Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood Gov: “Israel Stole $50 Billion of Our Sand”

Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood Gov: “Israel Stole $50 Billion of Our Sand”

Posted By Daniel Greenfield  In The Point

Sand. It’s the one truly rare thing in the Middle East because it’s so very rare. And while there’s no word on whether the feared Mossad Sharks and IAF vulture had anything to do with it, they probably did. Sinai used to be known for its sand, until the Jews stole it all to build massive sand castles with which to oppress the Palestinian people.

They say they are winning….

From the Elder:

Islamic Jihad refuses cease fire – because they think they are winning

Islamic Jihad put out an announcement saying that they refuse to consider a cease-fire from their rocket attacks. And the reason seems to be that they think that they are winning.

Here are the brave mujahadeen who are too afraid to show their faces at a press conference:

They are certainly winning the propaganda war:

Dutch newspaper captions Iron Dome as “firing rockets into Gaza” (updated x2)

If you think that media bias against Israel is bad in English-language media, check this out from the DutchVolkskrant.nl site:

The caption translates to “A rocket fired from Israel to the Gaza Strip.”

This is the Iron Dome system, where rockets are fired to destroy incoming Grad rockets from the Gaza Strip!

UPDATE: The caption was corrected to “An Israeli Iron Dome rocket is fired to intercept an incoming rocket from Gaza.”

PRC terrorists admit Hamas is not discouraging rocket fire

Hamas apologists love to say that any rocket fire from Gaza is done despite Hamas efforts for calm. While this may be true sometimes, the current attacks – some 180 rockets since Friday – are being done without any Hamas interference whatsoever.

I used to hate Israel. I used to think the Left was always right. Not any more. Now I loathe Palestinian terrorists. Now I see why Israel has to be hard. Now I see the Left can be Right — as in right-wing. So why did I change my mind so completely?    Thanks to TT for the tip.

Islamic Savages Fire Qassam Rockets at Israel, Kindergarten Hit

The Blaze
Palestinian Arab terrorists are intensifying their assault on Israel, this time launching two Qassam rockets from Gaza into the western Negev late Tuesday afternoon. Israel National News reports that one rocket hit a local kindergarten, and while no physical injuries were sustained in the attack, the school was badly damaged. If the school had not already closed for the day, the attack would have resulted in a devastating loss of life.

INN reports that the other rocket detonated in an open area in the western Negev, adding:

The rocket attacks mark a continuation of the airstrikes-for-rocket-attacks paradigm that has defined Israel’s poor security situation in the south for many years.

Earlier on Tuesday, IDF chief of staff Benny Gantz told the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Security Committee a resumption of rocket fire from Gaza would necessitate a major operation aimed at changing strategic realities vis-a-vis Hamas and its terror allies in Gaza.

However, Gantz also balked at a prolonged operation, which many analysts say would be required for an operation to have a lasting impact on Gaza’s terror infrastructure.

“We will need to shorten the length of fighting as much as possible,” Gantz said.

The news of a Qassam rocket striking an Israeli school is perhaps not shocking, however, as Palestinian militants have a track-record of launching their assaults at civilian targets, and often from within civilian locations.

Vehicle Jihad

 Normally the Israeli’s finish these guys off on the spot. Unfortunately in this case they let the perp live and that’s why we’re having this unnecessary court circus:

Shouting “Allahu Akbar,” Issa Islam “did not stop, but rather stepped on the gas and continued his killing spree” — his lawyer says it was an “accident”

Automobile accidents, jihadi style: “Killing rampage suspect goes on trial,” by Naama Cohen-Friedman for Ynet News, November 10 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

The trial of Issa Ibrahim Islam, a truck driver who went on a killing rampage on Nakba Day, opened at the Tel Aviv District Court on Thursday.The Kfar Kassem resident is accused of killing 29 year-old Aviv Morag and injuring 17 others while recklessly driving a truck along Bar-Lev Street in Tel Aviv last May. The driver also ran over several vehicles during the rampage.

Reminds me of this unforgettable “accident” in Italy:

Eight cyclists killed in accident in Italy

La Repubblica has named the driver of the car as Chafik Elketani, a 21-year-old of Moroccan origin. He is reported to have been under the influence of marijuana at the time of the crash. He was also driving without a licence, as he was serving a six-month suspension for dangerous driving.

US to give Egypt F-16 fighter jet in Grapel deal’

They couldn’t just tell the Mohammedan thugs in Egypt  to release Grapel ‘or else’… they had to “make a deal…?”

Ma’an news agency report: US participated in negotiations, worked to sweeten deal over dual US-Israeli citizen Grapel, held on spying charges.

The United States is set to give Egypt an F-16 fighter jet as part of the deal to release dual US-Israeli citizen Ilan Grapel, Palestinian Ma’an news agency reported Thursday. (J-Post)  Turns out Grapel is yet another leftist loon who went to assist the Muslim Brotherhood is their ‘Freedom & Democracy’ fraud…….
“Celebratory Shooting”

The Questions Never Asked About Palestine

Obama: Peace requires compromise. Abbas: We’ll never compromise. 

(poster from the Elder of Ziyon)

By Steve Feldman/American Thinker

As the Palestinian-Arabs and their friends make their latest push for “Palestinian” statehood at the United Nations this week, once again the wrong questions are being asked, while the pertinent questions every reporter, activist, and foreign minister should be asking never arise.

Why do “Palestinians” need a state of their own?  Who are these “stateless” people?  What is their history?  Where have they been for all of these years?

In the spirit of “you don’t know what you don’t know,” here are some Hansel-and-Gretel-like bread crumbs to guide journalists and others to the questions they might ask:

Where does the name “Palestine” come from and who have been the people who’ve lived there?  Of course, it was coined by the conquering Romans to add insult to injury to a Jewish nation they sought to obliterate.  The Romans conquered the land, but there was always a remnant of Jewish people living there.

While throughout the ages the land was under control of various powers, none called themselves “Palestinian,” and there was never a nation with that name.  It was that Jewish remnant and those Jews who joined them over time who became the “Palestinians.”

Israel Part II

 British Taxpayers Must Be Pleased:

Just what Britons didn’t need to hear in a global fiscal crisis, as the PA pulls in a total of £86 million in British aid each year. Will the government continue to pay with “willing submission” (Qur’an 9:29)?

“Families of suicide bombers given £5m in British aid cash,” by Matthew Kalman for the Daily Mail, August 8 (thanks to JW):  Another £3million has been given to 5,500 Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli jails. 

Cripples to the Front: The Islamic Jihad Cripple Corps

“Bombing us and leaving us amputees will not stop the Jihad,” the military wing’s website quoted one militant, Abu Abdallah who lost both his legs in clashes near Khan Yunis. “We will continue to fight even when our bodies are torn to pieces.”   In all seriousness, this really means that they will try to send disabled people through checkpoints and so forth with bomb belts.  (Elder of Ziyon)

The “Palestine” to be voted on at the U.N. does not meet criteria for statehood under international law

 Fatah, the PA, and the PLO are demanding title to lands and authority over populations they do not control, being as they are under the rule of Hamas and Israel.

The essay below focuses primarily on how the current conditions in the various Palestinian governing parties set the stage for a paralyzed government, and for unending violence over the control of the government.

Another consideration is the inherent instability in an Islamic state over Sharia’s reach into society. As Sharia encompasses all areas of human existence, public and private, there can always be more of it to impose. Someone will always want more Sharia and be willing to kill, and overthrow governments — even Islamic ones — to get it. Therein lies still more fuel for civil war. “The Palestinians’ Imaginary State,” by Steven J. Rosen forForeign Policy, August 3:

Motherly Love: ‘My Son Doesn’t Kill Jews’

But he did.

Typical motherly reaction after the fact:

Israel: Muslim truck driver shouting “Allahu akbar” and “death to the Jews” plows into cars, murdering one person, injuring 17

For jihadis and Islamic supremacists in general, the founding of the State of Israel was a nakba (catastrophe). This, however, is not.

“‘Driver in Tel Aviv truck rampage shouted death to Jews,'” by Yaakov Lappin in the Jerusalem Post, May 15 (thanks to JW):

A witness who claims he stopped the driver who hit several cars on Tel Aviv’s Bar Lev Street Sunday in what police called a suspected terror attack said he initially thought the driver had just lost control of his brakes.Arik Levy told Israel Radio that when he went to go help the driver, he saw him continue to hit cars and street lights, and heard him saying “Allahu Akbar” and “death to Jews.”

Levy said he ran up to the driver, the two struggled for a short time, and then police arrived at the scene after 10 minutes.

Another witness who saw the incident told The Jerusalem Post the driver “looked crazy.”

The eye witness, 18-year-old Natalie, said she saw the truck driver driving in zigzags, and “deliberately hitting everything he saw.”

“It was obvious it was deliberate,” she said. “He was looking at the road and then back down at his wheel. He looked crazy.”

Bar Lev street was strewn with wreckage, with several badly-damaged vehicles parked in different areas on the street. Some of the vehicles were lying in the middle of the dividing fence in the opposing traffic lane, street signs were flattened and there was glass on street….

Meanwhile, in Gaza:
