflect incoming threats by means of jamming their guidance system, usually well before the pilot of the plane may even be aware a threat is on its way.

guardian-pod_large

SkyShield is the Israeli government’s belated response to a failed November 2002 attack in Mombasa, Kenya. In that event, terrorists targeted an Israeli charter flight with Russian made SA-7 missiles that only just missed the plane and narrowly avoided killing the 261 passengers and crew on the plane.

“SkyShield is the product of complex development and rigorous testing whose capabilities are unrivaled on the global market,” adding “Hundreds of engineers worked on this program to optimize technologies and ensure its adaptation to the civilian environment.”

DOUBLE WHAMMY! Virulently anti-Israel Jewish group at my alma mater, Washington University, St. Louis, is under fire for supporting terrorism

jstreetb-viOne of America’s elite universities became the focus of attention today as photos emerged showing students engaging in support for international terrorism. The two students, identified as Fadi AbuNe’meh and Taka Yamaguchi, were apparently leading activists with the campus chapter of J Street U, an organization that describes itself as “pro-Peace.”

See links below for background on J Street:

The Tower  An especially vibrant part of the group’s peace activism, apparently, includes wearing T-Shirts that say “Resistance is Not Terrorism,” and sport a picture of Leila Khaled, a notorious PFLP terrorist who hijacked airplanes in 1969 and 1970, caressing an AK-47.

The allegations broke this morning when photos were discovered of the two students wearing the shirts at an event sponsored by J Street U last April. In coverage of the event, AbuNe’meh is quoted as a representative of the group.

In AbuNe’meh’s Facebook postings, shown below, when asked where they acquired the shirts, he pointed to a vicious anti-Israel website called existenceisresitance.org. That website also offers shirts with a map of the entirety of Israel drawn in with a keffiyeh pattern and the caption “Un-Occupy,” calling for the elimination of Israel as a whole. The site describes the shirts explicitly as showing a picture of Leila Khaled. (‘J Street,’ a far left Jewish pressure group, not only includes Muslim members, it is also sponsored by several Muslim groups – See video Below)

It is worth noting that another student, Elisabeth Housman, who is listed here as “liking” the pro-terror photo, is also listed on the local campus Hillel website as the official contact person for J Street U on campus.

The second student in the photo, Yamaguchi, was described as the moderator of the event. He has gone on record advocating for the ”full right of return” of Palestinians to pre-1967 Israel. “In some ways,” he has written, “the essence of being Palestinian today is the right of return itself: what we lost, and what we fight to regain.”

Neither student was apparently available to respond to the accusations, as both seem to be off campus this year. As of this writing, both list “Ramallah,” in the Palestinian Authority, as their current city of residence on what appear to be their Facebook pages.

Washington University’s J Street U branch came under fire recently this week for sponsoring an event for the discredited anti-IDF group “Breaking the Silence.”

J-Streets-pro-Israel-agenda

There has been increasing coverage of late of anti-Israel activism on America’s campuses, especially in support of the boycott (BDS) movement that Canadian Prime Minister recently called “a mutation of the old disease of anti-Semitism.” The ease with which boycott support slides into terror support is apparently going to deepen these concerns.

Washington University at St. Louis is ranked 14th among American universities by U.S. News & World Report.

Israeli Arab Christians come out swinging against against ‘Anti-Israel’ Facebook Campaign

imagesThe Israeli Christian Recruitment Forum on Thursday came out loaded for bear against yet another malicious propaganda campaign targeting Israel on the popular social network Facebook. The campaign appears to center around a composite picture of six dilapidated local churches that are presented as false evidence that the Jewish state discriminates against and seeks to remove Christians from the Holy Land.

140327_christians

Israel Today  Such notions have undergirded a new Evangelical Christian movement that paints Palestinian Christians as the suffering Jesus to Israel’s strong-armed Romanesque oppressor.

The first lie the Israeli Christian Recruitment Forum (a growing movement of Arabic-speaking Christian natives) takes on is that in 1948, Jewish forces swept through the land with the aim of eradicating all Christians, along with the Muslims.

“To our great disappointment, in 1948 David Ben Gurion wanted the Christians to stay and join the defense of the State of Israel, but the Christians failed to be forward-thinking and instead cowered in fear behind the Arab militias or tried to stay out of the conflict all together,” the group wrote on its own Facebook page.

The forum noted that the local Druze residents “initially fought against Israel, but ultimately switched sides, saving their villages and their people.”

Among the other fallacies listed is the idea that surrounding Arab nations are “paradise” for Christians compared to the “hell” of living in what many try to portray as the “apartheid state” of Israel.

To this, the forum responded: “If Israel is hell and the Arab state are paradise, then we as Christians with Aramean roots say that our religion is actually rooted in Judaism, [so] we prefer to remain in the ‘hellfire of the State of Israel.’ We invite the rest of you to take a one way trip to Syria or Iraq where you will be warmly welcomed as Arab Christians by [various terror groups], or to Gaza where Hamas will surely love you well.”

The group also addressed the ongoing spate of Jewish vandalism against primarily Christian targets, calling it the actions of a small group of racists who first and foremost are harming Israel’s image, and reminding everyone that the so-called “price tag” attackers have yet to kill or injure a single person.

CHUTZPAH: Muslims trying to ban Jews from praying at the Western Wall

"Say WHAT?"

“Say WHAT?”

Chutzpah is unmitigated gall. But in the case of Muslims, it’s probably a symptom of rampant inbreeding. Palestine Arabs declare that the Western Wall (the holiest place in Judaism) is part of the al-Aqsa mosque and therefore is off limits to Jews.

PalWatch  The Palestinian Authority Minister of Religious Affairs Mahmoud Al-Habbash and the former Chief Justice of the PA’s Religious Court both recently declared that the PA’s Islamic belief and political position is that Jews are prohibited from praying at the Western Wall of the Temple Mount. Palestinian Media Watch has documented that the PA denies Israel’s history and rights in Jerusalem, but these statements by top religious leaders go even further.

856459_4225066275834_214722851_o-e1395939217437 The PA claims that the area of the Muslim holy site, the Al-Aqsa Mosque, includes not only the mosque itself, but extends over the entire Temple Mount and includes Judaism’s holy site – the Western Wall.

0091 PA Minister of Religious Affairs Mahmoud Al-Habbash: “Jerusalem is religion’s trust and history’s trust in the hands of all Muslims, in the hands of this Ummah (Islamic Nation)… The Al-Buraq Wall (i.e., the Western Wall of the Temple Mount) is an authentic part of the Al-Aqsa Mosque only.”

“Sheikh Tayseer Al-Tamimi, former Chief Justice of PA Religious Court:

“Allah decreed that the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque is Islamic and belongs to Muslims alone… It is part of the religious belief of a billion and a half Muslims, andthe Jews have no right to it. No party, no matter how much power and international support it has, can change this established fact by giving the Jews any right to it, or the right to pray in any part of it. The Al-Aqsa Mosque includes all its courtyards… and specifically, its western wall.” [Al-Hayyat Al-Jadida, Feb. 17, 2014]

UPDATE on that story about Loyola University passing a resolution calling for divestment from Israel

Pro-Israel students at Chicago’s Loyola University are mobilizing a response to the Students for Justice in Palestine-sponsored Israel divestment resolution passed by the school’s student government last week.

uni-235x300

Algemeiner  The resolution, which passed 26-0 with two abstentions March 18, urges the university administration “to withdraw investments from eight corporations complicit in Israel’s occupation of the Palestinian territories, including Caterpillar, SodaStream, Veolia, and Hewlett-Packard.”

Most importantly, Loyola University officials have distanced themselves from the student-led resolution, stating, Loyola University Chicago has NOT adopted a resolution calling for the University to withdraw or refrain from investing in certain companies providing products and services in IsraelThis is not the position of Loyola University Chicago and we will not adopt this proposal.”

Hamas lawmaker calls for a “massacre” of Jews, explaining that the quran commands it must be done

And they wonder why there are ever-increasing calls for Israel to retake Gaza – Permanently?

INN  (h/t Liz) Arab incitement against Israel has continued throughout the peace talks with the Palestinian Authority (PA). It is not only Hamas, which is considered a terrorist group by most Western countries, that has incited against Israel, but also the PA under Mahmoud Abbas, who is often described as a “moderate peace partner.”  Top officials in Abbas’s Fatah party have openly supported Hamas’s efforts to kidnap Israeli soldiers. One of these officials, Abbas Zaki, recently declared that “Allah will gather [Israelis] so that we can kill them.”
