Fowl: Prime Minister Of Turkey Claims ‘Israel Is A Terrorist State’ And Is Guilty Of The ‘Mass Killing Of Muslims’

Yes, this is the same Turkey that is held in high regard within the Muslim world as “a useful model for new Arab regimes” who even regards Hamas as a “supporter of democracy [that] is willing to live in peace alongside Israel.” Self-delusion is not only confined to “radical” Islamic clerics and teachers. It also permeates the upper echelon of Islamic society. Fowl, indeed …

“(Reuters) – Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan described Israel on Monday as a ‘terrorist state’ in carrying out its bombardment of Gaza, underlining hostility for Ankara’s former ally since relations between them collapsed in 2010.

His comments came after nearly a week of Palestinian rocket attacks on Israel and Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip. An Israeli missile killed at least 11 Palestinian civilians including four children in Gaza on Sunday.

‘Those who associate Islam with terrorism close their eyes in the face of mass killing of Muslims, turn their heads from the massacre of children in Gaza,’ Erdogan told a conference of the Eurasian Islamic Council in Istanbul.

‘For this reason, I say that Israel is a terrorist state, and its acts are terrorist acts,’ he said.

Ties between Israel and Turkey, once Israel’s only Muslim ally, crumbled after Israeli marines stormed an aid ship in 2010 to enforce a naval blockade of the Palestinian-run Gaza Strip. Nine Turks were killed in clashes with activists on board.” Read more.

While Trying to Mediate, Egypt Blames Israel for Gaza Conflict – “In Egypt’s most concerted effort to win more global public support for the Palestinians, advisers to Egypt’s President Mohamed Morsi, a former leader of the Muslim Brotherhood who has been an outspoken supporter of Hamas, invited foreign correspondents in Cairo to a background briefing at which a senior Egyptian official sought to blame Israel for the conflict while at the same time maintaining Egypt’s role as an intermediary pressing both sides for peace.” Read more.

Flashback: Turkey Slams Israel, Hails Hamas as a ‘Supporter of Democracy’ that is ‘Willing to Live in Peace Alongside Israel’ – “Turkish president Abdullah Gul on Sunday said Israel should take advantage of the changes in the Middle East to achieve peace with the Palestinian Authority and the entire Arab world, the Turkey-based Today’s Zaman reported… ‘As the democracy in the Middle East grows, Israel will eventually have to stop the violence in ‘Palestine’’, he was quoted as having said. Gul also claimed that Khaled Mashaal, head of the Hamas terror group, is a supporter of democracy and is willing to live in peace alongside Israel.”Read more.

‘Growing Concern’: US Sending Three Navy Warships Near Israel In Case Evacuations Needed

11/19/2012 3 comments

For any “ceasefire” to take effect, Hamas is demanding that all border crossings to and from Gaza be opened 24-hours a day, that Israel end its targeted strikes and that all terrorists in Gaza remain armed to the teeth.  In the words of the leader of Hamas, Khalid Meshal, “we will only cease fire after our demands our met.” Until, that is, the time comes to once again rain more death and destruction upon the Jews near and far. Because in the mind of Hamas, the day will come when the name of Israel will be remembered no more …

By Barbara Starr – “Three U.S. Navy amphibious warships are returning to the eastern Mediterranean to remain on standby in the event they are needed to assist Americans leaving Israel in the coming days, according to two U.S. officials.

The officials stressed an evacuation remains an extremely remote possibility and the Obama administration is not currently planning for one. Americans who wish to leave the region now are able to do so using commercial airlines.

But the decision to send the ships even if the event is such a remote contingency underscores the growing concern about where the Israel-Gaza conflict could be headed.

‘This is due diligence. It is better to be prepared should there be a need,’ one official said Monday. Both officials said the ships would be used only for assisting Americans and not for any combat role.

The most immediate impact will be on the ships’ crews and the estimated 2,500 Marines on board. They had been scheduled to return to Norfolk, Virginia, just after Thanksgiving; their homecoming will now be delayed several days depending on events, the officials said.

The ships involved are the USS Iwo Jima, the USS New York and the USS Gunston Hall.” Read more.

Israel: Inner Cabinet Meets to Discuss Possible Gaza Ceasefire – “Israel’s diplomatic and security cabinet met late Monday night to discuss the latest cease-fire initiatives with Hamas, as international leaders continued to press for an end to the hostilities in Gaza. The government agreed to briefly hold off on sending ground forces into Gaza in order to allow time for cease-fire efforts in Cairo to continue, an Israeli official told The Jerusalem Post on Monday.” Read more.

Flashback: Hamas Leader Khalid Meshal: Jerusalem And The Homeland Will Be Restored Only Through Jihad, The Rifle, And Self-Sacrifice – “In a fiery speech in Cairo on October 3, 2012, at a rally commemorating Saladin’s liberation of Jerusalem, Hamas political bureau head Khaled Mash’al said that the Zionists are enemies of Allah and the prophets, and called for preparing to liberate Jerusalem and restore the homeland once more through jihad, the rifle, and self-sacrifice… Mash’al said, ‘The victory of October 6 [1973] is not just Egypt’s victory, but vengeance [against Israel] for the sake of the Palestinian people and the Arabs. It is [also] a message of humiliation to the Zionist entity, which must know that when Egypt prepares for conflict, it is not defeated by any aggressor. The Zionist entity must know that Egypt has returned …” Read more.

Hamas Calls Israel’s Bluff: We Triple-Dog Dare You To Invade Gaza

11/19/2012 2 comments

Tough Choice: The emboldened, post-Arab Spring world of Islam would not take too kindly to an “invasion” of Jews upon a “helpless” Palestinian population. Will Israel back down and risk appearing weak when terror makes a stand, or will Israel demonstrate strength and risk further inflaming an already explosive situation? …

Blood Drunk: Khalid Meshal

Blood Drunk: Khalid Meshal

By FARES AKRAM, JODI RUDOREN and ALAN COWELL, The New York Times – “GAZA CITY — The top leader of Hamas dared Israel on Monday to launch a ground invasion of Gaza and dismissed diplomatic efforts to broker a cease-fire in the six-day-old conflict, as the Israeli military conducted a new wave of deadly airstrikes on the besieged Palestinian enclave, including a second hit on a 15-story building that houses media outlets. A volley of rockets fired from Gaza into southern Israel included one that hit a vacant school.

Speaking at a news conference in Cairo, where the diplomatic efforts were under way, the Hamas leader, Khaled Meshal, suggested that the Israeli infantry mobilization on the border with Gaza was a bluff on the part of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel.

‘If you wanted to launch it, you would have done it,’ Mr. Meshal told reporters. He accused Israel of using the invasion threat as an attempt to ‘dictate its own terms and force us into silence.’

Rejecting Israel’s contention that Hamas had precipitated the conflict, Mr. Meshal said the burden was on the Israelis. ‘The demand of the people of Gaza is meeting their legimitate demands — for Israel to be restrained from its aggression, assassinations and invasions, and for the siege over Gaza to be ended,’ he said.

Mr. Netanyahu met with top ministers Monday evening and Israeli media said they discussed the next steps in the Gaza conflict, including the possibility of a truce. Israeli officials declined to comment on those reports.

The Hamas Health Ministry said Monday evening that a total of 107 people had been killed since Wednesday morning, when Israeli airstrikes began, following months of Palestinian rocket fire into Israel.” Read more.

Israel Issues Stern Warning To Hamas: We Are Ready To ‘Significantly Expand’ Gaza Offensive If Rocket Attacks Continue – “The Israeli army is ready to ‘significantly expand’ its operation in Gaza, the country’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday as Hamas launched fresh rocket attacks on Tel Aviv. Speaking at the start of the weekly cabinet meeting, Netanyahu said ‘The soldiers are ready for any activity that could take place’.” Read more.

Israel May Be ‘Running Out Of Targets’ in Gaza – “Retired Israeli Defense Force Major General Dan Harel told reporters that Israel is “running out of targets” to strike in Gaza and Israel is “moving quite fast to a turning point,” according to Adam Kredo of The Washington Free Beacon… Israel has launched more than 1,350 strikes (and counting) on Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip since the start of Operation Pillar of Defense.” Read more.

The Nature Of The Beast: Hamas TV Tells Israelis That We ‘Love Death More Than You Love Life’

11/19/2012 2 comments

It hates Israel. It hates the true God of Abraham. Yet it loves and glorifies that which came into the world as a result of the fall of man, something that will, along with hell itself, one day have no place to reside other than the Lake of Fire: Death. This is the nature of Islam. This is the nature of the Beast

Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas), 11/18/2012: “From the Al-Qassam Brigades [of Hamas] to the Zionists soldiers: The Al-Qassam Brigades love death more than you love life”

Revelation 6:8a, “And I looked, and behold a pale [green] horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth …”

Proverbs 8:35-36, “For whoever finds me finds life, And obtains favor from the LORD … All those who hate me love death.”

Revelation 20:14a, “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire …”

Report: Worries Mount That A Desperate Hamas May Soon Launch Rockets With Chemical Weapons Against Israel

11/19/2012 5 comments

Could this be one of the “bigger surprises” that Iran promised for Israel to expect? If Hamas in Gaza were in fact provided with — and are foolish enough to actually use — chemical weapons against Israel, then the nature of this age-old conflict will immediately and drastically change, forever …

Zephaniah 2:4-5, “Gaza will be abandoned and Ashkelon left in ruins. At midday Ashdod will be emptied and Ekron uprooted. Woe to you who live by the sea, O Kerethite people; the word of the LORD is against you, O Canaan, land of the Philistines. ‘I will destroy you, and none will be left.'”

The Times of Israel – “Israeli special forces are deployed in Gaza searching for hidden rockets and weapons, the Sunday Times reported on Sunday, amid fears that a desperate Hamas might affix chemical weapons to its remaining long-range Fajr-5 missiles.

According to the report in the London weekly, which was not attributed to any source, the commandos are looking for missiles hidden underground, a favorite tactic of Hamas.

As Gaza terrorists over the weekend targeted Tel Aviv, a concern for Israeli officials is the threat that Hamas may fit chemical warheads on its long-range Fajr-5 missiles, the newspaper said, quoting an unnamed defense source.

‘Hamas might go for a desperate attempt to launch rockets with chemical warheads if the worst came to the worst,’ the source said.” Read more.

‘Expect Bigger Surprises’: Iran Arms Hezbollah With Chemical Weapons, ‘From Now Onward, We Will Support … Any Groups Fighting Against The Zionist Regime’ – “As the conflict between Israel and the Palestinian Hamas faction is escalating and rockets are hitting Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, Iran announced Friday that its missiles were being used against the Jewish state. Rockets hit Tel Aviv Thursday for the first time since the 1991 Persian Gulf War when Iraqi scuds threatened the city. On Friday, Jerusalem also came under rocket fire from Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip. According to a source in the Revolutionary Guards intelligence division, Iran has large stockpiles of chemical and microbial weapons and it has armed the Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah with them. It also has Quds Forces in Gaza and other Palestinian territories to help Hamas and Islamic Jihad in setting up underground rocket facilities while training and supervising the Palestinians in launching attacks on Israel.” Read more.
