From Ian:

It’s Not the ‘Occupation,’ Stupid
Like other days of infamy and horror, including December 7, 1941 and 9/11, October 7 should be remembered as a moment of illumination and clarity. Eighteen years after Israel unilaterally evacuated the Gaza Strip, Hamas sent its killing squads across the border to fight what the group believes is an “occupation.” For Hamas, though, the goal is to end the 75-year-old Zionist occupation of Tel Aviv and every other city and settlement in Israel today. Or, to put it more directly, the Jewish state is still fighting its war of independence.

Even the allegedly more moderate Palestinian Authority declares that the 1948 war is still ongoing every Nakba Day when it sends tens of thousands of violent demonstrators to the streets, chanting, “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.” The very same slogan is now also routinely chanted at college campuses and public squares all over the Unites States.

The mass-murder events of October 7 have understandably evoked memories of the Holocaust. In a phone call with President Biden, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that Hamas committed acts “as in Babyn Yar where Jews where machine-gunned in killing pits.” Although morally correct, the comparison is not quite precise enough. Babyn Yar occurred a thousand miles away from the Middle East; Haj Amin al-Hussein and Hassan al-Banna worked for a Final Solution for the Jews of Palestine.

It’s more appropriate now for Israelis to focus on the strictly local political and religious antecedents of the October 7 massacres. The Hamas shahids of today are the spiritual children of al-Husseini and al-Banna, and of the alliance between Islamic Jew-hatred and Nazi eliminationist anti-Semitism.

Hamas was created in 1987 as the Palestinian branch of the Egyptian Brotherhood. Its founding charter speaks of a sharia state similar to the Caliphate. Its religious slogan is “Islam is the solution.” But it is the legacy of al-Husseini and his embrace of Nazi Jew-hatred that drives Hamas’s political and military policies.

How dispiriting it is, then, to recall the many occasions over the past hundred years on which otherwise well-meaning British and Israeli officials fell into the trap of believing that this Islamist/Nazi ideological movement could be bribed into relative normalcy with political gifts and accommodations. Even the allegedly hardline Netanyahu governments of the past 15 years willfully ignored the lessons of history and complacently believed that Hamas had been deterred by bundles of cash.

The slogan “never again” has historically referred to the catastrophe in Europe where defenseless Jews were led to the slaughter. It must now take on a second meaning in the Jewish homeland. Self-defense is not the issue there. The people, the ordinary citizens of Israel, have shown over and over again that they can come together as one, rise to the occasion and defend their communities. It is rather that Israel’s governments and politicians must now pledge, “Never again.” Meaning, never again will we be lulled into complacency or forget the brutal lesson of the past 100 years. When avowed enemies steeped in Nazi and Islamic Jew-hatred announce they want to kill us, we should take them seriously and prepare to kill them first. Finally, never again will we believe that such enemies can be bribed into decent human behavior.
JPost Editorial: Israel must be given time to complete its mission in Gaza
US President Joe Biden’s call that Israel take “less intrusive action” at hospitals across Gaza aside, Sullivan’s remarks and others he made on Monday, demonstrate that the US understood Israel was obliged to continue focusing on Gaza hospitals due to Hamas’s practices.

The Israeli army is facing “murderous terrorists who continue to say that their goal is the destruction of the State of Israel,” Sullivan stated. “You are dealing with a terrorist organization, Hamas, that takes civilians, hostages, including little children, that uses civilians as human shields, that uses civilian infrastructure – even hospitals, in the most cynical ways possible – as fighting positions, as military operation centers,” he said.

“Israel has to confront that while at the same time not wanting to go assaulting hospitals in firefights that could put innocent people who are getting life-saving medical care in the crossfire. This is the complexity, this is the burden that the Israel Defense Forces are facing as they conduct their operations,” he explained.

The other truth that has emerged during the war is the scope of what Hamas was planning to do to Israel on October 7, and the realization that this war must end the threat the terrorist group poses to Israel and its citizens once and for all.

According to The Washington Post report published this week, Hamas had hoped to push into large Israeli cities and even to the West Bank. Their aim was to provoke a huge Israeli response and launch a regional war.

Those elements, bolstered by Hamas statements made since October 7 that it will continue to launch more murderous strikes against Israel whenever it can, provide more than enough evidence that Israel must continue its morally just battle against the evil force that controls Gaza, and holds hostage not only the 240 people in captivity, but also all the innocent Palestinian residents of the enclave.

Foreign Minister Eli Cohen told reporters on Monday, citing growing international calls for a ceasefire, that Israel has “two to three weeks” to complete its war against Hamas.

Israel has made the case that it is fighting this war not just for itself, but for the democracies of the West, as part of the battle against Iran’s influence across the globe.

The most productive move the leaders of the free world can take right now is to provide Israel with all the time it needs to finish the job and eradicate Hamas, now and forever.
Seth Mandel: Israel’s Narrative Busting
Israel’s much anticipated raid on Gaza’s al-Shifa hospital produced far less drama than many expected, and it should reset many people’s prior assumptions about the IDF’s war conduct—and Hamas’s.

The troops deployed to the Gaza City compound last night have already left the hospital, according to those inside. So far, events have borne out Israel’s account of the war in three key ways.

First, that al-Shifa hospital and others are used by Hamas’s military. “I can confirm for you that we have information that Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad use some hospitals in the Gaza Strip, including Al-Shifa, and tunnels underneath them, to conceal and to support their military operations and to hold hostages,” National Security Council spokesman John Kirby told reporters yesterday, adding that “Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad—J.I.D.—members operate a command and control node from Al-Shifa in Gaza City. They have stored weapons there, and they’re prepared to respond to an Israeli military operation against that facility.”

The U.S. confirmed this with its own intelligence assessment, he stressed. Dave Harden, the former West Bank and Gaza mission director for USAID, chimed in this morning to note that Hamas’s practice of using hospitals was widely understood in Palestinian circles as well. According to international law, he explained, the protection of a hospital from attack would be void “if a hospital is used as a base from which to launch an attack; as an observation post to transmit information of military value; as a weapons depot; as a center for liaison with fighting troops.”

That also helps explain why Kirby specifically said this morning that Hamas has violated the laws of war.

Second, Hamas was specifically using patients in the hospital as human shields. Israel’s demonstrated ability to transfer patients and medical equipment to and from al-Shifa backs up the fact that, as John Podhoretz noted over the weekend, “Every single patient, every single doctor, every single nurse, and every single piece of medical equipment in that building could have been moved, carefully and without molestation from Israel, over the course of the three weeks that Israel’s military task seemed to be to soften the battleground miles and miles north of al-Shifa.”
Israel finds body of Gaza hostage near Al-Shifa hospital
The IDF announced on Thursday evening that it had found the body of Yehudit Weiss, an Israeli civilian thought to have been taken hostage by Hamas on October 7.

The remains of Weiss, a resident of the southern kibbutz of Be'eri, were found near a structure adjacent to the Al-Shifa Hospital which serves as a military weapons cache, the IDF said.

Her body was found by the IDF's 603rd Combat Engineering Battalion operating in Gaza as part of Operation Swords of Iron.

Weiss was battling cancer before her death at the hands of Hamas.

Pro-Palestinian protester arrested in death of Jewish man during rival LA rallies
California authorities arrested a pro-Palestinian college professor on Thursday in connection with the death of a Jewish man during rival demonstrations over the Israel-Hamas war.

The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office said 50-year-old Loay Abdelfattah Alnaji was booked into jail for investigation of involuntary manslaughter.

Paul Kessler, 69, died early November 6 at a hospital following a November 5 confrontation with Alnaji in Thousand Oaks, a suburb northwest of Los Angeles.

Police allege that Alnaji caused Kessler to knock his head onto the concrete when he fell, which resulted in brain hemorrhaging that would kill him hours later in the hospital.

Alnaji stayed at the scene and told deputies he had called 911, Sheriff Jim Fryhoff said last week.

Kessler was among a group of pro-Israel demonstrators who showed up at the event that was advertised as a peaceful gathering to support Palestinians. About 75 people in total were there and patrols in the area reported seeing no indication of violence 15 minutes before the altercation, officials said.

Police briefly detained Alnaji earlier this month for questioning but let him go because they did not have sufficient evidence against him at the time to make an arrest.

Officials had said investigators were getting conflicting information from witnesses on both sides about what took place before the fall and had not ruled out the possibility of a hate crime.

Authorities did not say what new evidence they uncovered led to Thursday’s arrest and police said in a statement that they are still crowdsourcing for additional footage anyone might have from the moments before Kessler hit the ground and were offering a $1,000 reward.

Alnaji is a computer science professor at Ventura County Community College’s Moorpark campus.

Fox News reported that Alnaji shared a video on his since-deleted Instagram account that featured a pro-Palestinian activist who compared the Hamas terror group to civil rights leaders Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Gandhi.

"A Tide Of Human MISERY!" - Douglas Murray Reports From Gaza On IDF Special Operation
At least 100 people are believed to have travelled from the UK to Israel to serve in the Israeli military as it mounts a retaliatory campaign against Hamas.

The Israeli Embassy in the UK said it was understood those who travelled were “reservists and active duty soldiers” in the Israel Defence Forces (IDF).

A statement said: “The Embassy of Israel understands that at least 100 reservists and active duty soldiers have gone back to Israel from the UK to serve in the IDF”.

Douglas Murray joins Julia Hartley-Brewer from Jerusalem to discuss how he joined a special operation with the IDF in Gaza.

"Horror Stories Wherever You Go!" - Douglas Murray Talks To Man Who Watched Hamas Murder His Family
Sir Keir Starmer has lost eight frontbenchers after he suffered a major rebellion in a Commons vote calling for a ceasefire in Gaza.

Four shadow ministers, including Jess Phillips, Yasmin Qureshi, Afzal Khan and Paula Barker, quit on Wednesday evening after deciding to support an SNP amendment to the King’s Speech backing a ceasefire.

Julia Hartley-Brewer speaks to Douglas Murray in Jerusalem as he joins the IDF on a special forces mission in Gaza.

Douglas explains how he sat down with an Israeli man whose family were killed in the October 7 Hamas attacks.

He goes on to criticise MPs for their call for a ceasefire in Gaza, challenging them to visit the Kibbutz and witness the 'horrific' conditions firsthand.

“A ceasefire would return to the situation that led to this.”

NEW FOOTAGE: IDF blows up Hamas tunnel near hospital WARNING: Graphic imagery—FOX News contributor Douglas Murray recounts what he witnessed from the front lines of the fight in the Gaza Strip on 'The Story with Martha MacCallum.'

Dov Lieber: Israel Dominates Battlefield with Technological Advantage over Hamas
In the Negev Desert, commanders from the Givati Brigade watch a bank of screens showing the real-time location of all Israeli and Palestinian forces inside Gaza. They use this information to move around troops and weapons and surveillance aircraft like pieces on a chessboard.

This node of a sprawling technological nerve center, receiving thousands of battlefield data points from drones, jet fighters, naval ships, tanks and soldiers, has enabled the Israeli military to carry out a sweeping takeover of a swath of Hamas' stronghold in Gaza City in less than three weeks with fewer than 50 troop deaths.

On Saturday, commanders in the Givati command center watched the evacuation of Al-Rantisi Hospital in Gaza City. A video shown to the Wall Street Journal showed a few militants with guns slung around their shoulders leaving the hospital among the crowds of civilians. Should the IDF commanders on the ground engage the militants right then and there or let them leave? The commanders ultimately decided to let the militants go. Later that day, one of those militants was killed by a drone strike while hiding out in a school, indicating his movements were tracked after leaving the hospital.
Hamas' grave miscalculation on how Israel would react
The IDF’s takeover of al-Shifa hospital is a sign of the speed at which the ground offensive has thus far progressed—although many challenges await, and the hostages have not yet been freed. But Israel’s relative success raises an obvious question: what did Hamas expect to happen, and what did it hope to achieve in the October 7 attacks? Now that some of the terrorist group’s plans and documents have been seized, a better sense is emerging. Yossi Kuperwasser explains:

Hamas likely believed that had Israel subscribed to a small-scale [retaliation], it could build on the success of October 7 and effect a change that would result in a new “equation” between the organization and the Jewish state. Meaning, the release of the imprisoned terrorists, lifting the blockade, and stopping the normalization process between Israel and Saudi Arabia.

Hamas assessed that Israel’s weakness and its problematic relations with the United States, coupled with its inherent reluctance to pay the high price involved in a broad military operation to remove Hamas from Gaza, would ultimately prevent it from completely defeating Hamas, just like in previous flare-ups. In previous rounds, whenever the fighting ended, both sides licked their wounds, but Hamas would then quickly recover and posed a threat to the Gaza area and Israel as a whole.

All actions by Hamas, Iran and its proxies (Hizballah, the Houthis, and Shiite militias in Iraq), Qatar, and Turkey should be seen in the context of the attempt to persuade President Joe Biden to pressure Israel to stop the fighting and eventually adopt an alternative approach. This effort motivates them to create the impression that there is a severe humanitarian crisis in Gaza. It is what made Hamas play a cynical game with the hostages, and this is also what has prompted the Shiite militias in Iraq to step up their actions.

Niall Ferguson: Israel, Islam & the New Cold War
John Anderson is re-joined by pre-eminent historian Niall Ferguson to analyse the latest conflict between Israel and Hamas. Ferguson argues that due to the nature of Hamas’ urban warfare, tunnel systems and civilian shields, Israel will have a long and difficult campaign ahead. He also points out that the decline in Western support for Israel, particularly in the younger generations, is due to a woke university system propagating Islamist and left-wing viewpoints, attempting to create a moral equivalence between the October 7 terrorist attacks and Israel’s response.

Niall Ferguson, MA, D.Phil., is the Milbank Family Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, and a senior fellow of the Centre for European Studies, Harvard, where he served for twelve years as the Laurence A. Tisch Professor of History.

He is the author of fifteen books, most recently Doom: The Politics of Catastrophe. His previous book, Kissinger, 1923-1968: The Idealist, won the Council on Foreign Relations Arthur Ross Prize.

‘Has to be accomplished’: General Keane on Israel’s retaliation against Hamas
Former US Army Vice Chief of Staff General Jack Keane says the Israel Defence Force objective is the “right” one to have in their retaliation against Hamas.

“They are about that business it is the right objective to have,” Mr Keane told Sky News host Andrew Bolt.

“Hamas offers up those civilians to be casualties – this time the military aim is very different.

“They know full well now that if they don’t dismantle Hamas, if they don’t take the network down … then they’re going to come back, they’ll reset and re-attack.”

Mr Keane sat down with Mr Bolt to discuss the Israel-Hamas war and the attacks on Gaza.

‘Evil truly did walk the earth’: Andrew Hastie on raw footage of Hamas attack
Shadow Defence Minister Andrew Hastie was one of the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security members shown harrowing footage of the October 7th Hamas attack on Israel.

“We thought it was a special obligation on us to watch it, it is important that we understand the true character of a listed terror organisation,” Mr Hastie told Sky News host Caleb Bond.

“I’ve got to say it was horrific, brutal, it was 43 minutes, on it there were 138 murders which is less than ten per cent of the Israelis who were murdered that day by Hamas.

“Can I say having seen it, evil truly did walk the earth on October 7th in Israel.”

Erdan: Israel doing ‘dirty work’ for Arab countries that might govern Gaza

Israel: UN agencies ‘complicit’ in Hamas war crimes U.S. allows U.N. resolution calling for ‘urgent and extended’ humanitarian pauses to pass
The United Nations Security Council passed a resolution on Wednesday calling for “urgent and extended humanitarian pauses and corridors throughout the Gaza Strip,” the body’s first successful attempt to address the Israel-Hamas war. The United States did not vote for the measure — nor did it veto the resolution.

The resolution also “calls for the immediate and unconditional release of all hostages held by Hamas and other groups, especially children, as well as ensuring immediate humanitarian access.”

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Linda Thomas-Greenfield said during debate over the measure that the “United States could not vote yes on a text that did not condemn Hamas or reaffirm the right of all member states to protect their citizens from terrorist attacks.”

But, she added, “while this text does not include a condemnation of Hamas, this is the first time we have ever adopted a resolution that even mentions the word ‘Hamas.’”

Israel slammed the resolution, pointing out — as Thomas-Greenfield did — that the Security Council has still not condemned Hamas’ Oct. 7 terrorist attack in Israel, which this resolution also did not address.

“The resolution focuses solely on the humanitarian situation in Gaza. It makes no mention of what led up to this moment,” said Brett Jonathan Miller, Israel’s deputy permanent representative to the UN. “The resolution makes it seem as if what we are witnessing in Gaza happened of its own accord.”

The vote comes after four previous attempts by the body to address the violence were vetoed. On Oct. 18, Thomas-Greenfield vetoed a resolution drafted by Brazil that she condemned because it “made no mention of Israel’s right of self-defense.”

On Wednesday, she came to a different conclusion.

“Although the United States is deeply disappointed by what is not in this text, we support many of the important provisions this Council has adopted.” Thomas-Greenfield noted that the U.S. has also called for the release of all hostages and for humanitarian pauses to help civilians in Gaza. “At the end of the day, this all comes down to one clear, urgent goal: To save innocent lives.”

United Nations Humanitarian Affairs Officer Nurhaida Rahim dismisses account of October 7 massacre as “drivel”

Rapporteur damaging United Nations reputation
Former foreign minister Alexander Downer has slammed United Nations rapporteur Francesca Albanese over her stance on the Israel-Hamas conflict.

The UN rapporteur did an interview on The Project on Wednesday night where she claimed Israel had no right to use its powers to defend itself because Gaza is under its 'belligerent occupation'.

“I think she is doing the reputation of the UN huge damage, and she needs to reflect on the damage that she’s doing,” he told Sky News host Chris Kenny.

“I mean the secretary-general himself has been very partisan and anti-Israeli in many of the comments that he has made.

“But this woman Albanese, no relation, comes to Australia and I think has exacerbated the problem of the reputation with the UN.”

Gaza will need to be 'demilitarised' and 'rebuilt': Senior Advisor to Israel's PM
Senior Advisor to Benjamin Netanyahu, Mark Regev says 16 years of Hamas’ rule has only brought its people bloodshed as “it becomes clear” to Israel that Gaza will need to be “demilitarised”.

"It is clear that when this is over, Gaza will have to become demilitarised, deradicalised and rebuilt,” Mr Regev told Sky News Australia host Piers Morgan.

“Though I know it is very difficult for the civilian population of Gaza who are going through what is a traumatic experience.

“Ultimately, when this is over, it will be a lot better for them too.

“The people of Gaza also deserve better than the current dictatorial, terrorist regime which has ruled them.”

Media throw ‘smears’ at Israel in reporting of IDF’s raid on Al-Shifa Hospital
Sky News host Chris Kenny says the BBC’s reporting on Al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza is “typical of the smears thrown at Israel”.

Mr Kenny’s remarks come after Israel claimed its forces have entered Gaza’s Al-Shifa Hospital to carry out an operation against Hamas.

A BBC presenter claimed that Israel was “targeting” medical teams and Arab speakers in Gaza’s Al-Shifa Hospital, which the network had to later apologise for.

Mr Kenny provided another example but from the ABC “passing on information out of Gaza as if it is fact” despite Hamas being the one who “controls all the information” coming out of the Strip.

“Why are such standards applied to Israel, where nothing can really be hidden, where there is accountability, and yet those standards are not applied to Hamas, an evil, lying, bloodthirsty terrorist organisation happy to kill its critics?” he said.

“It is just wrong, so wrong, and it’s part of the reason that there’s so much anti-Israel hatred generated right around the world.”

Marcia Langton not ‘unidimensional’ after condemning Hamas
Australian Jewish Association President Dr David Adler says Marcia Langton has proved she is not “unidimensional” as she condemned Hamas in her latest column in The Australian.

According to Sky News host Andrew Bolt, Ms Langton is the first Aboriginal leader to speak out against the people claiming Palestinians of Gaza are fighting the same kind of enemies as Aboriginal Australians.

“My assessment of her during the referendum discussions was that she was a radical extremist and unidimensional and … we thought one of the greatest assets for the No campaign were some of the yes activists like Marcia Langton,” Dr Adler told Mr Bolt.

“To her credit, she’s proved she is not unidimensional and in the particular piece … her second sentence is three words: ‘I condemn Hamas’ – no ifs, no buts.

“I think that also is a very useful signal for people on the left of politics who have jumped on this anti-Israel … radical stuff.”

Victorian Jews ‘outraged’ at mural because it ‘plays on ugly Jewish stereotypes’
Sky News host Andrew Bolt says he was contacted by a couple of Melbourne Jews and a former Labor minister who were “outraged” by a mural in Victoria that was funded by the state government.

“They’re appalled because they think it plays on ugly Jewish stereotypes, the big nose and all,” he said.

The artist – who’s a pro-Palestine supporter – says in no way was he caricaturing Jews and that the mural is about him and his late brother, and it’s in his signature style of work.

“The local council says it actually consulted with Jewish groups about it, and most … said it was not anti-Semitic, but the council says that was indeed before the war in Gaza, and there are heightened sensitivities now,” Mr Bolt said.

“The artist may not have meant it that way at all, but is it a work that should stay or go – I tell you what? The reaction today on Twitter is not kind.”

Justin Trudeau ambushed as pro-Palestine activists scream in his face
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has been swarmed by pro-Palestine protesters inside a Vancouver restaurant while dining out on Tuesday night.

The Instagram account 'palsolidaritycad' posted a video showing the crowd chanting "ceasefire now" as Trudeau was getting ready to depart from Vij’s, an Indian restaurant.

Protesters accused Trudeau of having "blood on your hands" and implored, "how many children have to die?"

Footage showed Trudeau navigating through the restaurant, greeting diners, and hugging Vikram Vij, the restaurant owner, before leaving.

Outside, more protesters awaited, continuing their demands for a ceasefire and displaying posters.

A second incident occurred at a different restaurant in Vancouver's Chinatown, involving more protests, but this time with a heavy police intervention.

Footage showed protesters chanting slogans and confronting Trudeau outside the Bagheera restaurant.

Vancouver police said they deployed around 100 officers to manage the crowd, made two arrests, and allowed Trudeau to exit the restaurant.

It comes as the Canadian Prime Minister had earlier urged Israel to exercise "maximum restraint" in its retaliation against Hamas for the October 7 terrorist attack.

Burgertory Caufield fire: Cops reveal why investigation into alleged arson attack at burger store that sparked a near-riot between rival groups has 'stalled'
An investigation into an alleged arson attack at a popular burger outlet has 'stalled', with police saying there is no evidence it was racially motivated and the owner yet to provide a statement.

Victoria's Chief Commissioner, Shane Patton, revealed in an ABC Radio interview that investigators are no closer to finding a motivation behind the attack which saw the Burgertory restaurant in Caulfield, Melbourne, burnt to the ground on November 10.

Burgertory's CEO Hash Tayeh, 32, had previously speculated the crime must have been politically motivated due to his strong pro-Palestinian stance.

Mr Tayeh, a Palestinian-Australian, has moved his family to a safe house since the attack which was allegedly followed by violent threats towards him.

But the threats have not yet been substantiated with police saying the entrepreneur has yet to officially report them.

Cmsr Patton said investigations into the fire are ongoing.

'The investigation is a very active one at the moment. We are informed by the investigators and so I’m not going to go in any great detail other than there is nothing to suggest it is a prejudice-motivated crime,' he said.

The commissioner also said that his department is 'very happy' to look into any threats of violence that Mr Tayeh has received if he would like to report them.
