Hamas, Gaza

There are still 134 hostages in Gaza. Hamas needs to understand that there will be no peace until the hostages have been returned home.

As part of the preparation for the invasion of Rafah in southernmost Gaza, Head of Shin Bet Ronen Bar and Israel Defense Forces (IDF) Chief of Staff Herzi Halevi visited Cairo. The Egyptian government has been concerned that military action in Rafah will push Palestinians into their country.

In other words, the Egyptian Arabs want to make sure that none of the Palestinian Arabs cross the border. Why? Because they know the Palestinians and recognize that they bring trouble with them wherever they go. Former Jordanian King Hussein understood that truth and used his military to drive out all the militant Palestinian factions from his country. Bar and Halevi reassured the Cairo government that they needn’t be concerned.

Israeli citizens were once again reminded how dangerous tunnel warfare is when they were informed of the deaths of 25-year-old Maj. Iftah Shahar and 24-year-old Cpt. Itai Seif. A booby-trapped tunnel shaft exploded in Gaza killing the two officers and wounding ten more soldiers. Never before in the history of warfare has a military been forced to conduct simultaneous above and below ground operations in the manner necessary in Gaza.

It seems that everyone in the world is desperate for a ceasefire, except Hamas and Israel. Excitement for a ceasefire began to stir again this past week, leading Joe Biden to postulate that a deal could be signed as soon as Monday. But two days ago, Hamas said, “No way!” The two most disappointed by this are Biden, who needs peace in the Middle East before the elections, and the Gazan people, who are seeing prices for necessities skyrocket as Hamas steals goods and relief supplies for themselves.

 

 

Gaza Stampede
The latest ‘blame Israel’ fiasco just happened, after the deadly stampede in Gaza. Aerial footage released by the IDF shows thousands of Gazans rushing towards aid trucks after they passed an IDF checkpoint. As the crowds thronged towards the trucks loaded with food and supplies, hundreds of Gazans were caught in the stampede and were crushed.

 

‘Massacre’ Blamed on Israel… of Course!

 

Israel shared footage of IDF soldiers trying to disperse the crowds and adamantly denied responsibility for the deaths. Hamas blamed Israel for the ‘massacre’ of over 100 Palestinians and, as expected, Israel was condemned around the world.

France said “fire by Israeli soldiers against civilians trying to access food” was “unjustifiable,” and the “tragic event” came as an “increasing number of Palestinian civilians” are suffering from hunger and disease.

President Biden called the incident “tremendously alarming” and said the US is investigating “competing versions” of events, seemingly equating the legitimacy of the version presented by Israel with that of Hamas. Typical Biden playing both sides!

And we know very well that the mainstream media is not interested in reporting the truth, only in promoting the false Palestinian narrative. Hypocrisy, downright lies and modern day blood libels run rampant when it comes to Israel and the Jewish people.

 

Hezbollah, Northern Front

 

The back and forth between Hezbollah and Israel in the north continues. A heavy barrage earlier this week consisting of 40 rockets was launched toward northeastern Galilee and Kiryat Shmona. Most were intercepted or fell in unpopulated areas. However, one rocket landed on the roof of a three-story building but caused no casualties.

Two days prior, on Monday, IDF aircraft targeted a car driven by Hassan Hossein Salami, killing the man. The senior Hezbollah commander, who was in charge of the Hajir Sector, oversaw a number of terrorist plots carried out against IDF forces and Israeli civilians.

A building near Damascus used as headquarters for pro-Iranian militias was destroyed in an Israeli strike Wednesday night. Very powerful bombs dropped by IAF planes decimated the structure in the Saida Zeinab area, while a Syrian army facility in the south Damascus village of Hajira was also blown apart. Reports of casualties began to filter out as the fires burned late into the night.

 

Houthis

 

Last Tuesday, the Rubymar, a Belize-flagged cargo ship carrying fertilizer from the UAE to Belarus, was hit by a Houthi anti-ship missile while in the Red Sea. The resulting 18-mile oil slick became a natural disaster. The ship is now sinking. Before a senate subcommittee, US Special Envoy for Yemen Tim Lenderking testified that Iran was “equipping and facilitating” the Houthis in their attacks. The Houthis are just another of Iran’s proxy militias, just a little better funded and a lot more crazy. Last Saturday, the U.S. and U.K. launched dozens of strikes against the terrorist group, targeting infrastructure and weapons.

The Houthis are targeting more than just ships. In the past months, four underwater communications cables are alleged to have been knocked out of working order. The cables, which run between Saudi Arabia and Djibouti, are a key link between Europe, Asia, and Africa. Repairs could take up to eight weeks.

 

Abraham Accords

 

Ties between Israel and Saudi Arabia are growing stronger. But for the relationship to progress, it has to be done quietly. On Monday at the World Trade Organization’s ministerial conference in Abu Dhabi, Israeli Economy Minister Nir Barkat approached Saudi Arabia’s Commerce Minister Majid bin Abdullah Al-Qasabi. The two shook hands and Barkat told his counterpart, “Israel is interested in peace with countries that seek peace, and we can make history together.” It was a cordial meeting. Unfortunately, it was recorded, and the video quickly went viral. Before you knew it, the Saudi government issued a statement saying that Qasabi was busy, talking to the Nigerian minister when “an unknown individual approached the minister to offer greetings.” Only later did he identify himself as a member of the “Israeli occupation government.” In the Middle East, appearance is everything.
