Iran’s Dilemma: Respond to Israeli Actions in Syria with Terror Attacks Abroad?

editor 4 June 2018

By Yoram Schweitzer.. In view of the public promise by senior Iranian spokespersons that Israel would soon weep over its soldiers just as Iran mourned its soldiers, it remains to be seen if and how Iran will retaliate against Israel’s recent broad counter-attack against Iranian targets in Syria: with what intensity, with what method, and in what location.

Russia as Restraining Factor in the Iranian-Israeli Confrontation in Syria

editor 1 June 2018

By Zvi Magen, Vera Michlin-Shapir and Udi Dekel..  INSS Insight No. 1062, May 29, 2018. Given the recent escalation between Iran and Israel in Syria and the development of a direct confrontation between them, the question of the Russian position arises: Is Russia trapped between hawkish factors and being forced, against its will, to position itself as a restraining force or can it benefit from an Israeli-Iranian confrontation, especially as it still controlled and limited?

170 Syrians Were Killed During Three Days This Week — Without Any News Coverage

editor 26 May 2018

By Elder of Ziyon.. On Sunday (May 13, 2018), 114 Arabs were killed. On Monday (May 14, 2018), 30 more. On Tuesday (May 15, 2018), 26 more.

But the media didn’t think that Arabs dying was an interesting story — because those people had the misfortune of being killed by other Arabs. If they had been killed by Jews, then suddenly there would be interest.

“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

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].  (more…)


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]. 



Hamas Co-Founder: Calling Gaza Riots ‘Peaceful Resistance’ Is ‘Deceiving the Public’

editor 21 May 2018

By Shiri Moshe.. A senior Hamas leader said on Sunday that recent Palestinian riots on the border between Israel and the Gaza Strip were backed by the Islamist group’s fighters and weapons. In an interview with Al Jazeera, Hamas co-founder Mahmoud al-Zahhar called allegations that the terrorist group was employing “peaceful resistance” against Israel “a clear terminological deception.” [Photo top right: Hamas co-founder Mahmoud Al-Zahhar speaks in an interview with Al-Jazeera on May 13, 2018.

U.S. Envoy Greenblatt: Hamas Has Taken Gaza Back To The Stone Age

editor 15 May 2018

By Jason Greenblatt..All parties interested in bringing change to Gaza need to face the reality that Hamas has failed its own people. As Hamas continues to exploit protests to foment violence against Israel, finding a way to help the people of Gaza in any meaningful way becomes more and more challenging. All parties interested in bringing change to Gaza need to face the reality that Hamas has failed its own people.

US Jewish and Pro-Israel Groups Extol Trump’s Withdrawal From Iran Nuclear Deal

editor 9 May 2018

By Algemeiner Staff.. Top US Jewish and pro-Israel groups reacted on Tuesday (May 8, 2018) — largely with praise — to President Donald Trump’s announcement of America’s withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal.

An edited sampling of these responses can be read below:

Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations Chairman Stephen Greenberg and Executive Vice Chairman and CEO Malcolm Hoenlein said, “The president’s declaration reflects frustration with Iranian behavior following the implementation of the JCPOA. While there are some differences of views as to the most effective approach, the Conference of Presidents has clearly and consistently called for an agreement which would ensure that Iran never obtains a nuclear weapons capability that would augment its ability to create mayhem in the region through its support of terrorism.” [Photo top right: A military truck carrying a missile and a picture of Iran’s leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei drives in a parade marking the anniversary of the Iran-Iraq war in Tehran.
