Shin Bet voorkomt zelfmoordaanslag in Tel Aviv


Er worden nog regelmatig Palestijnse bomaanslagen in Israel voorkomen door de veiligheidsdiensten. Deze halen vrijwel nooit het nieuws.





Shin Bet thwarts terror cell planning Tel Aviv suicide bombing

Security forces arrested several Palestinians during October and November on suspicion of planning to carry out a suicide bombing attack in the Tel Aviv region, the Shin Bet announced on Monday.

The suspects include a woman from Jenin, named by security forces as Yasmin Sha’aban, and four residents of the Tulkarm area.

“According to the plot that was hatched, Sha’aban was the designated suicide bomber. She was supposed to carry out the attack with an explosive vest hidden in her clothes while disguised as a pregnant Jewish woman,” the Shin Bet said.

Sha’aban had intended on receiving an entry permit into Israel for medical reasons, and exploit it to carry out a mass casualty bombing of Israeli civilians.

The suspects have confessed to planning the suicide bombing and other terrorist attacks, the Shin Bet said. The suspected bombers were in touch with an operative from Gaza, who helped instruct them on how to assemble explosives, according to the investigation.

Following the arrests, security forces seized a homemade semi-automatic rifle, a hunting rifle, ammunition, and explosives.

The suspects intended to stay in an apartment in Israel used by illegal residents as part of their preparations, the Shin Bet added. There the Palestinian woman was meant to put on her explosives vest and head to the Tel Aviv area.

Hamas and Islamic Jihad planned to claim joint responsibility for the attack, according to the investigation.

However, there is no evidence that the central leaderships of Hamas or Islamic Jihad in Gaza were aware of this particular plot.

The suspects also confessed to planning to bomb a bus carrying soldiers and to kidnap a soldier.

Sha’aban and another suspect have been charged at the Samaria District Court with terrorism offenses.

The arrests underline “the high motivation that exists among terrorist operatives to carry out attacks, with an emphasis on the period after Operation Pillar of Defense,” the Shin Bet said.

The incident also pours light on how Gazan terrorist organizations seek to orchestrate attacks out of Samaria, and how they help would-be terrorists arm themselves and plan attacks.



Palestijnen beschuldigen Hamas van gebruik menselijke schilden tijdens Gaza oorlog


Hieronder staan een aantal uitspraken van Palestijnen over de Gaza oorlog, die een tegenovergesteld beeld geven als dat wat er uit de media naar voren kwam. Niet Israel, maar Hamas was in hoofdzaak verantwoordelijk voor de doden. Hamas dwong mensen in hun huizen te blijven nadat Israel ze had gewaarschuwd om te vertrekken. Hamas schoot tientallen mensen dood die tegen haar bestuur demonstreerden tijdens de Gaza oorlog. En Hamas schoot op mensen die wegrenden. Hoe betrouwbaar de citaten zijn kan ik niet beoordelen. Het is echter geen geheim dat Hamas hard optreedt tegen wat het ziet als politieke tegenstanders, en de Gaza oorlog als een mooie dekmantel zag om van deze mensen af te komen.

"There were two major protests against Hamas during the third week of the war. When Hamas fighters opened fire at the protesters in the Bait Hanoun area and the Shijaiya, five were killed instantly. I saw that with my own eyes. Many were injured. A doctor at Shifa hospital told me that 35 were killed at both protests. He went and saw their bodies at the morgue."




Palestinians Reveal the Truth about Gaza:

'Hamas Wanted Us Butchered So It Could Win the Media War Against Israel'


                                    25 Sep 2014  

Now that the smoke has cleared from the recent Israel/Gaza conflict the truth of what really happened is finally beginning to emerge. Hamas - the terrorist regime which controls Gaza - does not come out of it well.


"If Hamas does not like you for any reason all they have to do now is say you are a Mossad agent and kill you." — A., a Fatah member in Gaza.

"Hamas wanted us butchered so it could win the media war against Israel showing our dead children on TV and then get money from Qatar." — T., former Hamas Ministry officer.

"They would fire rockets and then run away quickly, leaving us to face Israeli bombs for what they did." — D., Gazan journalist.

"Hamas imposed a curfew: anyone walking out in the street was shot. That way people had to stay in their homes, even if they were about to get bombed. Hamas held the whole Gazan population as a human shield." — K., graduate student

"The Israeli army allows supplies to come in and Hamas steals them. It seems even the Israelis care for us more than Hamas." — E., first-aid volunteer.

"We are under Hamas occupation, and if you ask most of us, we would rather be under Israeli occupation… We miss the days when we were able to work inside Israel and make good money. We miss the security and calm Israel provided when it was here." — S., graduate of an American university, former Hamas sympathizer.

These quotes were collected by Mudar Zarhan, a Jordanian-Palestinian writer and activist at the Gatestone Institute, who used his contacts in the West Bank to secure secret interviews with friends and family members in Gaza. All spoke anonymously because of the understandable fear that if their identities were revealed they would face execution by the ruthless Hamas regime.

What the interviews show is that many of the deaths attributed to Israel during the conflict were in fact caused directly or indirectly by Hamas.

Some were opponents of the regime - often Fatah members - who were shot as "Israeli spies" pour encourager les autres. One - Ayman Taha - was a senior Hamas leader murdered by his own side but supposedly martyred, according to Hamas press release by Israeli air strikes. Others were killed while demonstrating against Hamas on the streets.

According to D, a store owner:

"There were two major protests against Hamas during the third week of the war. When Hamas fighters opened fire at the protesters in the Bait Hanoun area and the Shijaiya, five were killed instantly. I saw that with my own eyes. Many were injured. A doctor at Shifa hospital told me that 35 were killed at both protests. He went and saw their bodies at the morgue."

Many more deaths were caused by Hamas's refusal to allow Gazans to take shelter from Israeli attacks.

S., a medical worker, told Zarhan:

"The Israeli army sends warnings to people [Gazans] to evacuate buildings before an attack. The Israelis either call or send a text message. Sometimes they call several times to make sure everyone has been evacuated. Hamas's strict policy, though, was not to allow us to evacuate. Many people got killed, locked inside their homes by Hamas militants. Hamas's official Al-Quds TV regularly issued warnings to Gazans not to evacuate their homes. Hamas militants would block the exits to the places residents were asked to evacuate. In the Shijaiya area, people received warnings from the Israelis and tried to evacuate the area, but Hamas militants blocked the exits and ordered people to return to their homes. Some of the people had no choice but to run towards the Israelis and ask for protection for their families. Hamas shot some of those people as they were running; the rest were forced to return to their homes and get bombed. This is how the Shijaiya massacre happened. More than 100 people were killed."

The interviews provide a version of events which could scarcely be more different from the one promulgated by most of the world's mainstream media during Operation Protective Edge, where the Israeli assault was presented as brutal, indiscriminate and almost entirely unjustified.

Israel's claims that it was doing everything possible to avoid civilian casualties went largely unreported. So too did the Hamas weapons caches under mosques, the rockets fired from hospitals and the vast network of tunnels built to facilitate a planned cross-border spectacular - timed for the Jewish New Year which began yesterday - whereby Hamas terrorists planned to kill or kidnap as many Israelis as possible.

Partly this was the result of reporting restrictions. All journalists operating from inside Gaza were aware that if they failed to toe the Hamas line they would be immediately expelled - or worse.

But the bias was mainly ideological. Many of the media organisations reporting on Gaza - from the BBC and Channel 4 News to the New York Times - were predisposed to the idea that the Palestinians were the innocent victims of an Israeli overreaction to a few harmless missiles lobbed over the border by an oppressed and desperate people at the end of their tether.

It was as a result of the political outcry created by media reports of weeping mothers and dead babies that Israel - as usual in these bi-annual wars - was forced to withdraw prematurely before it could fully protect its citizens' interests by destroying Hamas's military infrastructure.



Hamas verbrandt symbolisch religieuze Jood en Joodse Tempel


Nog eentje vanwege de opmerkelijke uitspraak van het Europese Hof over Hamas.

Ook hier laat Hamas zich niet van haar vreedzame kant zien.




Hamas burns a religious Jew - and the Temple - in effigy during rally (update)


Today Hamas held a rally in Gaza City celebrating its anniversary.

Here was one of the featured events:




The "coffin" that he is being burned on has a picture on the side:

It is a representation of the Second Jewish Temple!

Nah, they're not antisemitic. They are pretending to murder religious Jews and destroy Jewish holy places because of, you know, settlements.

Maybe next rally they can burn a fake Torah, too. Even if they did, enlightened Westerners will not admit that Hamas has anything to do with Jew-hatred.

UPDATE: Coffins had different "decorations" including this celebration of murdering 4 religious Jews. (h/t Bob Knot)




Hamas woordvoerder roept op met auto's en messen Joden aan te vallen

Voor velen is dit geen nieuws natuurlijk, maar in het kader van de beslissing van het Europese hof dat Hamas voorlopig van de lijst van terroristische organisaties moet, is het wel goed weer even helder te hebben om wat voor club het eigenlijk gaat. Wat Hamas hier predikt brengt men zelf ook in praktijk, althans, dat probeert men. De meeste aanslagen en raketten worden verijdeld, maar aan de wil om meer Joden te doden ontbreekt het niet. Ik hoop dat de EU snel met de benodigde onderbouwing komt om Hamas weer op de terreurlijst geplaatst te krijgen.
Hamas Spokesman Fawzi Barhoum Calls to Carry Out Terror Attacks in Israel and the West Bank
In a July 30, 2014 interview with the Lebanese Al-Quds TV channel, Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum called upon Israeli Arabs and Palestinians in the West Bank to wage attacks "to avenge the blood of Gaza" and said: "The Palestinian people has no choice but to wage this battle in Gaza, in the West Bank, in Jerusalem, and in all the cities of occupied Palestine."
Following are excerpts:
Fawzi Barhoum: Let me say, loud and clear, to our people in the West Bank: Don't you have cars? Don't you have motorcycles? Don't you have knives? Don't you have clubs? Don't you have bulldozers? Don't you have trucks? Anyone who has a knife, a club, a weapon, or a car, yet does not use it to run over a Jew or a settler, and does not use it to kill dozens of Zionists, does not belong to Palestine.
Palestine says loud and clear: Real men are those who avenge the blood of Gaza. Real men are those who avenge the blood of the Gaza Strip. Real men will not sleep until they have avenged the blood of Gaza.
To our people within the Green Line, we say: It is time for you to declare a new phase in this struggle. Political and social considerations are worthless. Blood and martyrdom are the only considerations that matter. The Palestinian people has no choice but to wage this battle in Gaza, in the West Bank, in Jerusalem, and in all the cities of occupied Palestine.

Hamas van terreurlijst Europa

Europa houdt meer van eigen regels dan van realiteit.

Het Hof van Justitie van de Europese Unie heeft vandaag bepaald dat de Palestijnse organisatie Hamas van de Europese terreurlijst wordt verwijderd. De maatregelen tegen Hamas, zoals het bevriezen van financiƫle tegoeden, blijven wel van kracht. Hamas wordt om procedurele redenen van de lijst met terreurorganisaties gehaald. Het Europese Hof van Justitie oordeelde dat de plaatsing op de lijst gebaseerd is op berichten in de media en op internet en niet op 'daden onderzocht en bevestigd door de juiste autoriteiten'.

Die laatste zin geeft precies aan waar de schoen altijd wringt. Als Israel misdaden van Hamas meldt wordt dat niet serieus genomen. Israel is zo genaamd partijdig en dus onoordeelkundig in de ogen van Europa. Israel heeft natuurlijk tal van bewijzen voor terreur van Hamas. Om maar een paar te noemen. In 2007 werden Fatahleden uit Gaza zwaar verminkt op de grens van Gaza en Israel neergelegd. In Israelische ziekenhuizen werden deze mensen opgelapt. Israel kon er niet te veel ruchtbaarheid aan geven, want dan liepen de familieleden van deze Fatahmensen in Gaza gevaar. Laat staan dat reporters of onderzoekers van een NGO deze mensen konden bezoeken. Fatahmensen werden tijdens de machtsovername door Hamas in Gaza standrechtelijk doodgeschoten, van daken gegooid, gevangen gezet en gemarteld. Daar kwam natuurlijk nauwelijks iets van in de Europese media, terwijl journalisten wel getuigen waren van deze daden. Het aantal raketten dat al sinds jaar en dag vanuit Gaza op Israel wordt afgevuurd nadert eerder de 100.000 dan minder. Die raketten worden op burgerdoelen gericht in Israel. Dat wordt nog wel eens gemeld in de media. Het zijn echte terreurdaden en er zijn talloze niet-Israelische getuigenissen van. Terreuraanslagen vanuit Gaza worden gelukkig vaak net op tijd ontdekt en zo voorkomen, maar de terreurtunnels zijn zelfs wel eens in onze media vermeld. Journalisten zijn er in geweest. Tijdens de laatste oorlog zijn er diverse bewijzen van terreurhandelingen van Hamas gekomen. Maar waarom staat er: de daden van Hamas zijn niet onderzocht? Dat is vrij eenvoudig. Zowel alle VN-onderzoeken als Amnesty-rapporten als Human Rights Watch mededelingen zijn UITSLUITEND gebaseerd op mogelijke misdaden van Israel en nooit op misdaden van Hamas. De opdracht van de VN Mensenrechtenraad in Gaza is de volgende:. the mandate holder must investigate only Israel’s human rights violations. Investigating Palestinians is off limits. Dat is dus duidelijk, de Hamasmisdaden worden gewoon verdonkeremaand. En Europa draait gewoon zijn hoofd om zolang het om Palestijnen gaat. Overigens alleen Palestijnen die met Israel te maken hebben. Andere Palestijnen, in de Arabische landen, zijn gewoon vluchtelingen als de Syriers, de Irakezen en anderen. Geen extra aandacht van wie dan ook. Zelfs niet van UNRWA. Het is tamelijk verontrustend dat wij allemaal deel uit maken van dit hypocriete Europa en onze regeringen en NGO`s, en zelfs kerken hoog van de toren blazen met uitspraken van Internationaal Recht. Dat Recht wordt aan alle kanten gemanipuleerd of verkracht of opzij geschoven. Arme wereld. De gevolgen kunnen niet uitblijven.
