An Al-Qaeda-centered three-stage plan for the encircling and destruction of Israel has been shared and discussed among global jihadists. On Monday, Al-Qaeda's number two terrorist released a lengthy video that also focused, in part, on destroying Israel. The three-stage plan, as explained in the jihadist communication, is as follows:
Phase 1: "Promoting and promulgating the idea that only by way of jihad can an enemy whose goal is undermining Islam be defeated."
Phase 2: Inserting jihadist cells into the ring states (i.e., those entities surrounding Israel - Lebanon, Egypt, Jordan, Syria, and the PA) to carry out attacks aimed at shaking up regional stability. Such actions include rocket fire at Israel and terrorist bombings at Sinai resorts, "which drag the enemy into a long war of attrition," the jihadist communications say.
Phase 3: "Spreading great fear in the hearts of the Crusader enemy" and carrying out attacks in nations currently supporting the United States." Examples given in the jihadist communications include China, Russia, Indonesia, North Africa, and states in the heart of Africa, as well. According to ITRR, this last stage includes recruitment for Al-Qaeda in the secondary ring of states around Israel, such as among Kurds, Africans and Turks. Together with the fear instilled in the West, a multinational jihad on Jerusalem will then be ready to commence.
The purpose of the foregoing plan, jihadist communications say, is "to attack and destroy Crusader interests", to "lift the siege on Palestine", to "exterminate and eliminate the Jews", and to "enforce the reign of Islam."
…just as one leaves the gun, the next is already in place ready to be fired at the target." The "connected" Al-Qaeda source boasts: "We have achieved infiltration into the highest levels of all the nations," claiming that the global jihadist network has information directly from within the American defense bureaucracy, as well as from individual American soldiers. "The next stage, before the all-out war, is a war of attrition with painful strikes against the Jews within and outside (Israel).
…Specifically, the Al-Qaeda-affiliated source says that terror cells must next operate in Syria, in order to hit Western interests in such as way as to destabilize the Assad regime, and in order to strike at Israelis by way of Syria.
…Ayman al-Zawahiri also emphasized the jihad against the Jewish State. "There is no liberation of Palestine but by way of jihad," al-Zawahiri said. "I already told the Palestinians in the past that this is the only proper way and that Israel has many vulnerable interests, making it easy to hit." (We are witnessing this plan in action!)

Jews Arrested on the Way to Joseph's Tomb
Four Jewish pilgrims from the United States were arrested before dawn on Friday in Shechem as they sought to pray at Joseph's Tomb. The Bratslav Hassidic group were confronted at gunpoint by Palestinian Authority police and taken into custody before reaching the grave site. "It is outrageous that this discrimination and harassment is going on while the PA is supported through funding by the American and EU governments. Joseph's tomb must be reopened for full free access for all Jewish people regardless of their citizenship," said David Ha'ivri of the Shomron Liaison Office.
Israel Among World's Most Educated Countries
According to the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) 45% of Israelis completing university degrees. Israel ranks ahead of countries such as Japan (44%), the US (41%), the UK (37%), only lagging behind Canada (50%). The statistic is especially significant considering Israel's relatively low GDP per capita, which at $27,690 ranks the 12th lowest out of all 34 OECD member states.
Senior Iranian religious leader Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami said that Iran is already a nuclear state and that Americans have not realised that. “The United States says it will not allow Iran to be nuclear, but it is so blind that it hasn’t noticed that Iran has already become a nuclear state.”
Austrian Fascists Danced on Holocaust Remembrance Day
Approximately 3,000 fascists “celebrated” Holocaust day at an annual dance while the United Nations remembered its horrors. The annual Wiener Korporationsring (WKR) event took place at the Hofburg palace, the former imperial residence, on International Holocaust Remembrance Day. It was attended by Le Pen, head of the right-wing National Front in France, and Heinz-Christian Strache, head of Austria's far-right Freedom Party (FPOe). Swedish and Flemish right-wing leaders also were present as well as members of Germany’s far-right Republikaner party. (The cancer of hate is still alive and must be irradicated!)
Islamic Democracy in Action
1. According to UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay “There's torture, extrajudicial executions, rape of both men and women.” Former rebel groups are holding as many as 8,000 prisoners in 60 makeshift detention centres around the country. Pillay says she is particularly concerned about sub-Saharan African detainees whom the brigades automatically brand as fighters for the late Libyan dictator Muammar Qaddafi.
2. Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood categorically rejects dialogue with Israel. Mahmoud Ghazlan stated that the Islamist group’s position is “clear and not up for discussion.” Ghazlan denied his organisation had been contacted by Israel’s embassy in Cairo and said it would “reject any request from the Israeli embassy to meet with leaders of the Brotherhood.”
1. IDF Intelligence head Aviv Kochavi gave a chilling presentation at the Herzliya Conference on Israeli policy, telling listeners that Israel's enemies had 200,000 rockets and missiles pointed at the country. Most of the missiles have a range of about 40 kilometers - the range of Qassam and most Katyusha rockets - but thousands of missiles have ranges of hundreds of kilometers, making every location in Israel within their reach.
Quote of the Week:
“Many people, especially ignorant people, want to punish you for speaking the truth, for being correct, for being you. Never apologize for being correct, or for being years ahead of your time. If you’re right and you know it, speak your mind. Speak your mind. Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is still the truth.” - Mohandas Ghandi
The Biblical Land Titles
by Steven Shamrak
Christianity and Islam insist they have inherited the Jewish tradition and believe in the monotheistic G-d. All three religions include Torah (Old Testimonies) as the written word of G-d. It is considered a great sin to disobey or falsify the words of the Almighty! I would like to present for your perusal two biblical land titles:
“Sarah died in Kiriatharba (Hebron) …” “Avraham weighed-out for Ephron the silver that he spoke of in the hearing of the sons of Cheis, four hundred silver shekel, negotiable currency.” “This became Avraham's (possession) through a purchase before the eyes of the sons of Cheis...” (Genesis 23:2, 16, 18)
Abraham made sure the purchase of land at Hebron was recorded as a legal sale, not as a gift.
“Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, to you have I given it, as I spoke unto Moses. From the wilderness, and this Lebanon, even unto the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the Great Sea (Mediterranean sea) toward the going down of the sun, shall be your border.” (Joshua1:3, 4; Re: Deuteronomy 11:24)
“This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Judah according to their families.” “Ashdod, its towns and its villages; Gaza, its towns and its villages; unto the Brook of Egypt, the Great Sea being the border thereof.” (Joshua15:20, 47)
Religious people believe that all that is written in the Torah by G-d is purposeful. Therefore, if you are a Jew, Christian or Muslim you must accept the will of G-d and recognise the right of the Jewish people to live on all the land given to them by G-d. Otherwise, you have been living a life of self-deception or hypocrisy.
