Ledaren för Islamsk Jihad dödad - 200 raketer mot Israel i dag

Israel dödade ledaren för Islamsk Jihad i Gaza tidigt i dag på morgonen. Efter attacken har Islamsk Jihad skjutit omkring 200 raketer mot israeliska städer.
Israel besvarade inte raketbeskjutningen under de första sex timmarna men har nu bombat flera terroristmål i Gaza.
Närmare 50 personer i Israel har skadats i samband med raketbeskjutningen men endast ett fåtal som en direkt följd av raketerna. De materiella skadorna har även varit betydande.
Skolorna i flera israeliska städer kommer att vara stängda i morgon eftersom man fruktar att raketbeskjutningen kommer att fortsätta.
USA och EU har fördömt raketbeskjutningen mot civila mål.
Oppositionsledaren Benny Gantz säger att han stöder regeringens beslut att döda Abu al-Ata, ledaren för Islamsk Jihad. Islamsk Jihad var ansvarig för största delen av raketbeskjutningen mot Israel under de senaste månaderna och flera attacker var under planering.

Kristallnatten - en påminnelse om vart dagens antisemitism kan leda

Årsdagen av Kristallnatten 9-10 november 1938 bör bli en påminnelse om vart antisemitism kan leda. Det hat som byggs upp mot judarna genom lögner och bojkotter behöver bara en gnista för att stora delar av befolkningen skall bli redo att ta till våld eller åtminstone understöda våld mot judarna.
Det är vad som hände 1938 och det kan tyvärr hända igen.

KRISTALLNACHT: THE SHATTERING OF ILLUSION (Jerusalem Post)
"If the Holocaust represents the darkest night in all of Jewish – if not human – history, as Elie Wiesel famously wrote, then the events of November 9-10, 1938 may very well be the very darkest night of the Shoah. In what would later come to be known as Kristallnacht – the Night of Broken Glass – the pent-up barbarism and antisemitic mania of the German nation exploded in unparalleled fury and destruction.

On the pretense of the assassination of German diplomat Ernst vom Rath by Herschel Grynspan, a Polish-German Jew whose parents had been brutalized, Nazi SA storm-troopers and Hitler Youth rampaged throughout Germany, Austria and the Sudetenland, destroying everything Jewish in their path. Some 1,500 synagogues and study halls were looted, desecrated and burned; more than 7,000 Jewish businesses were damaged or destroyed; hundreds of Jewish cemeteries and thousands of graves were defiled. 30,000 Jewish men were sent to the concentration camps of Dachau, Buchenwald and Sachsenhausen, many never to return, and as many as 700 Jews were murdered on the spot...

...If there is anything positive to be gleaned from the horrendous legacy of Kristallnacht – and all that was to follow – it is the imperative to take antisemitism seriously, for it is deadly serious. What begins as “benign prejudice” – slanderous words of hate and mere threats – can quickly morph into very real acts of violence. Society can rapidly fall victim to charismatic demagogues, adopting a mob mentality that defies both logic and cultural norms...."

Dödskulten i det palestinska samhället

De palestinska "martyrerna" (terrorister som dödats) är unika eftersom deras död firas som deras bröllop, sägs det på palestinsk TV.

PMW:

Why is Martyrdom-death “unique in Palestine”?

Nan Jacques Zilberdik  | 
"Martyrdom in Palestine is unique. We are the only ones who celebrate the news of a Martyr's wedding," says host on official PA TV
Death as a "Martyr" for Allah and for "Palestine" - during terror attacks and other violent confrontations with Israel - has been promoted as an ideal by the Palestinian Authority for years, as documented by Palestinian Media Watch.
The elevated status "Martyrs" enjoy in the PA was recently stressed by a host on official PA TV, who bragged that "Martyrdom in Palestine is unique," because a Martyr's funeral is considered "a wedding." A mother of a "Martyr" present in the TV studio expressed her opinion that death as a Martyr is "an honor":
Official PA TV host: "Praise Allah, I want to say that this Martyrdom always is-"
Mother of a "Martyr": "An honor."
Official PA TV host: "Exactly! Martyrdom in Palestine is unique. We are the only ones who celebrate the news of a Martyr's wedding."
[Official PA TV, Palestine This Morning, Aug. 27, 2019]
A Martyr's funeral is considered a wedding to the 72 Virgins in Paradise in Islam.
These expressions of support for dying as a "Martyr" come as no surprise. PMW has documented numerous mothers and fathers who have expressed joy when their terrorist children died as "Martyrs." This is what the PA has taught them and what is expected of them. The following are examples of mothers praising their dead children's Martyrdom, collected in one video (additional texts below):

Kvinnor i majoritet inom vissa enheter i IDF

Inom gränspolisen är 65 % kvinnor, också inom luftförsvaret är majoriteten kvinnor.Det har de senaste åren skett en markant ökning i antalet kvinnor som vill med i stridande förband.

IDF INCREASES NUMBER OF FEMALE COMBAT SOLDIERS IN CO-ED UNITS
"...The IDF data, published today for the first time, showed that female soldiers now make up two-thirds (65%) of the Border Police, as opposed to just over half (55%) previously.

Even in the Home Front Command Rescue Battalions, which also carry out regular security missions in the Judea and Samaria area, there has been a significant change. If until recently, the proportion was 50/50, it now stands at 60% female fighters compared to 40% male. The same trend is recorded in air defense, within its various units – men used to make up 55% of the forces compared to 45% made up by women; the situation is now reversed.

The IDF pointed out that there has been a dramatic increase in the number of young women who want to serve as combat soldiers. While co-ed battalions like Caracal used to be considered an exception, the situation today is different and the IDF’s current need for female fighters is described as a critical operational need..."

Raketattack mot Israel under fredagskvällen

Under fredagskvällen när familjerna i staden Sderot nära Gazagränsen var samlade till sabbatsmåltid sköt terrorister från Gaza 10 raketer mot Israel. En raket träffade ett bostadshus i Sderot som fick allvarliga skador, invånarna klarade sig eftersom de hunnit ta sig till skyddsrummet.Åtta raketer sköts ner av Israel.
Israel svarade med att bomba olika mål som tillhörde terrororganisationerna i Gaza.
Hamas med sin underliga logik anklagade Israel för upptrappningen och hotade med att Israel får bära konsekvenserna.
Men det är inte bara Hamas som har en underlig logik, finska Yle:s text TV hade en rubrik där man kunde läsa att det utförts lufträder mot Gaza. Som vanligt vände man på ordningsföljden och Israels svar på raketbeskjutningen blev rubrik. Det i sin tur betyder att de som bara skummar genom rubrikerna fick läsa om ytterligare en israelisk aggression.
Premiärminister Netanyahus politiska motståndare anklagar Netanyahu för att han inte slagit till tillräckligt hårt mot terroristorganisationerna i Gaza och därmed uppmuntrat dem att fortsätta med beskjutningen som pågått i åratal.

Arabstaterna binder sig till den gamla tvåstatslösningen - USA vill pröva något nytt

De arabiska nationerna har ännu en gång inför FN:s säkerhetsråd klargjort att de anser att en tvåstatslösning som följer "gränsen" från 1967 (vapenstilleståndslinjen från 1949) med Jerusalem som palestiniernas huvudstad är den enda möjliga lösningen på konflikten mellan Israel och palestinierna. Detta trots att konceptet visat sig vara ogenomförbart under tiotals år.

Arabstaterna tror antagligen på sin egen propaganda som har spridits över världen i tiotals år, så de inser knappast att det i verkligheten inte finns några fakta som talar för deras åsikt, tvärtom.

Det finns inga historiska fakta som gör att palestinierna borde få hela västbanken (Judéen och Samarien), däremot finns det väldokumenterade fakta som bevisar att området är judarnas historiska hemland.

Det finns inga juridiska dokument som säger att området borde tillhöra palestinierna, inte ens bindande FN beslut. Däremot finns det juridiska dokument som säger att området skall tillhöra judarna, bl.a. San Remo deklarationen och Palestinamandatets stadgar. Dessutom säger  vapenstilleståndsavtalet från 1949 klart och tydligt att vapenstilleståndslinjen inte skall ha någon betydelse för var en eventuell gräns dras.

För 60 år sedan ockuperade arabstaten Jordanien och Egypten västbaken och Gaza (områden som enligt avtalen ovan getts till judarna), då hade det funnits möjlighet att bilda en palestinsk stat på området, men ingen var då intresserad. Först efter att Israel fått kontroll över områdena blev det aktuellt med en palestinsk stat.

Den fredsplan som USA arbetat med nu i några år och som kanske snart publiceras lär ha lite andra utgångspunkter än den gamla tvåstatslösningen enligt vapenstilleståndslinjen från 1949. Men eftersom både araber och européer är så starkt bundna till den gamla tvåstatslösningen finns det knappast förmåga till nytänkande bland dem.

Palestinska myndighetens tidning framställer terrorist som Jesus

 [Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Oct. 16, 2019]
Samer Arbid is the Palestinian terrorist arrested with two others for detonating a bomb which murdered 17-year-old Rina Shnerb and injured her father and brother near the Dolev spring on Aug. 26, 2019.
Arbid, who is a member of the terror organization Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, was hospitalized for 2 weeks soon after his arrest, and the Palestinian Authority claimed that it was a result of his interrogation. Having allegedly been injured by Jews, the official PA daily published a cartoon portraying the terrorist as Jesus on the cross.
Portraying a Palestinian terrorist suspected of murder as Jesus is in keeping with the PA’s rewriting history and its fundamental support of terror, which claims that Jesus was the first Palestinian "Martyr", and that terrorist murderers are heroes

Nära förestående attack från Iran?

Israeliska politiska och militära ledare har de senaste dagarna varnat för en iransk attack mot Israel. Man fruktar att Iran, uppmuntrad av den framgångsrika attacken mot Saudiarabien, kommer att försöka attackera Israel eller andra judiska mål i en liknande attack med med missiler och drönare.
Beredskapen på israeliska ambassader har ökats och det israeliska luftförsvaret har gjort förberedelser för att vara bättre förberedd på en eventuell attack.

Lövhyddohögtiden

Firandet av Lövhyddohögtiden (Sukkot) inleds i kväll.
Höstens tre stora högtider påminner oss om viktiga saker i våra liv och i vår relation till Gud.
Den första högtiden Rosh Hashana (Nyåret) eller Basunblåsardagen påminner oss om att vi en dag kommer att stå inför Guds domstol.
En dag kommer de orättvisor och den ondska som vi dagligen kan se omkring oss (och ibland inom oss) att få sin dom. Bara den som har sitt namn i Livets bok får leva i Guds gemenskap.

Försoningsdagen påminner oss om att vi behöver förlåtelse för våra synder och att vi skall förlåta varandra. Under templets tid offrade översteprästen för folkets synder på Försoningsdagen, Vi kristna tror och litar på att Jesus, Messias, blev det slutliga och fullkomliga offret för människornas synder, båda judars och hedningars. Tack vare honom kan vi tro att våra namn finns i Livets bok.

Lövhyddohögtiden är en glädjehögtid då vi egentligen ser fram mot att få se bakåt.
Under Lövhyddohögtiden kommer man ihåg hur Gud tog hand om sitt folk under ökenvandringen.
Vi kan se på vårt jordeliv som en ökenvandring, vi är på väg mot något bättre, mot vårt hemland. En dag kommer vi att kunna se tillbaka och glädja oss över att Gud var med oss under vår vandring och förde oss hela vägen hem.
Medan vi är på väg får vi glädja oss över att Jesus lovat att komma tillbaka och hämta oss till sig.

Hag Sameah! Ha en glad högtid!

Jesaja 12
 1  På den dagen skall du säga: "Jag tackar dig, HERRE, du var vred på mig, men din vrede har upphört och du tröstar mig. 
2  Se, Gud är min frälsning, jag är trygg och fruktar inte, ty HERREN HERREN är min starkhet och min lovsång. Han har blivit min frälsning." 
Med fröjd skall ni ösa vatten ur frälsningens (Yeshuas) källor. 
4  På den dagen skall ni säga: "Tacka HERREN, åkalla hans namn, gör hans gärningar kända bland folken. Förkunna att hans namn är upphöjt. 
5  Lovsjung HERREN, ty han har gjort härliga ting. Låt detta bli känt över hela jorden. 
6  Ropa av fröjd och jubla, ni Sions invånare, ty Israels Helige är stor, han är mitt ibland er." 

Johannes 7
37  På den sista dagen, den största i högtiden, stod Jesus (Yeshua)och ropade: "Om någon törstar, så kom till mig och drick! 
38  Den som tror på mig, ur hans innersta skall strömmar av levande vatten flyta fram, som Skriften säger."

Sydafrikanska anglikanska kyrkan stöder bojkott av Israel

Den anglikanska kyrkan i Sydafrika (ACSA) stöder bojkottrörelsen mot Israel tills Israel upphör med ockupationen av Palestina. Den påpekar också att dagens Israel och Bibelns Israel inte skall förväxlas med varandra.
Man kan bara kommentera att som kyrka kan ACSA inte komma längre från sina rötter. Till "Bibelns Israel" lovade Gud att de skulle få Israels land till evig tid. En palestinsk stat har aldrig existerat. Ändå vill ACSA att judarna upphör med att ockupera Palestina. Det landområde som Gud i Bibeln gav till Israels folk skall alltså enligt ACSA ges till araberna. Tala om att trotsa Gud!

Bibeln talar också tydligt om en tid när det judiska folket skall återvända till sitt land. Det återvändandet har vi fått bevittna under de senaste hundra åren. Men enligt ACSA skall vi blunda för verkligheten och uppfyllelsen av Bibelns profetior. De judar som återvänder till Israel för att återuppbygga landet har enligt dem inte någon koppling till Bibelns Israel.
Vad kan man annat säga än att det finns ett stort mörker idag över vissa kyrkor!

Preliminärt valresultat

När 90% av rösterna är räknade ser det ut såhär:


ISRAEL ELECTIONS RESULTS BASED ON COUNTED BALLOTS

När 90% av rösterna är räknade är det väldigt jämnt mellan Likud och de Blåvita. Vilket betyder att valresultatet ganska långt är en upprepning av valet i april och det betyder svåra regeringsförhandlingar som kräver kompromisser. För tillfället ser det ut som om de Blåvita skulle få en plats mera än Netanyahus Likud.

Round two: ToI’s guide to the 30 parties that want your vote, again (TOI)

"Everything you need to know about the front-runners, the new alliances, the parties in danger of stumbling under the electoral threshold, and the earnest yet hopeless unknowns

On Tuesday, Israelis head to the ballot box in what could herald a repeat of the gridlock after April’s national vote, when Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu failed to form a coalition and then sent the country back to the polls in order to prevent his chief rival, Blue and White chair Benny Gantz, from having the opportunity to try and form a coalition of his own.

With public interest in the second election at a record low, parties have largely waited until the final weeks of the campaign to push their message to voters, focusing primarily on dissuading the public from voting for their rivals on both sides of the political aisle.

The total of 30 factions is down from the last election cycle, when a record 47 parties registered for the April 9 vote. America somehow gets by with two political parties for its 300 million-strong population. We fewer than nine million Israelis, with our over-abundance of political democracy, evidently need dozens of choices..."

PA:s kulturminister förnekar judarnas historia

Nothing proves it, they have no connection to history (PMW)
"One of the central elements of the Palestinian narrative is the negation of the entire Jewish history in the Land of Israel in general and in Jerusalem in particular. Despite numerous sources and archeological finds proving the opposite, the Palestinian Authority regularly repeats this claim because it is the basis for the PA's denial of Israel's right to exist. Recently, the PA Minister of Culture emphasized this Palestinian lie, claiming Israel has "no connection" to Jerusalem, history, geography or even to the future. He then asserted the second fundamental Palestinian historical revision intended to create a Palestinian right to exist. He claimed that Palestinians were Canaanites with a 6,000-year history in the land: ..."

Facebook har valt att stöda Fatahs terroristpropaganda

Palestinian Media Watch har dokumenterat hur Fatah använder Facebook till att sprida hatpropaganda mot judar och Israel. Fatah prisar och förhärligar terrorister som mördat judar och framställer dem som hjältar och förebilder.
Trots att PMW har tagit kontakt med Brian Fishman, som är  Director of Facebook’s Global Counterterrorism Policy Team, har inte sidan stoppats. Tvärtom! Facebook väljer att fortsättningsvis ge Fatah rätt att använda Facebook . Mord på judar är tydligen inget problem för Facebook.

Brian Fishman säger i sitt svar till PMW att Fatahs sida inte strider mot Facebooks regler men att "han förstår att den kan vara stötande och obehaglig för dig därför  vill vi  hjälpa dig att se mindre av sådant... du kan blockera Fatahs facebook sida direkt eller sluta att följa den".

It doesn't go against one of our specific Community Standards... We understand that it may still be offensive or distasteful to you, so we want to help you see less of things like it... You can block [Fatah's Facebook page] directly, or you may be able to unfriend or unfollow them.”

Blunda är alltså rådet från Facebook! Tyvärr är det en sådan värld vi lever i!

Stop the Fatah - Facebook Terror Promotion Partnership (PMW)

-Whereas in 2018 Facebook was an unwitting partner in Fatah’s terror promotion, in 2019 Facebook is a partner in Fatah's terror promotion by choice

-Facebook’s mission is to “build community and bring the world closer together,” not to build easy communication lines to promote terror. For Facebook to allow its platform to be used this way is incomprehensible and abhorrent.

-PMW again demands that Facebook immediately close down Fatah’s official page before more innocent lives are lost to murderers who are inspired and drawn to terror by Fatah’s Facebook page...

Violence and terror are central to Fatah’s mission. Fatah uses Facebook to glorify terror attacks in which Israelis are murdered and to present the terrorist murderers as role models. Fatah also uses its Facebook page to inform Palestinians that one of the things that remain special about Fatah is its continued adherence to terror.

Oroligt vid Gazagränsen

Veckoslutet var våldsammare än på länge vid Gazagränsen. Över 6000 personer deltog i upploppen och kastade granater och brandbomber mot de israeliska soldaterna vid gränsen. Flera försök gjordes att skada gränsstängslet.
Palestinierna använde också en drönare för att bomba israeliska soldater.
Två palestinier dödades i upploppen och två som försökte ta sig över gränsen arresterades.
Fem raketer sköts från Gaza mot Israel, ingen skadades av raketerna.

  • The PA Ministry of Religious Affairs compares Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu's visit to Hebron today to then opposition leader Sharon's visit to the Temple Mount in 2000, which Arafat exploited to ignite the Intifada in which over 1,100 Israelis were murdered in terror attacks
  • The PA Ministry of Religious Affairs further threatened: "It will drag the region into a religious war"
By Nan Jacques Zilberdik and Itamar Marcus
Is the PA trying to ignite a new terror campaign? In anticipation of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu's visit to Hebron and the Cave of the Patriarchs today, the PA Ministry of Religious Affairs has threatened "religious war."
The ministry compared Netanyahu's visit to the visit of then Israeli opposition leader Ariel Sharon to the Temple Mount in 2000, which then PA Chairman Arafat exploited to ignite the PA's 5-year terror campaign - the Intifada. Over a period of 5 years, more than 1,100 Israelis were murdered in terror attacks that included numerous suicide bombings:
"The Ministry of Religious Affairs emphasized in a statement it published yesterday that Netanyahu's visit constitutes a grave escalation and a blow to the Muslims' sensibilities, and that it will drag the region into a religious war whose consequences will be grave. It reminds us of [Israeli Prime Minister] Ariel Sharon's visit in Jerusalem (i.e., to the Temple Mount) in 2000, which ignited the Al-Aqsa Intifada."
[Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Sept. 4, 2019]
The PA ministry also encouraged violence and confrontations:
"The ministry called on our people to defend the Ibrahim Mosque and prevent all of the plans to take it over and remove the Muslims from it. He called on the international community to help and stop the Israeli actions, out of fear that the entire area will go up in flames."
[Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Sept. 4, 2019]
Netanyahu is visiting Hebron today as part of an official Israeli ceremony to commemorate the murder of 65 Jews by Arabs in 1929.
Recently, as part of the PA's annual glorification of three of the murderers from 1929 - the PA justified the massacres as follows: "They [the Jews] held an additional demonstration through the streets of Jerusalem until they reached the Al-Buraq Wall (i.e., the Western Wall) and there they read their hymns in a highly provocative manner to which the proud souls are not accustomed." [Official PA TV News, June 17, 2019]
Since the PA has already justified the murder of Jews because they "read hymns in a provocative way," the claim that Netanyahu's visit will be "a blow to the Muslims' sensibilities," should not be underestimated as it might serve as a valid cause for the use of violence in Palestinian eyes.
Recently Palestinian Media Watch documented that Fatah youth threatened intifada in response to the Bahrain Conference.
The following is a longer excerpt of the report on the reaction by the PA Ministry of Religious Affairs to Netanyahu's Hebron visit:
Headline: "The [PA] Ministry of Religious Affairs warns against the dangerous situation at the Ibrahimi Mosque"
"The [PA] Ministry of Religious Affairs warned against the dangerous situation at the Ibrahimi Mosque (i.e., Cave of the Patriarchs) in Hebron after settlers set up tents at Tel Rumeida (i.e., the Jewish neighborhood of Hebron) in the center of the city for the visit of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to the city. [The visit] is expected to take place tomorrow (sic., today, Aug. 4., 2019) on the pretext of participating in government ceremonies to mark 90 years since the Al-Burak Rebellion (i.e., the 1929 Hebron Massacre in which 65 Jews were murdered)...
The Ministry of Religious Affairs emphasized in a statement it published yesterday that Netanyahu's visit constitutes a grave escalation and a blow to the Muslims' sensibilities, and that it will drag the region into a religious war whose consequences will be grave. It reminds us of [Israeli Prime Minister] Ariel Sharon's visit in Jerusalem (i.e., to the Temple Mount) in 2000, which ignited the Al-Aqsa Intifada (i.e., PA terror campaign 2000-2005, more than 1,100 Israelis murdered).
It should be noted that the occupation authorities notified the residents of the Tel Rumeida neighborhood, the Old City [of Hebron], and the surrounding area of limiting steps for the visit, among them the closing of the Ibrahimi Mosque to [Muslim] worshippers and the imposing of a curfew.
The Ministry of Religious Affairs condemned the demands of Likud, Shas, and the Union of the Right- Wing Parties ministers and MPs to allow the construction of a Jewish neighborhood in the area of the Jewish market in Hebron and above the houses of the Old City.
The ministry called on our people to defend the Ibrahim Mosque and prevent all of the plans to take it over and remove the Muslims from it. He called on the international community to help and stop the Israeli actions, out of fear that the entire area will go up in flames."

Inga fördömanden av mordet på den israeliska flickan från Palestinska myndigheten

Palestinska myndigheten och media fördömer inte mordet på den 17-åriga israeliska flickan. Istället ljuger de och påstår att hon var en soldat och bosättare.

PA fails to condemn murder of 17-year-old Israeli girl,
but when murderers are caught PA will reward them
  • If the murderer/s are caught, the PA will pay them a salary during their time in prison and after their release
  • If the murderer/s is killed, the PA will pay their families a monthly allowance for the rest of their lives
  • The PA will make the payments simply as a reward for the act of terror, regardless of the terrorists' affiliation
By Maurice Hirsch, Adv.
Hours after a bomb exploded at the "Danny Spring" on Friday Aug. 23, murdering 17-year-old Rina Shnerb and injuring her father and brother, US President Donald Trump's Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt took to Twitter to demand that the Palestinian Authority condemn the attack. He added: "If they don't, donor countries should demand the PA answer for why their donor funds continue to be used to reward attacks."
Despite numerous checks, and notwithstanding the fact that the PA media has referred to the attack on multiple occasions, Palestinian Media Watch could find no statement whatsoever of any PA official condemning the attack. Rather the PA media chose to falsely claim that Rina was a "soldier" and a "settler."

PA TV reported that Israeli forces had set up road blocks around Ramallah "on the pretext" that someone had killed an Israeli soldier.
Official PA TV newsreader: "The occupation forces closed the main roads to the villages west of Ramallah and increased their military presence at the entrances to the Ramallah and El-Bireh district. This took place on the pretext of the killing of a female Israeli soldier and the wounding of others near the settlement named Dolev, which is located on the [Arab] residents' lands of west of Ramallah."
[Official PA TV News, Aug. 23, 2019]
Needless to say, 17-year-old Rina was not a soldier and no Israeli authority ever claimed she was a soldier.

WAFA, the official PA news agency, printed a number of articles relating to the event. While Rina was a resident of Lod, a town in Israel (within the 1949 Armistice lines), the reports systematically described her as a "settler" and focused on the measures taken by Israel to apprehend the terrorists who carried out the attack:
"The Israeli army  had also set up roadblocks on different roads in the West Bank following an attack earlier in the day against settlers near Ramallah in which one settler was killed and two others injured and attacked the P. " (error in source - Ed.)
[WAFA, English edition, Official PA news agency, Aug. 23, 2019]
"Israeli forces today sealed off main roads leading to the western Ramallah district in the West Bank following a suspected attack that resulted in the killing of a settler, confirmed local sources."
[WAFA, English edition, Official PA news agency, Aug. 23, 2019]

"The explosion near Ramallah that killed an Israeli settler and injured two others as well as revenge acts by the settlers against the civilian Palestinian population in the occupied territory were highlighted on the front page of the three Palestinian Arabic dailies today."
[WAFA, English edition, Official PA news agency, Aug. 24, 2019]
"The arrests and seizure of the cameras are believed related to the Israeli army investigation into the explosion from yesterday near the village of Ein Arik that killed one Israeli settler and injured two others."
[WAFA, English edition, Official PA news agency, Aug. 24, 2019]
The official PA daily similarly wrote:
Headline: "The killing of a female settler and wounding of two additional people west of Ramallah, and the settlers are rioting"
"The Israeli occupation forces closed many main roads to villages west of Ramallah yesterday [Aug. 23, 2019] and increased their military presence at the entrances to the Ramallah and El-Bireh districts, on the pretext of the killing of a female settler and the wounding of two additional people next to the settlement of Dolev, which is located on [Palestinian] citizens' land west of Ramallah."
[Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Aug. 24, 2019]
PA Chairman Abbas' Fatah party echoed the PA media, claiming that Rina was a settler. Posting on its official Facebook page, Fatah wrote:
"Pictures from the site where the female settler was killed and two others were wounded by the explosion of a bomb west of Ramallah."
[Official Fatah Facebook page, Aug. 23, 2019]
The post has received over 100 interactions including 2 "love" heart symbols , 94 "like"s and 4 "ha-ha" laughing smileys.
The PA referred to her, as it often does to victims of terror, as a "settler" and "soldier," because from the PA's perspective it makes her an even more legitimate target than killing other Israelis. The PA TV News reporting on the murder of American Taylor Force who was murdered in Tel Aviv also called him a "settler."


In another post Fatah added:

Posted text: "The moment the operation was carried out. The occupation says that it was a high-quality and complicated operation."
[Official Fatah Facebook page, Aug. 23, 2019]
This post has also received dozens of interactions with one person responding with the symbol of two fingers motioning "V" for victory.



 Even if the PA had bothered to pay even the minimal lip service required and issue a condemnation, it would be meaningless as its actions will speak louder than their words. If the terrorist/s who murdered Rina are caught alive, the PA will pay them a salary in prison and even after their release. If they are killed during an attempt to arrest them, the PA will pay their families a monthly allowance for the rest of their lives. The PA will pay these salaries/allowances simply because the terrorist/s carried out a terrorist attack, and regardless of whether the terrorists belong to Fatah, Hamas, or acted alone. 

As noted by Greenblatt, in the absence of a condemnation (not only by words but also by actions) the countries that are funding the PA should ask themselves why they are contributing aid to the PA, while the PA uses its resources to pay financial rewards to terrorists.

Flera terrorattacker i augusti

En död i terrorattack mot familj

Ännu 90 år efter Hebron massakern fortsätter araberna att mörda judar.
 Idag dödades en ung flicka, 17-åriga Rina Shnerb, när hon tillsammans med sin familj vandrade vid ett populärt utflyktsområde i närheten av bosättningen Dolev. En bomb exploderade dödade flickan  och skadade svårt hennes bror och pappa.
De ansvariga för attacken söks för tillfället av polis och militär.

Hamas har inte tagit på sig ansvaret för attacken men prisar attacken som en "modig attack " som "bevisar det palestinska folkets mod".

Nåja, åtminstone bevisar den vart den palestinska hatpropagandan fört delar av den palestinska befolkningen. Till ett tillstånd där man anser att det är modigt att spränga barn i luften.

Hebron massakern 1929

Palestinska myndigheten hedrar dem som utförde massaker på judar för 90 år sedan!
1929, 19 år innan det fanns en judisk stat mördade araber judar i Hebron, Jerusalem och Safed.
Idag hedrar palestinska myndigheten mördarna som hjältar och förebilder.

The PA connection to the 1929 murder of 130 Jews

"Today marks 90 years since the Hebron Massacre of 67 Jews. Rampaging Arabs also murdered Jews in Jerusalem and Tzefat. In total, in the course of just one week, Arabs murdered 130 Jews.

While the massacre took place in 1929, over 60 years before its creation, the Palestinian Authority has wholeheartedly adopted the event, glorifying three of its participants and perpetuating the spark that ignited the massacre.

In the aftermath of the massacres, British mandate forces arrested and prosecuted dozens of Arabs. While most of the death sentences handed down were commuted to life imprisonment, three Arabs who, according to a report by the British government to the League of Nations, "committed particularly brutal murders at Safad and Hebron" were put to death on June 17, 1930.   

Every year the PA marks the execusion of these three murderers - Muhammad Jamjoum, Fuad Hijazi, and Ataa Al-Zir.

In June this year, on the 89th anniversary of their execution, PA TV marked the execution of "the three heroes" and used the opportunity to add that they have become "a legend of self-sacrifice for the homeland" and that "souls that have been sacrificed for their country will not die." In this manner, the PA constantly reinforces its message that dying while carrying out an act of terrorism is an outcome that guarantees that the souls of the terrorists do not die."

Finska YLE :s rubrik en skandal

Finska YLE:
Israelin armeija ampui kolme palestiinalaista Gazan rajalla, kertoo ministeriö
(Israeliska armén sköt tre palestinier i Gazaremsans norra del, meddelar Gazas hälsovårdsministerium)
Israelilaissotilaat tappoivat kolme palestiinalaista Gazan kaistan pohjoisosissa, kertoo Gazan terveysministeriö.

Israelilaislehti Haaretzin mukaan uhrit olivat parikymppisiä miehiä. Ministeriö kertoo, että lisäksi yksi palestiinalainen on sairaalahoidossa.

Israelin armeija kertoi aikaisemmin, että helikopteri ja panssarivaunu ampuivat "aseistautuneita epäiltyjä" Gazan kaistan ja Israelin toisistaan erottavan aidan tuntumassa.

Om man inte bara läser rubriken så får man reda på att det faktiskt var "beväpnade misstänkta" som sköts men varken i denna artikel  eller i text TV:s text får läsarna reda på att det var beväpnade terrorister som försökte ta sig över gränsen till Israel. YLE väljer att utelämna en väldigt viktig detalj i rapporteringen. De israeliska soldaterna försvarade israeliskt territorium mot ett fientligt angrepp.



Finska text-TV:(fri översättning)  Gaza: tre palestinier sköts
"Israeliska soldater dödade tre palestinier i norra Gazaremsan berättar Gazas hälsovårdsministerium..."
Det nämns att det sköts tre raketer från Gaza innan armén slog till men inte med ett ord förklarar man att det var beväpnade terrorister som försökte ta sig över gränsen till Israel.
Minst sagt en rapportering som är vilseledande.

Trump kan bli en belastning för Israel

Herb Keinon analyserar i Jerusalem Post Israels beslut inte låta kongresskvinnorna Rashida Tlaib och Ilhan Omar resa in i Israel.
Hans slutsats blir att Israel och dess nuvarande och kommande premiärminister helt enkelt inte kan säga nej när USA:s president Trump ber dem om stöd.
Man måste kallt räkna med att trots att Israel förlorar i anseende när man vägrar inresetillstånd till kvinnorna skulle kostnaden bli ännu större om man går emot Trumps önskemål.
Trump använder Israel i det inrikespolitiska spelet mot det demokratiska partiet och i längden kommer detta antagligen att kosta Israel mycket, kanske mera än det skulle kosta att gå emot Trump.

NETANYAHU'S VS. RASHIDA TLAIB AND ILHAN OMAR'S CALCULATIONS
"...Trump is not asking for concessions from Israel; Trump is demanding political support from Netanyahu. Trump will ask for the same bear hug from Netanyahu in the run-up to the US presidential 2020 elections that he himself has extended to the prime minister.

And Netanyahu, because of everything the president has done positively for Israel – plus the political support Trump has given him personally – simply cannot say “no”.

Trump’s political need at the moment is to present the far-left Omar and Tlaib, along with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley, as the face of the Democratic Party. The party leadership may oppose their attitudes and dislike their positions, they may be far from the mainstream, but Trump’s goal is to turn them into the Democratic Party. And one way to do that is to force the Democratic Party, and its leaders to rally around them.

Which is exactly what happened last week.

When Ambassador to the US Ron Dermer said on July 19 that Israel would allow the two congresswomen to visit, he was articulating Israel’s policy – it would be a problematic visit, they would use their platform to bash Israel, the country would endure five days of bad press and then the caravan would move on.

But Trump wants Israel to keep the women out because this would – as it has – forced the Democrats to come to their defense. And that serves his political interests...."

Lapid: Barring Omar, Tlaib a ‘serious mistake’ and Netanyahu knows it

The day Netanyahu helped anti-Israel Democrats gain resonance and credibility

Twitter Donald J Trump:
It would show great weakness if Israel allowed Rep. Omar and Rep.Tlaib to visit. They hate Israel & all Jewish people, & there is nothing that can be said or done to change their minds. Minnesota and Michigan will have a hard time putting them back in office. They are a disgrace!

What Omar, Tlaib were going to do on their thwarted trip to Jerusalem, West Bank

Raketer från Gaza

Raketer sköts mot Israel från Gaza både under fredag och lördag kväll. Israel sköt ner raketerna men delar av en raket föll ner på en gårdsplan i Sderot. Ingen skadades direkt av raketerna men i samband med att människorna sökte sig till skyddsrum inträffade ett par olycksfall.
I samband med lördagens raketattacker försökte en grupp beväpnade terrorister från Gaza igen ta sig över gränsen till Israel men de upptäcktes av israeliska soldater och sköts.
Hamas anklagar som vanligt, oberoende av vad som hänt, Israel för brutalitet och brott mot det palestinska folket.

Palestinska ledare organiserade oroligheterna på Tempelberget i söndags

För att så många muslimer som möjligt skulle komma till Tempelberget i söndags för att förhindra judar att besöka området på minnesdagen av templets förstörelse stängdes de andra moskéerna i Jerusalem och bönetiderna ändrades.

The PA initiated clashes  on the Temple Mount (PMW)
By Maurice Hirsch, Adv. and Itamar Marcus

A guide to the Temple Mount published in 1925 by the Supreme Moslem Council of Mandate Palestine declares that its "identity with Solomon's Temple is beyond dispute." This senior Muslim authority repeated this confirmation of Jewish and Christian traditions in 1950 in a new guide, when Jerusalem and the Temple Mount were then under Jordanian rule. Despite these repeated affirmations by the top Muslim authority of the land, the Palestinian Authority is constantly attempting to rewrite even Muslim tradition, by denying the Jewish nature of the Temple Mount.  Accordingly, it refers to visits by Jews to this holy site as "invasions" and calls on Palestinians and the International community to defend the site and prevent its "Judaization." The PA deceptively refers to the entire Temple Mount as the "Al Aqsa Mosque", even though the actual mosque sits on a relatively small area in the south-western corner of the mount.

On Sunday, Israel marked the 9th day of the Jewish month of Av. According to Jewish tradition, on that day both the first and second Temples were destroyed. The same day marked the start of the Moslem Eid Al-Adha [Feast of the Sacrifice]

While some sources have blamed the Sunday clashes on the Jordanians, Palestinian Media Watch can show that it was the PA who was most instrumental in instigating the clashes and ensuing violence.

In an attempt to disrupt Jews' right to access the Mount on Sunday, the PA took a number of steps, including changing the times of the Moslem prayers on the Mount and calling for mosques around Jerusalem to remain closed in order to "recruit" as many people as possible to defend the site against the "invasions."

While the published time schedule for the 5 daily Moslem prayers, set the first prayer time for 04.29, the second (last morning prayer) for 05.56, and the third (first afternoon prayer) for 12.44 on  Aug. 9, 2019 the PA appointed Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and the Palestinian Territories decided to delay the second morning prayer to 07.30. The goal was to ensure that as many people would be present on the Temple Mount when the Jews were scheduled to start arriving.

Significantly, the morning prayers on Monday after the clashes, when Jews were prohibited from entering the Temple Mount, reverted to their original scheduling.

Broadcasting from the Temple Mount, PA TV showed how this tactic had succeeded and that as the Jews were planning to enter the Mount through the Mughrabi (Morroco) Gate crowds of Palestinians gathered at the site in order to prevent the entrance of the Jews. When the time came, at 09.10, the Mufti called for an impromptu prayer session at the entrance to the gate.

Official PA TV reporter: "Viewers, we will now try to reach [PA Grand] Mufti of Jerusalem [and Palestinian Supreme Fatwa Council Chairman] Sheikh Muhammad Hussein. Your Honor, Sheikh, could you explain for us-"
Man: "We want to pray."
Reporter: "They are now praying. His Honor the mufti is now holding prayers in front of the Mughrabi Gate. As he just told us, the prayer in front of the Mughrabi Gate is an act of protest...
How do you explain the prayer being held now - the afternoon prayer now? Is this a scene of protest in response to the intent of the occupation and herds of settlers to break in [to the Al-Aqsa Mosque] (refers to Jews visiting the Temple Mount on Tisha B'Av on Aug. 11, 2019, which coincided with the Muslim holiday of Eid Al-Adha; see note below -Ed.)?"
Al-Aqsa Mosque "guard" Fadi Alyan: "Of course the Muslims are taking different steps to prevent the break-ins to the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque. Of course [this is] the late morning prayer (i.e., not a mandatory prayer), and not the afternoon [prayer]. Strange sights are taking place at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, both the postponement of the holiday prayer by an hour (i.e., from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 a.m. in order to block Jews from visiting), and holding the late morning prayer."
Reporter: "In other words, the prayers are being held at a different time than usual in order to defend the Al-Aqsa Mosque?"
Fadi Alyan: "Exactly. The prayers are being held at a different time than usual in order to defend [it] and reinforce that this site belongs completely to the Muslims."
[Official PA TV, Holiday Morning, Aug. 11, 2019]
 
In preparation for these events, the Mufti had already repeated the claim that "the Al-Aqsa Mosque is the sole right of the Muslims, and that neither the occupation authorities nor anyone else has a right to interfere in its matters..." [Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Aug. 7, 2019]

PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas' Advisor on Religious Affairs and Supreme Shari'ah Judge Mahmoud Al-Habbash gave similar reasoning for delaying the morning prayers, in a post on his Facebook account. Al-Habbash, called for Ribat, which is Islamic resistance and refers to anything from outright terror to quiet protest, and added what appears to have been a direct call to violence: "the Al-Aqsa Mosque is our Jihad."
Posted text: "Postponing the [Eid Al-Adha] (i.e., the Sacrifice Feast) prayers at the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the sacrifice of the sacrifices of those carrying out Ribat in Jerusalem to the second day of the holiday so that people will be available to carry out Ribat at the Al-Aqsa Mosque in order to resist the Israeli plans to invade the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the first day of the holiday (which coincides with the Jewish fast of Tisha B'Av see note below -Ed.). Our mosque is our Ribat and the Al-Aqsa Mosque is our Jihad."
[Facebook page of Supreme Shari'ah Judge Mahmoud Al-Habbash, Aug. 9, 2019]
In order to ensure that the Palestinians came to the Temple Mount instead of attending their local mosques, the Mufti decided to close all of the Jerusalem mosques.


Official PA TV host: "We will note that a statement by Head of the Supreme Muslim Council Dr. Sheikh Ikrima Sabri, the Palestinian Supreme Fatwa Council signed by [Council Chairman and PA Grand Mufti] Muhammad Hussein, and also the Islamic Waqf Council led by [Council Chairman] Abdul Azim Salhab was published yesterday [Aug. 8, 2019] on the necessity to close all of the Jerusalem mosques on Sunday[Aug. 11, 2019], in order to mobilize the largest possible number of people for prayer at the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque plazas."
[Official PA TV, Good Morning Jerusalem, Aug. 9, 2019]
Having successfully initiated the violence on the Temple Mount in an attempt to prevent Jews from visiting Judaism's most holy site on the day the commemorates the destruction of both the Temples, Al-Habbash then attempted to use the violence as an excuse to inflame the sensibilities of all Muslims.
"Supreme Shari'ah Judge and PA President Mahmoud Abbas Advisor on Religious Affairs and Islamic Relations Mahmoud Al-Habbash called on Muslims throughout the world to defend the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque from the Israeli occupation's plots and its barbaric harm, of which the world saw another chapter of its racism today [Aug, 11, 2019] with its break-in to the Al-Aqsa Mosque and its attack against worshippers there.
In a press statement today (Sunday), Al-Habbash requested of Muslims in all of the world's states to make a pilgrimage to the Al-Aqsa Mosque and to carry out Ribat there with their Palestinian brothers in order to participate with them in the battle in defense of the sanctity of the First Direction of Prayer (i.e., Jerusalem) and the third holiest site against the criminal attack that is being committed by the state of occupation and terrorist colonialists who are desecrating the plazas of the Noble Sanctuary since the morning in a blatant strike against Muslim sensibilities on their blessed Eid Al-Adha day (i.e., the Sacrifice Feast)."
[WAFA, official PA news agency, Aug. 11, 2019]
Ironically, while it was the PA who was trying to prevent the Jews from excercizing their right to enter the Temple Mount, Al-Habbash hypocritically called these visits "racism".
PA Governor of Ramallah and El-Bireh Dr. Laila Ghannam, similarly justified those carrying out Ribat and condemned the world's silence in the face of the "attacks against the worshippers at the Al-Aqsa Mosque".
Posted text: "El-Bireh - Aug. 11, 2019 - [District] Governor of Ramallah and El-Bireh Dr. Laila Ghannam, and alongside her the district's security council, laid wreaths of flowers on the Martyrs' graves in the city of El-Bireh the morning of the [Eid Al-Adha] (i.e., the Sacrifice Feast)...
Governor Ghannam... blessed the people of Jerusalem and those carrying out Ribat (i.e., religious conflict/war over land claimed to be Islamic) at the Al-Aqsa Mosque. She noted that our people will continue to defend its holy sites, the Islamic and Christian ones, and will not allow them to be treated as abandoned.
She condemned the world's silence in the face of the occupation's attacks against the worshippers at the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the morning of the blessed Eid Al-Adha ...and demanded that the world act quickly to stop the attacks and the Judaization that are taking place in Jerusalem."
The picture shows the Ramallah and EliBireh district's security council before the Martyrs' graves in El-Bireh.
[Facebook page of District Governor of Ramallah and El-Bireh Laila Ghannam, Aug. 11, 2019]
 
In anticipation of the violence, last week the PA Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates already prepared the PA narrative, blaming the violence on US President Donald Trump's decisions regarding Jerusalem and the international community's silence to the so-called "Judaization" of the "Al-Aqsa Mosque."

"The ministry emphasized that [US President Donald] Trump's decisions regarding Jerusalem (i.e., the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital and the transfer of the US embassy there; see note below) and the international community's silence... are whetting the appetite of the extremists in Israel to implement more Judaization plans against the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque and to try and impose Israeli sovereignty over it - if not to destroy it and build the so-called Temple in its place."

Abbas åsikt om palestiniernas historia och judarnas rätt till Judéen, Samarien och Jerusalem

Eftersom palestinierna som folk inte egentligen har någon historia i området mellan Medelhavet och Jordan håller de palestinska ledarna på med historieförfalskning.
De kan ändå inte riktigt bestämma sig för hur de skall ha det, ibland påstår de att de är ättlingar till filistéerna och i bland, som Abbas nu, att de härstammar från kananéerna.
Det duger inte att erkänna att en del av araberna i området har bott där i flera hundra år och andra flyttat dit från närliggande områden under de senaste hundra åren eftersom judarnas återkomst skapat många arbetstillfällen.
Hela den palestinska identiteten är skapad under senare delen av 1900-talet, före det betraktade sig den arabiska befolkningen helt enkelt som araber (judar i området kallades palestinier).

Abbas: Settlements will be swept away, Palestinians came from ancient Canaanites (TOI)
“We will remain and no one will be able to move us out of our homeland. He who wants to do that: ‘Go.’ The unexpected visitor in this country has no right in this country. Thus, we tell them: ‘Every brick you laid in our land and every house you built in our land will vanish, if God permits,'” Abbas said, speaking in an event hall at the Jalazone refugee camp, which is situated north of Ramallah and adjacent to the Israeli settlement of Beit El.

“Whatever homes they announce here or settlements there, they will all disappear, if God wills it. They will be in the dustbins of history and they will remember that this land is for its people, its residents and the Canaanites who were here 5,000 years ago. We are the Canaanites,” he added.
