The IDF on Friday morning attacked east of Gaza City and in the center of the Gaza Strip, following the launch of six rockets. The IDF spokesman said that a site for the production of Hamas weapons had been attacked.
Someone asked how many factories and military bases Hamas still has. After all, in the past month the IDF has reported destroying dozens of them and there are still new industrial assets and military compounds to bomb without harming, God forbid, a single Arab terrorist.
Those are killed only in “work accidents” when the explosives they launch using balloons they fill with helium that Israel supplies to hospitals in Gaza explode in their hands...
What to do? Kill the enemy. This is what a defense army is supposed to do. Not to contain the enemy’s rockets with the Iron Dome ingenious invention at a cost of NIS 30,000 per interception...
Earlier, Hamas issued a warning through Qatari mediator Muhammad al-Amadi that it would continue to fire on Israel beyond the Envelope settlements which the Netanyahu and Gantz government are conceding as gun fodder, if Israel did not comply with its new demands regarding the transfer of medical equipment to the Gaza Strip, al-Akhbar reported.
They must be running out of helium!
The terrorist organization also threatened that the launching of incendiary and explosive balloons at Israel would intensify in the coming days, in order to increase the pressure on Israel.
If only Israel had a strong army that could protect it from gangs of Arab thugs. It really should have started one. (The problem is, that Israel allows the Anti-Semitic world deny it the same right of self-defence which all other countries are taking for granted!)

Rabbi Shay Ohayon was murdered in Petah Tikva - on the street of Jewish state, Israel. He was killed because he was a Jew! Immediately, the PA and 'medical expats' experts' of the Anti-Semitic media claimed that the terrorist is mentally ill. They have been teaching this sickness to their children in kindergartens and schools for over 70 years. All of the society of the so-called Palestinians is demented! No wonder, that there are too many "mentally ill" people among fake Palestinians. JLM - Jewish Lives Matter! The terror against Jews in Israel can be stopped, by full reclamation of Jewish ownership of all Jewish ancestral land! (see “Sinai Option”)
A royal decree ending the decades-long economic boycott of Israel was issued by United Arab Emirates President Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan. The decree allows trade and financial agreements between the two countries in support of “bilateral cooperation. On Monday, El Al plans to operate Israel’s first direct flight to Abu Dhabi. The Arab League’s boycott of Israel was imposed following the foundation of the Jewish state in 1948.
The UN Security Council on Friday extended the mandate of the UN peacekeeping force in southern Lebanon, but also cut its maximum size from 15,000 to 13,000. The French-drafted measure called on the Lebanese government to facilitate “prompt and full access” to sites requested by UN peacekeepers for investigation, including tunnels crossing the UN-drawn Blue Line between Lebanon and Israel. Israel’s ambassador sent a letter to UNSC members demanding significant changes in UNIFIL’s mandate. “There is no justification for having an ineffective force operate in territory in which Hezbollah is using to arm itself and turn southern Lebanon into a terrorist base.”
Note: Hezbollah dispatched a squad of snipers to a location close to a UN post in southern Lebanon on the night of Aug. 25 before firing bullets at an IDF position in the area, fortunately failing to hit any soldiers.
When Palestinians cut off long-standing security, financial and civil ties with their Israeli counterparts in May, they pledged not to resume them until Israel gave up its plans to unilaterally annex Jewish settlements in the West Bank. But when annexation plans were halted as part of a diplomatic breakthrough between Israel and the United Arab Emirates earlier this month, Palestinian leaders did not celebrate. Instead, they condemned the Persian Gulf sheikhdom for normalizing relations with Israel. And weeks later, they still will not restart cooperation. (It must be realised that they will never make peace with the Jewish state! The PA has been using any excuse to avoid talks with Israel, as they have nothing to offer for peace!)
Erdogan handed out Turkish passports to a dozen senior Hamas terrorists. it will allow them to easily move around the world to conduct terrorist activities. Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan has hosted the Hamas leadership twice this year. The US State Department reacted angrily to the meeting, slamming Erdogan for hosting known terrorists. (Revoking Turkey’s NATO membership and moving Gaza population to Turkey would be a good response!)
Netanyahu has frozen new housing construction in Israeli towns in Judea and Samaria, withholding new housing permits for the expansion of Israeli towns for more than half a year. The Higher Planning Committee has not convened to issue new housing permits since February. (Bibi betrays the future of Israel for photo-ops and fake peace with Arabs!)
A Palestinian from Nablus stabbed the Haredi rabbi Shay Ohayon, 39 and father of four, on Wednesday in Petah Tikva, a town northeast of Tel Aviv. An eyewitness reported that the terrorist had stabbed the victim five or six times with a large knife. Palestinian Authority officials (immediately) said the killer had a background of mental illness. The 46-year-old terrorist holds an Israeli work permit and is not considered an illegal resident. Police also determined that a stabbing attack in Rosh Ha’ayin on August 15, was a terror attack. The Arab terrorist and 3 additional men who aided the terrorist were arrested by security forces. (The PA has made sure all of them are raised mentally ill!)
Likud and Blue & White agreed to pass a bill tabled by Derekh Eretz MK Zvi Hauser, which proposes postponing the passing of the budget by 120 days, avoiding the automatic dissolvent of the government. If the state budget or the compromise bill is not passed by midnight, snap elections are automatically triggered. With hours before the crucial vote, however, Likud officials went on the offensive, accusing Blue & White of deviating from its promise that no appointments for top position in the public sector would be made until December 23, when the 120-day budget delay expires.
Israel recently hinted that it might return to the policy of taking out Hamas leaders with “surgical strikes” if terror attacks on Israel continue. In recent weeks, Hamas terrorists fired at least a dozen rockets at Israeli towns and launched hundreds of incendiary balloons, which caused scores of fires – all with Hamas approval. All of Hamas’ senior political figures, as well as its terror bosses, are operating from hiding places and with extreme care to compartmentalize their movements, knowing that they could be targeted with precision by Israeli airstrikes.
Quote of the Week:
"Since we cannot defeat Israel in war, we do this in stages. We take any and every territory that we can of Palestine, and establish sovereignty there, and we use it as a springboard to take more. When the time comes, we can get the Arab nations to join us for the final blow against Israel." - Yasser Arafat, on the same day he signed the Declaration of Principles on the White House lawn in 1993.

...If Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who comes from the Right-wing camp, was interested, he could bring about a change in the centers of power in the State of Israel, but despite his having presided over the longest tenure in the history of the State of Israel, he has not done this, and this is one of the reasons that we have some penetrating questions about his leadership and his world-view."
Time and again, the Prime Minister of Israel talks Right-wing but acts Left-wing. A short time before each of the recent elections Netanyahu was careful to market himself as someone who would bring sovereignty to Judea and Samaria. Time and again we went to the ballot boxes, time and again he was elected to the leadership and nothing happened. Now, the agreement with the Emirates is the ladder he uses to come down from the sovereignty tree that he had climbed on. Again, Netanyahu buries sovereignty, and this time unceremoniously and ignominiously, not before carefully spreading more promises that sovereignty has not been taken off the agenda, it is only delayed…
As someone with historic vision, the Prime Minister is well aware that sovereignty is the natural course of Zionism. Sovereignty is the realization of our right to this Land, according to the Bible, history, geography, international law and especially from the point of view of justice. Netanyahu knows all of this, but he prefers the agreement with the United Emirates, who were never even at war with us.
As a successful marketing person, he also sells us the agreement as “peace for peace”, despite his agreement being a critical blow to the future of the People of Israel in this Land and the Zionist vision that led us to her. In order to promote his dangerous political steps...
And we ask: why does Israel need to capitulate? Knowing that the Sunni states desperately need a connection with Israel and the U.S., Israel can and should demand that the relations be based on our rights to our Land! Why Israel is again expected to make concessions? Why can’t there be an agreement with the UAE and sovereignty as well?
The process of sovereignty must be advanced without any regard or connection to a Palestinian state... True Israeli interest is that there be measured and considered steps of sovereignty while making it clear to the people and the world that these are only the first steps in a series to be continued. This is the Right’s political plan; this is the democratic choice of the majority of the people in Israel...
A declaration of sovereignty can be such a dramatic step, a step that will result in the entire world hearing and discovering the historic truth and justice that Israel carries. Such a step would also make clear to the Arabs of Judea and Samaria who the real owners of the Land are, it would erase their desire to establish a state on our ruins, and ultimately, bring stability, security and calm. And this will be true normalization!
