A school holiday programme in terror

Apologists for the terror regime governing Gaza always point out the ‘good’ things Hamas do…like providing schooling and holiday programmes for the under-privileged.

Some Remuera moaner complained about my mate running Mini-Titans at a school because they had army style boot camp. I bet if she lived in Gaza she wouldn’t complain about this holiday programme, because to do so would likely get her dragged behind a motorbike by a baying mob.

The Hamas government in Gaza celebrated the graduation on Tuesday of some 13,000 high school students who spent the last six days learning how to be terrorists.

The Hamas-run training camps, for teens in grades 10-12, provide weapons training, first aid, self-defense and “security awareness” classes on identifying Israeli spies, The Times of Israel reported.

About 13,000 teens enrolled over the past week at nearly a dozen sites across the Gaza Strip for the six-day program, called Futuwwa, with trainers from Hamas‘ military wing, the Izzedine al-Qassam Brigades.

The number of graduates increased significantly from the 5,000 last year when the program was launched by the ministries of education and interior.

Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh gave a speech at the graduation celebration Tuesday, blasting Israel and taking note of the female trainers on staff that “oversee the training of the young women to follow in the footsteps of the female suicide operatives,” he said.  Read more »

Knock on the Roof

Those Israelis are smart. Their new “knock on the roof” method of warning of strikes is cool:

The Israeli military let it be known that it was using this tactic – known as ‘knock on the roof’ – again during Operation Pillar of Defence. It involves firing low-explosive ‘teaser’ bombs or missiles onto houses designated for destruction, with the intention of making an impact serious enough to scare the inhabitants into fleeing their homes before they are destroyed completely.

Israel makes much of the fact that it always tries to warn civilian inhabitants of impending bombings. The new procedure is a twist on the established ‘knock on the door’ method, which involved telephoning a house – with a recorded message, or using an Arabic-speaking air-force operator – to inform the inhabitants that in a few minutes the building would be destroyed. Sometimes phones that had been disconnected for months because the bill hadn’t been paid were suddenly reactivated in order to relay these warnings. According to the Israeli military, during the last 24 hours of Pillar of Defence, thousands of such calls were made to residents of Gaza, warning them of incoming strikes. (Israel can penetrate Gaza’s communication networks so easily because its telephone networks and internet infrastructure are routed through Israeli servers, which has advantages both for the gathering of intelligence and the delivery of propaganda.)

Of course, many inhabitants of Gaza don’t have a landline or a mobile phone. In these cases, an IDF spokesperson recently explained, the military’s legal experts recommend the use of leaflets to encourage people to leave their houses before they are destroyed. Teaser bombs are just another means of sending a warning.

Babes And Beasts Of The IDF

It’s nothing new that the wall around Gaza contains some naughty rocket hugging Fakestinians. And there’s no better way to tell off the rock chuckers than with some stern words from the babes of the IDF via a loudspeaker from a Guardium UGV, or Unmanned Ground Vehicle. These beasts really are a step up in technology in patrolling borders and boundaries of disputed territories.

“Back in the control room, soldiers — all of whom are women — operate the Guardium with joysticks, gear pedals, a steering wheel and monitors that broadcast a live feed from the field.

Soldiers who want to join the Guardium unit must have a drivers license for automatic and manual transmissions. “Applicants must be able to focus intensively since the job demands being glued to a screen without interruption for six hour shifts.”

All that’s needed now is to arm it with a pair of .50 cal automatic weapons.

Hamas are evil

Martyn Bradbury hates Israel and supports the Hamas “government” in Gaza.

The people he supports do this to people. You will never see Israeli soldiers doing this, they follow strict rules. Hamas are nothing but scum terrorists.

Witnesses say masked gunmen have publicly killed six suspected collaborators with Israel at a busy Gaza City intersection.

The Hamas military wing claimed responsibility.

Witnesses said the six men were pulled out of a van Tuesday, forced to lie face down on the street and then shot dead.

Five bodies lay in a pile as a mob stomped and spit on them. A sixth body was tied to a motorcycle and dragged through the streets as people screamed, “Spy! Spy!”

Hamas posted a sign on an electricity pole, naming the six alleged informers.

Israel relies on a network of local informants to identify its targets.

The killings came during a nearly week-long Israeli military offensive that has killed more than 120 people, both militants and civilians, including three Israelis.

Hamas terror boss disguises himself as media

Hamas love hiding behind the skirts of women and children, now they are pretending to be media to avoid having their sinuses cleared with a Hellfire:

The “human shield” method, as it is commonly known, has forced the IDF to target seemingly non-military targets, resulting in some of the civilian casualties. It has also endangered all residents of the Gaza Strip who, without their consent, were unwittingly dragged into the conflict.

Senior Hamas Operative Disguised as Journalist

One such example came in today, when a senior Hamas operative was targeted while driving a press vehicle. Muhammed Shamalah, commander of Hamas forces in the southern Strip and head of the Hamas militant training programs, was targeted by an Israeli air strike while driving a car clearly labelled “TV”, indicating it to be a press vehicle, abusing the protection afforded to journalists.

The incident occurred on the same day that four senior Palestinian Islamic Jihad operatives took over a floor of the foreign press building in Gaza and used it as a meeting place, risking the lives of all journalists inside. The IDF targeted the operatives and a direct hit was confirmed. Journalists have been warned to stay aware from terrorists or terror sites in the Strip, for their own safety.

I’ll just bet that this is what this Kiwi repeater is going on about:

Before any media go leaping into print going nuts about this “journalist, she has form lying on behalf of Palestinians. David Farrar also notes that she has form:

She is a long-standing political activist for the communist regime in Cuba, the revolutionary leftist Zapatistas, and the Kia Ora Gaza and NZ Palestine Human Rights Campaign. She disputes that Israel even has a right to exist as a legitimate state, and people can judge this statement for themselves:

Unlike Farrar, I won’t pull any punches. I agree with him that these terrorist enabling statements should be published but her form needs to be reported too. Enablers of the terrorist regime in Gaza really have no shame, prepared to lie and cheat and hide behind woman, children and now journalists.

Bottom line is this. If you want to associate with terrorists then don’t go complaining when a missile comes calling.

Busting Hamas lies

Hamas has made a number of extraordinary claims in recent days. Let’s go through some of them.

Pallywood makes a return

Seriously injured Fakestinians caught on camera miraculously healing themselves:

Barely one day into the fighting in Hamas-run Gaza, the locals are hard at work playing the victim for the world’s press.

Footage from the BBC captured by watchdog group Honest Reporting shows a heavy man lying on the ground and being carried away by residents, apparently after being injured by an Israeli attack.

Moments later, that same man again fills the frame, except he is walking about and obviously unhurt.

The widespread staging of such victim situations is a favored tactic of Arabs fighting Israel and has come to be known as “Pallywood.” Because Israel is stronger militarily, the Arabs cling to the underdog image of poor refugees under occupation and siege by evil Israelis, thus eliciting sympathy.

IDF takes out Hamas terror boss

After months and months of escalating a rocket attacks on Israel by Hamas the Israelis have finally had enough.

…more than 700 have struck Israel since the beginning of the year, and more than 120 since Saturday – the IDF has launched a widespread campaign against terror targets in Gaza. The operation, called Pillar of Defense, has two main goals: to protect Israeli civilians and to cripple the terrorist infrastructure in Gaza.

Hamas has taken to televising and advertising their rocket attacks on Israel..little wonder then that the IDF took out Ahmad Jabari, the operational commander of Hamas’s armed wing, the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades.
