“We will wipe out Israel”: Hamas Leaders

editor 24 May 2018

By SWC.. On the anniversary of Shavuot, when Jews around the world commemorate the giving of the Ten Commandments on Mount Sinai — the founding pillar of human civilization — we thought it would be worthwhile to list the Ten Commandments most frequently on the lips of the leaders of Hamas, a terrorist organization committed to the destruction of Israel:

  1. “There is no concession to Jerusalem, no alternative to Palestine, and no solution but to return. This is the Palestinian people taking the initiative for the sake of Jerusalem and the right of return”
    — Ismail Haniyeh, Chairman of Hamas Political Bureau, 2018

The Covenant of Peace
Ezekiel 37:21-28: “…This is what the Sovereign LORD says: ‘I will take the Israelites out of the nations where they have gone. I will gather them from all around and bring them back into their own land. I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel. There will be one king over all of them and they will never again be two nations or be divided into two kingdoms. They will no longer defile themselves with their idols and vile images or with any of their offences, for I will save them from all their sinful backsliding, and I will cleanse them. They will be My people, and I will be their God’…”. [Picture top right: Ezekiel spoke as God had commanded.

Inconvenient Truths About Gaza, Hamas and Israel’s Border

editor 23 May 2018

By SWC.. Why is there a border fence between Israel and Gaza? 
Israel captured Gaza from the Egyptians during the 1967 Six-Day War. For decades, there were no border fences. Many Israelis shopped in Gaza and many Arabs worked in Israel proper. In 2005, then Israeli Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, unilaterally removed all military posts, as well as the thousands of Jews who had settled in the Gaza Strip, and gave Palestinians full control of the territory. [Photo top right: Why? | Credit: Wikimedia Commons].  Read more »

Israel’s Demographic Miracle

editor 23 May 2018

By Ofir Hayfri.. Birthrates are falling across the world, especially in developed nations—except in one. How did mainstream, middle-class Israelis start having children again, and what does it mean?

The more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied. (Exodus 1:12)

Many were the achievements justly celebrated on Israel’s 70th anniversary last month: the country’s prowess in matters military, its world-famous technological knowhow, its record of economic growth and stability, the rich variety of its cultural offerings, the vibrancy of its religious life, the indomitable spirit of its people.

American UN Envoy: No Country Would Act With More Restraint Than Israel Has in Gaza

editor 21 May 2018

By Algemeiner Staff.. A day after several dozen Palestinian rioters were killed in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip as they violently tried to storm across the border into Israel, America’s UN envoy voiced a strong defense of the Jewish state at a UN Security Council meeting on Tuesday (May 15, 2018). Ambassador Nikki Haley said:

“Hamas has attacked the Kerem Shalom crossing, the biggest entry point in Gaza for fuel, food, and medical supplies. This is how determined they are to make the lives of the Palestinian people miserable. They light Molotov cocktails attached to kites on fire and attempt to fly them into Israel to cause as much destruction as possible. When asked yesterday why he put a swastika on his burning kite, the terrorist responded, ‘The Jews go crazy when you mention Hitler.’ This is what is endangering the people of Gaza. Make no mistake: Hamas is pleased with the results from yesterday. I ask my colleagues here in the Security Council, who among us would accept this type of activity on your border? No one would. No country in this chamber would act with more restraint than Israel has.” [Photo top right: US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley. Photo: Reuters / Lucas Jackson].
