UN Enabling Hamas’s War Machine.

This ceasefire initiative is rather disturbing: it requires no meaningful concessions on the part of Hamas. It leaves, for example, wholly intact Hamas’s extremist ideology, which calls for the destruction of Israel, and does not demand that Hamas lay down its weapons.

A ceasefire may sound good, but in the current circumstances it will send a deadly message to Hamas and the other terror factions in the Gaza Strip: namely, that long-term terror bombardment of Israel gets you economic and humanitarian projects funded by the United Nations and Western donors, and perhaps even a seaport and airport. The ceasefire would give Hamas five to ten years to continue amassing weapons, tightening its grip on the Gaza Strip, and preparing for its next war with Israel.

Any ceasefire agreement will be perceived as a reward for Hamas-sponsored terrorism and violence against Israel. These negotiations will spur other terrorist groups around the world to continue their attacks with the hope of gaining legitimacy and forcing the UN and the international community to negotiate also with them.

Why is the UN apparently prepared to invest hundreds of millions of dollars in the Gaza Strip while keeping Hamas in power and even allowing it to become stronger? Why is the UN being allowed to play the role of saviour of Hamas?

The Palestinian Hamas terrorist group that controls the Gaza Strip has reportedly accepted, in principle, an Egyptian and United Nations initiative for a long-term ceasefire with Israel. According to some reports, the initiative calls for a ceasefire of five to ten years in return for the easing of economic sanctions and humanitarian and economic aid to the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.

This ceasefire initiative is rather disturbing: it requires no meaningful concessions on the part of Hamas. It leaves, for example, wholly intact Hamas’s extremist ideology, which calls for the destruction of Israel, and does not demand that Hamas lay down its weapons.

Essentially, the message to Hamas from the international community is that it will reap rich rewards for nothing more than temporarily halting its terror attacks on Israel.

As the past few weeks have shown, Hamas appears to be more than willing to sit quietly in order to get the benefits and privileges offered by Egypt and the UN. Hamas has been facing a severe crisis as the result of the economic sanctions imposed on the Gaza Strip, particularly those initiated by its rivals in the Palestinian Authority government of President Mahmoud Abbas. Thus, Hamas is grabbing hold of the Egyptian and UN proposal as a kind of life-vest.

Once the ceasefire agreement goes into effect, Hamas will have additional time to continue amassing weapons and tightening its grip on the Gaza Strip.

Under the umbrella of the ceasefire, Hamas will be able to continue building new tunnels that will be used to infiltrate Israel to kill civilians and soldiers. Hamas will also be able to continue smuggling weapons into the Gaza Strip through tunnels along the border between the Gaza Strip and Egypt. Thanks to the Egyptian and UN-brokered ceasefire agreement, Hamas will be able to do all these things without having to worry about an Israeli military response.

The proposed ceasefire agreement will give Hamas five to ten years to prepare for the next war with Israel. During this period, Hamas will have recruited tens of thousands of more Palestinians into its ranks, turning them into jihadists in preparation for the jihad (holy war) against Israel.

In other words, the proposed ceasefire agreement absolves Hamas, the de facto government in the coastal enclave, of its duties and responsibilities towards its own constituents. Hamas will no longer have to worry about improving the living conditions of the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip because the UN and the rest of the international community will be fulfilling that job.

The international community and the UN will, according to the proposed ceasefire, attend to the needs of the Palestinian population and will even launch various economic and humanitarian projects in the Gaza Strip, while Hamas leaders will be sitting in their luxurious offices and homes and laughing at the duped Western donors, who will even be funding fuel and electricity supplies to the people living under its rule.

Worse, the proposed agreement, now being discussed by Hamas leaders with Egyptian and UN officials, offers the Hamas rulers a seaport and airport in the nearby Egyptian peninsula of Sinai. Of course, there is no guarantee that Hamas will not use these ports to smuggle weapons into the Gaza Strip. Those who believe that the Egyptians will be able to prevent the smuggling of weapons into the Gaza Strip are living under the dangerous illusion of a bribery-free Middle East.

Besides, the Egyptian authorities already have their hands full with the various Islamist terrorist groups that have been operating in the Sinai Peninsula in recent years. If the Egyptian army and other security agencies have thus far been unable to root out the problem of the terror groups in Sinai, how exactly are they supposed to deal with Hamas’s weapons smuggling?

Moreover, what about Hamas’s involvement with some of the jihadi groups in Sinai? For the past few years, reports have surfaced in several Arab media outlets about Hamas’s cooperation with some of these groups in carrying out terror attacks against the Egyptian military and civilians in Sinai.

Far more worrying is that any ceasefire agreement will be perceived as a reward for Hamas-sponsored terrorism and violence against Israel. Since last March, Hamas has been dispatching thousands of Palestinians, including women and children, to the border with Israel as part of the so-called March of Return. As part of these protests, Palestinian have been throwing explosive devices, petrol bombs and stones at Israeli soldiers. They have also been launching hundreds of flaming kites and balloons at Israeli communities along the border with the Gaza Strip, and causing fires that have destroyed tens of thousands of acres of agricultural fieldsand forests.

As if that were not enough, Hamas and other Palestinian terror groups in the Gaza Strip last week again fired more than 180 rockets and projectiles at Israeli communities.

Such rocket attacks are far from uncommon; they have been taking place since Israel withdrew from the Gaza Strip in 2005. It was then that Israel handed the entire Gaza Strip to the Mahmoud Abbas’s Palestinian Authority (PA). In 2007, Hamas violently ejected the PA from the Gaza Strip, and has been in control of the territory since then.

A ceasefire may sound good, but in the current circumstances it will send a deadly message to Hamas and the other terror factions in the Gaza Strip: namely, that long-term terror bombardment of Israel gets you economic and humanitarian projects funded by the United Nations and Western donors and, if things go well, perhaps even a seaport and airport.

The proposed ceasefire agreement, therefore, is nothing but a UN and Egyptian bribe to Hamas to agree to a temporary halt of terror attacks against Israel. Appeasing terrorists, however, is a recipe for perpetuating and escalating the conflict and emboldening the terrorists. In addition, it will only increase Hamas’s appetite to continue extorting Israel and the rest of the world for more concessions.

Negotiating with Hamas grants legitimacy to terror groups, making them appear as acceptable parties. By contrast, one might note that the UN never considered initiating a negotiated ceasefire between the US and Osama bin Laden’s Al-Qaeda terror group or ISIS. The current negotiations that the Egyptians and the UN are conducting with Hamas to achieve a ceasefire with Israel sends precisely the wrong message to jihadi groups around the world. These negotiations will, in fact, spur these groups to continue their terror attacks with the hope of gaining legitimacy and forcing the international community to follow suit and negotiate also with them, as they have been doing with Hamas. Is there any difference between Hamas and Al-Qaeda, ISIS and Boko Haram, the so-called Islamic State in Western Africa? Not really.

Hamas, as mentioned, is of course happy that the Egyptians, the UN and other international parties are chasing it and literally begging it to accept a temporary truce with Israel, especially under such golden conditions. Hamas has nothing to lose by agreeing to a ceasefire that will allow it further to strengthen its military power in the Gaza Strip, while not being required to cease bad behavior or do anything to help its own people.

A sign of Hamas’s elation can be found in a statement issued by its leaders in the Gaza Strip on August 8, 2018. The statement, which was issued after a series of meetings between Hamas and other Palestinian terror groups, added that Hamas will not pay any “political price” for the lifting of the sanctions on the Gaza Strip.

So here we have Hamas itself making it clear that even if a ceasefire agreement is achieved with Israel, the terror group will never abandon its dream of pursuing the fight until Israel is replaced with an Islamist state.

We are left with some questions: Why is the United Nations negotiating with a terror group that is sworn to Israel’s destruction? Why, instead, are the UN and Egypt and other parties not demanding that Hamas disarm and relinquish control of the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, who have been held hostage for the past 11 years? Why is the UN apparently prepared to invest hundreds of millions of dollars in the Gaza Strip while keeping Hamas in power and even allowing it to become stronger? Why is the UN being allowed to play the role of saviour of Hamas? The next time Hamas targets Israeli civilians, perhaps the UN and all those who are now trying to appease Hamas will have some answers.

‘They Spit When I Walked in the Street’: The ‘New Anti-Semitism’ in France.

Another horror story about Jews living in Islamised France. Every day it is becoming more apparent that life for French Jews is untenable. The French government says that they want their Jews to stay in France. However, they are unwilling and incapable of confronting France’s growing Muslim population, because of the political consequences such a stance would bring them.

For example, in a city such as Marseilles, which is close to 40% Muslim, can one expect Mayor Jean-Claude Gaudin to have a strong stance against Muslim anti-Semitism? Absolutely not. How can Gaudin condemn much of Marseilles’ Muslim community for its anti-Semitism? He can’t. He would never be reelected. The French Muslim population’s massive voting power is what is preventing most French politicians (including President Macron) from condemning French Muslims for their violent Jew-hatred.

What is shocking is that much of the U.S Jewish leadership is condemning President Trump for his travel ban, which includes several Muslim/Jihad countries. One must question their sanity and agenda, since most of them know the consequences that mass Muslim immigration has had on France’s Jews. U.S Jews should be supporting the good President wholeheartedly, since he is preventing (or at least reducing) this horror from reaching the United States.

Israel must also do a better job of integrating French Jews (especially with medical degrees) into Israeli society. Many French degrees are not recognized in Israel. French Jews are being forced to deal with unacceptable levels of bureaucracy, (although improvements are slowly being made) before their professional credentials are recognized. This is causing many Jews to postpone their immigration to Israel and instead remain in France. It is outrageous for Israel to put French Jewish immigrants through such an ordeal. Most French Jews are very Zionist, and want to immigrate to Israel. The Israeli government must make it easier for French Jews to do just that.

 “‘The Muslims Spit When I Walked in the Street’ I punched two of them and they backed off, Muslims are cowards if you confront them. The ‘New Anti-Semitism’ in France,”

PARIS — The solemn boulevards and quiet side streets of the 17th Arrondissement in Paris suggest Jewish life in France is vibrant: There is a new profusion of kosher groceries and restaurants, and about 15 synagogues, up from only a handful two decades ago.

But for residents like Joanna Galilli, this area in northwestern Paris represents a tactical retreat. It has become a haven for many Jews who say they have faced harassment in areas with growing Muslim populations. Ms. Galilli, 28, moved to the neighborhood this year from a Parisian suburb where “anti-Semitism is pretty high,” she said, “and you feel it enormously.”

“They spit when I walked in the street,” she said, describing reactions when she wore a Star of David. I told her I had the same done to me, but I had hit them back.

France has a painful history of anti-Semitism, with its worst hours coming in the 1930s and during the German occupation in World War II. But in recent months, an impassioned debate has erupted over how to address what commentators are calling the “new anti-Semitism,” as Jewish groups and academic researchers trace a wave of anti-Semitic acts to France’s growing Muslim population.

Nearly 40 percent of violent acts classified as racially or religiously motivated were committed against Jews in 2017, though Jews make up less than 1 percent of France’s population. Anti-Semitic acts increased by 20 percent from 2016, a rise the Interior Ministry called “preoccupying.”

In 2011, the French government stopped categorising those deemed responsible for anti-Semitic acts, making it more difficult to trace the origins. But before then, Muslims had been the largest group identified as perpetrators, according to research by a leading academic. Often the spikes in violence coincided with flare-ups in the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, according to researchers….

Turkey’s Erdogan gets destroyed by Israel’s PM after saying Jews have no right to have a state.

After the dictator of Turkey Expressed outrage over Israel’s Nation-State Law and denied the right of right of the Jewish people to have a state, Benjamin Netanyahu humiliated Turkey’s Erdogan with a post on social media with the following description:

“Erdogan is massacring Syrians and Kurds and has jailed tens of thousands of his citizens. The fact that the great ‘democrat’ Erdogan is attacking the Nation-State Law is the greatest compliment for this law….Turkey, under Erdogan’s rule, is becoming a dark dictatorship whereas Israel scrupulously maintains equal rights for all its citizens, both before and after introducing this law…”

Recently the Israeli parliament approved a new law which guarantees its right to be the homeland of the Jewish people.
Israel is the only Jewish state in the world.
The Nation-State Law preserves Israel’s right to self-determination as a Jewish democratic state.
Israel is the only place in the entire Middle East where Christians are safe and women are not considered second class citizens.
As the only democracy in the Middle East, only Israel can defend the Christian holy places and Jews in Jerusalem.

Erdogan invaded Kurdish Afrin in Syria in order to “fight ISIS”, but in reality he bombs Kurdish civilians.
Turkey is committing war crimes against the Kurds. Why is the world silent?
There are still countries that deny the Armenian genocide. Turkey is pressuring countries not to recognize Armenian Genocide because Turkey wants to repeat it with the Kurds.
All Western countries must support the legitimate efforts of the Kurdish people to achieve their own state.
The European Union must cancel all agreements with the Islamic state of Turkey.

The European Union signed a failed immigration agreement with Turkey.
The European Union has promised to give Ankara €6bn (£4.7bn) to help the estimated 2.7 million ‘Refugees’ now stuck on Turkish soil.
Turkey has agreed to take back any asylum seekers who land in Greece.
Turkey promised to help stem the flow of migrants to Europe in return for cash.
But now Turkey uses this agreement to blackmail the EU, every few months Turkey threatens to flood Europe with illegal immigrants if they refuse to give Turkey billions of dollars.

IDF Patriot missiles down Syrian fighter jet penetrating into Israeli airspace.

Israel shot at Syrian fighter planes within Israeli airspace as sirens sounded in northern Israel both in the Golan Heights and the Jordan Valley.

Two Patriot missiles were launched at a Syrian Sukhoi fighter jet that infiltrated about one mile into Israeli airspace, an IDF spokesman said.

The IDF monitored the fighter jet, which was then intercepted by the Patriot missiles.

Israel activated its anti-missile system as sirens sounded in the Golan and Emek HaYarden regional councils and the city of Katzrin.

Residents in the north have received the OK to leave bomb shelters.

Here is a video of the Israeli Patriot system being activated.

According to Sky News Arabia, the plane crashed inside Syria, in the Yarmouk Basin. It was not immediately clear if the pilot ejected before the fighter jet was shot down.

The military said it had noticed increased Syrian air force activity in the area since the morning.

The IDF and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have said Israel will continue to enforce the 1974 Separation of Forces Agreement, which requires Syria to abide by a demilitarized zone between the two countries

It was the first time that Israel shot down a Syrian fighter jet since 2014, when another Russian-made Sukhoi fighter jet entered Israeli airspace and was targeted with a Patriot missile.

On Monday, Israel for the first time used David’s Sling, an anti-missile system for longer-range rockets after alarms were activated in the north.
