HOORAY FOR PALLYWOOD! Hamas to social media: “Anyone killed/martyred must be called an innocent civilian”

Hamas has instructed its social media legions to be careful with terminology used to describe Israel’s Operation Protective Edge on Facebook, posting a revealing set of guidelines on its own Facebook page, MEMRI, the Middle East Media Research Institute, reported on Thursday.

Algemeiner  Among its recommendations, social media activists were told to describe anyone who dies as a “civilian,” and specifically were reminded, “Don’t forget to always add ‘innocent civilian.’”



MEMRI said: “The Information Department of the Ministry of the Interior and National Security has instructed activists on social media websites, particularly Facebook, to correct some of the commonly used terms as they cover the aggression taking place in the Gaza Strip. The following Information Department video calls on all activists to use the proper terminology, in order to play their part in strengthening the home front and in properly conveying information worldwide.”



MEMRI translated the original Facebook post into English.

“Anyone killed or martyred is to be called a civilian from Gaza or Palestine, before we talk about his status in jihad or his military rank. Don’t forget to always add ‘innocent civilian’ or ‘innocent citizen’ in your description of those killed in Israeli attacks on Gaza.”

“Begin [your reports of] news of resistance actions with the phrase ‘In response to the cruel Israeli attack,’ and conclude with the phrase ‘This many people have been martyred since Israel launched its aggression against Gaza.’ Be sure to always perpetuate the principle of ‘the role of the occupation is attack, and we in Palestine are fulfilling [the role of] the reaction.’”


“Beware of spreading rumors from Israeli spokesmen, particularly those that harm the home front. Be wary regarding accepting the occupation’s version [of events]. You must always cast doubts on this [version], disprove it, and treat it as false.”




SYRIA, NOT GAZA as below


“Avoid publishing pictures of rockets fired into Israel from [Gaza] city centers. This [would] provide a pretext for attacking residential areas in the Gaza Strip. Do not publish or share photos or video clips showing rocket launching sites or the movement of resistance [forces] in Gaza.”



“To the administrators of news pages on Facebook: Do not publish close-ups of masked men with heavy weapons, so that your page will not be shut down [by Facebook] on the claim that you are inciting violence. In your coverage, be sure that you say: ‘The locally manufactured shells fired by the resistance are a natural response to the Israeli occupation that deliberately fires rockets against civilians in the West Bank and Gaza’”


The Interior Ministry also prepared a list of recommendations for activists who speak to Westerners via social media, instructing them to interact differently than in conversations with other Arabs:



“When speaking to the West, you must use political, rational, and persuasive discourse, and avoid emotional discourse aimed at begging for sympathy. There are elements with a conscience in the world; you must maintain contact with them and activate them for the benefit of Palestine. Their role is to shame the occupation and expose its violations.”



“Avoid entering into a political argument with a Westerner aimed at convincing him that the Holocaust is a lie and deceit; instead, equate it with Israel’s crimes against Palestinian civilians.”



“The narrative of life vs. the narrative of blood: [When speaking] to an Arab friend, start with the number of martyrs. [But when speaking] to a Western friend, start with the number of wounded and dead. Be sure to humanize the Palestinian suffering. Try to paint a picture of the suffering of the civilians in Gaza and the West Bank during the occupation’s operations and its bombings of cities and villages.”



“Do not publish photos of military commanders. Do not mention their names in public, and do not praise their achievements in conversations with foreign friends!”

Obama’s BFF, PM Erdogan’s anti-Israel speeches have incited Muslim violence against Jews in Turkey


Israeli diplomats and their families have been recalled from Turkey. Things are getting serious here,” a Jewish activist in Turkey said on Friday, as riots in Ankara and Istanbul at Israel’s embassy and consulate overnight led the Israel Foreign Ministry to recall the families of its diplomats and to reduce its diplomatic representation to a minimum.

Algemeiner  “Everything was at moderation until several speeches of [Prime Minister Recep Tayyip] Erdoğan, where he accused Israel of killing women and children,” said the activist, who requested anonymity due to safety concerns. The escalation comes as Israeli forces entered Gaza in an expansion of Israel’s Operation Protective Edge aimed at ending rocket fire against civilians.


As well as Erdoğan, who condemned Israel in another hate-filled speech on Friday, the activist also fingered Bulent Yildirim, the head of IHH, a terror-tied humanitarian NGO behind the 2008 Mavi Marmara Flotilla in Gaza, for inciting Jew hatred in Turkey.

On Thursday, Yildirim told local television station Haber Turk that “Turkish Jews will pay dearly” for Israel’s actions. “Jewish tourists, don’t dare come to Turkey,” he said on television. “Tonight and tomorrow we are going to hold a different kind of protest, we do not have patience anymore. The Zionists are putting the future of the Jews in danger, we can not hold back our youngsters anymore.”

Obama and Erdogan anti-Zionists

The activist said that “from the first days of (the) Gaza operation,” Yildirim ”accused the Turkish Jewish community.” “Yildirim said that Istanbul-Tel Aviv planes are full with Turkish Jews with dual nationality and that they are going to Israel to fight against Palestinians and that the Zionists in Turkey are the main financiers of Israel and Mossad,” the activist said.

“With the announcement of the ground operation, the debates on TV channels became really provocative against the Turkish Jewish community,” the activist said. “They asked the community to put pressure on Israel to stop the operation. Yildirim on TV said, ‘We are stopping people from doing ‘bad things’ to the community. The community has to stop Israel, if not ‘bad things’ can happen.’ And the protests in Ankara and Istanbul started. Today it’s Friday and we expect the continuation of these protests.”


Late Thursday, a New York-based Turkish Jewish activist also decried the violent situation in an interview with The Algemeiner. “The Turkish Jewish Community which has been living in Turkey peacefully for over 500 years, is in grave danger for their lives after the escalation of the events in the Middle East,” he said.


In Turkey, media opposed to Erdoğan pointed to elections next month as the catalyst for his fiery words against Israel, while newspapers close to the prime minister and his AKP party fanned those flames. On Friday’s front page of the pro-AKP newspaper Yeni Safak, the main story is on Operation Protective Edge in Gaza, and the inset carries a photo of Thursday’s night protest.

The main headline reads “Murderers are in Gaza” alongside a photo of an IDF soldier. At the bottom right-hand side is a picture of the vast demonstrations that were held in Istanbul.


Additionally, the New York-based activist cited IHH head Yildirim as saying “these protests are going to increase every day, and Israeli products will be boycotted.”

On Friday, Erdoğan accused Israel of “genocide,” according to Turkey’s Hurriyet Daily News. Erdoğan then said Israel “has never pretended to be pro-peace. It has always tormented [the Palestinian people] and today it is continuing to do so,” with good relations between the two countries ”impossible” under the current circumstances.

“The government and I will never look positively [at Israel] as long as we are in power … [Israel] may seem like the winner for now. But it will eventually be defeated,” Erdoğan said, before calling Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi an “illegitimate tyrant,” for attempting to broker a peace agreement to end the conflict.


The violence in Ankara and Istanbul on Thursday night prompted the Israeli Foreign Ministry to withdraw most of its diplomats and issue a stern statement. Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman instructed diplomats “to make it clear to the Turkish government that Israel strongly protests the flagrant violation of diplomatic rules, including the Vienna Convention, by the Turkish authorities and security forces during the protests, and to stress that Israel holds the Turkish government fully responsible for the safety of the Israeli representatives.”


The Foreign Ministry said, “Following the violent demonstrations last night outside the Israeli diplomatic missions in Ankara and Istanbul, during which stones were thrown, the windows of the consulate in Istanbul were smashed and a Palestinian flag hung on the wall of the home of the Israeli ambassador in Ankara, Minister of Foreign Affairs Avigdor Liberman instructed that the families of Israeli diplomats serving in Turkey were to return to Israel. It was further decided to reduce diplomatic representation in that country to a minimum.”

The Foreign Ministry also blamed Erdoğan’s rhetoric for the upheaval, saying ”the violent protests came after inflammatory remarks made by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, and that Turkish security forces did not take the required preventative action during the protests to prevent the hostile incidents.”



MUSLIM & LEFTIST OUTRAGE as France becomes first country in the world to ban pro-Palestinian demonstrations

Amazingly, it is France’s Socialist government  that has banned protests against Israeli action in Palestine. Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said mass demonstrations planned for the weekend should be halted, because they are a ‘threat to public order’, while opponents said he was ‘criminalizing’ popular support of the Palestinian people.


UK Daily Mail (h/t Susan K)  Thousands were set to march against the ongoing slaughter in Gaza, calling for an immediate end to hostilities in which civilians including many children have been killed.

France Israel Palestinians

But Mr Cazeneuve fears there might be a repeat of the fights between ‘ultra’ Jewish vigilantes and pro-Palestinians which happened after a demonstration last Sunday. Referring to the main Paris march, Mr Cazeneuve said: ‘I consider that the conditions are not right to guarantee security.’

He welcomed a legal procedure instigated by the Paris police prefecture to ban the march, despite it already being widely advertised. Anyone who turns up to an illegal demonstration now faces up to a year in prison, and a 15,000 euro fine. If they hide their faces to avoid being identified, this sentence can be increased to three years, and a 45,000 fine.

Pro-Palestinian protest in Paris turns ugly

Even those who publish details of an illegal rally on social media face up to a year in prison, and a 15,000 euro fine. This can be increased to seven years and a 100,000 fine if the postings lead to violence. Mr Cazeneuve also advised other prefects across France to examine planned marches on a ‘case by case’ basis, and to ban ‘if appropriate’. 

But Michele Sibony, of the (far left) Jewish Union for Peace, said: ‘By outlawing free speech by pro-Palestinian demonstrators, France puts itself in a unique position in the world and Europe.’ And Youssef Boussoumah, of the Party of the Indigenous of the Republic (PIR) said: ‘France is criminalising any show of solidarity with the Palestinian people.  ‘This is an absolute outrage, it is a continuation of attempts to muzzle the Palestinian people and to get them and their supporters in France to surrender absolutely to Israel’s oppression.’

Anti-Israel protesters trap hundreds of Jews in synagogue

Sylvie Perrot, another pro-Palestine activist from Paris, said: ‘Fascist states stop people demonstrating against wars – it is beyond belief that French Socialists are following their example.’ There were false claims made last week that synagogues in Paris had been targeted by pro-Palestinian demonstrators. 

In fact videos showed armed vigilantes from a group called the Jewish Defence League (LDJ) baiting demonstrators into fights. There were no arrests among the LDJ, despite them fighting and smashing up property in full view of the police.  Six pro-Palestine protestors were arrested for a variety of public order offences, but none had been anywhere near Paris synagogues, which remained undamaged. 

A judicial enquiry is set to be launched into the false allegations made about the synagogue attacks – ones which people claim were made up to demonise supporters of Palestine by associating them with anti-Semitism.  On Friday night lawyers for a number of groups hoping to campaign on behalf of Palestine on Saturday lodged an appeal against the ban in a Paris court.

IDF Daily Update from Israel


IDF forces identified approximately 13 terrorists attempting to infiltrate Israel through a terror tunnel constructed by Hamas. The tunnel led underground from the southern Gaza Strip towards the Israeli community of Sufa. ​IDF forces blew away the 13.

Tunnel and weapons used in attempted Hamas infiltration of Israel.

20 Missiles discovered in UN-run school in Gaza.

Times of Israel (h/t Susan K)  UNRWA apologizes to Israel, condemns a ‘flagrant violation of the inviolability of its premises’ and promises investigation. The weapons were found in “the course of the regular inspection of its premises,” UNRWA said in a statement, adding that the school was vacant.

“UNRWA strongly condemns the group or groups responsible for placing the weapons in one of its installations. This is a flagrant violation of the inviolability of its premises under international law,” the statement read.

The discovery would seem to confirm Israel’s oft-repeated claim that Hamas and other Gazan terror groups use civilian infrastructure to hide weapons. “Yet again, Gaza terrorists abuse UN facilities to carry out their violent activities. Hamas and other terror groups are determined to put civilians in harm’s way and will respect nothing in their violent frenzy,” Foreign Ministry spokesperson Yigal Palmor told The Times of Israel.





“Drink the poison,” the doctors of diplomacy tell Israel. “It’ll cure you of all the pain you’re suffering from the last time we told you to drink poison.”


Terrorism is a game. The rules are simple. You have only three choices. 1. Destroy the terrorists. 2. Live with terrorism. 3. Give in to the terrorists. 

Sultan Knish  The first choice comes from the right. The third choice comes from the left. The second choice is what politicians choose when they don’t want to make a decision that will change the status quo.

Despite all the explosions in Gaza, Israel is still stuck on the second choice. The air strikes aren’t meant to destroy Hamas. They are being carried out to degrade its military capabilities which will buy a year or two of relative peace. And that will be followed by more of the same in the summer of 2016 when Hamas will have deadlier Iranian and Syrian weapons that will terrorize more of the country. 

48-viThat doesn’t sound like much of a deal, but these kinds of wars have bought more peace than the peace process ever did. The peace process led to wars. The wars lead to a temporary peace. 

This status quo became the mainstream choice ever since Israelis figured out that the peace process wasn’t going to work and that their leaders weren’t about to defy the UN, the US, the UK and all the other U’s by actually destroying the terrorists.

Bso3YgoCIAA2DP_When Netanyahu first ran against Peres, the difference between the center-right and the center-left was that he campaigned on security first and appeasement second, while Peres campaigned on appeasement first and security second. The center-right has dominated Israeli politics because most Israelis accepted Likud’s security first as a more reasonable position than Labor’s appeasement first.

Living with terrorism was a viable choice in the 80s. It stopped being a viable choice after Israel allowed terrorist states to be set up under the peace process. It’s one thing to manage terrorism in territories that you control. It’s another thing to deal with entire terrorist states inside your borders. Even physical separation isn’t enough. Not when terrorist groups can shell all your major cities. 

quote-hamas-also-elected-to-governmental-leadership-in-palestine-includes-the-jihadists-people-who-zach-wamp-193044Israel responds to that that threat with light air strikes which damage Hamas’ military capabilities. Hamas loses a few commanders, fighters and rockets, but scores a PR victory. Israel buys two years of peace while encouraging its enemies to attack it as a bunch of racist baby killers. Then Hamas replaces the rockets and fighters and launches a new operation and the whole thing begins again.

The left’s argument, framed by Washington Post pundits, Israeli leftists, Obama, assorted diplomats, retired security chiefs, activist busybodies funded by radical billionaires and the entire gang of foreign and domestic enemies, is that Israel has no choice except to default back to choice three; appeasement. 

7_161787454017050_1367775540_n-viIsrael has to gamble on appeasement because its situation is constantly worsening, they argue. What they neglect to mention is that the situation is worsening as part of their pressure on Israel to appease terrorists even though the current problems exist because of earlier appeasement. 

“Drink this poison,” the doctors of diplomacy say. “It’ll cure you of all the aches and pains you’re suffering from the last time we told you to drink poison.”

AbbasZaki-vi“If you don’t drink more poison, you’ll get sicker and die,” they say. And if you do get sicker after drinking more poison, they’ll say it’s your own fault for not drinking enough poison. If only you had given away all of Jerusalem and the Golan Heights, the terrorists wouldn’t be attacking you again.

Israel has been caught between choices two and three, either live with terrorism or make concessions to terrorists, and it has been bouncing between these choices. 

People and politicians choose the option that causes the least pain at any given time. Israel chooses appeasement in response to international pressure. And when appeasement leads to terrorism, it does enough damage to Hamas to serve as a temporary deterrent, without leading to too much international outrage, again choosing the least painful option. 


This is the true cycle that Israel is caught in. It’s not a cycle of violence. It’s a cycle of expediency. 

The first choice, destroying the terrorists, is the most painful option in the short term, but the least painful option in the long term. The third choice, appeasing the terrorists, causes the least pain in the short term, but the most pain in the long term and the medium term. The second choice, living with terrorism, is slightly more painful in the short term, less painful in the medium term, but still quite painful in the long term. 

Israelis have accepted short term and long term pain in exchange for a certain amount of relief in the immediate future. The occasional terrorist attack and the more ominous escalating conflict, an example of which we are seeing now, is accepted in exchange for a year or two of relative quiet.

Golda Meir quoteIt’s easy to criticize Israel for not finishing off Hamas, but let’s look at what is really standing in its way. Israeli Prime Minister Rabin deported 400 Hamas terrorists, including many Hamas leaders. In a Knesset speech he warned that, “We call on all nations and all people to devote their attention to the great danger inherent in Islamic fundamentalism. That is the real and serious danger which threatens the peace of the world in the forthcoming years.”

Instead the international community decided that the peace of the world was threatened by deporting Hamas terrorists. The media spent months covering the “suffering” of the deported Hamas terrorists. The United States voted for a UN resolution condemning Israel and ordering it to “insure the safe and immediate return of all those deported.”

death-to-israel-12The United States Ambassador to the United Nations said that deporting Hamas terrorists does “not contribute to current efforts for peace.”

In 1988, Israel had deported a handful of Hamas and PLO terrorists. One of them, Jibril Mahmoud Rajub, vowed that if Israel didn’t let them back in that they would “infiltrate in as human bombs with explosives belted around our waists.”

Deputy Secretary of State John C. Whitehead warned Israel that if it didn’t reconsider the deportations “damage to our bilateral relations will occur.”

religious_majorities-viIf that was the reaction by the Reagan and Bush administrations to deporting a few terrorists, imagine the reaction by Obama and the EU to a comprehensive effort to force Hamas and the PLO out of Israel. And yet the inevitable can’t be postponed forever.

If Israel had not folded in the peace process, it might have been able to maintain the status quo of the intifada. But the second choice is no longer a viable long term option. The attacks have long since passed the point of mere terrorism and are taking place on a military scale. 

39_180770352054996_336495710_n-viTolerating terrorism has ceased to be a long term strategy. That is something that both the left and the right agree on. The attacks are pushing Israel into choosing either large scale conflict or large scale appeasement. Appeasing terrorists has failed every time. Only destroying them can work.

Israel has a left that is eager to embrace the destructive policies of appeasement without regard to the consequences. It needs a right that is equally heedless of consequences when it comes to war to overcome that pain threshold which prevents it from doing the right thing and reclaiming the future.



BELGIUM: Antwerp pro-Palestinian rally calls for the slaughter of Jews


Dozens of men at an anti-Israel demonstration in Antwerp shouted slogans about slaughtering Jews. Approximately 500 people attended Saturday’s protest in the capital of Belgium’s Flemish region, where one of the speakers used a loudspeaker to chant a call in Arabic that means “slaughter the Jews.”

Times of Israel  The demonstration against Israel’s assault on Hamas in Gaza happened amid a wave of anti-Semitic attacks in Western Europe that coincided with the Israeli actions, and one day before a similar demonstration in Paris escalated into what European Jewish Congress President Moshe Kantor called an “attempted lynch” outside a local synagogue.


The Belgian League Against Anti-Semitism filed a complaint for incitement to violence against participants and organizers of the Antwerp demonstration, dozens of whom were recorded making the calls.

International politics cannot serve as a pretext for incitement to anti-Semitic hatred,” the organization’s president, Joel Rubinfeld, said in a statement.


It also condemned the presence at the demonstration of three local politicians: Karim Bachar of the Flemish Socialist Party; Ikrame Kastit of the Flemish Green Party; and Mohamed Chebaa of Labor.

The protesters also called out “Jews, remember Khaybar, the army of Muhammad is returning,” referencing a seventh-century slaughter against Jews in Saudi Arabia.

Earlier this month, the same call was heard at a demonstration in The Hague in favor of the ISIS Sunni militia in Syria and Iraq. The protest was held six days before Israel launched its military operation in Gaza.

A Jewish woman from Antwerp says that she was told in one shop "we currently don't sell to Jews, out of protest".

A Jewish woman from Antwerp says that she was told in one shop “we currently don’t sell to Jews, out of protest”.

The Simon Wiesenthal Center in a letter to Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte protested that the demonstration was allowed to take place.

“Unless Jihadism in your country is totally quashed, Dutch returnees from their Syrian baptism of fire and Jihadist websites at home will menace Jewish, Muslim and all other citizens of the Netherlands,” wrote Shimon Samuels, the center’s international relations director.


In Paris, approximately 200 Jews were besieged on Sunday inside the synagogue by dozens of young men who confronted police and Jewish guards outside in what turned into a street brawl before police reinforcements dispersed the crowd.

The CRIF umbrella group of Jewish organizations and communities appealed to French President Francois Hollande to temporarily ban “pro-Hamas protests” for fear they would escalate into similar attacks.


BELGIUM 4 dead in Jewish Museum shooting







Stop launching rockets into Israel and you won’t have to go through this

Otherwise, you can look forward to a lot more dead Muslims. YOUR choice.

This is the aftermath of the alleged killing of 4 children on the beach which caused the hysterics in the above video. Chances are they were hit by a Hamas rocket, if they actuality were hit at all. Why would Israel target a beach…unless Hamas was launching rockets  where children were playing? More likely, it is one of their notorious ‘Pallywood’ productions.
