Gaza Screaming for Attention

The Hamas supporters, approximately one-tenth the population, if that, are still rioting and causing damage to Israel. You probably have not seen that in the news and that is good. When a two year old throws a temper tantrum, there are two ways of handling this to prevent further outbursts. The first is to ignore them and the second is to have everyone in the room point at them and laugh for about a whole minute and then ignore the rest of the tantrum. The news media used to follow every single cry from Gaza as another proof of Israeli intransigence. This time they found those cries attached to extreme destruction which could not be excused, thus the media tired quickly and stopped their coverage. This did not prevent Hamas, and their supporting terrorists of Islamic Jihad, from continuing to fly kites and balloons with incendiary devices into Israel burning fields of wheat, forests, game preserves and areas of communities. The total of the damages is in the tens of millions of dollars and climbing. But what is driving these terror attacks is their complete misunderstanding of the media. These terrorists whose activities against Israel have been covered as a holy and wonderful attack against the mean Israeli goliath are now confused and believe that if they cause sufficient damage, then the media will return to cover them. What they cannot accept is that the world has basically had it with the Palestinian Arabs and their violence. The reason why is obvious, but allow us to elaborate.

 

The world has come to realize exactly what the cost of Islamic terrorist violence is and how it takes a cost from everyone, even those who are not immediately affected. The spread of Islamic terrorist violence throughout the world has educated them far more than anything Israelis could ever have said. This rise in violence has given rise to an awakening that perhaps allowing open immigration from the Islamic world may not be the greatest of ideas. The proof comes from the lady most responsible for this influx which brought the violence with it. Now, even Angela Merkel has now realized her error in inviting terror into her nation. A nine hour summit was held in Brussels which included a declaration which included an agreement on the return of illegal immigrants to the countries from which they arrived. This remarkable turnaround can only be explained by the awakening of the European leaders that perhaps some peoples have not reached a level of civilization to live within and under an open democratic society. Unfortunately, for some their awakening still has not permitted them to provide an ounce of sympathy for Israeli actions to counter terrorism. A group of such people exist within the European Union including Federica Mogherini as well as the groups of European Union and other European representatives who attempted to enter and block the destruction of an Arab, illegally built, settlement partially financed by the European Union. This outpost has no electricity, no water, no plumbing, no sewage treatment system and no roads connecting it to anywhere. If it were an outpost built by young Jewish Zionists, the Europeans would be leading the charge to have it destroyed along with the United Nations. In this case, the United Nations is right beside the European Union demanding Israel recognize this shanty-town (see image below) and build the infrastructure it currently lacks. What is remarkable is how when an illegal Arab outpost is to be demolished, the world screams with outrage; but when a Jewish outpost is to be demolished, you can hear the crickets chirping and little else. If you ever needed proof that the hatred of Israel which drives these outbursts of rage, the difference on how Jewish and Arab outposts are treated by the wider world is about all that is required.

We have often pointed out the reaction since even before Israel declared her independence that was driven by attempts to undo and prevent and then destroy the Jewish State is beyond outrageous. The world had a moment of sanity between 1917 with the Balfour Declaration and the 1922 San Remo Conference which codified Balfour where they recognized the right of the Jewish People to their ancient homelands. This brief and momentary outbreak of sanity ended by 1925 and was officially dead with the Peel Commission in 1936 which attempted to relegate the Jews to split the little land with the majority of the land to go to the Arabs (see map below) between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea. Even this division of the land was completely unacceptable to the Arab League and to the Mufti of Jerusalem who from Berlin rejected the deal. Their problem, the Jews were still to be permitted any land. From the beginning, the Arabs have had a single view towards Israel, it must not be permitted to exist with the Jews having any power to rule or influence the governance. Israel may only exists permitting that the Arabs are permitted to have complete and total rule and the Jews allowed to remain as Dhimmis until whatever time the Muslims decide they must convert or else.

The Europeans were sympathetic to the Arab position but also were stuck with their promises to the Jews, the Zionist Congress. Still, if Israel had waited until the world was comfortable with their declaring independence, we would still be waiting. There is a lesson in there somewhere for the Kurds, may they find the courage to declare independence before it is too late and they are erased from history. Meanwhile, Hamas cannot understand why the world is not denouncing Israel and supporting their destructive rioting and their launching of incendiary devices into the accursed Israel. The world will only support Hamas launching devices to burn and explode inside Israel for a limited amount of time and then they tire and return to their day-to-day lives and news cycles. For Britain, there are the members of the Royal Family, and for others there is the World Cup and all forms of distractions. The other problem Hamas faces is that the Israeli response was moderated and limited to targeting terror structures and actual terrorists. Hamas also damned themselves when they admitted that fifty of the sixty-two were their operatives (see video below) and later Islamic Jihad claimed at least another three were their operatives. Additionally, the Hamas official admits that over half of those killed in past confrontations with Israel were terror operatives. When Hamas uses the word operatives, what they mean are terrorists or their officers who send the terrorists.

 

 

This high percentage of shooting terrorists and so few of their accompanying human shields comes from a secret new program which can examine video and discern from the way the people move and other telling acts and trends of motion determine which people are carrying weapons, explosive devices and other items for the breach and destruction of the border fence allowing snipers to only fire at those whose actions pose an actual threat. This includes also highlighting individuals from a crowd of those who are attacking through their actions such as throwing grenades or incendiary devices, launching terror kites or balloons with explosives or incendiary devices attached. This included the reputedly innocent nurse who was targeted by the IDF as she was throwing grenades, innocently, of course. The reason her picture and the reporting that she was innocent and shot simply out of hatred and vengeance got around the world twenty times or more before the IDF could review everything surrounding the shooting and present the reality was best covered by this saying by Winston Churchill which states, “A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.” Unfortunately, Winston Churchill lived before the internet which is why we had to claim it circled the world at least twenty times before the truth could be presented. This was amongst the series of news reports which Hamas orchestrated which included a poor infant who died from a heart defect which she suffered from birth, but her death was attributed to the teargas that Israel was using. What struck me as odd is why any parent would bring a child into a war zone, especially if they had health issues. The first item which Hamas attempted to garner a good headline backfired as they sent a seven-year-old girl across the border to confront the IDF probably believing that they would just shoot first and ask questions later. The IDF instead, cared for her, gave her water and returned her safe and sound to her parents, imagine that. This is not the first time such has happened as seen in the video below where a Palestinian father tries to get his child killed.

 

 

Hamas has reached the end of their use by date on this current round of terrorism unless they grossly ramp up their attacks. Should they start launching hundreds of rockets further and further into Israel day after day, that will wake the world media because they know that Israel will have to respond eventually. They will wait, pencils in the ready, holding their paper and not reporting anything as the rockets rain down on Israelis. Then the fateful day will come. Israel will respond. Now the headlines will come, Israel attacks Gaza moving in with tanks supported by fighter jets bombing targets. The article will go on for three to five paragraphs attacking the Israeli engagement pretending that the entire attack by Israel was completely unprovoked. Finally, in the next to the last paragraph, as many people actually read the final paragraph, there will be the reporting that for the past weeks Hamas had been launching rockets into Israel. That is not an important fact to the mainstream media, as it does not match their politics of Israel evil and Hamas the second coming of the American founding fathers. That has been evidenced by the reporting this time as well but Israel had reports and actual video proving that they were acting responsibly and not targeting innocents. Add in that the video above with the Hamas spokesperson admitting, adversely to the media hyperventilating over the sixty-two people shot, in the video that fifty of them were Hamas terrorists. This rebuke of the media storyline that the Israelis were gunning down people without cause by Hamas sent many in the media packing and after about three or four more reports by the media that Israel had murdered an innocent, turning out that the innocent was far from innocent, did not help the Hamas image. The final straw came when Hamas rejected vital and needed medical aid provided by Israel despite reported shortages which the media had highlighted. That is the way to make friends, have them report that medical provisions are almost completely depleted and then turn away a few thousand pounds of medical provisions because the Jews sent it. That ended Hamas having any further credit with the media and they will not regain favor with any luck this time around. So, all we can say is it is about time the media realized they were being played, and let us hope they return more wary and critical before jumping at the first release they receive from Hamas.

Hamas and Their Who Did Israel Kill Today Ploy

Filed under: Israel — qwertster @ 1:01 AM

The first claim came when Hamas informed the media of a story they were bound to jump on immediately, after all, it was one of their own, a “photo journalist” who had been struck down by those presumably kill-crazed IDF soldiers. Their snipers intentionally murdered a reporter wearing a “Press” flack jacket clearly marking him, even through all the smoke from the ten-thousand burning tires, as a noncombatant. Then, after the world had heard the breaking news stories throughout Europe, the United States, Canada, and likely the remainder of the world, those listed among their main targets for the propaganda, the real story emerged. The so-called reporter only did reporting the Hamas way and now he became the Hamas story. He had been shot for a reason and it was further reported that this “photo journalist” was a Hamas member and Murtaja held the rank of Neqqib, or Captain, in Hamas. But it is very likely that to this day there are millions who can tell you that the Israelis mistakenly or on purpose shot a representative of the media and far fewer who can report the rest of the story, that this presumed reporter was in actuality a high-ranking member of Hamas. Sure, he also worked as a “photo journalist” plying the media with slanted stories and pictures to match as the reporters from the mainstream international media schmooze with one another at high-priced bistros along the Tel Aviv beachfront taking in the sights and relying on “photo journalists” like Murtaja to write their stories and provide the pictures to match. In reality, Murtaja was no more than a ranking member of the Hamas propaganda arm and not an innocent on the front lines doing a tough job for informing the world with honest reporting.

 

A while after that story played out came the next one. Hamas are more than simple terrorists; they are masters at playing the media and making it sing their tunes day and night. This time it was the baby named Layla al Ghandour. Italy’s largest newspaper, Il Corriere della Sera, which printed her photo on the front page and Al-Jazeera reported that, “Layla al Ghandour is the face of the massacre in Gaza.” What a story, an innocent, small, vibrant, healthy eight-month-old Palestinian baby girl with her whole life ahead of her was snuffed out by that evil Israel lethal tear gas. When we first heard this story, one we had almost been expecting as it is a canard of the Hamas and PA use of media against Israel, we immediately asked, who in their right mind takes any eight-month-old to the front lines of a confrontation knowing there will be tear gas, burning tire smoke and a thousand other things which are unhealthy for an adult and worse for an infant. But then we remembered that the Gazans are paid $200 for attending the rioting and $500 if the family member is injured, possibly even $3,000 if they lost one of their members, and one can predict that this family received a bonus for the death being an infant. In all fairness, we need also point out that in response to a CBS Evening News interviewing Prime Minister Netanyahu stating that Hamas was paying people plus pushing women and children with the hope of getting casualties to push on the media; NBC Nightly News reporter Daniel Medina tweeted “Netanyahu continues to throw out conspiracy theories to US media. Reporters must push back against these types of baseless claims with zero evidence to support them.” Well, when the entirety of the story about poor little Layla al Ghandour finally emerged, it sure looks as if Hamas was doing exactly as claimed. The real story came the next day when a physician from Gaza told the Associated Press the day after she died that the child had a pre-existing illness and he did not believe her death was caused by Israeli (tear) gases. As Giulio Meotti reports later in the article, “The next World Press Photo award is ready for Haitham Imad, the photographer who has immortalized Layla in her mother’s arms.”

 

The latest story of the Israeli murderers on the Gaza border revolves around Razan Al-Najar, a nurse presumably shot as she tended the wounded. Now we hear of a twenty-one-year-old volunteer medic, according to a witness we are told, was shot as she ran toward the fortified border fence, east of the south Gaza city of Khan Younis, in a bid to reach a casualty. We used a Reuters article but there are plenty more from all around the globe. We are willing to bet that very few bother to point out that this death, like virtually, if not, all deaths reportedly caused by IDF fire, are investigated be the IDF in a very transparent way. Every piece of information garnered is provided anyone who requests such, but almost nobody cares to ask. If Nurse Razan Al-Najar was killed as an illegal act, then we will also hear, provided we seek out the information, that the IDF soldier who took that shot and any officer which ordered them to shoot will all be facing disciplinary actions which can scale from an article of reprimand to a public trial for capital murder. For those who doubt this truth, please read this and realize that the IDF does not tolerate any questionable shootings. When the results of the IDF probe into her death are complete, does anybody believe that their results will be broadcast to the world in anywhere near the level of the current screaming from every hilltop coverage of this shooting as reported by Hamas? Of course not, as their results will be buried deep inside the papers and never reach the airwaves unless it is found to be an illegal shooting and an IDF soldier and commander are facing charges. There were some who also reported that there had just been rifle fire and a grenade fired into the IDF positions on the border but this was usually mentioned well after the coverage of Razan Al-Najar, a nurse, being shot despite wearing her bright, white uniform.

Perhaps the time is long overdue to discuss the realities of the Hamas rioting and attempts to utilize human waves lead by their Hamas terrorist members to breach the border in the hope of reaching Israeli civilian towns and kibbutzim and to, as the Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar stated, “eat the livers of those besieging” as well as “tear out their hearts from their bodies.” As we have reported, the rioters and especially their Hamas leaders were given maps showing the closest Israeli civilian population point for each of the areas with directions on how to best reach these places in the least amount of time. That is what the IDF soldiers are attempting to prevent. They are defending their homeland from an invasion force intent on murdering mostly civilians, not defeating the opposing military. Hamas and virtually every Gazan know the rules about the border. There is a three-hundred meter military no-go zone on the Gazan side of the border fence and anybody entering that zone becomes a legal target. This is one of the rules which Hamas always quotes to the media as proof that they reside in a prison situation and that Israel are the prison guards, and they make very mean and angry guards. There is seldom, if ever, any mention that there exists a five-hundred meter no-go zone on the Egyptian border and that the Egyptians mowed clear a space this wide along their border in the middle of Rafah destroying hundred upon hundreds of homes, businesses and other structures (see image below). But it is not the five-hundred meter Egyptian zone where buildings were razed but the three-hundred meter Israeli zone which covers field areas without structures that the world complains over. It is not the closed Egyptian Rafah crossing but the Israeli crossings where tons of aid are delivered daily that the world claim makes Gaza a prison. There is a reason why the aid does not always help the people, and that is Hamas itself. Even when there is no conflict actively engaged, Hamas takes most of the aid and divides it between themselves and those who are their greatest enablers. The biggest story is why so few apartments have been rebuilt despite building supplies being provided at least twice by European Union and an equal number of times through the United Nations and once by another aid group but the tunnels keep being built, destroyed, rebuilt and new paths built unceasingly.

The Gazans know that entering the three-hundred meter zone makes them automatically a target as the rules of the border are concerned. Israel left Gaza in August of 2005 and it was a freely open area until the summer of 2007 when Hamas took over in a coup killing large numbers of PA security fighters and Fatah and PA officers who fell off of high buildings repeatedly over the following few months after Hamas took over. Hamas had claim to having won the election, but Mahmoud Abbas refused to allow their victory to replace him. Hamas took Gaza as their consolation prize. This was when Israel imposed their blockade which still permits all of the aid and non-military use materials into Gaza, often the same day the rest on the day after delivery. This is for security reasons which any sane nation would impose if their neighboring state was run by terrorists and they had the resources to do such. The no-go zone is for the protection of Israelis primarily. The wide knowledge of this zone to the Gazans is for their safety such that they know they take their lives into their own hands entering that zone. This rule is known and begrudgingly recognized by the United Nations and the International Courts. Truth be told, Israel would be within her rights to simply shoot everybody who comes within three-hundred meters of the border fence. Would Israel have enforced the no-go zone from the onset of the violent rioting, then there would have been no real attempts to breach the border, the border fence would not be damaged at numerous points where the rioting has taken place, and there would have been one fairly large number of people shot, most likely with rubber bullets, and the rioting would likely have ended with some really ugly reporting about Israel enforcing their no-go zones condemning Israel for having such a thing. Of course, nobody would be reporting their understanding of the reason for the no-go region or that it is a safety barrier for both sides as it prevents misunderstandings. Further, there is a reason that these border breaches are being attempted at this time. Israel is in the process of building a new fence and this fence will be a true border barrier. This will be an above ground stronger barrier and a new below-ground tunnel barrier. Once this new border divider is completed, then Hamas will no longer be able to attempt to easily breach the border with human waves of even bolt-cutters as have been wielded during these riots. Still, had Israel from the onset of the first people arriving at the border area enforced the three-hundred meter security area, the rioting would have been called off early on. It was the fact that Hamas has found a means of getting their terror operatives to the border fence with breaching tools that has these riots continuing.

 

What has been amazing is that Israel has been capable of recognizing which people approaching the border are armed with breaching agents, explosives, firearms and other items which could be used to destroy equipment, the fence or used to kill soldiers and these have been the people shot. Hamas and Islamic Jihad have recognized and admitted that it has been their terrorist members who have made up well over eighty-percent of those killed. That is over four out of five killed have been terrorists. However Israel is capable of making these determinations is probably some technology that the rest of the world would likely love to get their hands on for their own enforcement efforts. There are reports that an Israeli company using face recognition software can spot criminals and terrorists out of an airport crowd. The system, as far as we know, is still being tested and improved. All such systems would need actual use time and have adjustments made, but to have such algorithms is a definite bonus. Having one that works under rioting conditions, as it appears the Israelis have managed to do due to their high percentage of terrorists from Hamas and Islamic Jihad in their targeted killing has been simply amazing. Have their been any innocents injured or killed, of course as in any war or conflict situation. But over an eighty-percent terrorist kill rate and probably an even higher kill percentage have been guilty of attempting to damage or destroy the fence, equipment or have shot at the IDF with firearms, thrown grenades or Molotov cocktails or flews incendiary kites over Israeli positions. Show any other military with such a high percentage of terrorists over innocents ratio. There is a reason the same nations whose media decry Israel defending her border send their military officers and trainers to Israel to learn the best and most efficient and proficient ways of engaging and preventing terrorism.

The Media and Their Lies are Starting to Upset Us

 

We sat down and started our regular discussion before setting words to media and realized that after what we read about the Gaza War was just too upsetting for us to write anything calmly. We thought things through and decided that we would be better served to sleep on this and not write it while tempers were still flared. We apologize for our delaying reporting but we just need to simmer and calm before writing. As stated by Falstaff after feigning death and thus avoiding Prince Hal’s judgement in Shakespeare’s Henry IV, Part I, “The better part of Valor, is Discretion; in the which better part, I have saved my life.” Our discretion may be saving our being hosted here on WordPress as what we want to say in the heat of the moment would prove disastrous in the end, so we will return to this article when heads have cooled and thought gelled into a presentable reaction and assessment of the pure bile, hatred and lies spilling out of the media and we will write this before reading anything further just to be capable of remaining in a clamed state. Until then, and until this is posted, thank you all for your reading support.

 

The level of animosity in the reporting of the “peaceful” protests along the Gaza border with Israel has been inundated with falsehoods. The pictures show families holding picnics, men in rows in prayer, a tent serving drinks and food and numerous other innocuous activities. Some have shown the smoke screen produced through the burning of thousands of tires. Other pictures show people protesting as if they were marching with Martin Luther King for equal rights. These protests have been reported as being against the Israeli occupation of Gaza. Everything above is a compilation of lies. The easiest to pick apart is the presumed reports of an Israeli occupation of Gaza. Israel withdrew from Gaza in 2005, a full two years before Hamas violently took charge of Gaza by violently overthrowing the Palestinian Authority governance. Israel had no part in this battle for rule over Gaza. The Palestinian Authority lost a civil war with Hamas and Hamas has ruled Gaza ever since. For everybody’s benefit, the blockade of Gaza began once Hamas took control over Gaza in order to prevent the importation of heavy weapons. The intention was to prevent Hamas from importing weapons as the PLO had attempted with the Karine A weapons ship which Israel intercepted revealing the arms shipment which was attempted to be smuggled into Gaza when the PLO controlled the region before Hamas (see image below). Hamas would have such ships arriving as regularly as they were able had Israel not taken it upon herself to monitor the items being shipped into Gaza. The blockade that the Europeans get all fussy over often gets the aid that is actual aid into Gaza by trucks the same day or the next day. Some items are not permitted into Gaza such as certain metals which are used to produce rockets and firing tubes. Cement is only permitted for rebuilding buildings and the vast majority of that cement is stolen by Hamas to build tunnels which is why no school or hospital has been built in Gaza for many years and why so many of the apartments have not been rebuilt. The fact is that Hamas uses over forty percent of all production in making bunkers and infiltration tunnels all with the intent to destroy Israel. These protests are the latest Hamas weapon against Israel, their own people.

What you are not being told is about the kites being flown over the Israeli border with incendiary devices tied into their tails with the intent of setting fires over the border. They have brandished swastika flags along with the Palestinian Flag and if you look closely at the swastika kite, the bottom of the tail has an incendiary device attached (see image below). These are images from Gaza that unless you comb media, particularly Israeli and, oddly enough, Arab media where the reality is represented without any political mendacity in order to make Israel the problem and not reveal the Hamas as terrorists with the murder of Israelis as their intention. The first day of the Gaza rioting Hamas sent a child, a young seven year old girl, across the border near the start of the border violence likely hoping she might be shot in the confusion. The IDF recognized the figure approaching was a young child and took care to see that she was unharmed and found her parents returning her unharmed and hopefully not traumatized by the ordeal. This is far from the first time that children have been used in terror operations. One recently became a darling of the leftists and many Europeans when the Israelis finally were permitted by Israeli laws to arrest Ahed Tamimi as she was finally of age to be considered and tried as an adult. She was arrested for kicking and striking an IDF soldier while doing all she was able to prevent his performing his assignment, something she had been doing since she was a young child while her father would record every confrontation hoping to get any shot which could be used to portray the IDF in a bad light. One can imagine her shock when the same disruptive and violent attacks on IDF soldiers finally resulted in her arrest after over ten years of doing the same thing undisturbed by paying any price. Immediately her picture with her stylishly wild and curly hair became the pin-up girl of the Israel is a monster groups and she was such a hero standing up to those monstrous IDF soldiers. Let us take into consideration that after over a decade of such activity, after finally reaching the age of responsibility, Ahed Tamimi was finally arrested for her actions. She was not shot, she did not require medical services as she was simply arrested and done so with the least amount of violence as required to arrest a sixteen year old girl who was kicking, screaming, spitting, scratching, biting and doing everything in her power to cause just one IDF soldier to get pushed to the point of using even the slightest of violence as her mother, a cousin and others surrounded her and the soldiers recording every action hoping for that perfect picture which might make it appear undue violence was used. For the record, her mother was also arrested for attacking the same IDF soldiers while they were performing their duty. The Tamini family gave the media a completely different story to the media that the IDF came seeking a confrontation and threatened to attack their home. Their darling daughter was merely protecting their home, for the past decade attacking IDF soldiers for a living. She was given a minimal sentence which many thought a travesty with some thinking she got off easy and others believing she was arrested unlawfully. We will leave this to our audience to figure out which loved and supported Israel and which were in Europe protesting her arrest and damning Israel. These are the same claiming Israel is reacting with disproportional force to peaceful protests and not protecting their border from terrorist infiltration.

The Gaza rioting and attempted invasion of Israel has proven to be very revealing. We, all of us, can use these protests and the reactions to them as a measuring device. Those who are protesting that Israel is overreacting and that these protests are simply peaceful with any reports of violence being misrepresentations and that the only violence has been committed by the IDF can be counted as always being anti-Israel. Those supporting Israel one will find that they have already been supporting Israel and have braved the slings and arrows of outrageous accusation by the other group. These two sides live on other sides of what appears to be an uncrossable line as it appears that almost all those who have chosen one side or the other, will remain on their original side of that divide. Once with Israel, always with Israel and once against Israel always against Israel, that appears to almost be a law. One Israel supporter who has proven invaluable has been Colonel Richard Kemp who can be heard at the Gaza border describing what he as a highly experienced military background and knowledge of the laws of warfare and their applications to modern anti-terror military activities to explain the situation here. We apologize for the wind interference, but when in the desert, weather may not always cooperate. Colonel Kemp recognizes that the Hamas effort is to use civilians as weapons to breach the border and then use such a breach through which to push their terror forces. To get this accomplished, they have sent terrorists armed with knives, firearms, wire cutters and other instruments to either engage the IDF or breach the border fence. The fact is that thusfar the vast majority, approaching 85% or more, of those killed have been Hamas or Islamic Jihad terrorist operatives, as admitted by Hamas. The means by which Israel has been capable of picking out the terrorists and those who have been actively attempting to breach the border is astonishingly accurate which has produced this almost unbelievably high level of shooting only actual terrorists. As for those others, how many were aiding in breaching the border versus those who may have been innocent are figures we are unable to verify or even produce at this time, but the percentage of terrorists was verified by the leaders of Hamas on their television channel (see video below). You cannot hope for better than Hamas spokesperson on their television channel supporting that over 80% of those killed, fifty out of sixty-two, especially when you add the three which Islamic Jihad claimed as their terror operatives, and these figures may not be the complete story as their may be others who are attempting to be heroes by aiding the terror efforts and also been targeted, and this we may never know as the IDF will not release such information as they do not wish to reveal their methods. Every nation’s military has their methods and these methods will be kept as guarded secrets. The IDF is no different. The way the IDF is different is they honestly take great care to not kill innocents to as much an extent as any military could possibly manage. They have set the standard so high that military high officials from Western militaries have complained that the IDF has set the standards too high for them to meet. They have sent officers to learn the techniques used by the IDF to assure that they not target civilians while still being effective and most have concluded that the IDF methods cannot and will not be adopted by their military forces as they refuse to place their soldiers in such peril by utilizing the warning systems used by the IDF.

 

 

The horrifying thought behind this display of indifference for their people by Hamas is that it could become the tactic by the Palestinian Authority and Israel’s Arab neighbors. The thought of hundreds of thousands of innocent people driven by their governments to attempt and swarm the Israeli border is absolutely horrifying. The other problem is that this kind of attitude is rewarded by the European Union, the United Nations and demonstrators the world over through their decrying the presumed loss of innocent lives when the vast majority of those killed have been terrorists. The furtherance of this problem is fanned by the media and their lies which have become legion. Nowhere are they reporting that Hamas is paying families between one hundred and three hundred dollars per day depending on their level of participation with those rushing the border fence paid the most. Further, they are paying families from three hundred to five hundred dollars for being injured in order to maximize the people reporting injuries and they are paying five hundred dollars minimum per individual reported killed per family. These remunerations are being paid simply to increase the numbers reported killed and injured as well as to maximize the numbers at least appearing near the border and even encourages youths to rush the border even though they may be killed as their family is paid more for their approaching the fence and if they are injured they get more and if killed, at least they know their family will receive the maximum amount of payment. This is another item being ignored by the world media all so as to make the protests appear to be homegrown and not paid for and with those coming just for the minimum payment, they provide the background pictures of families having lunch as part of their protest or the men all praying and the myriad of other pictures depicting an almost party attitude. This is not a party, not a picnic lunch and nothing but an attempt to swarm the Israeli border. What does Hamas hope to accomplish? Either they swarm the border and get beyond the IDF and are able to murder hundreds if not thousands of Israelis after which the world will mourn the dead Jews as they always do after refusing to protect their rights to life. The other possibility is the IDF refuses to allow swarms to pour into Israel killing Israelis and instead they open fire to stop the people pouring through a breach and Hamas has pictures of hundreds of dead Arabs for the European and American media to portray the IDF as vicious killers. Either alternative Hamas will accept as a great victory, one dead Israeli and the other a propaganda bonanza. Either way Israel loses as we wish not to have to kill innocent Arabs which will attempt to pour through the fence and would then murder or severely injure any Israeli they came upon. That is the reason the IDF would have no other choice but to use everything in their capability to prevent such an eventuality. Hamas will continue to attempt to breach the border for as long as there are useful idiots cheering them on across Europe and North America. The sooner the developed world tires of this story, the safer the border will become for Jew and Arab alike. May that day come soon and may the world finally wake up to the foolishness their hatred of Israel is driving them.
