Hamas get military weapons ideas from Iran and North Korea


It is well known that Iran supplies Hamas with weapons, but it appears that they are also sharing weapons technology and designs with the North Koreans.

Hamas claimed recently it has created its own tank, repurposing parts of another tank captured from Israel Defense Forces two years ago

The vehicle was put on public display during a parade last week at the funeral of seven Hamas members, killed during a tunnel collapse near the Israeli border.

A Hamas leader told the assembled crowd: “The Tufah neighbourhood (in Gaza) has a long story with enemy tanks, and therefore, we are preparing ourselves for the day we shall meet those tanks … Let the locally-produced vehicle move forward.”    Read more »

Two-Thirds of Palestinians Support Knife Attacks and Intifada

No surprises here from adherent of the “religion of peace”.

A poll released on Monday found that two-thirds of Palestinians support the ongoing wave of stabbings against Israelis, while nearly the same percentage give a thumbs-up to the idea of an armed uprising, or intifada, against Israel.

France24 reports that a survey of 1,270 people in 127 randomly selected locations by the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research (PSR) reveals that 67 percent support the use of knives, while 66 percent of those asked said an armed intifada or uprising would “serve Palestinian national interests in ways that negotiations could not.”

On the up side, nearly three-quarters said they opposed the involvement of “young schoolgirls” in stabbings. How chivalrous of them.   Read more »

UN staff hail Palestinian terror attacks on social media

UNRWA has always been part of the problem, never the solution.

Now their staff have been busted hailing terrorist attacks on social media.

Palestinian employees of a UN refugee agency are inciting Palestinians to commit terror attacks against Israelis from social media accounts on which they explicitly identify as United Nations workers, a report from a UN watchdog published Friday charged.

UN Watch chief Hillel Neuer said his organization’s report was submitted to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon, to UNRWA chief Pierre Krähenbühl and to US Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power. The US, according to the United Nations monitoring group, is the largest funder of UNRWA with $400 million annually.

In the report, Neuer cites nine UNRWA employees and presents screenshots of what the group says are inciteful posts from their Facebook pages that call for the murder of Jews, or promote conspiracy theories claiming terrorists killed by Israeli security forces were innocent.

Among the purported employees cited in the report is Hani al Ramahi, who identifies as a project support assistant at UNRWA. He posted a violent image on his Facebook on October 8 in which a keffiyeh-clad man stares down the camera, holding a knife with a blade bearing the colors of the Palestinian flag and dripping with blood. “Stab Zionist dogs,“ reads the caption.

Face of the day

Today’s face of the day is Chloe Valdary who is a consultant for the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America and a fellow at the Lawfare Project. I came across a hard hitting article she wrote about the student organisation SLP ( Students for Justice in Palestine ) and I just had to share it with you all.

The student organization Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) is prominent on many college campuses, preaching a mantra of “Freeing Palestine.” It masquerades as though it were a civil rights group when it is not. Indeed, as an African-American, I am highly insulted that my people’s legacy is being pilfered for such a repugnant agenda. It is thus high time to expose its agenda and lay bare some of the fallacies they peddle.

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.

Raising kids on hate the Hamas way

Truth Revolt reports on how Hamas uses children to foment hatred, and indoctrinate children.

You think American television is bad? In a recent (September 4) interview that aired on Palestinian terror group Hamas’s Al-Aqsa television featuring the ambitions of some young children, two Palestinian boys, both dressed in military fatigues, eagerly shared their desire to kill Jews, reports Breitbart.

The Palestinian host of the show began by asking a young boy named Muhammad to recite a poem his mother had taught him:

“Oh Jerusalem, I shall redeem you with my soul and my blood. I shall liberate you from the Jews by means of the Al-Qassam Brigades (the militant wing of Hamas), of course. I bring glad tidings to our prisoners: salvation is near.”   Read more »

What will Winston and Andy say about this media bias?

Winston Peters, the real opposition leader and Andrew Little, playing follow the leader both attacked Mike Hosking for political bias.

I wonder what they will say about the latest finding of the Broadcasting Standards Authority that shows clear bias by Red Radio.

BSA upholds complaint about unbalanced coverage of Gaza conflict

The BSA has upheld four complaints that a segment on Radio New Zealand National’s Sunday Morning programme discussing the July/August 2014 Gaza conflict was unbalanced.

The segment contained two items. One discussed the relationship between Israel and South Africa and Israel’s arms industry. The other was an interview with an anti-apartheid activist, who discussed these things as well as modern-day Israel’s treatment of Palestinians.

The activist interviewed by Radio New Zealand described Israel’s actions in Gaza as ‘genocidal’ and said that Zionism and apartheid were the ‘spiritual twins of Nazism’. The Authority acknowledged that as this was a live interview the programme host was likely ‘caught off-guard by the path the interview took’.   Read more »

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.

Labor senator castigates his own party over Palestinian claims

Rationality on the vexed question of Palestinian”rights” can not usually be found from the left.

In Australia an ALP senator, Joe Bullock, has some pretty wise words for the ALP and for anyone involved in progressing any form of settlement in the region. Murray McCully would do well to acquaint himself with some of these views.

As I said in [my maiden] speech, a lifetime of representing working people is not easily set aside, nor should it be.

Naturally I assumed the Labor Party, my party, would share this focus. I did not imagine that at its first national conference since the election of the present Liberal government a few obsessives within the ALP would choose to concentrate instead on the Middle East peace process.

Much less did I imagine that these cranks would seek to undermine the bipartisan commitment to a two-state solution with a reckless, poorly thought-out and frankly foolish motion urging the immediate recognition of a state of Palestine.

Yet here we are.

It is quite absurd for everyone to be running around deciding to recognise a “state” that doesn’t exist in reality, is split ideologically and whose leaders refuse to renounce terrorism.

It would appear to be stating the obvious to say that all sides in this discussion want to see a resolution of the conflict on the basis of “two states for two peoples”. And so, in this context, it is quite accurate to say that everyone, certainly within the ALP, supports a Palestinian state. However, sensible people recognise the vast gulf between wanting to see a Palestinian state established within a framework of secure borders, the renunciation of violence and terrorism, and a final peace settlement on the one hand and, on the other, demanding a Palestinian state be established at once without regard for these issues.

The advocates of immediate recognition have never answered five key questions about their position.    Read more »

Maori Television reporter deported from Israel

One of the two reporters from Maori Television on board the terror-supporting protest flotilla has been deported from Israel.

Maori Television reporter Ruwani Perera has been deported from Israel after she and cameraman Jacob Bryant were filming a story onboard a flotilla of ships detained by the Israeli military.

Perera contacted relatives on Tuesday morning (New Zealand time) via satellite phone to say she was being deported, her partner Tim Werry said.

Werry said she was safe and that she would be flying back into Auckland on July 1.

It was only a brief message, he said, and he did not hear what had happened to Perera’s colleague Bryant.

“It’s all happening so quickly,” he said.

Werry said he was initially relieved to hear the news that she had been released by the Israeli military.   Read more »
