Demons rule Gaza.
On Monday, more than 200 rockets were fired at Israel, from Hamas positions in the Gaza Strip. In particular, Ashkelon was hit. Predictably, few news outlets covered it, but as my friend Ardie Geldman predicted, Media would soon join the pack of those condemning Israel. Why?
Israel is going to launch a counter-offensive. That’s sure to get Anderson Cooper on-air with a report about how “Israel fired on Gaza today.”
Breitbart had a small item about the Hamas rockets. Then FOX chimed in with this headline: “Botched Israeli operation in Gaza Strip turns deadly”.
One Hamas rocket hit a parked bus which moments before had been transporting 50 Israeli troops.
A home in Netivot was hit.
Of course, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is huddling with his cabinet and will soon issue orders for the IDF.
We’ve discussed this situation many times, and so have many others. But it is now clear that unless Israel totally dismantles Hamas and eliminates the leadership, this madness and murder will continue. All the while, the world yawns when Israelis are in danger. They howl when a Palestinian is killed.
Yet Palestinians are creating and stoking the violence.
There is another serious problem in the midst of it.
According to the Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center:
“On Friday, November 9, 2018, another ‘return march’ was held in the Gaza Strip along the border with Israel. The events took place after funds from Qatar had been taken into the Gaza Strip, for the salaries of Hamas employees. Ten tankers of fuel for also entered the Gaza Strip through the Kerem Shalom Crossing.
“On November 9, 2018, a Palestinian crossed the security fence in the northern Gaza Strip and went to the community of Netiv HaAsara (north of the Gaza Strip), where he set fire to a number of greenhouses. He was apprehended by an IDF force summoned to the site. During interrogation he admitted it was not the first time he had attempted to cross the fence into Israeli territory.”
The Palestinian Arabs are unhinged. They deserve a state? What evil is this?
And it is unconscionable that Israel allows transfer of payments from Qatar to Hamas!
“On November 8, 2018, Mohammed al-Emadi, chairman of the Qatari Committee for the Reconstruction of Gaza entered the Gaza Strip, bringing with him $15 million in cash. The money earmarked for the salaries of Hamas employees. The money was brought into the Gaza Strip through the Erez Crossing under UN supervision and in coordination with Israel. The PA did not intervene (al-Quds, November 8, 2018).
“The following day the money was paid to employees of the Hamas administration through branches of the post office. The Qataris conditioned the payment on the cancellation of Friday as holiday and asked that the payments be made no later than Saturday. In the meantime, ten fuel tankers carrying diesel fuel paid for by Qatar entered the Gaza Strip through the Kerem Shalom Crossing.”
Hamas has 43,000 people on its payroll; blood money provided by oil-rich Arab states and the West. Almost pathetically, Israel refused to allow payments to 5,000 Hamas employees, because they “belong to the military wing.”
It’s all the military wing!
How long will this evil be allowed to fester?
