In a blunt warning to a visiting group of European diplomats over a looming jihadi threat, a former deputy Shin Bet chief on Monday said “if you do not stand by our side, the day when Islamic terror will reach your homes, your beds and your kindergartens will come soon.”
Speaking with Danish, Swedish and Dutch ambassadors to Israel, as well as officials from the embassies of Britain, Belgium, Italy, Hungary, Austria and Germany, Knesset Member Israel Hasson (Kadima), pointed out that “NATO bombed 5,000 civilians in Kosovo just because it was insulted; 27,000 Iraqi civilians were bombed during the American invasion because they posed a danger to the US; there is not a country in the world that can talk to us about morality.”

The idea that one of Hamas’s main command bunkers is located beneath Shifa Hospital in Gaza City is one of the worst-kept secrets of the Gaza war. So why aren’t reporters in Gaza ferreting it out? The precise location of a large underground bunker equipped with sophisticated communications equipment and housing some part of the leadership of a major terrorist organization beneath a major hospital would seem to qualify as a world-class scoop—the kind that might merit a Pulitzer, or at least a Polk.
So why isn’t the fact that Hamas uses Shifa Hospital as a command post making headlines? In part, it’s because the location is so un-secret that Hamas regularly meets with reporters there. (More From The Tablet)

Madonna wears traditional Muslim niqab veil because it’s been ‘that kind of day’
Madonna’s having a bad day, so decides to wear a niqab. Naturally.
While most people would maybe don a pair of tracksuit bottoms or a baggy T-shirt, the singer chose to wear a traditional Islamic headscarf to get her through what she describes as “that kind of day”.
She shared the picture on Instagram, along with the perhaps ill-advised words: “#unapologeticbitch” – as if to pre-empt any possible backlash, which would of course be likely. Not that she cares; she’s “unapologetic”.
Its already pretty bad and its getting worse and worse.
“Empty tables at Ramadan dinneras Vic Alhadeff stands by Gaza comments” reads the headline in the Sydney Moonbat Herald. Nobody questions why the bankrupt state of NSW should pay for a Mohammedan feast; the furore is about the remarks of a kumbaya Jew who “refused to withdraw his controversial comments defending Israel’s deadly force against Gaza that have badly fractured goodwill between Sydney’s Jewish and Muslim groups.”
“He has spent a long part of his life working on harmony,” NSW PM Mike Baird said as he left the Lakemba Mosque on Monday following prayers to mark the end of Ramadan, wiping the brown lipstick off his mouth……
‘[NSW] Minister for Citizenship and Communities Victor Dominello has backed NSW Jewish Board of Deputies CEO Vic Alhadeff to remain as chair of the NSW Community Relations Commission (CRC) amid calls for his resignation by leaders of the local Arab [sic: "the local Muslim and Islamochristian" - CM] community.
‘A letter sent to the minister this week, which was endorsed by a number of organisations, asked for Alhadeff to be terminated as head of the CRC on the basis that he was not “capable of exercising sound judgment on community relations”, after he sent a community update about Operation Protective Edge to Jewish community members last week.
“In that update, Alhadeff said Hamas had committed “war crimes” (which they have, and how! - CM), and used civilian launching sites for its rocket attacks on Israel(which they have - CM). He wrote that “all options are on the table” for Israel to defend its citizens, but it was operating with care to avoid civilian casualites.
(TheDC) The deputy commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards vowed revenge against Israel for its ongoing military incursion into Gaza, which has already killed hundreds of Palestinians and dozens of Israelis.
“You [people of Israel] are trees without any roots which were planted in the Islamic lands by the British,” Brig. Gen. Hossein Salami said at this week’s Friday prayer sermon in Tehran, Fars News Agency reported. That statement referred to the Balfour Declaration, which led to the dismantling of the Ottoman Empire after World War I and the eventual creation of the state Israel in 1948.
“We will chase you house to house and will take revenge for every drop of blood of our martyrs in Palestine,” Salami said, “and this is the beginning point of Islamic nations awakening for your defeat.”

As rockets from Gaza continue to target and land on Israeli cities, Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah movement is using Abbas’ speech last week as a trigger for more violence. Fatah threatens “to turn Tel Aviv into a ball of fire,” takes credit for several rockets fired into Israel in the last 24 hours and boasts that “throughout history our movement’s hand was the strongest hand in the confrontation with the occupation (i.e., Israel) and still is.”
