MUSLIM charities offer $5,300 paychecks for families of suicide bombers in Israel

For the first time, startling details are being made public about the millions of dollars funneled from Middle East charities to Islamic terrorists and their families. These are the same charities supported and funded by Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas front groups in the U.S. like CAIR, ISNA, ICNA, MSA, and more.

Wasfiyeh Idris, the mother of suicide bomber Wafa Idris, surrounded by other female family members, holds a portrait of her daughter at her home in the al-Amari refugee camp near the West Bank town of Ramallah 30 January, 2002. Idris believed to be the first ever female Palestinian suicide bomber, blew herself up in central Jerusalem 27 January, killing an elderly Israeli man in an attack claimed by the al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, a radical offshoot of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat's Fatah movement.

Daily Signal (by Sharyl Attkisson)  The money was used to reward Muslim terrorists and their families after attacks on Israelis and U.S. nationals visiting Israel between 2000 and 2005 during the second intifada or Palestinian uprising. The evidence was presented today in a landmark case in New York federal court. Three hundred U.S. nationals claim Arab Bank knowingly provided financial services to terrorists and their financiers in violation of the U.S. anti-terrorism law. Arab Bank contends it did not knowingly serve terrorists.

Bank documents reveal an elaborate system for which Amman, Jordan-based Arab Bank served as the center point. Some Israelis refer to the bank as the “Grand Central Station of terrorist financing.”

For example, bank documents allegedly show that a dozen Middle Eastern charities with links to the terrorist group Hamas and other radical Islamic groups transferred $32 million to Arab Bank during the second intifada. The money was then allegedly paid out to families of suicide bombers and other Palestinians who engaged in acts of terrorism against Jews.

An additional charity, the Saudi Committee for the Support of the Intifada al Quds, sent nearly $100 million through Arab Bank. The plaintiff’s analysis of bank records indicates $32 million of it ended up being distributed as cash payments to martyrs and their families, including the families of suicide bombers, and the rest was distributed to other Hamas-controlled charities.

According to evidence presented by the plaintiffs today, based on bank documents, families of suicide bombers received a $5,300 payment, or about four times the average annual Palestinian income at the time of $1,600. If a martyr was wounded but not killed, he received $2,655. If a martyr was arrested and jailed, the family received $1,325. The recipients simply showed up at an Arab Bank branch, presented identification, and received the cash.

Under anti-terrorism law, it’s illegal for banks to do business with designated terrorist entities or with groups that they  know or have reason to believe are linked to terrorists or terrorist activity. That’s where the two sides sharply differ.

Arab Bank’s attorney told jurors in opening statements last week that the Saudi Committee was a legitimate humanitarian group that was never a U.S.-designated terrorist organization. Arab Bank also claimed that any business it may have conducted with terrorists or terrorist groups was limited in nature and entirely unintentional, due to typos or mistakes in screening.

In 2005, Arab Bank settled a U.S. Treasury Department investigation into alleged money laundering and terrorist financing by paying a $24 million fine without admitting wrongdoing.

The plaintiffs in the New York trial are seeking monetary damages and financial penalties from Arab Bank.

PRO-HAMAS MUSLIM gang waving Palestinian flags attack Jewish couple on a street in Manhattan

Muslim assailants hurled anti-Semitic slurs before attacking the woman and punching her husband as he tried to stop them.

Israel-and-Palestine-13

INN A Jewish couple in New York were physically assaulted Monday by an anti-Semitic gang, who then fled the scene in cars flying the Palestinian Authority flag, according to the New York Post. Police sources say two cars and several motorbikes suddenly pulled up next to the couple as they were walking on East 63rd Street near Third Avenue on the Upper East Side, just after 8 p.m. Monday evening.

The attackers then started shouting “anti-Jewish statements,”, before launching their assault. One of the men struck the woman with a water bottle, and another punched her husband in the side of his head as he intervened to defend her.

The victims, who live in the area, were left shaken but not seriously injured. Their identities have not been released, but the Post said the husband was 27 years old, and that they may have been targeted because he was wearing a kippa (skullcap).

HAMASchmuck leader cries “uncle”…begs Obama to stop Israeli “holocaust” on Gaza

Hey, you don’t need Obama, all you need to do is stop building terror tunnels and launching missiles into Israel, and you always could have had anything you wanted. Hopefully, now, that ship has sailed.

Yahoo News  The political leader of Hamas, Khaled Meshaal  (living in luxury in Qatar) is calling for the White House to step in and end “the holocaust” he alleges Israeli forces have carried out against Palestinians.

BpZMU4OCEAA3E5E.jpg-large

“You as the leader of the most powerful state in the world, I ask you to call (on) Israel to stop its aggression on Gaza — and to lift the siege and open the cross borders and to rebuild Gaza,” Khaled Meshaal told Yahoo! News in exclusive comments, directed at President Obama, published Monday. “This is our demand.” (Rebuild it yourself with all the money we’ve sent you)

“What is the difference between what (Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin) Netanyahu, (Israeli Defense Minister Moshe) Yaalon and (Israel Defense Forces chief of staff Benny) Gantz are doing — killing thousands of civilians, children, women, entire neighborhoods, targeting mosques, destroying hospitals and schools,” Meshaal added, in some of his most brazen remarks made yet. “What’s the difference between that and what the Nazis did in the 1930s and ’40s? And what Hitler did. This is the real holocaust.”

Meshaal’s comments came after the latest cease-fire between Israel and Hamas definitively broke down over the weekend. In the interview, in which he answered all other questions in Arabic, Meshaal was at times defiant, comparing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at one point to Adolf Hitler.

“Hamas will pay a high price,” vows Benjamin Netanyahu, for a mortar bomb fired from the Gaza Strip that killed a 4-year-old Israeli boy

Gaza rocket that killed four-year-old Israeli boy, Daniel Tragerman, was launched from near a school used as a shelter for Palestinian refugees, says IDF.

Times of Israel  Boy succumbs to wounds after rocket hits home; Ashdod man in critical condition from wounds sustained by rocket; hundreds of rockets land in Israel Friday.

Sirens wailed only very shortly before the mortar shell struck outside the Tragerman family home at the kibbutz, and his parents — Doron and Gila — were unable to get their son Daniel into their protected room in time. He was killed by shrapnel from the explosion that smashed into the house. Several cars and buildings sustained damage from the fire following the explosion of the mortar shell.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Hamas would pay a “heavy price” for the killing. In a phone call to local Sha’ar Hanegev council head Alon Shuster, Netanyahu said the IDF and Shin Bet would intensify their operations against Hamas and other Gaza terror groups until sustained calm was guaranteed for Israel. Shuster said the family had only recently returned to their home, having stayed elsewhere during part of the war.

US ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro condemned the attack. “I condemn in the strongest terms this outrageous terrorist attack and offer condolences to the boy’s family. Israel has the right and obligation to defend itself, which the United States supports,” he wrote on his Facebook page.

Tragerman was the first Israeli fatality since Hamas breached a truce on Tuesday and resumed rocket fire at Israel, prompting a re-escalation of fighting and the collapse of ceasefire talks in Cairo. One person was in critical condition, and two others were lightly injured, in a separate rocket attack in the Ashdod area later Friday.

F140821KK02

By Friday evening, Gaza-based terror groups had fired over 110 rockets and mortar shells into Israel since the morning. Sirens sounded across southern and central Israel as a barrage of rockets was launched in the late afternoon hours. Earlier Friday, a rocket slammed into an empty house in Sderot, causing significant damage.

Also on Friday afternoon, a synagogue in Ashdod suffered a direct hit by a Gaza rocket. The building was badly damaged and three people were injured in that attack, one moderately.

Hamas has fired over 3,500 rockets at Israel in the past 46 days, including some 600 from close to schools, mosques and other civilian facilities.

ISLAMIC STREET JUSTICE! Hamas goes on a killing spree, executing 18 “alleged” collaborators with Israel

Nothing like a good old- fashioned execution spree to bring out the crowds

Nothing like a good old- fashioned execution spree to bring out the crowds

The executions followed Thursday’s assassinations of three of Hamas’s most senior commanders in an Israeli air strike. Israel also attempted to assassinate Hamas military chief Muhammad Deif and may have succeeded: Israeli officials have asserted he’s likely dead, but other reports indicate he may have survived.

Breitbart (h/t Jim Y)   Israel’s intelligence services are believed to rely on informers to locate the whereabouts of Hamas leaders.

BUH BYE!

BUH BYE!

According to The Times of Israel, the security official said the 11 suspected informers were killed early Friday at the Gaza City police headquarters. He said the 11 Gaza men had previously been sentenced by Gaza courts, though he did not elaborate as to what kind of judicial process may have been followed. Hamas has sentenced numerous individuals to death after only summary proceedings.

Hamas TV reported that the number of those executed actually consisted of 18 men. Six of those executed were shot dead in front of a mosque by men in Hamas military uniforms, according to reports by Israel National News. Last month, at the height of the Israel Defense Forces’ Operation Protective Edge in the Gaza Strip, a Palestinian media source reported that Hamas had killed over 30 suspected informants for Israel.

BEWARE! Antisemitic swans are attacking Jews all over Europe

177026115I was attacked by a swan the other day, as I walked along the bank of the River Stour in Kent. The creature climbed out of the water and lunged towards me, wings puffed up, making this guttural and hate-filled coughing noise. I kicked out at its stupid neck and told it to fuck off and the bird backed away towards the river, still making that demented hissing, like a badly maintained boiler.

800px-The_swan_attacks_man.Hokkaido-toyako,人を襲う洞爺湖の白鳥P6200258モザイク

Spectator  (h/t Inexion) At first I was mystified as to how I had gained its enmity. I wasn’t near its mate and still further distant from its sallow and bedraggled idiot children. Nor had I advanced towards it, or even given it a threatening glare. And then the horrible realisation dawned on me. The swan had attacked me because it believed — mistakenly — that I was Jewish.

There was no other possible explanation. And as I stood, a little shaken, on that riverbank, it occurred too that all of these mysterious anti-Semitic attacks which we’ve been hearing about recently, the attacks in which the perpetrators remain a complete and utter mystery, are almost certainly the work of swans. Why had I not realised this before?

article-2121505-125DF326000005DC-980_966x549

The previous day I had read a very long piece in the Guardian by Owen Jones precisely about anti-Semitism. In the course of more than 1,000 words Owen kindly cautioned us against having anti-Jewish feelings and pointed out that anti-Semitic attacks were on the rise throughout Europe and that this was a bad thing, on the whole.

But nowhere did he say who was responsible for this nastiness and I was left with the impression that it could be any of us, just any of us, walking down the street one day and we’re suddenly possessed of the insuperable desire to torch a synagogue or knife a rabbi.

a-swan-can-beak-a-woman-arms-you-know

Puzzlingly, Owen did dwell for a paragraph or two on the anti-Semitic roots of some of Europe’s far-right parties. So there was a sort of implication that perhaps those sorts of people had been responsible, although no direct allegation. I have heard and seen much the same thing on the BBC andChannel 4 News; reports of horrible attacks upon synagogues and Jewish businesses in Europe.

A huge spike in anti-Semitic attacks in this country, too — more than 200 in the last month; more in the last four weeks than the previous six months put together. But no mention, not even a hint, as to who might be responsible. A complete mystery, isn’t it? 

racistswan01

We are left to try to fathom our own explanation — and it is very difficult, isn’t it? I think the giveaway, though, is some of the graffiti which accompanies these attacks: Allahu Akbar! Jihad! Stuff like that. It’s obvious — unusually literate, fundamentalist swans.

Here’s the thing. I will bet every penny I have and more besides that virtually all of the anti-Semitic attacks in this country — and in France and Germany and Belgium — have been perpetrated by Muslims. And because they have been perpetrated by Muslims, that fact will simply not be reported, even when it is plainly obvious that the attackers were Muslim.

Angry_Mute_Swan_and_Rottweiler

This is a peculiar state of affairs, to my mind. Imagine if it wasn’t Muslims or swans. Just pretend for a moment that of, say, 200 anti-Semitic attacks in the UK, a study discovered that 198 of them had been committed by Methodists. That the one thing which 99 per cent of violent UK anti-Semites had in common was membership of the Methodist church. Do you think that such a fact would not be mentioned in news reports of such incidents, or in comment pieces by juveniles warning us how horrible anti-Semitism really is?

I think the journos would be falling over themselves to nail the Methodists, and to delve and investigate the roots of this sectarian hatred. I think this fact would be considered salient and significant, germane to the issue at hand. But not with Muslims.

Angry-swan-55148-1

Instead, Owen and the rest will first try to disguise the fact that it is Muslims making these attacks and then secondly, when it becomes patently obvious that it is Muslims, will try to insist that this fact is irrelevant and perhaps simply an unfortunate coincidence. And that anyway, because not all Muslims are anti-Semites, the fact is not worth reporting.

But of course it would not be considered irrelevant and a coincidence if it were any other minority group on earth, would it? And of course it isn’t irrelevant, or a coincidence; there is a strain of anti-Semitism running through Islam, and a mistrust or even loathing of Jews is firmly rooted within both our Muslim communities and in Muslim countries from Turkey to the Indonesian archipelago.

Bu_n7KLIEAEWe7u.jpg-large

This does not mean for a moment that all Muslims are anti-Semites, and nor of course should that conclusion be drawn. But Islamic anti-Semitism is surely a fact — and recognised as such by plenty of the more, um, enlightened Muslim writers, such as Mehdi Hasan.

Here’s what he had to say on the issue: ‘It pains me to have to admit this but anti-Semitism isn’t just tolerated in some sections of the British Muslim community; it’s routine and commonplace. Any Muslims reading this article — if they are honest with themselves — will know instantly what I am referring to. It’s our dirty little secret. You could call it the banality of Muslim anti-Semitism.’

Angry swan  accuses media of being "Swanophobic"

Angry swan accuses non-swan of being “Swanophobic”

Remember, it is only three or four years ago that our most moderate and amenable Muslim organisation, the Muslim Council of Britain, refused to take part in Holocaust Day, so great was its animus toward Britain’s Jewish community.

To refuse to tell the truth when you know what the truth is constitutes bad journalistic practice, to my mind. But it is also deluding and utterly gutless.

Is Israel close to re-taking Gaza?

Israeli Communications Minister Gilad Erdan, a member of the Security Cabinet, told Army Radio on Thursday that the resumption of Hamas rocket fire had brought Israel closer than ever to a decision to fully reconquer the Gaza Strip.

TOPSHOTS-ISRAEL-PALESTINIAN-CONFLICT-GAZA

Israel Today  Erdan said that Hamas decided to break the tenuous ceasefire on Tuesday because Israel refused to meet a single one of the terrorists’ primary demands during talks in Cairo. Over the past 24 hours, Hamas and allied terror groups have fired dozens of missiles into southern and central Israel, causing widespread damage and at least one injury.

Israel has thus far confined its response to targeted aerial strikes. But Erdan warned that Israeli military operations could expand dramatically if Hamas continues to attack. “Will this happen tomorrow? It’s not certain, since the price for this will be high, but we are closer today to a ground operation than we have been at any point since the start of the operation,” said the minister.

Israel’s aerial strikes have also become somewhat less restrained. In the first weeks of the Gaza war, Israeli forces issued several warnings of the occupants of targeted buildings, even if that meant missing the targeted terrorist. Now, these warnings seem to be coming less frequently, as Israel is more determined to actually eliminate Hamas leaders.

The terror group confirmed on Thursday that three of its senior field commanders had been killed, along with members of their families, in Israeli air strikes.

Of course, this follows Hamas’ admission that they did, in fact, kidnap and murder those 3 Israeli teens.

10628113_10152328908582076_4259915009939246476_n

Israel also targeted the home of Hamas military leader Mohammed Deif with a volley of five powerful missiles. Palestinian sources said that Deif’s wife, child and one other unidentified person were killed. Hamas insisted that Deif had survived, but Israeli generals said all evidence pointed to his demise.

SHOCKER! Palestinian activist says, “We have to get rid of Hamas”

Palestinian human rights activist Bassem Eid

Palestinian human rights activist Bassem Eid

“For over 26 years, I have dedicated my life to the defense of human rights. But the last month has been particularly hard for me. Death and the rubble of Gaza are like a tsunami. But as a Palestinian, I must admit: I am responsible for what happened. We can not deny our responsibility for our own dead.” –Bassem Eid

Israel Today  “Most Palestinians are against missile attacks on Israel. But we elected Hamas with the knowledge that doing so would bring about the death of our own people. We knew Hamas was digging tunnels, which eventually lead to our own destruction. …Hamas also knew that an attack on Israel would result in a high death toll. But the Hamas leadership is only interested in their own victory, not about the people.”

201

“Hamas requires death. Death brings her power and money for more weapons. Hamas was never interested in liberating the Palestinian people from occupation. And Israel will not be able to destroy the infrastructure of Hamas in the Gaza Strip. Only we, the Palestinian people, can do that. The Palestinians in Gaza have to rebel against the Hamas regime.”

“Will we learn from this latest tragedy? I think so. We must first get rid of Hamas and demilitarize the Gaza Strip. Then the border crossings can be opened. And I say this as a loyal Palestinian. I say this because I care about the future of my people. ”

HAMAS says, “Israelis won’t go home until WE let them go home”

Hamas blowhard, Sami Abu-Zuhri, claims that it is Hamas that has the power in the truce talks, not Netanyahu; calls for full lifting of blockade. (Don’t dream, terror boy)

quotee3vi-vi

INN  Even as Israel eased the ban on Gaza fishermen Sunday in a “goodwill”gesture during the Cairo truce talks, Hamas declared that only it will decide “when Israelis return to their homes” in the rocket-beleaguered south.

Hamas spokesperson Sami Abu-Zuhri said “the Israelis won’t be secureuntil our people are secure, until they remove the blockade from us completely.” Ironically given his “concern” for Gaza residents’ security, Abu-Zuhri early in the operation exhorted Gazans to serve as human shields in a TV interview.

hamas-human-shield

Abu-Zuhri spoke on Sunday while at a Hamas support rally in Rafah, according to the Palestinian Arab Ma’an News Agency. “The Israelis won’t return to their homes until Hamas lets them, and not (Prime Minister Binyamin) Netanyahu,” threatened Abu-Zuhri. “The preference is to reach an agreement, but the occupier needs to stop delaying; we are looking for an agreement not from weakness but rather from a position of power.”

The threat comes as many residents of the south near Gaza have been displaced from their homes for over a month, under the ongoing barrage of rocket and terror tunnel attacks that are on a temporary pause during the ceasefire set to end Monday night.

Ten thousand people joined residents of the Gaza Belt area protesting in Tel Aviv’s Rabin Square last Thursday, where they called on Israel to finish the job in Gaza, ending the threat through decisive action.

However, as noted above Israel on Sunday made one-sided concessions before any agreement was reached. Abu-Zuhri’s threats come after Hamas said it is conducting talks with Israel “at gunpoint.

Abu-Zuhri’s comment about not looking for an agreement out of a position of weakness may come in response to Netanyahu’s remarks Sunday, in which he said “if Hamas thinks it will make up for its military losses with a political achievement, it is wrong.”

CAIRO: A solid Netanyahu-Sisi-Abbas negotiating bloc tells US and EU, “No, thanks, we don’t need your help”

A three-way bloc fronted the talks for a durable truce in Gaza when they resumed in Cairo, on Sunday, August 17th. Egyptian President Abdel Fatteh El-Sisi, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas have lined up in a solid phalanx against the Islamist Hamas-Islamic Jihad alliance.

Netanyahu-al-sisi

DEBKA  (h/t Susan K) Their lineup, backed from the wings by Saudi King Abdullah and Russian President Vladimir Putin, set itself five objectives:

1.  To confront Hamas with a solid political-security front which is beyond its power to break.

2.  To corner Hamas into accepting the Egyptian ceasefire proposion unchanged and unconditionally.

3.  To compel Hamas to disarm, i.e. dismantle its rockets and tunnels, so pulling the teeth of its military wing, Ezz e-Din al-Qassam.

4.  To distance the Obama administration from the triple bloc’s dealings with the Palestinian Islamist factions.

5.  To keep the Europeans from interfering in those dealings.

The foreign ministers of Britain, France, Germany and Italy meeting in Brussels offered Friday to take charge of Gaza’s border crossings and work to prevent illegal arms flows. Saturday, Cairo, Jerusalem and Ramallah politely informed Brussels that they preferred to handle this situation on their own and no European diplomatic or security assistance was needed.

The quiet shaping of this three-way alliance for resolving the Gaza conflict, by means of a sustainable cessation of hostilities, kept most of Israel’s and world media guessing, says DEBKAfile. In the interests of tight secrecy, Netanyahu and Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon chose to keep the rest of the cabinet in the dark as well, incurring loud complaints from ministers.

sisi

The proposition the three partners have formulated puts Hamas and Jihad on the spot. The Arab world has abandoned them and their only source of funding is Tehran. So their choices are grim: Face an escalated war that Israel will fight until the bitter end, or swallow hard and accept the only proposition on the table which is tantamount to disarmament and capitulation.

Their isolation is complete. The Egyptian, Israeli and Palestinian leaders have managed to cut Hamas away from any backing in Washington, Qatar and Turkey as well as blocking its path to Moscow.

To encourage Hamas to choose the right path, the Israel Air Force is cruising around-the-clock over Hamas bases and command centers in the Gaza Strip, ready at a signal to switch to the offensive if the Palestinian fundamentalists make the wrong choice in Cairo. Mahmoud Abbas, who appeared to be sitting on the sidelines of the Gaza conflict during Israel’s month-long military operation, finally threw in his lot with Sisi and Netanyahu when it came to the crunch.
