Rocket Attacks are a Declaration of War

1. During the Passover holiday, amid a barrage of rocket attacks launched across the northern border with Lebanon. A single rocket launched from Lebanese territory was successfully shot down by the Iron Dome air defense system. Minutes later, sirens sounded in dozens of northern Israeli towns and villages amid a barrage of rockets from Israel's northern border. Saudi-based Al-Hadath reported that more than 30 rockets were launched toward Israel from Lebanon. According to initial security assessments, Hamas terror cells based in southern Lebanon were responsible for the rocket barrage.

However, it was unlikely they would do so without at least the tacit approval of the Iran-backed terror group - Hezbollah.

2. Terrorists in the Gaza Strip fired seven surface-to-air rockets that exploded in the air overnight Thursday, during the Passover holiday. Five of the rockets were launched toward Israeli airspace and two toward the ocean. The missiles were likely targeting Israeli Air Force craft in the area. Nine rockets were fired tonight (between Tuesday and Wednesday) from the Gaza Strip into Israel. One rocket hit a factory in a nearby industrial area, causing minor damage.

3. Iran is behind almost all the threats against Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said: “Iran is responsible for 95% of the security threats against us". Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei tweeted recently: “We said a few years ago (2015) that the Zionist regime would not see 25 years from then."

4. The Shin Bet has thwarted more than 200 “significant” terrorist attacks since the beginning of the year. “To illustrate the numbers: only 3 months have passed and this year over 200 significant attacks have been thwarted, including about 150 shooting attacks, 20 bomb attacks, car rammings, suicide bombings, kidnappings, and more. Unfortunately, we’ve also suffered 15 painful losses. We are in a challenging time, both at home and abroad. The source is Iranian, Shi’ite, Hamasi, Jihadi, Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), Salafi terrorists, and various local phenomena,” said Shin Bet Director Ronen Bar. (Enemies of Israel are conducting war against the Jewish state with words, terrorist and rocket attacks. Israel must realise it is time to neutralise the Iranian nuclear program, and decisively remove all enemies from Jewish land – reunite Eretz-Israel.)

Iran Forcing Jews Call for Destruction of Israel

The Iranian regime has instructed the country’s Jewish community to refrain from celebrating the day after Passover and instead participate in the annual anti-Israel Quds Day demonstration that calls for the destruction of Israel. The social media Telegram channel for Iran’s Jewish community had a post to its estimated 9,000 members: “Invitation to participate in the Quds Day demonstration. According to our holy bible, every Jew has to stand against oppression against human beings. When we are approaching Quds Day, the Jewish community of Iran will participate in demonstrations against the Zionist regime and will declare their disgust with the Zionist policies against human beings. The Iranian Jewish community is separated from the Zionists. We are with Iranians and Muslims.” (Complete lack of tolerance for the Jewish state - It is time to remove unholy regime in Teheran!)

Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak

Museum of Tolerance braces for ‘soft opening’ in Jerusalem. Unfortunately, this is not a joke. Does any Arab/Muslim country have, or plan to have such a museum? Sometimes, Israel/Jews must let our excessive tolerance toward our enemies go. When will “Enough” be really mean enough?

Hezbollah and Hamas United against Israel

Hassan Nasrallah, leader of the Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah met with Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh and his deputy, Saleh al-Arouri. The coordination of further "resistance" efforts was discussed, with a promise of cooperation.

Will the UN Condemn Hamas?

Following the rockets attack from Lebanon and Gaza, and the incitement in Jerusalem, Eli Cohen, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, appealed to the UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres with a request to issue a strong condemnation by the Security Council of Lebanon and Hamas. The Lebanese government is responsible for the shooting from its territory, which is a violation of UN Security Council Resolution 1701. (It is unlikely that the 'Useless Nothing' will condemn enemies of the Jewish state. Israel is usually the target of condemnations by the ‘UGLY NAZI’.)

Enemies of Israel are United

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told his Iranian counterpart Ebrahim Raisi in a phone call on Friday that “the Islamic world should be united against Israel’s attacks in Palestine.” Turkey also has warned there could be an impact on ties with Israel after the Al-Aqsa clashes. “Turkey cannot stay silent in the face of these attacks. Trampling on the Al-Aqsa Mosque is our red line.” The comments after clashes at Al-Aqsa Mosque present a challenge to Israel’s recently restored diplomatic relations with Ankara. (The current Islamist government of Turkey is not a friend of Israel. Why is Turkey still member of the NATO?)

Finland is Buying David Sling

Finland decided to buy Israel’s David Sling weapon system, which will include interceptors, launchers, and radar, connected to Finnish command and control systems. This is the first time Israel’s Ministry of Defense is expected to export the David’s Sling System abroad.

Free Trade Agreement with the EAU

United Arab Emirates (UAE) President Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed wished the people of Israel a happy Passover. Netanyahu in turn wished bin Zayed and the people of the UAE a happy Ramadan. The UAE is committed to a long-term economic relationship with Israel despite recent tensions between the two countries. A free-trade agreement between the countries entered into effect, removing or reducing tariffs on more than 96% of products.

Deeply Ingrained Leftists Antisemitic Hypocrisy

Ninety-five faculty members of faculty at Columbia University are protesting the school's proposed Global Center in Tel Aviv over human rights concerns in Israel despite remaining silent on human rights abuses in China, home to the university’s Beijing Center. The university also maintains centers in Jordan and Turkey - countries with human rights controversies.

About Temple Mount Riot

Muslim worshippers in the Al Aqsa Mosque are asserting that the Islamic extremists who barricaded themselves inside the Mosque locked them in and prevented other Muslims from going to the Mosque to pray. After the authorities’ attempts at dialogue failed, and the extremists were refusing to allow Muslim worshippers to enter the Mosque, the security forces were compelled to act in order to restore order. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded on Wednesday to the overnight incidents on the Temple Mount: "Israel is acting to maintain the status quo and calm the situation on the Temple Mount." (It is time to establish a new, Zionist 'status quo'.)

Israel Can Deal with Iran on its Own

Chief of Staff Herzi Halevi pointed out that Israel can - and is ready for - a pre-emptive strike on Iran even without US assistance. Regarding the Biden administration's recent criticism of Israel, he said that, "Israel is capable of handling any security challenge, but it is good to have the United States at our side. We know how to act alone. We are a sovereign nation that reserves the right to make decisions on its own. It would be good to have the US by our side - but not a must."

Self-Hating Israeli Left Helping PA Terrorists

Left-wing Israeli group provides legal aid to PA terrorists. Palestinian Authority officials referring families of terrorists who murdered Jews to HaMoked, an Israeli organization, for legal assistance. Thousands of 'Palestinian' Arabs turn to HaMoked and receive free legal assistance and representation from the organization. The vast majority of applications come from terrorists, terrorist suspects and their families. HaMoked doesn’t differentiate between the terrorists to whom it gives free legal counsel even if the applicant is a mass murderer of Israeli children.

Now Jordan and Pakistan Suddenly Care about Fake Palestinians

In the 1970’s the Jordanian army assisted by the Pakistani army under the command of Brigadier Zia al-Haq slaughtered upwards of 25,000 Palestinians. Tens of thousands more Palestinians were kicked out to Tunisia and Lebanon where they are treated as third class citizens.

- Terrorist shooting attack in northern Jordan Valley, killed two British-Israeli sisters in their 20s, and seriously wounded their mother, who has died from her wounds later. (UK Foreign Office spokesperson said in a statement: “We are saddened to hear about the deaths of two British-Israeli citizens. The UK calls for all parties across the region to de-escalate tensions”  No condemnation of terrorist attacks against Israel by Palestinians. “All parties” – equating Israel’s response to terror attacks!)

The driver of the car was identified as a 45-year-old Palestinian citizen of Israel from the village of Kafr Qassem. (There is no difference between Palestinians and Arab-Israeli terrorists. What will be the Italian government’s response to this terrorist attack? So far, Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni wrote: “My condolences to the victim’s family, to the injured, and solidarity with the State of Israel for the vile attack it suffered.” No condemnation!)
