  • GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — Police in Hamas-ruled Gaza have started grabbing young men with long or gel-styled spiky hair off the streets, bundling them into jeeps, mocking them and shaving their heads, two of those targeted and a rights group said Sunday.

    It is the latest sign that the Islamic militants are imposing their strict practices on the population.

    Hamas has been slowly forcing its fundamentalist interpretation of the religion on already conservative Gaza since it overran the territory in 2007, but the new crackdown on long hair and tight or low-waist pants — in several cases accompanied by beatings — appears to be one of the most aggressive phases of the campaign so far.

Hamas Threatens US with War

H/T EDL Buck

Center for Security Policy:

The Palestinian jihadist terrorist organization Hamas has threatened to declare war on the US should President Barack Obama visits the Temple Mount during his trip to Israel:

Hamas is warning that if President Obama visits the Temple Mount it would be a “declaration of war” against the Islamic world.

Israel National News reports the terror group made the threat during a protest march at the religious site following riots on Friday.

Mushir al-Masri, a Hamas spokesman, called for a third intifada if Obama visits the contested religious site in Jerusalem’s Old City between Israelis and Muslims.

There are a few aspects of this threat worth noting:

  1. Obama wasn’t ever going to visit the Temple Mount anyway, so this is HAMAS trying to get a propaganda victory in the Islamic world by claiming that their warning kept him away. It’s not often that a US president gets used in such a way.

    It was nearly 10 years ago when Steve Averbach, a New Jersey-born Israeli police officer, realized a fellow passenger on a Jerusalem bus was a suicide bomber disguised as an Orthodox Jew and made a decision that saved potentially dozens of lives — and changed his forever.

    Averbach drew his gun, but before he had the chance to shoot the man exploded his bomb, killing seven people and injuring 20 more. The then 37-year-old father of four had prevented the Hamas-linked bomber from getting to the densely populated city center where the body count would almost certainly have been much higher. But Averbach was left a quadriplegic, and died in June 2010, having suffered deteriorating health as a result of his injuries.

Feinstein: Actions of Hamas ‘border on being an international war crime’

On Tuesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight,” Democratic Senate intelligence committee chairwoman Dianne Feinstein reaffirmed her support of Israel and came close to accusing Hamas of war crimes.

“I hope people see Hamas for what it is, and that is using their own people as human shields,” Feinstein said. “Putting these missiles and rockets in places right in the middle of residential areas, in homes and mosques and parks — you don’t do this. I mean, this borders on being an international war crime. Now the problem is, Hamas isn’t a member of either of the organizations — the Geneva Conventions or others that would hold this as a war crime. So, it’s a very difficult situation. Our solidarity has to be with Israel. This is a point where Israel has been under attack for a long period of time, and nothing has solved it.”

Feinstein went on to emphasize the importance of a two-state solution, and praised Palestine Liberation Organization head Mahmoud Abbas.

MUSLIM TERRORISTS (PALESTINIANS) TARGET BUS IN TEL AVIV ISRAEL…….

 

Hamas ”welcomes” the carnage……

Blast on bus in heart of Tel Aviv

Loud blast heard near Kirya base in heart of Tel Aviv. Seventeen people injured; two sustain moderate to serious injuries, three sustain moderate injuries, the rest lightly wounded

Ynet reporters

A loud blast was reported on a bus in the Shaul Hamelech street in the heart of Tel Aviv near the Kirya base. Rescue forces reported of a mass casualty event. Defense sources said it was a terror attack.

Seventeen people were injured; two sustained moderate to serious injuries, three sustained moderate wounds and the rest were lightly wounded. One woman suffered shock.

The wounded were evacuated to the Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center. A security source estimated that an explosive device was planted on the bus. Police suspect there may be another explosive device in the area and examine estimations that a terrorist hurled a grenade at the bus and fled the scene.

An eye witness at the scene said: “I heard a boom and then saw a black cloud. Guys in the cab radio said ‘A bus is dismantled.'”

Eye witnesses near the Kirya reported that the base speakers called all soldiers to take cover. Many police cars arrived at the area.

 

TURK PM VOWS SUPPORT FOR HAMAS

Turkish prime minister vows in speech in Cairo support for Palestinians in Gaza

CAIRO – Turkey’s prime minister has vowed support for Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.
Recep Tayyip Erdogan described Egypt’s uprising that ousted longtime autocratic leader Hosni Mubarak from power last year as a point of hope for Palestinians. The Turkish leader delivered his remarks in a speech at Cairo University Saturday.

He also met President Mohammed Morsi in Cairo for the first time since the Egyptian Islamist leader was elected late June.

The Turkish leader is in Egypt with a delegation of 12 ministers and 350 businessmen.
Meanwhile, hundreds of people protested outside the Arab League headquarters in Cairo, where Arab foreign ministers are meeting to discuss Israel’s expanded fierce air assault on rocket operations in Gaza, which is run by the Islamic militant Hamas group.

Hamas’ armed wing claims to have shelled “the occupied city of Tel Aviv”. If true, this will have been the first Hamas missile to hit Israel’s largest city. Israel has denied the claim, slamming it as propaganda.

­As soon as the first reports appeared on popular microblogging site Twitter, Tel Aviv began trending worldwide.

The the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades tweeted the claim, but so far, no confirmation is available.

Meanwhile, Israeli Defense Forces spokesperson Avital Leibovich took to her Twitter account to slam the claim as propaganda. She said “Clarification: no rockets were fired toTel Aviv. The rumors are part of Hamas propaganda.”

Hamas: No Compromises With Israel on Anything, Ever

Hamas reiterated its mantra – no compromise on any issue with Israel, until the ‘last inch of Palestine is liberated

Flash 90

In response to statements by Palestinian Authority chief Mahmoud Abbas that he would not demand the “right of return” for PA Arabs to the homes that their grandparents and great-grandparents abandoned in the State of Israel – statements Abbas later reneged on – Hamas has issued its own document on the matter. Even if the PA as a matter of policy were to agree not to demand that nearly all the Jews of Israel be thrown out of their homes to accommodate the descendants of “refugees,” Hamas said it wold never agree to such a plan – and any concessions Israel makes in return for the removal of the “right of return” from PA demands would be irrelevant, as far as the Gaza terror group was concerned.

Two rockets explode near Sderot, followed by another rocket in Netivot; No injuries or damage reported in either incident

Attack on the south continues: Three Qassam rockets exploded Tuesday, two near Sderot and one in the town of Netivot. In both cases, the rockets hit open areas and no injuries or damage were reported.

Against the backdrop of political unease, in light of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu‘s Tuesday announcement that the elections for the Knesset will be held earlier than expected, Sderot Mayor David Buskila commented: “Israel is heading toward election when there are still unresolved defense issues.”

Related stories:

“The continuous rocket fire towards Israel indicates that something has happened to our ability to deter,” Buskila continued. “We shouldn’t let those who threaten us determine the agenda. At the moment, they’re the ones who decide that we won’t get any sleep at night, when we will wake up, or when we will run to the shelters – and we have no say in the matter.

“I think that when it comes to this threat, it would be best if the current government would hold office for one more year, until the end of its term, so that it would be able to address those issues and find a solution.”
