Israel Under Fire, Again


Child on PA TV:

Jews “murdered children, raped women in city squares, defiled the Quran”

Projection: all the evil Muslims do they blame on the Jews. Here’s the transcript: From PMW via the Elder:

Think Erdogan was serious?

The Turkish Prime Minister said that as long as Israel did not fully comply with his conditions, that is, compensation for the families of the Marmara victims, as well as the lifting of the blockade on Gaza, the relations between Israel and Turkey would not be fully restored.–Read more

Jihad flotilla Mavi Marmara victim to donate Israeli tribute money to Hamas and Islamic Jihad

This demonstrates how disastrously foolish it was for Israel to have succumbed to Obama’s pressure and apologized for defending itself. Now some of the money that Israel will pay to the “victims” will go to the jihad against Israel.

 Gaza: Jihadists break ceasefire agreement, fire rockets into Israel

The jihadists are claiming that Israel broke the agreement — by fighting back after they fired rockets into Israel earlier. The Zionists have no right to defend themselves, you see.

“2 rockets fired from Gaza explode in southern Israel,” from the Times of Israel, April 3:

Apology for the 1942 Struma Slaughter  (Andrew Bostom)

If Israel is apologizing for the ‘Mavi Marmara’ raid, why shouldn’t Turkey apologize for something far worse?  (TROP)

Biggest news of the day: Tamar field starts pumping gas

From YNet via the Elder:

The moment everyone has been waiting for has arrived: After more than four years of drilling and pipe laying, the flow of natural gas from the Tamar gas field, located some 90 km (roughly 56 miles) west of Haifa, has begun.

The gas is travelling in pipes hundreds of kilometers south into the Yam Tatis gas field and from there will continue to an intake center in Ashdod, where it is expected to arrive in about 30 hours.

Jihadis’ Exploitation of Muslim Girls by Khaled Abu Toameh

What is disturbing is that many Arab and Islamic human rights organizations have remained silent about the crimes committed against Muslim women throughout the Arab and Muslim world. By contrast, these organizations are often quick to denounce Westerners for “insulting” Islam by publishing photos depicting the Prophet Mohamed.
If anyone is really insulting Islam, it those the Muslim fundamentalists and jihadis who show no respect for Muslim girls and treat them as sex slaves.

The Jewish “Occupation” of Judea?

One has to wonder why the international community decided to use the term West Bank even after the area was liberated. And the fact that all Jews were forced out of Judea and Samaria during Jordan’s illegal occupation is something you rarely hear in the media or anywhere else. I guess people want to maintain the false image of Jews in Judea and Samaria as “foreign occupiers”?

BBC turns political activists into “aid workers”

The misappropriation of terms such as “humanitarian organization”, “human rights” or “aid worker” is an unfortunately common practice in the circles of anti-Israel campaigners seeking to co-opt the publicly acceptable image afforded by such terms to their political campaigns. It is regrettable that the BBC compromises its own reputation and breaches editorial guidelines on accuracy and impartiality by engaging in the same practice.

The assault of female members of the convoy in Libya is horrific enough as it is: there is no need for the BBC to embellish the story by erroneously depicting the women and the group with which they were travelling as “aid workers”.
