Full History Of Israel and Conflict W/ Palestine

This is an absolute must read for anyone who wants to educate themselves on how Israel was established, the conflict between Israel and Palestine and where it comes from. 

Also it highlights how the UN and Countries involved seem to forget that they were the ones who established the state of israel, which is now 22% of the original British Mandate, yet the Palestinians deserve the land of israel as well, the Jewish State didn’t sacrifice enough?  The IDF is called the “Israel Attack Force” it makes me sick.

These people do not want peace they pretend to because it serves their cause, yet Israel is positioned as the Enemy by the media in general and this will have devastating consequences if not changed.

Terrorist Attack Thwarted as IDF Seizes Anti-Tank Weapon

In another sign that the situation in Judea and Samaria is heating up, IDF troops on Monday arrested an Arab terrorist who was found to have in his possession a Carl Gustav recoilless rifle, a military-grade weapon used to take out tanks and armored vehicles. The 84 calibre automatic weapon has a range of up to 1,000 meters, and can utilize high explosive ammunition.

 

The weapon is far more sophisticated than those carried by the average terrorist. Amir Lazover, the commander of the unit that discovered the weapon, said that the terrorist was stopped at a checkpoint, where soldiers discovered the weapon. Large forces of troops were called in, as were members of the bomb squad.

 

There is no doubt, Lazover said, that the terrorist was on his way to conduct a major attack. “We were able to stop a terror attack,” he said, adding that the incident made clear that the terrorists were checking to see whether IDF soldiers were remaining attentive to the situation in Judea and Samaria.

 

Last week, US Secretary of State John Kerry “threatened” Israel with a new intifada if it did not agree to withdraw from most of Judea and Samaria, as the Palestinian Authority demands. In an interview withChannel 2 television, Kerry said that there would be “chaos” and a “third intifada” if Israel’s “peace talks” with the Palestinian Authority (PA) fail. “Failure of the talks will increase Israel’s isolation in the world,” Kerry said. “The alternative to getting back to the talks is a potential of chaos. I mean, does Israel want a third intifada?”

Israeli leaders slammed the comments, saying they amounted to incitement and warning such rhetoric could become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

 

Lazover said that, currently, there was no third intifada developing. “There has not been an increase in the number of security incidents in recent weeks, but the quality of these potential attacks have increased,” he said.

The US has now given over 500 million in aid to the Palestinians in 2013 Alone

The US just gave the Palestinians $148 million in aid, and they are following that up with another round of $75 million.  Add this to the money donated to UNWRA (Which is supposed to be the vehicle for aid to the Palestinians) and you are around $525 million dollars in aid for 2013.

This just proves the Meme above true.  In brokering peace talks not only is the US government pressuring Israel to release CONVICTED terrorists, but it is continuously funding their operations.  

Its time to wake up and stand against this or one day we will wake up and there won’t be a Jew left in Israel…

BREAKING NEWS: ISRAEL BOMBS SYRIAN BASE HOLDING WEAPONS FOR HEZBOLLAH

Israeli warplanes struck a military base near the Syrian city of Latakia on Thursday, an Obama administration official confirmed to CNN.

An explosion at a missile storage site in the area was widely reported in the Israeli press, but an attack has not been confirmed by the Israeli government.

The target, according to the Obama administration official, was missiles and related equipment the Israelis felt might be transferred to Hezbollah. The official declined to be identified because of the sensitive nature of the information.

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Stay here for constant updates and more information on these events. Initially I would say this is a good thing, stopping Hezbollah from getting weapons, but lets see if the international community recognizes the importance of keeping those weapons away from a terrorist organization.

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________11/4/2013 Update Via TheBlaze.com – This information was leaked by the White House causing uproar by the Israeli government, which in my opinion is well allowed.  They have every right to be upset at the US for this.  Especially if it was done on purpose, which I wouldn’t be surprised if it was considering Obama’s past behavior and comments regarding the middle east. 

The UN Owns The ‘Guinness World Record’ for Hypocrisy

Israel’s U.N. Ambassador, Ron Prosor, attacked on Thursday the requests by Syria and Iran to join the UN’s Human Rights Commission (UNHRC).

“A new Guinness world’s record at the UN? Putting Syria and Iran in the UNHRC is like appointing mob bosses to head the witness protection plan,” Prosor said in a statement.

The move comes as the Syrian regime of Bashar el-Assad continues a bloody campaign to crush a two-year rebellion, which has seen massive human rights violations and accusations of war crimes on both sides, including the use of chemical weapons and the indiscriminate bombardment of civilian areas by regime forces.

Iran’s candidacy comes only days after Arutz Sheva revealed that the Islamic Republic had executed 61 people in less than a month, following the election of  Hassan Rouhani as the country’s new president on June 14. Human rights activists now claim that number has risen to more than 70.

 

The candidacies put forth by the two countries surprised even some of the more cynical officials in the UN.

 

Besides Syria, where the death toll in the civil war is approaching 100,000, and Iran, which denies the Holocaust and vows to erase Israel from the map, other candidacies announced Wednesday were those of China, Saudi Arabia, Vietnam, Jordan and the Maldives.

 

The estimates in the UN are that Syria and Iran will fail to receive enough support in the General Assembly vote – to be held in the fall – in order to enter the UNHRC.

However, a UN source told Arutz Sheva, “Nowadays you can never know anything. If these countries enter the Commission, it will be a big joke.”

 

NGO calls on Western nations to mobilise in opposition

Hillel Neuer, the head of UN Watch, a Geneva-based advocacy group that monitors the work of the United Nations, called on the U.S. and the EU to mobilize opposition to Iran and Syria, as well as to “others in the rogues’ gallery of declared candidates: Algeria, Chad, China, Cuba, Russia, Saudi Arabia and Vietnam.”

“The U.S. and EU should encourage worthy candidates from each regional group to throw their hats in the ring, and then lobby for their election over the current slate of tyrannies and human rights abusers,” said Neuer.

“Countries that murder and torture their own people must not be allowed to become the world’s judges on human rights,” he added.

Neuer continued:

“Given that Iran was recently elected to the UN commission on women’s rights, and Syria to UNESCO’s human rights committee, we cannot take anything for granted.”

“Syria is certainly less popular now, but Iran chairs the largest UN voting bloc — the non-aligned movement — through which it hosted a Tehran summit last year that drew many world leaders including UN chief Ban Ki-moon,” Neuer said. “We need to seriously fight these candidacies.”

US levels harsh criticism

In response to the news, America’s U.N. Ambassador Rosemary DiCarlo condemned the move as “highly inappropriate,” given that both Syria and Iran are under investigation for their own gross violations of basic human rights. 

“In our view, attempts by either country to join the Human Rights Council are highly inappropriate, given the Human Rights Council’s existing mandates to investigation human rights violation in these countries, their egregious records on human rights, and their ongoing cooperation to suppress democratic aspirations in Syria.”

One-liners

Israel’s Ambassador to the UN is known for his witty one-liners in rebutting the arguments of Israel’s detractors in the United Nations.

At a UN Security Council meeting back in February, he famously responded to a reluctance among some EU-member states to blacklisting Hezbollah, due to its charitable activity in Lebanon by retorting:

“Calling Hezbollah a charity is like calling al- Qaida an urban-planning organization because of its desire to level tall buildings.”

Security Expert Mark Langfan Shows how a Palestinian State in The ‘West Bank’ Would Leave Israel “Indefensible”

Commentary by Arutz Sheva,

As negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority continue amid international calls for a 23rd Arab state in the Judea and Samaria (West Bank) region – which would leave Israel with the territory it held prior to the 1967 Six-Day War – familiar calls from within Israel are being heard warning of the “indefensible borders” the Jewish State would be left with in such an eventuality.

It is not a new claim. Israel’s former Foreign Minister Abba Eban famously referred to the so-called “’67 borders” as “Auschwitz borders,” provocatively expressing the fears of many Israelis that a return to the 1949 Armistice lines would leave them perilously vulnerable to attack in a neighborhood which has proven all too often to be hostile to their very presence.

But is that really the case? Or, as some critics of Israel claim, are those fears simply unfounded?

One prominent Israel advocate who has taken it upon himself to clearly illustrate the case is New York based attorney Mark Langfan. On Tuesday Langfan appeared on the CBN News show “The Watchman with Erick Stakelbeck,” and, with the aid of three topographical maps set out to prove why in his view a Palestinian state in Judea and Samaria would create an indefensible security situation for Israel.

The show starts with a regional map showing how Israel provides “the first and last line of defense” between Islamic terror and NATO nations, first among them Greece.

Langfan then showcased a topographical map illustrating how the inaccurately termed “West Bank” actually consists of the mountains of Judea and Samaria. His analysis predicts a Palestinian state there could turn into a strategic terror base in the heart of Israel.

The maps show how 70% of Israel’s population and 80% of its industrial base lie in an area nine miles wide at its narrowest between the “Green Line” and the Mediterranean sea.

If a Palestinian state was created in that region, Langfan asserts the Palestinians could easily smuggle in rockets – as has occurred in Gaza – and vividly demonstrated how the katyusha rockets currently being fired from Gaza possess a range that would reach every part of Israel’s population center.

Langfan, of “Americans for a Safe Israel”, has created these three-dimensional topographical map to explain the implications of strategic height and depth for Israel’s security.

In 2011 he won the “Justice Louis B. Brandeis Award” from the Zionist Organization of America, and in 2012 he received the “Shomer Yisrael” award from Bet El Yeshiva Center.

The show “The Watchman” debuted on CBN News on September 17, 2013. Langfan is scheduled to be back on next week with maps detailing the Iranian threat.

Other graphical presentations have also shown how a Palestinian state with no IDF presence in the Jordan valley presents indefensible security threats to Israel.

Why is Israel treated differently than the rest of the world?

These are the people who are gaining support from the world community.  Israel is condemned for responding to attacks on their own soil, and they are met with threats like this as well as lies.  The Israeli people do not want to kill the Palestinians they have never even initiated a conflict.  Yet people who don’t look for the facts continue to grow in numbers in calling Israelis criminals, and a genocidal people when NOT ONE ARAB COUNTRY IN THE MIDDLE EAST WILL GIVE THE PALESTINIANS REFUGE OR ANY CIVIL RIGHTS WHATSOEVER.  ISRAEL IS THE ONE COUNTRY IN THE MIDDLE EAST IN WHICH PALESTINIANS ARE ALLOWED TO BE A PART OF THE COMMUNITY, YES ITS HARDER FOR THEM, BUT AT LEAST THEY CAN VOTE, AND AS LONG AS THEY DON’T KILL ANYONE LIVE A PRETTY FREE LIFE.  THIS ISN’T TRUE ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE MIDDLE EAST AND THIS IS WHAT WE NEED TO TEACH PEOPLE.  Please help me spread the word, it has never been more crucial.  

 

 

 

 

Hamas’ plan for next war: Frequent attacks on Tel Aviv area (YNet News)

The Shalit prisoner exchange deal and last year’s war against Israel led to a spike in the popularity of Hamas, which also enjoyed the support of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. But the overthrow of Islamist President Mohamed Morsi by the Egyptian army plungedHamas into one of its most difficult periods in recent years, while the Palestinian Authority is credited with the release of Palestinian prisoners from Israeli jails. However, it is too soon to count Hamas out.

 

 

The Islamist group is building its strength in preparation for future conflicts with Israel. Its goal is to keep these wars as short as possible. Hamas’ military build-up includes amassing M-75 rockets, which have a range of 70 kilometers (43 miles) and can reach the Tel Aviv Metropolitan area. It is safe to assume that as opposed to last year’s conflict with Israel, during the next war the firing of medium-range rockets from Gaza will not be sporadic.

The next war between Israel and Hamas will be different. The Islamist group currently has only a number of M-75 rockets in its possession, but production is continuing at a fast pace. Hamas also has hundreds of anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles.

 

 

 

 

Gaza smuggling tunnel (Photo: AP)

 

While the Egyptian army has destroyed dozens of tunnels on the Egypt-Gaza border, most of them were used to smuggle petrol and construction material. It appears that the tunnels used to smuggle arms into Gaza sustained much less damage.

 

 

 

Relations between Hamas and the regime in Egypt remain tense, but Cairo is apparently not looking to overthrow the Hamas regime in Gaza. Instead, it will probably seek a “cold” peace with Gaza, similar to the peace that existed during former President Hosni Mubarak’s reign. Israel also believes that Hamas is preferable to an extremist Salafist regime in Gaza. The chances that the PA will regain control over the Strip remain slim.

 

Contrary to previous reports, it appears that Mohammed Deif heads Hamas’ military wing. Marwan Issa, who replaced Ahmed Jabari after the latter was killed by Israel, serves as Deif’s deputy.

 

 

Unlike Hamas, the PA enjoys broad international support and is engaged in serious peace talks with Israel. It remains unclear whether the sides will be able to reach an agreement on the core issues – such as Jerusalem and the refugees – but the talks have led to a dramatic breakthrough: Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas no longer rejects the possibility of reaching an interim deal with Israel, which may determine the borders with Israel and upgrade the PA’s status in the UN to a member state.
