Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh says Israel had violated the terms of an Egypt-sponsored truce it signed with Gaza factions in 2012 a long time ago.Â “We are ready for months of fighting against Israel,” Mahmoud al-Zahar, a member of the political office of the movement, said.
Hamas leader Kaled Meshaal:
‘We won two wars before, because God is with us. Even if we have to do it alone, we will defend our land. We are not making threats, but self-defence is our right’ said Meshaal.
Erdogan blames Israel, not Hamas-Fatah
France’s Hollande not concerned about Hamas rockets, blames Jews:
“The New York Times’ anti-Israel bias is on prominent display …
…in its international edition with a highly skewed page-one headline,” the watchdog group said. “Completely inverting reality … [u]ninformed, casual readers would have no clue from this grossly skewed headline that the opposite is true. It is Israel which is striking back following 386 Palestinian rocket attacks [by Wednesday] launched from the Gaza Strip and targeting civilian communities in southern Israel since June 12, when the three Israeli teens were abducted and killed.”
Money no object:
Worst Obama Idea Ever:
Hussein ObamaÂ offeredÂ Thursday to broker a cease-fire between Israel and the Palestinians–actually, the Hamas terror organization. That is one of the worst ideas, among many contenders, ever proffered by the Obama administration. The effect of the cease-fire would be to stop Israel from defending its citizens from Hamas, and to preserve the terrorist group’s arsenal and infrastructure for future use in another round of war.
