Hamas Says They Will Not Stop

 

Hamas will not stop the rioting and attempts to crash through the border in order to loose thousands of rioters who have been driven into bloodlust rushing across the border to, quoting Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar, “Eat the livers of those besieging” Gaza and “We will tear Israelis’ hearts out.” Since he has further promised to continue the riotous peaceful demonstrations replete with Molotov Cocktails, grenades, AK-47s, sling fired rocks, burning tires and terrorists cutting the wire and fencing (see image below). These fence-cutting attempts are being targeted at specific areas of the fence concentrating them such that they have an accumulative result weakening the fence for a potential future rush on the border. Everything being done during the border rioting, in our opinion, has one of seven or so many purposes; forcing breaks in the border, breaking vast numbers of rioters through across the border, slide terrorists into Israel within the border rush to commit future acts of terror, show some photogenic peaceful protesters for the world media, shoot at IDF soldiers plus any Israelis close to the border, fire stones from slings at IDF forces, pump the rioters into angered murderous frenzies and coordinate enough of this to provoke at least one mass casualty event through mass border crash to provide world media with the pictures of dead and injured “peaceful protesters” when the IDF has no other choice when facing massive border crossing but to use live fire when rubber bullets are insufficient to prevent what must be considered an invasion of Israel.

But do not believe that the only country having hate shown is Israel. The Gazans and Hamas have another country they view as an enemy which should be struck whenever possible. When you cannot strike directly, how does a protester show their contempt for that nation outside the reach of your forces? Well, you burn their flag, and that was exactly how we discover Hamas protesters striking at the United States (see below). The Israeli flag was not spared as they draped an unfortunate donkey with an Israeli flag, drenched the animal in flammable liquid and set it on fire killing the poor animal but not before it suffered greatly. We were unable to get an estimate on the number and types of flags burned during the now two weeks of rioting. What we found instead was sympathetic articles reflecting the distress by Hamas leaders that this past Friday’s rioting during which they invested in an estimated ten-thousand tires which were burned in the hopes that they could mask the border fence making it easier for their fence cutters to get their work done. One thing which need be made understood is that destroying the border fence with intent of breaching the border is an act of violence which is criminal and considered an act of war. This makes those cutting through the border fence or placing explosives at points of the border fence to be considered as armed invaders and thus legal targets which can be shot with live fire. Israel has used water cannons, and should that fail they escalate to rubber bullets and should that fail then they resort to live fire. That is insufficient restraint for the European media and many leftist media as the only restrain they might accept from Israel would be a complete surrender and the Israelis lining up to be placed in camps. There is no way these anti-Semites will get their way and to them we would like to repeat a phrase which for us has a special meaning, “Never Again!” We are aware that there are those who do not even begin to understand what the phrase means and from whence it originates as the educators for the past decade, possibly longer, have no longer taught traditional history. Yes, they have history courses, but they mostly teach histories which support the story line which illuminates those things where White Europeans or Americans oppressed or colonized other peoples thus exploiting them and engaging in White Privilege. White History cannot have any redeeming stories, only condemnable acts.

As far as the world media and the United Nations are concerned, the Israelis are the ultimate of those exploiting others and imposing their White Privilege. Never mind that approximately half of the Israeli population originates from the MENA* nations and were forced from their homes leaving their wealth, businesses and property behind and were never compensated. They came to Israel as most had no relatives in Europe or America, just within the MENA world and thus had no nation to run to except Israel. Some who had relatives were able to make it to Europe or North America, but over three-fourths ended up in Israel. The nation of Israel was not economically, financially, or even structurally capable of accepting these numbers, but receive them Israel did. There was not sufficient housing so some had to live in camps and many were taken in by families who had any room to place their brothers and sisters through religion and not by close relations. With time, Israel constructed residences, with time, these refugees found jobs, and today some are the most successful Israelis. Israeli Minister of Justice Ayelet Shaked is the grandchild of one of these refugees, as her paternal grandmother immigrated to Israel from Iraq as a single mother in the 1950s as part of the Jewish exodus from Arab and Muslim countries. As far as that goes, one on our staff’s mother was raised in India and comes from a family of Iraqi Jews. So much for Israel being a European outpost, we are from this region as explained in the Torah which tells of our earliest history and even before. We are all family being the offspring of Yaakov, son of Isaack, son of Avraham. This is our home and we are going to stay here as our exile, our long, long, oh so very long exile has finally come to an end. Sure, there are some Jews who mostly because they fear having to establish and make a new nation flourish thus claim that all Jews must wait for the Moshiach to lead the Jews home. Perhaps they missed the teachings in the Megillah of Esther where the Jews are saved but only by their own actions. First Esther refuses but is told that should she refuse to act, then her name will never be heard amongst her people as another will complete this task. Then, after she has informed the king of the evil, the only assistance the Jews are permitted is to save themselves by their own hands. Despite not being part of the story, we know that once the Jews of Persia took the initial step of helping themselves that Hashem then assisted their efforts granting them their victory. Thus, the whole idea that Hashem helps those who first help themselves, as first stated in Greek fables.

 

Hamas states that they will not cease their current rioting until the border is erased and they pray in al-Aqsa Mosque. If that were truly their desire, they are going about it in as wrong a way as possible. Before there was trouble from Gaza, there were a number of Gazans permitted each Friday to cross to Jerusalem to pray at al-Aqsa. When Hamas started using this privilege to place bombs or sneak items either into or out of Gaza as well as other terrorist efforts, then this privilege was rescinded for the protection of the Israeli public. But Gaza does not desire praying in al-Aqsa as much as they desire to rampage across Israel murdering every Israeli they can find. This has been a staple in the speeches by Yahya Sinwar from when he was commander of the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas’s military wing, and continues to make this claim as the new Hamas commander. That was what was behind the fiery rhetoric as mentioned earlier, “Eat the livers of those besieging” Gaza, and “We will tear Israelis’ hearts out.” Those are not words of peace, cooperation and friendly neighbors. Those are the words of the genocidal maniac who was placed as commander of the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades because of his hatred and determination to murder every Israeli and he was advanced to command all of Hamas because of his desire to go further and murder every Jew in the world. He was the perfect choice to fulfill the goals placed out in their charter. The entirety of the Arab Palestinians, those in Gaza and those in Judea and Samaria, all of them and many Arabs and Muslims the world over believe it is their destiny to rule the world but that first they must fight and destroy the Jews. As it states in the Hamas Charter in Article Seven, “The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdullah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.” It does not get any more obvious than this. Let the world media, the European Union, the United Nations, the leftist NGOs and all the anti-Semites continue to claim that Israel is the aggressor and the ones standing in the way of peace. They know that they are telling lie after lie after lie. They also know that if they continue telling this simple lie long enough and with conviction, the world will come to believe them. They learned this from the masters in propaganda who found that defaming Jews works well and the people will believe the lies told about Jews. Before them the Christians and Muslims also learned that blaming the Jew works and they will assist those who now wish to defame the Jews, defame Israel. Jews have been defamed by the best and we are still here and we are coming home to stay. There are Arabs who say that they just need to out-wait the Jews just as they did the Greeks, Romans, Crusaders, British and the rest. They believe they are going to out-wait the Jews who waited almost two-thousand years for their miraculous return to their homelands. How old is Islam again, it was founded in about 610 making it about fourteen-hundred-eight years old and the Jews waited two-thousand years to return to Eretz Yisroel, good luck out-waiting the most patient people on the planet. Islam claims they count in centuries, Jews count in millennia.

Where Are the Environmentalists?

 

The environmental movement members are the first people to scream about any and almost every threat to the environment. Oh, right, I forgot, the Arab Palestinians get a free pass on everything and only those accusations which can be leveled on Israel get any attention. They gather a large pile of wood chips, set them alight, and then cover them to prevent them burning completely. Eventually this causes a block forcing the wood chips within the pile to soak in energy as they are placed under heat and the gathered smoke and carbon dioxide from the above layers and they smolder becoming charcoal briquettes. This works but produces great plumes of smoke throwing large amounts of contaminants into the air causing pollution to such an extent that many people in the area need to wear masks to filter the air they breathe. Below we have a four-picture montage showing the procedure. This production is carried out seven days a week almost nonstop all year round. The effects of the area are immeasurable. For some reason there have been absolutely no environmentalists protesting this primitive and heavily polluting method of producing charcoal. Modern methods place the wood chips inside an airtight container, fill it with carbon-dioxide gas, and then apply heat, making briquettes with minimal pollution. With all the financial assistance the Palestinian Authority has received, hundreds of millions reaching into billions of Euros, one would think that they could have updated their equipment and permitted them to continue without posing a threat to not only the air, but when they wash the area down and allow the water to seep into the groundwater, they threaten the water supply for the entire area. And then the Palestinian Authority has the audacity to complain that Israel has not secured the groundwater and prevented it being polluted.

But now Hamas has decided to use pollution as a cover for breaching their border in order to infiltrate terrorist cells into Israel. Below are a set of pictures which depict the steps used by Hamas this past Friday, April 6, 2018, to set-up their smokescreen under which they rushed the border fence in multiple places. The number of tires they set on fire was quite large, well into the thousands, and they burned for hours causing a great plume of thick black smoke. Had Israel committed the same environmental criminal act with the purpose of having the smoke disperse the rioters across the border, you can bet that there would have been environmental activists screaming and calling for prosecution of the Israelis responsible for this great crime against Gaia, their Earth goddess. But this crime against Gaia was committed by Hamas and that makes everything just copacetic. What the leftist extremists have decided is that any act, no matter how criminal or extreme, is permissible as long as it is used to work towards the destruction of Israel. Hamas has sworn to destroy Israel no matter how long it takes them. What is strange is that the world acts as if Israel has any rule or claim to Gaza, the area which Hamas and Islamic Jihad rules. Israel handed all of Gaza to the Palestinian Authority releasing any claims Israel had turning it completely over to the Arabs. The Palestinian Authority lost Gaza in a coup with Hamas taking control, Hamas and not Israel. Israel does not occupy Gaza releasing all claims to the territory in August of 2005 pulling the last IDF personnel out by early September of that year. What we are witnessing is a series of protests by Gazans against a foreign nation hoping the world will hold that nation responsible for their nation being mismanaged by its corrupt rulers. The air pollution was the idea of their terror masters and they used it to have civilians rush the fence with terrorists hiding amongst the people in hopes of infiltrating Israel. That is an attempt to place agents within a foreign nation with hopes of committing terror acts in the future. That is an act of war.

The reality of such operations will soon be part and parcel of events which will be confronting President Trump and the people of the United States. Leftists within the United States are very probably going to protest and make great amount of ruckus when the illegal immigrant caravan reaches the American-Mexican border sometime in the next month. This group will not likely be burning tires and throwing Molotov cocktails or shooting at American Border Guards. They will be, however, invading the United States by crossing the border, very likely en-masse, attempting to gain illegal entrance and take up residence. Their end destination will likely be one of the many sanctuary cities where they will be protected from ICE agents. The coming confrontation, which will most likely occur on the California border, will prove interesting, as it will be a direct challenge to President Trump’s immigration policies. Should President Trump manage to place the military on the border, as he has stated is his intention, and this group is apprehended and returned to their countries of origin, then it is likely the next immigrant convoy will use more violent methods eventually reaching the level which Israel is facing with Hamas when the next combination is planned. The group behind the immigrant caravan is Pueblo Sin Fronteras. Pueblo Sin Fronteras proposes to remake the world with no borders by which they mean that anybody from the third world should be permitted to move to the industrialized world and live off the wealth of that world. Their world would have no borders and probably be ruled by a benevolent dictator who automatically understands the desires and needs of the people. Actually, we are willing to bet they have not figured out exactly how their world will function once they have succeeded in erasing the borders of all the nations. They probably would propose that they be permitted to continue to repair this broken world where there are rich nations and poor nations and that if only the rich nations would give their wealth to the poor nations, then everybody would be equal. The problem is that they are probably correct in that everybody would be equal, they would be equally destitute and starving as once they have destroyed the successful nations and given all their wealth to the poor nations where the dictators would take the cash and run, then nobody would have any wealth and the engines which created that wealth would be destroyed. But that is not their problem; they just want to make the world equal and matching their vision of complete and total borderless perfection. We wish President Trump luck, not just with this attempted invasion, but also with all the ensuing ones which the leftists will make sure continues as quickly as they can be arranged.

 

There have been some deaths and possibly hundreds of injuries with some actually requiring serious treatment. This is the only news which is guaranteed to be broadcast with great rapidity making appear as if Israel was shooting hundreds of Gazans per hour when the IDF has only shot at those either shooting at Israeli forces, those destroying border monitoring equipment along the border fence and those actually attempting to breach the border through destroying sections of the border fence or scaling the border fence. Hamas had been hoping that the first day or this past Friday that they might have enabled a mass rush on the fence intending to cause a large breach through which to have hundreds of Gazans to rush through with armed terrorists hidden within the mass of people. Hamas may still manage to force just such an event which will leave Israel with a serious decision to make. There will not be time for deliberating, debating the finer points, measuring consequences against potential harms of not acting and the multitudinous ramifications facing the IDF and the people of Israel. Common sense, something which has been lacking from the discussions of the entire situation, tells any serious person that no nation can permit a belligerent neighbor to flood across their border and even less so to have armed insurrectionists hidden within the flood of bodies who have plans for harming as many citizens of their nation once the infiltrations have been accomplished. Additionally, the riotous crowd has been whipped into a blood rage and will literally tear apart any Israelis they come upon if not prevented. This was made very apparent when two Israelis made a wrong turn and ended up in Nablus several years ago. Palestinian police placed them in a jail cell for safety and then fled the station when the mob approached. They flooded the station, took the keys, opened the cell and literally tore the two men’s bodies apart and called one man’s wife so she could hear his death screams. The crowd outside roared with approval as one of the people inside the jail leaned out a second floor window showing them his two blood-soaked hands (graphic picture). Imagine hundreds of crazed people looking for victims coming across a small farming kibbutz, which are near the Gaza border, where there may be four or five families residing.

 

The commanders of the IDF had better have already met with Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman and Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Tzipi Hotovely and whomever else might have anything to contribute to the conversation and have met with them weeks ago when they first had an inkling of what was coming. The decision as to what the IDF soldiers are to do should a wave of humanity rush the border breaching the border fence pouring into Israel and start destroying everything they reach and swarming the troops themselves cannot be decided at the moment. This must not be a decision left to the commanders in the field, as any decision for such a threat must have been reached through deliberation by people who, as they say, get paid the ‘Big Bucks’ to make such decisions. Further, the troops who are manning the border during these riots, facing the several and various threats, should have had as much training for the many threats defining what is expected from them in as many of the different scenarios with which they could have to deal. Still, the coverage to date of the border offensive being mounted by Hamas, and that is what this is, an act of aggression by Hamas with the intent of breaching the border with Israel setting a murderous mob of thousands of people set on causing maximum damage and death to Israel and any Israelis they can find, has been next to atrocious as the only item they care to mention is the number of dead and injured as reported by Hamas. There has been little if any mention of the rioters throwing Molotov Cocktails, using slings to fire stones at lethal speeds, the rushing of the fence by mobs which required rubber bullets to disperse or the numbers of terrorists who have worked their way to the fence to destroy Israeli security devices and to shoot at the IDF positions. They have avoided mentioning that almost all those killed were known terrorists even when Hamas admitted that ten of those killed the initial day were from their military wing. There has been no mention of the little flag waving where they planted the Arab Palestinian flag (actually a modified Jordanian flag) along with a Nazi twisted cross, the swastika, in a field which apparently was invisible to much of the media outside the Israeli media (see image below). The media has decided that they are going to play the ‘peaceful protester’ angle to their maximum ability. The big news over the past week reported has been that approximately twenty Arabs have been killed by the IDF who were conducting peaceful protests. These protests are anything but peaceful and rioting assaults on the Israel border fence would be a better description. But what has the media ignored while focused so intently on the Israel Gaza border?

There has been a small amount of intense violence somewhere else in the Middle East. At a minimum, one-hundred-fifty people, mostly women and children, have been murdered in an attack on their city of Douma, just a little east of Damascus. This city of civilians and little else was bombed and struck with artillery. It is heavily suspected from the types and conditions found amongst the casualties that multiple kinds of chemical weapons including chlorine gas amongst other agents with suspicions that amongst the mix was Sarin nerve agent. This was indicative in the bodies found in a number of basements where the people had foam around their mouths and their bodies were in unnatural positions. There have been other reports by sources that airplanes dropped barrels of chemical materials on the city and its residents. More than a thousand civilians have shown affects by inhalation of chemical substances and are suffering from severe suffocation. The United States State Department responded that they were investigating whether or not Bashir al-Assad had again used chemical weapons and if affirmed, they would hold Russia to be accountable and should expect a response from the international community. That will be the day, but perhaps they would get a dressing down by United States Ambassador Nikki Haley. But even this atrocity was not sufficient to replace the two dead on the Gaza border as the lead story in the nightly news. Often it makes one wonder how much could happen around the world which would be ignored simply to concentrate on the potential for Israel to defend their border from an attack. Possibly Turkey, under orders from President Erdoğan, is sweeping across northern areas of Syria in a genocidal cleansing of the Kurdish region going city by city. All the violence in Syria and the unreported violence against the northern regions of Iraq where Iraqi military, with IRGC troops assisting, have been pushing the Kurdish forces from the regions they took from the Islamic State. But quick, we need to go see if Israel has done anything contemptable the media can report with breathless exasperation.

These riots which will be continuing through the middle of May, peaking every Friday afternoons after services and the Imams call for violence. The Hamas intention is to have the levels of violence ramp up higher each week hoping that it will result in a mass crossing of the Israeli border forcing open warfare which they believe will prevent the moving of the American embassy to Jerusalem. Some security experts have pegged the date which Hamas has chosen for this invasion of Israel to be May 14, 2018, which is the proposed day the United States is to announce their embassy move. Their hope is such a threat of violence will have the United States postpone the official announcement of their embassy move. One can only hope that President Trump is made of stern enough stuff to foil such a move by making the announcement despite the Hamas threats. As we stated in our earlier article, we believe that Hamas will utilize the advantage of larger numbers which appear, as scheduled, every Friday to attempt their mass infiltration and initiate their war against Israel on that previous Friday, May 11, 2018. If such should come to pass, the world will soon be in full throat screaming how dare Israel take upon itself the right to defend their border. What is lost is that Israel abandoned all claims to the entirety of Gaza. Every Israeli citizen was relocated within Israel, every military structure was destroyed, the green houses were left completely intact and functional, and every Israeli military and government official was pulled out and the rule over Gaza was given over to the Palestinian Authority. This was declared to actually be the precursor Palestinian Arab State which would prove their intent and ability to have self-rule. This experiment failed unbelievably as within two years the Palestinian Authority had lost the entirety of Gaza to Hamas terrorist group in a coup. This caused Israel to impose the blockade on Hamas ruled Gaza, not on Gaza or its people, though they did suffer minor inconvenience from the blockade as it also limited their fishing areas. The wars were forced upon Israel by Hamas and Islamic Jihad attacks with rockets, tunnels, and other attacks. Hamas currently rules Gaza and could declare themselves to be a nation and Israel would have no way of preventing their claim. Gaza is an area which currently is ruled by terrorists. Israel does not occupy Gaza nor does Israel have any influence beyond checking imports to prevent for military dual use and actual weapons, particularly heavy weapons, from being imported. The United Nations has ruled on the Israeli restricting of imports to Gaza and imposing a naval blockade on Gaza and found it to meet the requirements making it legal. The truth is that Gaza is a terrorist operation base which has used the majority of aid and funds from any and every source to attempt and destroy Israel denying Gazans any normalcy. There is a humanitarian crisis in Gaza caused by Hamas and Islamic Jihad. The cement, steel rebar and concrete imported to rebuild apartments for Gazans has been instead diverted to build bunkers and tunnels including infiltration tunnels into Israel which, when detected, are destroyed by Israel as they are a security threat to the Israeli people. Each destroyed tunnel you have read or heard about in the news could have built three schools or clinics or could have rebuilt an apartment building. Despite the obvious diverting of these provisions, the European Union insists on Israel permitting additional provisions to rebuild the apartments knowing it will mostly be utilized to rebuild the infiltration tunnels and not to the advantage of the Gazan people. Gaza is a foreign entity which threatens the existence of the nation of Israel. If the rioting Gazans attempt to crash the Israeli border and flood into Israel, it would be within the right of nation’s self-defense for Israel to take all and any necessary steps to stem the invasion by these aggressor forces including live fire by military forces. The IDF would be within their legal rights to simply mow down the people as they cross into Israel to protect the Israeli population from this threat. The world will howl, but this is exactly what Hamas, Islamic Jihad and their terror compatriots’ desire. Their entire hope in these riots is to have at least one, if not more, incidents where there are mass casualties which they can approach the world demanding that Israel be forced to allow millions of Arabs “return” to their homes and take up their rightful citizenship as Israelis. Their intent is to destroy the Jewish State by forcing an Arab majority which can vote Israel into being another Arab state. Should they take control of Israel; the world can expect genocide of any remaining Jews. This is what the IDF may be forced to prevent as the Arabs attempt to infiltrate Israel and once inside claiming citizenship as returning refugees from the initial Arab Israeli war in 1948. Most of these infiltrators who might breach the border are under seventy years old which means they were not born in 1948, but why allow such little facts get in the way of destroying the only Jewish State making it into yet another Arab state.

 

Of course, if we were permitted to decide, Hamas would be toppled along with Islamic Jihad and the rest of the oppressive overlords in Gaza and the people there permitted to live in peace wherever they prefer. We would even bet Israel would be glad to offer them the same deal which was to be given the infiltrators, a relocation bonus making any move easier on them allowing them to start a new and free future wherever they choose outside of Israel. Israel might even offer to supervise democratic election to elect Arab governance in Gaza where they could live in a semiautonomous region protected from foreign infiltrations by terrorists or other threats by Israel and to live in peace and security. A similar deal might be made for the Palestinian towns in the Shomron once the world allows the removal of the Palestinian Authority who has frozen elections since 2005. Mahmoud Abbas is serving his thirteenth year of his five-year term he was elected to in 2005. Perhaps somebody might give President Trump a heads up on this idea, they do not even need give us credit, we do not mind. Honest. Meanwhile, Hamas is destroying the environment and the leading hypocritical environmentalists could not care less as it is all in the cause of destroying the Zionist Entity.

Border Threats in the United States and Israel

 

Let us talk about the less threatening border. This is not to lessen the magnitude of the walking threat approaching the southern border of the United States. The caravan of over a thousand “undocumented marchers” who intend to mostly cross into the United States will officially become criminal entrants crossing the southern border within the month if their pace continues as it has since entering Mexico from Guatemala. Commentary over a BuzzFeed article written for Townhall by Timothy Meads was our source for this article and can be read here. Obviously, these soon to be “undocumented immigrants,” alias illegal aliens, as they cross the Mexico-American border whether they attempt to cross at an monitored border requesting asylum, as some have expressed their intentions, or if they attempt to cross clandestinely avoiding detection and making it to one of the many sanctuary cities or if a large group attempts to overwhelm a crossing point by rushing the border, any case will pose some form of challenge for the Trump administration. As the latest spending omnibus bill which again spent far more money than any responsible budget would have permitted, still did not decide to budget for the completion or even building a fair portion of President Trump’s Secure Border Wall, the border wall will not be erected by the time this caravan of people reaches the American border. One wonders if perhaps they will take a page from the Hamas Gaza confrontation manual and all rush the border at a single point in an attempt to overwhelm any Border Guards stationed at that point. How will the United States Border Guards react if they face a thousand people rushing their post on the border? Would they shoot the leading few in hopes to have the rest stop out of fear? Would they act as the Mexican Border Agent described in the article?

Taking a drag from her cigarette, a Mexican immigration agent looked out toward a caravan of migrants that grew larger with each step they took on the two-lane highway.
When the agent, who’d covered her uniform with an orange and white shawl, learned that the Central American migrants heading her way numbered more than 1,000, she took off for the restaurant across the street.
“I’m going to have a relaxing Coke,” she told BuzzFeed News.

We have to grant her that in her case as a Mexican border agent knowing that these migrants are headed for the United States, she figured it was none of her or Mexico’s business. The reality is that the United States neighbors to the south reaching far beyond Mexico to include numerous other nations, they all gladly have members of families to leave and make the long trek to the United States knowing full well that they will send back money to their family which works as another form of unfettered United States foreign aid which is free of any government controls such as financial pressures applied by the State Department. Some nations find the relatives sending back money to families back home often these funds accumulate to be in excess of direct American foreign aid. Still, President Trump had campaigned taking a strong position for ending the free and open border policies of the previous administration. President Trump campaigned on building an impassable wall and placing thousands more Border Agents securing the border. Well, President Trump, your first border challenge approaches.

Fortunately, President Trump’s Border Police will not be facing armed enemy approaching the border with intents of infiltration. The immigrant caravan will not be hurling large stones, Molotov cocktails, pipe bombs and other explosives at the Border Police as the Hamas “peaceful” demonstrators have from Gaza. The caravan of immigrants will not be hiding numerous members with AK-47s who will hide and attempt to shoot the United States Border Agents like Hamas terrorists did with the IDF soldiers (Israeli Defense Force) during the recent border clashes. From what we read, the majority of those in the immigrant caravan are planning on peaceably crossing the border, turning themselves over to Border Patrol and the American authorities hoping to take advantage of what they believe is American hospitality and liberal refugee qualifications allowing them to receive some form of amnesty as seekers of political or other asylum. Still, the whole confrontation, and that is what this is by any definition you choose, the whole thing could turn horribly wrong with the simplest of misunderstandings or if some of the immigrants in the convoy decide they prefer a confrontation. A single firearm discharge could cause a hail of bullets in response no matter who fired the first bullet. We can hope, and more than likely the Border Agents are well enough trained, that even a firearm discharge would not become a hail of bullets, but it would make everything very tense until the source of the discharge was found and addressed with appropriate actions. The problem an event such as a firearm discharge creates a situation where what happens in the immediate moments afterward can be very confusing and thus complicated. We can only hope the crossing of those in the immigrant caravan goes without incident.

 

In Israel along the Gaza border, the situation is very different. Here we based our commentary on a number of articles about the events from last Friday, March 30, 2018, and on this Arutz Sheva article. We have already seen from the continuation of the violent Hamas sponsored protests duped as March of Return that Hamas is intent on building the pressure. Where the continuing protests have been comparatively less violent than last Friday, but come this Friday, April 6, 2018, will be ramped up to at least if not a higher pitch with more violence. The reason we know that this is coming is because the Friday sermons are usually attended by more people as many shops close on Friday afternoons. This provides the Imams with a higher than usual emotional level for their sermons and these often are used by Hamas, Islamic Jihad, the Palestinian authority, the PLO and many other groups including across much of the Arab world and Iran, to inflame their sermons with calls for violence against their enemies. In Iran, these sermons result in the great numbers of crowds gathering to chant “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” as well as sometimes “Death to the Jews.” In Gaza and the areas under the Palestinian Authority, these sermons result in rioting, attacks and increased terrorism. This added to the already continuing violence on the border is why we expect the rioting along the Gaza border to be more violent and threatening than the initial violence from last Friday. The media will be advised where to stand when reporting from Gaza as to where to stand to get the best shots of the peaceful protests and then their photos and stories will be edited and checked by Hamas moderators before they are filed. Any media not following Hamas protocols will have their permissions to report from Gaza revoked, if they are fortunate, and possibly worse. But what is the final goal of Hamas and Islamic Jihad with these protests and the ramping of violence as time progresses? That is a good question which requires an answer.

 

This is where the information in the Arutz Sheva article was helpful as it validated something we feared. Hamas reacted just as horrifically, if not more so, to President Trump announcing the moving of the American Embassy to Jerusalem and recognizing Jerusalem as the capital city of Israel. We agree with the Arutz Sheva security source that Hamas could easily intend to continue to ramp the violence forcing a new war upon Israel. Hamas and Islamic Jihad have been rearmed to a level well above their levels of armaments they had at the start of the war in 2014 or 2012. Iran has also promised to keep Hamas armed to a level necessary for a full confrontation with Israel should they use any munitions in actions against Israel or other opponents. Apparently, the thinking is Hamas might initiate border violations with armed terrorists using tunnels and by crashing the fence using masses of bodies largely civilians allowing the armed terrorists to be concealed within the mass. The impression is that Hamas will make the great push forcing a potential war on May 14, 2018, to coincide with and overshadow the news of the American Embassy officially being moved to Jerusalem. This is where we come to a slightly different conclusion than the experts and Arutz Sheva.

 

Our date which Hamas and Islamic Jihad will use to initiate another war with Israel, if this is their intent, will be Friday, May 11, 2018. This date being a Friday will coincide with a natural day of increased activity and thus provide the numbers of civilians which they can utilize to facilitate their invading southern Israel. The reason behind our reasoning goes beyond just it being a Friday, there is more to it than just that one fairly large reason. By starting a war the Friday before the announcing of the moving of the American embassy could possibly force President Trump, we guarantee under advisement of the State Department, to postpone the announcement until a more appropriate and peaceful time when there isn’t any war ongoing. We can also guarantee that there will be one gentleman who will fight against the State Department demanding that President Trump complete the transfer of the embassy as scheduled, and that will be his new Security Advisor, John Bolton. Should Hamas and allies make such a mistake, we can only hope that the IDF is permitted to perform a cleansing of Hamas, Islamic Jihad and all the other terror and criminal elements and remove the oppressive rulers from over the people of Gaza. Then, once they have been removed and sent into exile or prison, then the people of Gaza will be free to leave and restart their lives wherever they choose. As reported in the Jerusalem Post, “More than 90 percent of Gaza Strip residents want to leave because of Hamas, Fatah spokesman Osama Qawassmeh said on Wednesday.” We are somewhat less enthusiastic as we believe it would be merely three out of five, or sixty percent at a minimum. Should Hamas press the violence to a level where Israel has no other alternative but to completely decapitate the leadership and remove those who have been oppressing the people under their heel, we can only hope that President Trump sticks to his schedule and that Israel manages to complete their operations and liberate the Arabs from their oppressors within the weekend allowing for full media coverage of the American embassy move. Hopefully, Israeli forces can restrict any success that the terrorist entities attempt along the border to such an extent that any infiltration will be limited and caught ending any threats these border threats may bring. They recently prevented an attack with a Kornet missile planned by Hamas to sink an Israeli Naval vessel. Reports of this arrest and preventions were covered by Haaretz, Jerusalem Post, Times of Israel and, of course, Arutz Sheva. We like reporting good news and hope that the American embassy move goes smoothly and on schedule and that, any attempts Hamas intends will be thwarted and the people of Gaza will soon be freed from their oppressive governance.

 

We intend to end on an up note, so here below is a quote from another Arutz Sheva article, this time by the respected Dr. Mordechai Kedar who has contacts and resources we can only dream about. The title of his article is, “Are there Arabs who like Israel? The answer is a resounding yes.” The article is full of interesting facts and decently good news.

I am going to tell just one story. Every few weeks a group of 3-4 people phone me from somewhere in the Gaza Strip and beg me to tell Israel to re-conquer the region, because their lives are Hell since the day in 2007 when Hamas pushed out the PA to take control of Gaza. In the past they had worked in Israel, earned decent wages and provided for their families. Israel as a state and the Israeli people treated them well, showed them respect and usually paid them fair wages for their work.
