Swedish news: Sharp increase in asylum seekers this year – about 80,000...
The more the merrier. I wonder how Jimmie Åkesson is relating to this new prognosis.
Day and night, the live camera is on at The Kotel the planet’s heart centre, recording history. (For some other people the earth’s centre is Mecca)
Who remembers the Island of Peace Massacre?
Reassuring: Tehillim – Psalm 126
In the meantime it’s Sheikh Abbas & Humperdinck of the West Bank vs. Mr. Goliath of Gaza. At this stage they are systematically taking out Goliath’s teeth, one by one. The whole operation will be over on 10th of August and then we can begin to pick up the broken pieces, – all of them:
“Broken lines, broken strings
Broken threads, broken springs
Broken idols, broken heads
People sleeping in broken beds
Ain’t no use jiving
Ain’t no use joking
Everything is broken
Broken bottles, broken plates
Broken switches, broken gates
Broken dishes, broken parts
Streets are filled with broken hearts
Broken words never meant to be spoken
Everything is broken
Seem like every time you stop and turn around
Something else just hit the ground
Broken cutters, broken saws
Broken buckles, broken laws
Broken bodies, broken bones
Broken voices on broken phones
Take a deep breath, feel like you’re chokin’
Everything is broken
Every time you leave and go off someplace
Things fall to pieces in my face
Broken hands on broken ploughs
Broken treaties, broken vows
Broken pipes, broken tools
People bending broken rules
Hound dog howling, bullfrog croaking
Everything is broken” (Bob Dylan : Everything is Broken)
Prior to the six day war in 1967, Gaza was being administered by Egypt and Judea and Samaria, the so called West Bank including the most sacred place for the Jewish people The Temple Mount was being administered by Jordan. But that was not enough for them, so they attacked Israel, because what they want is not just Gaza and “the West Bank”, they want the whole of Israel which they would like to transform into the 23rd Arab state in the region.
One more thing is certain: If Mohamed Morsi had still been in power, then Israel would have thought more than twice before embarking on the ground offensive. It’s different with El-Sisi as the new pharaoh…
It’s a very unequal story: The Jews and the Arabs, the great children of Abraham, are locked in mortal combat. History marches on, prophecy is being fulfilled and it shall all come to pass. The prize is much bigger than the rectangular sliver of land, once only sand that’s Gaza, the scene of the latest battle. Some say the scene of the latest crime.
This gentleman’s lamentation is “Sharon Promised Me 40 Years’ Quiet”
A question that anyone has a right to ask : How did Gaza become a terrorist missile base? It was possible because Ariel Sharon unilaterally evacuated all the 5,000 Jews who lived in Gaza – to the last man, woman and child. And then what happened? Gaza became a terrorist missile base – in spite of “the blockade”.
And that’s exactly what happened.
For that reason there is talk that the only solution to Hamas terror is either de-militarisation or re-occupation…to prevent Hamas from acquiring ballistic missiles – especially should they improve their friendship with Iran who in the future might also decide that it’s time they had their own nuclear weapons.
Can you imagine what life would be like if Benjamin Netanyahu were to unilaterally declare that all the so called settlers should leave Judea and Samaria? And after that Hamas (God forbid) were to wrest power from their unity government partner, Mahmoud Abbas, the chairman of Fatah and the West Bank? In no time at all the so called West Bank would become a hundred times worse as a terrorist missile base. Just ask Hamas what they would do if they had power and ruled in Judea and Samaria, the so called “West Bank”.
Once upon a time the terrorists used to bleed Israel and then point to the Golan Heights. Used to bleed Israel and then point at the Bekaa Valley area in Southern Lebanon (Hezbollah stronghold)
So Israel left Southern Lebanon – the buffer zone – and then what happened? The Hezbollah-Israel war of 2006 and more hate mail – after the Hezbollah guerrillas/ gorillas (chimps) killed eight Israeli soldiers and kidnapped another two Israeli soldiers that were patrolling on the Israel side of the border. There were interminable linguistic disputes as to whether kidnapped or “captured” should be the appropriate word, since the captives were all military men. In a war, “You sneak behind enemy lines and capture an enemy soldier…”
A dreamer of dreams told me that when the Messiah comes, he will take the hand of Israel’s chief Rabbi and the hand of the chief Mufti of Saudi Arabia and ask them , “ Children of Abraham, why are you still fighting? “ – and thus start the new millennium when righteousness and knowledge of God shall cover the earth as water covers the sea…
“To the last drop of blood.” Easier said than done.
The peace and tranquillity that was missing in Gaza this Ramadan will be over on Sunday. What was missing in tranquillity in the Middle East neighbourhood will be overcompensated by more wilful actions, the sounds of the sirens and “the whistling of bullets, the sound of bombs and missiles exploding for the sake of Allah !” Not for the sake of they themselves (their terrorist selves) but (Robert Spencer take note) , the man says it’s “For the sake of Allah” – and who are you to tell him that everything that he’s doing is not for the sake of Allah ?
And therefore – as if by divine command for the satisfaction and glory of Allah sub han t’ala the whole world is witnessing more and more Hamas missile-fire upon innocent Israeli citizens. Do you think this is OK?
In their Al Qassam website they claim to have only fired 43 missiles on Israeli military bases, so far – what with about 8,500 more rockets remaining unused, not yet in use but reserved for future use, maintaining their current rate of constant fire,their missile supplies can last another six weeks, at least through the month of Shawwal – unless the IDF destroys them, in order to protect Israel’s legal population…
Still in Gaza: You see a warning signal flash on your roof and if you’re still in the building, you know that it’s time for you to become a nervous wreck
All in one day and well before midnight:
U.N. shelter in Gaza hit, 16 dead, 200 wounded It’s not sure who fired on the shelter, the IDF or some misguided Hamas racket fire. It’s being investigated
Of course it’s easier to pinpoint a much larger target such as a house than it is to pinpoint a rocket launching ramp when returning fire. The question is, should the IDF not return fire when the enemy fire comes from a source in one of the densely populated arms depots and launching pads in Gaza?
Then, how to stop the Hamas missiles? Only by the iron dome?
