Hamas are restricting the Press despite the MSM’s Pro-Palestine bias

Hamas really are an ungrateful lot. Foreign journalists could not be more cooperative.  Already predisposed to seeing Palestine as the victim and Israel as the aggressor the articles on the conflict seem to be always biased in Hamas’s favour. When Hamas store weapons and fire rockets at Israel from inside hospitals, schools, and mosques the press dutifully report that the terrible Israelis attacked hospitals, schools, and mosques which  are not legitimate military targets.  When Hamas damages with rockets an Israeli power station  that supplies power to both Israel and Palestine, the media dutifully report that the terrible Israelis have cut off power to Palestine.

Despite this Palestine friendly coverage, Hamas is restricting the work of foreign journalists in the Gaza Strip.

Terrorists allegedly build base with millions of dollars of World Vision cash

We have been contacted by World Vision.

You can read their Press release on the topic here.

Due to the seriousness of the allegations World Vision says that they have already suspended operations in Gaza.


As you already know millions of NZ dollars donated to World Vision were allegedly stolen and  funneled directly to the terrorist wing of Hamas. New Zealand was not the only country to have its donations allegedly sent to Hamas. Germany, Britain and Australia  were allegedly ripped off as well.

Back in 2012  World Vision was warned that money was being sent to Hamas.

World Vision said it was standing by its employee Mohammed El-Halabi and was “shocked” at the charges against him.

Hamas didn’t blow all of it on loose goats, camel urine, and tea towels. They also allegedly managed to put enough of the stolen millions of World Vision charity aside to build this terrorist base complete with terror tunnels,  a surveillance tower, and an urban training facility.

Donations from the United Kingdom made to the Christian aid organization World Vision were used by Hamas to build one of such 70 military bases that operate in Gaza. The allegations are part of the June 15, 2016 arrest of Mohammed El-Halabi, a senior World Vision worker facing charges of funneling $43 million in charity funds to Hamas.

The only solution is to kill them before they kill us

ISIS are celebrating Palestinian stabbings of Jews in Israel on social media using children.

Truth Revolt reports:

Social media is one of the tools ISIS uses to push its propaganda to the widest available audience. The Islamic terrorist group is not one to shy away from utilizing extreme shock value to proselytize its message of “death to the infidels.” And that is never more apparent than in its latest spreading of images of very young children brandishing knives and adorned in Palestinian garb — an obvious ode to recent stabbing attacks against Jews in the West Bank.   Read more »

Our double standard terror policies

neville-mcully

Shalom Kiwi reports on our double standards when it comes to terrorist attacks.

British Prime Minister David Cameron made a strong, principled speech against extremism in July. In it, he said that if one says “‘violence in London isn’t justified, but suicide bombs in Israel are a different matter’ – then you too are part of the problem.”

New Zealand’s Foreign Minister, Murray McCully, was quick to condemn the recent terrorist attack in Ankara, Turkey, calling it an abhorrent attack on innocent people and declaring that “we stand with the people and government of Turkey in their fight against terrorism in all its forms.”

Given our solidarity with Turkey, why is it that New Zealand has, so far, failed to similarly condemn any of the dozens of recent terror attacks in Israel over the past month, including the killing of parents in front of their children, the stabbing of elderly, firebombing of children, and a shooting at a bus station.   Read more »

As terror attacks increase in Israel, who is to blame?

We don’t need to look far for who is to blame for the increasing terror attacks in Israel, usually by stabbing.

MEMRI has released this video of Palestinian Cleric Muhammed Salah aka “Abu Rajab” exhorting his adherents to go out and stab Jews.

It is particularly sickening…but this is what Hamas and the Palestinian Authority endorse.

Victoria University academics against freedom of speech

Normally student bodies and academics are protesting against impinging of academic freedoms.

In the topsy turvy world of New Zealand universities though they mean only freedoms they agree with, but when it involves Israelis then there must be boycotts, demands for cancellation of events and bullying via the media.

So much for academic freedoms.

Israeli soldiers involved in an operation that left thousands of Palestinians dead will speak at Victoria University, to the horror of some staff and students.

But the group of Jewish students bringing the former soldiers out say attempts to stop them coming to the university are an affront to free speech.

Students are planning to picket the Tuesday evening event at the university while 11 academics have signed a letter opposing it, arguing Palestinians would not be able to do the same.

Where’s the fricken laser beams?

Oh the humanity…apparently the evil Juice have trained dolphins to fire arrows at Hamas.

Hamas’s naval unit has captured a dolphin spying for Israel, according to a report published today in the Palestinian Al Quds newspaper, Wednesday, August 19. The report stated that naval commando divers of the Hamas’s Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades military brigade captured a dolphin carrying surveillance equipment several weeks ago.

The dolphin was behaving suspiciously according to the Hamas naval unit and was brought to the Gaza shore to be examined.

The Al Quds report further stated that Hamas military experts are now testing the device that was attached to the dolphin and have discovered that it can fire arrows. This proves, according to the terror organization, that Israel wants to hurt the Hamas naval unit and spy on its naval operations.

Hamas released a warning to its members to be cautious of further encounters with dolphins.

Rachel Smalley is a dreadful lightweight – today’s example

She features for one hour, between 5 and 6 am on weekdays, yet she punches below her weight all the time:  Rachel “Kevlar” Smalley thinks of herself as one of the few remaining “serious journalists”.

We can forgive her “off-air” derision about people who weigh more than her, and we can even forgive a little slip up by thinking scientist Kepler and fabric Kevlar are the same.

But what I can’t forgive is lazy journalism.  I don’t accept it here, I didn’t accept it at Truth, and I won’t accept it in future.

Smalley’s decided to warm up the Refugee Quota again for today’s column.

The calls are growing to increase our refugee quota.

A parliamentary Select Committee says we need to increase the quota – and soon. There is some urgency on this given the scale of need around the world right now.

Our quota sits at 750 at the moment, and it hasn’t changed since 1987. We seldom fill that quota.

I happened to have been looking into this area in some detail for a story I have been working on, and that didn’t ring true to me.  All the stats are available on-line and easily accessible.   Read more »

Continue or Abort? You Decide

From the IDF Blog:

Last year, the IDF set out on a mission to stop Hamas aggression against Israeli civilians. One of our major challenges was that Hamas’ chose to embed its vast terror network deep within Gaza’s population. The terror organization hid weapons in schools and mosques, fired rockets from hospitals and dug terror tunnels under homes.

When a weapons storage facility or launching pad must be targeted, but suddenly civilians appear in the area, you are faced with a serious dilemma. If you fire at the target, you may harm civilians nearby. If you don’t, you may be leaving Israeli civilians at risk.

Kill ’em all and let God sort ’em out

Politico has an article about the perceived strategy that Israel and the US are letting their enemies kill each other before moving to do anything.

As some see it, what’s happening now in the Mideast provides the best excuse the Israelis have had in a long time to just sit back and let their worst enemies rub each other out. Senior Israeli officials now view Hamas, the terror group that lobbed thousands of rockets at Israel last summer, as a potential bulwark against supporters of the Islamic State (Daesh in Arabic) in the Gaza Strip. This was the gist of a June 19 opinion piece by Efraim Halevi, former director of Israel’s Mossad intelligence agency, in the popular daily Yediot Ahronot.  Reports suggest that Israel is now even mulling a truce with Hamas, with one intended consequence being that the group would devote its energies to defeating Daesh.

True, it is likely that both of Israel’s foes could be badly bloodied. And that’s probably a positive. This was the Western calculus during the Iran-Iraq war (1980-88). As Henry Kissinger reportedly quipped, “It’s a pity they both can’t lose.” But when the guns fell silent, neither country was defeated. And both emerged committed and able to destabilize the Middle East and threaten American interests.

The strategy was risky then and it’s risky now. Even so, it’s making a comeback. A growing gaggle of Western governments now appear to be altering their threat assessments of violent groups in an apparent effort to enlist them in the fight against the Islamic State.      Read more »
