PRO-ISRAEL U.S. Marine Corps Vet attacked by rabid Muslim savages at Washington DC pro-Hamas demo

marine-360x200On Saturday, Breitbart News reported on U.S. Marine Corps veteran Manny Vega’s lone counter protest against a pro-Palestine rally in Washington, D.C., and how a protestor tried to light his Israeli flag on fire while he was holding it. However, the dustup between Mr. Vega and the protestors did not end there.

Breitbart  After Breitbart News left, Mr. Vega found himself surrounded by angry pro-Palestine protestors, and was kicked, spat on and punched by the demonstrators. The police finally showed up to stop the situation around a minute and a half into the video.

“I got attacked by a mob,” Mr. Vega reported to police. “They spit on me, they kicked me, they punched me.”

 Although a few protestors can be seen apologizing to Mr. Vega for the violence in the video, others can be heard continuing to chant and scream at him, and had to be ordered to disperse by the police. “I have a right to be here standing against…you guys,” Mr. Vega told them.

 Before the incident, Manny Vega told Breitbart News that he was unafraid of the protestors. “Hey, I’m not going to be pushed out of here… If I was in Palestine my throat would be slit, but I’m in front of the White House,” Manny said. “This is America, and I have every right to be here with the American flag, and the Israeli flag as a counter protest.”

Look what happens when pro-Hamas demonstrators try to disrupt the businesses of the diamond merchants on 47th Street in Manhattan

Diamond District New York 47th street

To match feature Minerals-Belgium-DiamondsVirtually all the diamond merchants on the block between 5th and 6th Avenue are Jewish, no doubt the reason the Hamas terrorist supporters chose that street upon which to demonstrate. Unexpectedly, the Jewish store owners and their employees erupted in a spontaneous pro-Israel demonstration of their own and drowned out the Muslim and Leftist dhimmi parade.

A lot of these Jewish business owners are the children and grandchildren of people who lived through Kristallnacht. Rest assured, there will never be a repeat of Kristallnacht in New York City.

JERUSALEM: Arab Muslim terrorist drives construction vehicle into a bus in an attempt to kill multiple Israelis

Only one pedestrian in his 20′s was killed because the bus had no passengers. Police shot and killed the Muslim terrorist driver, who flipped the bus on its side with the stolen construction vehicle.

Mideast Israel Palestinians

J POST  A terrorist was shot dead by police in Jerusalem Monday afternoon moments after mowing down and killing a pedestrian with a stolen tractor trailer, and then overturning a bus in the haredi neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah. The unidentified 25-year-old haredi victim died at the scene after sustaining critical wounds, police said. Six other pedestrians, including the driver of the bus, 31-year-old Abed Alahi, were treated for light wounds at an area hospital.

The terrorist killed at the intersection of Kikar Zaks and Bar Lev streets has been identified as Muhammed Naif El-Ja’abis, an east Jerusalem resident with a lengthy police record, an official said.  According to Internal Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch, an intensive investigation has been opened to determine if El-Ja’abis acted alone.

He cautioned that further attempts to carry out terror attacks were possible, and that security forces were prepared to handle such incidents. Jerusalem District police chief Yossi Pariente echoed that police feared that such a terror attack may be attempted given the current tensions in the capital on the background of the IDF’s ongoing operation in the Gaza Strip.

Has David Gregory of ‘Meet the Press’ become a spokesmouth for Hamas in this interview with the Israeli Ambassador to the U.S.?

Apparently, he thinks Israel should care more about Palestinian ‘civilian’ deaths and losing the PR war than about eliminating Hamas terrorism against its people.

Gregory interviews so-called ‘moderate’ Palestinian Authority spokesman who denies Hamas is using human shields and blames Israel for radicalizing Palestinian youth.

IDF Operation Protective Edge UPDATE: Saturday, August 2nd

Following ten days of Hamas attacks against Israel and after repeated rejections of offers to deescalate the situation, the IDF started a new phase of Operation Protective Edge. A large IDF force entered Gaza with their mission to target Hamas’ tunnels that cross under the Israel-Gaza border and enable terrorists to infiltrate Israel and carry out attacks. The IDF intends to impair Hamas’ capability to attack Israel.

Benjamin Netanyahu to US: Don’t second guess me on Hamas. Following the quick collapse of the cease-fire in Gaza, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the White House not to force a truce with Palestinian militants on Israel.

AP (h/t Frederic F)   Sources familiar with conversations between Netanyahu and senior U.S. officials, including Secretary of State John Kerry, say the Israeli leader advised the Obama administration “not to ever second guess me again.” The officials also said Netanyahu said he should be “trusted” on the issue and about the unwillingness of Hamas to enter into and follow through on cease-fire talks.

Half-Way-590-LI-1The Obama administration on Friday condemned “outrageous” violations of an internationally brokered Gaza cease-fire by Palestinian militants and called the apparent abduction of an Israeli soldier a “barbaric” action. The strong reaction came as top Israeli officials questioned the effort to forge the truce, accusing the U.S. and the United Nations of being naive in assuming the radical Hamas movement would adhere with its terms. The officials also blamed the Gulf state of Qatar for not forcing the militants to comply.

Branco-Cartoon-–-Cease-and-DesistWith the cease-fire in tatters fewer than two hours after it took effect with an attack that killed two Israeli troops and left a third missing, President Barack Obama demanded that those responsible release the soldier. Obama and other U.S. officials did not directly blame Hamas for the abduction. But they made clear they hold Hamas responsible for, or having influence over, the actions of all factions in the Gaza Strip. The language was a distinct change from Thursday when Washington was focused on the deaths of Palestinian civilians.
“If they are serious about trying to resolve this situation, that soldier needs to be unconditionally released as soon as possible,” Obama told reporters. He added that it would be difficult to revive the cease-fire without the captive’s release.

Israel-defend-ci“It’s going to be very hard to put a cease-fire back together again if Israelis and the international community can’t feel confident that Hamas can follow through on a cease-fire commitment,” he said. His comment reflected uncertainty in the U.S. and elsewhere that Hamas was actually responsible for the incident or if some other militant group was to blame. At the same time, Obama called the situation in Gaza “heartbreaking” and repeated calls for Israel to do more to prevent Palestinian civilian casualties.
Despite the collapse of the truce, Obama credited Kerry for his work with the United Nations to forge one. He lamented criticism and “nitpicking” of Kerry’s attempts and said the effort would continue.

r620-92dcc4311ae112df7c753586852ed281Kerry negotiated the truce with U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon in a marathon session of phone calls over several days while he was in India on an official visit. Kerry had spent much of the past two weeks in Egypt, Israel, the West Bank and France trying to mediate a cease-fire with Qatar and Turkey playing a major role because of their close ties with Hamas.

Those efforts failed with Israel saying it could not trust Hamas and some Israelis and American pro-Israel groups complaining that the U.S. was treating the group – a foreign terrorist organization as designated by the State Department – as a friend.

HAMAS breaks its own ceasefire again, two Israeli soldiers killed, one feared abducted

The IDF released for publication the name of the soldier feared abducted by terrorists in Gaza. The missing soldier has been named as Second Lieutenant (Platoon Leader) Hadar Goldin, 23, from Kfar Saba. Goldin serves in the Givati Brigade.

INN  The IDF Spokesperson’s office announced Friday that at about 9:30 am, terrorists opened fire on Israeli forces in southern Gaza, triggering a fierce exchange of fire, and preliminary information indicates that there is a concern that a soldier was kidnapped during the fighting. Two other soldiers were reportedly killed in the same gunfight. An investigation is underway and at this time, the IDF maintains a high-level operational and intelligence effort to locate the soldier.

“We are continuing our activities on the ground,” IDF Spokesman Peter Lerner stated.  “Our initial indications suggest a soldier has been abducted by terrorists in an incident where terrorists breached the ceasefire.” The soldier’s family has been notified.

Heavy fighting broke out on the outskirts of Rafah shortly after the UN and US-brokered “humanitarian ceasefire” went into effect, after a group of terrorists allegedly emerged from a tunnel and began opening heavy fire at IDF forces stationed there. At least one report, this time from Walla! News, says that a suicide bomber detonated himself directly next to IDF forces before the fighting began, wounding several soldiers.

Intense clashes ensued; according to Palestinian media sources, thirty people were killed, at least eight terrorists among them – though the number is likely to be higher, as Palestinian sources regularly report terrorist deaths as civilians. Roughly 100 others were wounded, according to reports.

A senior IDF commander stated on condition of anonymity that the condition of the missing soldier is unclear.”We don’t know whether he was wounded during the attack,” he said.

Meanwhile, Islamic Jihad officials have been told by Egypt that talks for a long-term truce have been postponed. “The Egyptians contacted the Islamic Jihad and said Israel told them that a soldier has been captured,” the terror group’s deputy leader Ziad al-Nakhale told AFP. “The talks have been postponed.” 

Half-Way-590-LI

Hamas has tried to blame the broken cease-fire on Israel, according to AFP. “It is the occupation which violated the ceasefire. The Palestinian resistance acted based on… the right to self defense (and) to stop the massacres of our people,” Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhum said in a statement. Hamas also claimed reports of the abduction – which it has not confirmed or denied, at least in English-speaking media – were simply “justification for Israel retreating from the truce, and a cover-up for massacres especially in Rafah.”

The United Nations said it was informed by Israel of “a serious incident this morning after the start of the humanitarian ceasefire at 8:00 am (0500 GMT), involving a tunnel behind IDF (army) lines in the Rafah area.”

“Two soldiers were reportedly killed, as well as a number of Palestinians,” said a statement from the UN special coordinator for Middle East peace, Robert Serry. “If corroborated, this would constitute a serious violation of the humanitarian ceasefire… by Gazan militant factions, which should be condemned in the strongest terms,” the statement said.

ISRAEL’s new drone technology takes out 40 mosques (aka rocket storage centers) in Gaza in one night

The Israeli Air Force bombed 40 mosques in Gaza Tuesday night, July 30, in the most extensive operation against Hamas’ religious institutions-cum-military bases so far. In total, at least 50 mosques have been blown up along with their stockpiles of rockets and arms caches. AWESOME!

Israeli onslaught methodically shrinks Gaza by 40%

DEBKA  These concentrated air strikes on rocket arsenals are as integral to Operation Protective Edge as the ground work in destroying tunnels. They have been stepped up in advance of the preparations launched by the government on Wednesday for the possible termination of the IDF ground operation in the Gaza Strip and the withdrawal of troops.

140730080236-restricted-01-israel-gaza-0730-horizontal-large-gallery

DEBKAfile‘s sources say that the order to end the ground operation in Gaza would not mean that the war is over. There are no illusions about the Palestinian extremist groups laying down their arms. In practical terms, therefore, Israeli troops will regroup and spread out along the border as a barrier against future Hamas attempts to keep up its terror offensive by means of cross-border commando raids using undiscovered tunnels and firing rockets and mortars into Israel.

Israel’s war planners believe the IDF ranged outside the Gaza border is capable of repelling these assaults by means of tank and artillery fire and air force drones. The confrontation with Hamas will thus morph into an ongoing war of attrition.

This past week has also seen the first deployment in action of the Air Force’s brand new Hermes 900 UAV, an unmanned aircraft also known as the Star. Never before used in wartime operations, the drone’s debut was rushed forward because of its useful properties: The aircraft can fly nonstop for 30 hours at an altitude of 30,000 feet, the while conducting surveillance, gathering intelligence and relaying communications to and from military personnel in the field.  

Hermes_900_uas

Star carries 300 kg of attack weaponry. Its cockpit and operating systems are superior to previous models, enabling commander, operator and crew to work together seamlessly. It has been functioning almost nonstop in the Gaza operation with great success.

Manufactured by Elbit Systems, the drone had until this week only flown test flights and was not scheduled to become operational until 2015. But Operation Protective Edge called for an upgraded version of the Air Force’s Hermes 450 – a UAV that flies similar missions — and so the 900 was fast-tracked into the fleet.

As it is relatively untested in battle, the Star is only being used for certain types of missions. When the current war ends, the air force will resume further study of its performance in emergency situations and diverse altitudes and weather conditions.

GOOD NEWS! Anti-Muslim sentiment (incorrectly dubbed “Islamophobia”) is on the rise in the U.S.

Yesterday I and many others received a press release titled “Stop Hamas – Princess Yasmine become terrorist” [sic]. Attached to the release were a boatload of jpegs depicting Prince Aladdin, Princess Jasmine, Bart Simpson, and a variety of other cartoon characters as “terrorists of Hamas.”

Newsweek  The artist, “aleXsandro Palombo,” called them “A powerful series of Art Piece about the war in Gaza. A powerful series to meditate. An original awareness campaign focused on the devastating problem of terrorism that affects Israel and Palestine and on child soldiers.”

While the images might appear to some to be funny in a perverse sort of way — they are “more than a little racist” (Only if you consider Islam a ‘race’) — they underlie shifting attitudes towards Arabs and Muslims in America, especially among Republicans.

Since 2010, Americans’ opinions of Arabs and Muslims have declined steadily, according to a poll released by the Arab American Institute on July 29:

Stop-Hamas-Child-Abuse-Art-Campaign-Children-Palestine-Gaza-Israel-War-Jewish-Middle-East-Terrorism-Human-Rights-Awareness-Poster-Cartoons-Iconic-Disney-Humor-Chic-aleXsandro-Palombo-1

Since we first began our polling on American attitudes toward Arabs and Muslims in 2010, there has been continued erosion in the favorable ratings given to both communities, posing a threat to the rights of Arab Americans and American Muslims. Favorable attitudes have continued to decline – from 43% in 2010 to 32% in 2014 for Arabs; and from 35% in 2010 to 27% in 2014 for Muslims.

“The fact that you have people who are African American or Latino doing immigration issues or people who are Jewish in the State Department, it’s not called into question that they are Americans and are operating as Americans,” said Dr. James Zogby (an Arab himself)  of Zogby Analytics, which conducted research for the poll. “But in the case of people of Arab descent, the suspicion is — actually, the allegation is made — they can’t do the job, they can’t be objective,” he said. “And so we wanted to see how widespread those attitudes were. And what we find is, among Republicans, it’s the majority.”

Perhaps not surprisingly, the poll found that those who actually know Arabs or Muslims are much less likely to view them unfavorably.

Which brings us back to Mr. Palombo’s cartoons. I reached out to Palombo’s press person to ask if the artist personally knew any Arabs or Muslims. Her response: “Yes of course !” 

10492452_781267265258653_3517145494716313821_n

When asked what Palombo thought of accusations that his cartoons are racist, she said in an email,

That’s a false and stupid accusation. Jezebel has voluntarily alterate Palombo’s series by publishing only 3 of the 38 artworks. They clearly wanted to alterate the meaning of the campaign, just to create a buzz on the internet. Palombo’s work is against Hamas, against terrorism and terror, aleXsandro is not racist as depicted by Jezebel. He’s always fighting  for human rights.

If Hamas was building gas chambers and ovens for the Jews, would the world still tell Israel to show restraint and go quietly to the slaughter?

The cries of “disproportionate response” from the Western media grow ever louder.

So-called “moderate” Palestinian Authority leader accuses Jews of being the new Nazis and says Jews brought the Holocaust upon themselves and now are perpetrating a Holocaust upon the people of Gaza.

Don’tcha just love it when IslamoNazis accuse everyone who tries to defend themselves against them of being Nazis? Putz.
