EU, U.S., Funding Incentives to Kill Jews
Children living in territories controlled by the Palestinian Authority, funded by Europe and the U.S., are encouraged to kill Jews and destroy Israel.
There can be no peace so long as financial incentives to kill Jews and destroy Israel continue to be dangled in front of Palestinian populations. It is this aggression, and not humanitarian relief, that much of the well-intended international funding -- with no conditions whatsoever attached -- is used for.
The only conclusion one can draw is the EU and the U.S. are actually on the side of terrorism.
So long as the EU and the U.S continue to fund entities which openly promote acts of terror, they should be held criminally liable as accessories to war crimes and crimes against humanity.
The New York Times's Pro-Terrorist Op-Ed
On Saturday, The New York Times featured a piece by jailed Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood member Khaled Al-Qazzaz titled "Why Is the World Silent? Khaled al-Qazzaz: Disappeared by Egypt's Military."
The imprisoned Qazzaz, whose op-ed was "smuggled" out of prison and obtained by The New York Times, posits himself as an innocent “engineer” and “educator” who had just recently become “interested in politics” and was now being unfairly locked up by the newly elected Sisi regime.
'New reality requires security fence on Jordan border'
In light of recent changes in the Middle East, Israel is going to have to construct a security fence along the length of its border with Jordan, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday.
Speaking at the Institute for National Security Studies conference in Tel Aviv, Netanyahu said that in any future peace deal with the Palestinians, the Israel Defense Forces would be the entity protecting Israel in Judea and Samaria, including the Jordan Valley.
Israel "must stabilize the region west of the security line in Jordan," Netanyahu said, adding that the territory of a future Palestinian state, up to the Jordan River, would have to remain under full Israeli security control for many years.
Watch: ISIS fighter says they will 'break all borders to reach Jerusalem'
A video purportedly shot by Islamist militants at a captured Iraqi border post on the Syrian border shows captured Iraqi soldiers and vehicles, while an English-speaking fighter reaffirms the declaration of an Islamic "caliphate."
The fighter, Abu Safiyya from Chile, claims to be standing on the Iraq border with Syria.
In the clip, titled The End of Sykes-Picot, Safiyya says that the ISIS will eventually break all of the Middle East borders to make way to Jerusalem.



Three Officers, Two Cops to Be Dismissed over Teens' Abduction
The Israel Police's Judea and Samaria District Operations Department Commander will be dismissed as a result of the police's mishandling of a call from the abducted yeshiva boys that was mistakenly classified as a prank call, as will the Commander of the District's Control Outpost (Mashlat) and Operations Branch Commander, IDF Radio reported Monday. Also to be dismissed are the policeman who was in charge of the shift at the police's '100' hotline and the senior policewoman who received the information about the call and classified it as a prank.
The five dismissals were decided upon by a committee appointed by Police Commissioner Lt. Gen. Yohanan Danino to look into the police's initial handling of the abduction. The committee handed in its conclusions Monday and Danino accepted them. A disciplinary court will decide whether to fire the policemen or keep them in service.
Ban to Peres: We Take Kidnapping Very Seriously
Speaking at the beginning of a meeting with President Shimon Peres at the UN Headquarters in New York, Ban said that the organization takes the kidnapping very seriously and will do whatever it can to help, in close coordination with international partners.
“Under any circumstances or any reasons this cannot be justified; it's totally unacceptable and I've condemned it in the strongest possible terms,” he said, according to a statement issued by the UN.
“I'm sending again my strong solidarity, first of all, with those young people who were kidnapped and must be enduring terrible days, and their families and friends, and the people of Israel,” Ban noted, adding that he had spoken with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu about the situation.
Nigerian leader decries ‘dastardly’ kidnapping of teens
“Given Nigeria’s experience with the scourge of terrorism, I assure you that we are in solidarity with you, as we believe that any act of terrorism against any nation or group is an act against our common humanity,” Jonathan wrote to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a letter.
“We unequivocally condemn this dastardly act and demand that the children are released unconditionally by their abductors,” he wrote.
Kidnapper's Mother 'Proud of Him to my Last Day'
The mother of one of the Hamas kidnappers who the IDF has identified as being behind the June 12 abduction of three Israeli teens has spoken out, both denying his involvement yet saying if he is behind the abduction "I'll be proud of him till my final day."
The revelation comes in an interview with Channel 10 by the mother of Amar Abu-Eisha (33), whose identity, along with that of Marwan Kawasmeh (29) was released by the IDF last Thursday, as the main actors behind the abduction. The two are known Hamas terrorists from the Hevron region.
When does the BBC call a kidnapping a kidnapping?
Despite the fact that Israeli intelligence reports point to Hamas responsibility for the kidnappings, the BBC might perhaps claim that the fact that no group has so far provided concrete evidence that it holds the abducted teens is the reason for its ambiguous approach. It is therefore interesting to take a look at how it portrayed another kidnapping seven years ago – that of BBC reporter Alan Johnston in the Gaza Strip.
Alan Johnston was kidnapped on March 12th 2007 by the Salafist Jihadist group ‘The Army of Islam’, not far from the BBC’s Gaza office. Nearly two months later – on May 8th - that group (which had previously denied any connection to Johnston’s disappearance) sent a tape to Al Jazeera which included the first concrete evidence that he had been kidnapped.
One might therefore expect that a look through the archives would show that between March 12th and May 8th, the BBC’s almost daily reports on the topic would have referred to Johnston as “missing”, “apparently abducted”, “believed seized” or “disappeared”. That was indeed the case during the first week – see for example reports here, here and here. However, one week into the incident, the BBC’s approach changed.
5 held for death threats against Arab teen who slammed kidnapping
Police arrested five people Monday for threatening to harm an Arab Israeli youth for supporting the Israeli campaign to find and rescue three kidnapped Israeli teens.
The suspects were from Umm al-Fahm and the Jerusalem neighborhood of Abu Tor and the investigation into the threats is ongoing, police said.
Yihye Zakaria Mahameed, a 17-year-old resident of Umm al-Fahm, was subjected to a fierce backlash including death threats from his peers after uploading a photo to Facebook of himself holding an Israeli flag and a “Bring Back Our Boys” sign two weeks ago.
MK Hanin Zoabi's Family Speak Out: 'She Doesn't Represent Us'
Mohammed Zoabi, the 17-year-old who publicly disagreed with his relative MK Hanin Zoabi (Balad) over her blatant anti-Israel stance, isn't the only Zoabi who has had enough of the Arab MK's Israel-hating antics.
On Monday, a representative of the Zoabi family told reporters that there were many people in the extended Zoabi clan who disagreed with Hanin when she said that the Hamas terrorists who kidnapped three Israeli teens weren't terrorists, justifying the abduction.
“The Zoabi clan numbers about 10,000, and we are not all Hanins,” said Nahal Zoabi, a cousin of the MK and the principal of a high school in Kfar Nin, near Afula. “I condemn the kidnapping, it was an immoral and wrong thing to do. I pray that they come home to their families safe and sound, and I would hope to be with the families when the boys come home.”
Nahal Zoabi said she was speaking for many members of the family, who she said strongly disagreed with comments by the MK.
'Zoabi bill' heads to Knesset House Committee

The Ministerial Committee on Legislation voted on Sunday to present Habayit Hayehudi MK Ayelet Shaked's "Zoabi bill" to the Knesset House Committee.
If passed, the legislation would allow the House Committee to impeach and potentially dismiss lawmakers for identifying with a terrorist organization or inciting racism. A two-thirds majority vote would be required to impeach such MKs, and the Supreme Court would have the final say over their dismissal.
The Bewildering Zoabi Family – Where Hatred and Love for Israel Abound (AUDIO)
A relative of firebrand Israeli Arab Knesset Member Haneen Zoabi is awaiting trial in southern Eilat for kicking and harassing a policeman during a drug raid of her home, during which, among other things, she called him a “stinking Jew,” and a “Nazi.”
“You sonofab***h, stinking Jew occupier – this is my home, and I’ll do whatever I want,” Nasrin Zoabi told officers, according to the local ErevErev website.
“You don’t know who you’re dealing with, you Nazi,” she shouted, as police searched for illegal substances.
Netanyahu hints at further Gaza action: Either Hamas reins in rocket fire or we will
If Hamas does not stop rocket fire, Israel will take action, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Monday after at least 14 rockets exploded in an an open area in the Eshkol Regional Council in southern Israel.
The rockets fell following a series of Code Red rocket alert sirens throughout Monday morning, the IDF said. A home was lightly damaged from shrapnel caused by one of the rockets, police said.
Earlier, on Monday morning, two rockets exploded in the south in open areas.
The prime minister told the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee that "Hamas should take into account that we won't allow continued shooting.
Hamas fired rockets for first time since 2012 -- officials
The security sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity, assessed that Hamas had probably launched the barrage in revenge for an Israeli airstrike several hours earlier which killed one person and injured three more.
Israel strikes Gaza after further rocket attack, killing 1
The army said in a statement that the raid was targeting terrorists “in the southern Gaza Strip, during​ their final preparations to launch rockets at civilian communities of southern Israel.”
“Hamas is responsible for the outrageous attacks originating from Gaza, and will be pursued as such,” IDF Spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said.
Palestinians said the man who was killed in the Israeli airstrike had been a member of Hamas.
Passover eve widow to 'JPost': Demolish terrorist's home, his whole family was party to attack
Leading up to the High Court hearing on whether to demolish the family house of Ziad Awwad, Hadas Mizrahi, widow of murdered police officer Baruch Mizrahi told the Jerusalem Post that demolishing the house was "the minimum" that could be done.
Mizrahi said that the entire family were "all partners in this terrible attack and were a family of terrorists," adding that "they all knew" about his attack plans and tried "to hide him" from the authorities.
Temple Mount: Jews Harassed, Ordered to 'Respect Ramadan'
Groups of visibly-Jewish visitors are regularly subjected to harassment and even physical attacks by Muslim extremists, and Rabbi Richman described how even during the heavily-policed visits during Ramadan, the violence is continuing unabated.
The rabbi himself led a group of ten Jewish visitors to the site Monday morning, and described how a peaceful visit soon degenerated into "basically a lynch", after a group of Muslim women started to heckle the group. They were soon joined by others, and the crowd swelled to "hundreds".
"It's something which is impossible to describe," related Rabbi Richman. "You have these women dressed in black who come into your face and they hold up three fingers and gloat - like 'we have your children' - it's just the most unbelievable thing."
I’m Glad I’m Not Getting The Same UN ‘Help’ As Palestinian Refugees By Hassan Amir, refugee from Mosul, Iraq (satire)
A proper refugee agency provides for the immediate physical needs of the displaced, then tries to find them a safe place to go. Whether or not we end up here in Jordan permanently, there’s no way I’m going to entrust my family’s future to an organization that has condemned generations of Palestinians to perpetual limbo, squalor, and discrimination from host countries. United Nations Relief and Works Agency? Spare me. Whose relief, exactly?
Mine. I’m relieved we’re not subject to the bizarre world of Palestinian refugeehood, in which the goal, perversely, is not to find proper accommodation for actual humans, but to maintain those stateless souls as bargaining chips in an ever-desperate struggle to oust the Jews from their state. Give it up, you morons. It’s been 66 years.They’re not going anywhere. But we are – wherever we can find a secure place with a modicum of economic opportunity. We’re not stupid.
Wars in region distract from "central confrontation" with "barbaric Israel"
Op-ed in official PA daily: Wars in Iraq and Syria "divert the people of the Arab nation from the duty of the basic and central confrontation, which is with the barbaric Israel" "[Israel's] leaders forget that these flames are burning because of it, and will be directed towards it in the end"
A recent op-ed in the official Palestinian Authority daily lamented the current wars in Syria and Iraq because they "divert" the Arab nations from the real goal, which is "to bury the [Israeli] myth that is being lived by the bloodthirsty, helmet-clad and rifle-bearing soldier." The op-ed insisted that the civil wars "are burning because of it [Israel], and will be directed towards it in the end."
Hamas Asks Turkey to Stop 'Israeli Aggression'
Hamas political bureau chief Khaled Mashaal spoke with Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu on Monday, asking him for to act against Israel.
Mashaal complained to Davutoglu about the IDF Operation Brother's Keeper, which has cracked down on the Hamas terrorism infrastructure in Judea and Samaria while searching for the three Israeli teens that were abducted by Hamas terrorists on June 12.
The Hamas leader told Davutoglu that Israel is conducting "arrests, aggression and threats" in the operation, reports Walla!.
Egypt to Charge Two 'Israeli Spies'
An Egyptian and two Israelis, including an intelligence officer, will be tried by an Egyptian court for allegedly "spying" for the Jewish state, judicial sources said on Sunday.
The Egyptian, named as Salameh Mohammed Suleiman, is in custody and the two Israeli "fugitives" are to be tried in absentia, the sources said. The Israelis were named as Shlomo Sofer and Juma'a Adbari al-Tarabin.
8 rebel fighters crucified by ISIL in Syria
The report comes amid fierce clashes on the outskirts of Damascus between the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, which is spearheading a major offensive in Iraq, and rebels, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
“ISIL executed eight men in Deir Hafer in the east of Aleppo province” on Saturday because they belonged to rebel groups that had fought against the jihadists as well as Assad’s forces, it said.
ISIL then “crucified them in the main square of the village, where their bodies will remain for three days,” the Britain-based monitor said.
Kurds in Iraq deserve independence, Netanyahu says
Recent turmoil in the Middle East — including the territorial gains made by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant — offers Israel the chance to “build an axis for regional collaboration,” the prime minister said. “This is not only a challenge but also an opportunity. We can’t solve the conflicts between extremist Sunnis and Shiites, not in Syria or Iraq or elsewhere. These two camps are our bitter foes – the Shiites led by the Iranians and the Sunnis led by al-Qaeda and ISIL. But they are also other people’s enemies as well. That is where there is an opportunity for enhanced regional cooperation.”
Such cooperation already exists but Israel should act to boost it to prevent harm to itself and moderate Arab states in the region, Netanyahu said. “It is upon us to support the international efforts to strengthen Jordan, and support the Kurds’ aspiration for independence. Jordan is a stable, moderate country with a strong army that can defend itself, and it is especially due to this that these international efforts are worthy of supporting it. The same is true for the Kurds: They are fighting people that have proven political commitment and political moderation but they’re also worthy of their own political independence.”
