Hamas unknowingly acts out a verse from Psalms and talks about another ceasefire while proclaiming to “remove the occupier… from whole of Palestine.” “I am (for) peace, and when I speak, they are for war” is written in Psalms, Chapter 120, verse 7.
As another round of missile attacks from Hamas-controlled Gaza on Israel, followed by IDF retaliation, continues, Hamas has simultaneously tried to coax Israel into agreeing to another “ceasefire” while announcing virtually the same day it is determined to continue its “resistance,” the Arab code word for terrorism.
Hamas and allied terrorists have attacked Israel with more than a dozen missiles the past week, drawing the standard military retaliation against “ticking bomb” terrorists, smuggling tunnels and weapons warehouses.
In a new media twist, Hamas spokesman, Fawzi Barhoum, accused Israel of an "unjustified escalation against Gaza” without denying, or even mentioning, the rocket attacks.
Simultaneously, senior Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Zahar referred on Friday to the strategy of terror-for-concessions, specifically its terrorizing Jews in Gush Katif until the Israeli government capitulated and decided not only to expel them but also to withdraw all military forces from Gaza and turn over to Hamas all of the destroyed Jewish communities. "Hamas has developed its way and succeeded in removing the occupier from Gaza, and will remove him from the whole of Palestine,” he said...
“(We) will always remain united and determined to liberate Palestine and its holy sites,” Hamas stated.
The terrorist organisation also charged the United States and Western countries with giving Israel financial and military support but did not note that Hamas also receives Western funding.

Ignoring a truth is the most effective way to conceal and make people forget about it. That is why, it took just a couple of days for international anti-Israel bigots, in press and politicians, to recover from initial shock, caused by the US presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich revelation that so-called Palestinians are ''invented'' people. Now the subject is covered by silence! There are no political calls to review the historic facts and press is also not interested in any digging for the truth.
Free Pollard, 26 Years is too Much
Jewish Agency Chairman Natan Sharansky has called for the immediate release of Jonathan Pollard: “…today when there is growing consensus for Pollard’s release among former Pentagon and CIA officials, lawyers, community leaders, the Israeli government and Jewish-American leaders, it’s time to loudly demand his release.”
Hamas: Another Clear Declaration of Intention
Emboldened Hamas renews call for the end of Israel. Ismail Haniyeh, Gaza's de facto prime minister, told the rally: "We affirm that armed resistance is our strategic option and the only way to liberate our land, from the (Mediterranean) sea to the River (Jordan). God willing, Hamas will lead the people... to the uprising until we liberate Palestine, all of Palestine."
Cutting Funds to UNRWA is Long Overdue
Holland is reviewing its policy of funding the UNRWA agency for Arab ”refugees," which treats them differently from other refugees. Foreign Minister Uri Rosenthal said the government will “thoroughly review” its annual contribution of approximately $30 million
Example of ‘Palestinian’ Co-operation
A Gaza-based NGO called the Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) condemned the Hamas government of Gaza. The delegation was to participate in a medical conference in Jerusalem, and Israel had given a green light for all 19 of its members to travel through its territory. Hamas vetoed the participation of five people who had been selected by the PA in Ramallah, which is led by rival terror group Fatah.
IDF Radio's commander has instructed the station's reporters to prefer the term "Judea and Samaria" (Yehuda veShomron) to "the West Bank." The latter phrase dates from the 19-year interval between 1948 and 1967 during which the Biblical heartland was under Jordanian control.
Turkey is doing its utmost to head off a bill in the French National Assembly that would criminalise the denial of the Armenian genocide of 1915. The Armenians claim that one and a half million Armenians died as result of mass deportations by the Turkish Ottomans. (Almost 100 years passed, but world is still unwilling to condemn the genocide which set the precedent for the Holocaust, Pol Pot extermination of almost two million Cambodians and Genocide of Tutsis in Rwanda!)
UN Security Council members condemned Israel for the planned Jewish construction in Judea and Samaria as well as for ‘price tag’ vandalism. The condemnation was led by (‘friends’ of Israel) Britain, France, Germany and Portugal. (If only UN was so quick to condemn Islamic terror and so-called Palestinian violence against Jews and Jewish properties. Almost 60% of all UN resolutions are anti-Israel! Brutal biting of veiled Muslim woman on the street of Cairo does not bother the ‘Unless Nothing’!)
Arab terrorism targeting Jews in Ramle is on the rise, but local residents say police are afraid to confront local Arabs and deal with the problem. Shortly after the car of a local religious school principal was torched on Thursday there was also a fire at a nearby synagogue in the heart of the al-Grebe neighborhood in Ramle.

US Start to Seriously Worry about
"Despite the efforts to disrupt the Iranian nuclear program, they
have reached a point where they can assemble a bomb in a year or potentially
less," said US Secretary of Defence Leon Panetta. "That's a red line
for us and that's a red line, obviously, for the Israelis," he said.

“Let us all recall and emulate the Maccabees, those heroic Jewish

Immediately after Nordine Amrani, 33, armed with grenades went
on a killing spree in Belgian city of
A 23-month-old baby died in a hospital late after being wounded in the attack near a Christmas market in a city centre square... Others killed in the attack included two teenage boys, aged 15 and 17, and a 75-year-old woman… Some 52 people were treated for injuries by medics.
…The man acted alone in the attack in Place St. Lambert, and police are
not looking for other suspects, said
Police had asked the attacker, who had been previously convicted on drugs and weapons offences, but had never been charged with terror offences. During Amrani's 40 months in jail, he was not diagnosed with any mental disorder or seen to be politicized before being released on conditional parole. (One does not commit suicide attack, killing strangers with grenades in a city square unless – it is act of terror! When the right-wing anti-Islamic extremists commit terror acts they immediately identified as such and instantly condemned by press and government officials. We will never win the war against Islamic terror at our door steps by pretending that it does not exist!)
