The strategy of Occident to have various Islamic groups kill each other works perfectly! This way, Israel is safer and Occident suffers fewer attacks. Divide and conquer is an old reliable British strategy. But the impressive fighting abilities demonstrated by the Islamic State in northern Sinai pose a new challenge to IDF. The use of simultaneous suicide bombings, imported from Syria and Iraq, could one day be directed at Israel.
The terror offensive launched Wednesday by the ISIS in the Sinai Peninsula was aimed at undermining Sisi's military-secular rule in Egypt. But it seems that Sisi is not the only one who should be concerned, so should Israel.
In the short run, Israel has to prepare for the possibility that the attack on 15 posts and centers of the Egyptian security forces in northern Sinai, which claimed the lives of dozens of Egyptian soldiers, will develop into an offensive towards the Israeli border.
In recent years, global jihad activists in Sinai have already attacked posts of the Egyptian army and of the multinational force in northern Sinai, gained control of armored vehicles, flattened the border fence with them and infiltrated Israeli territory. They were stopped by an armored force with the Air Force's help.
The Islamic ideology is based on war and hatred. It calls on people to be violent. It calls on people to be terrorists. The Koran leaves no doubt about it. To all those who say that Islam is peace I say: listen to what the Koran has to say.
It is full of verses such as Sura 4:89: Seize them and kill them wherever ye find them.
Or Sura 47:4: When ye meet the unbelievers, smite at their necks and cause a bloodbath among them.
There are over 150 verses in the Koran calling for jihad or holy war.
Islam cannot be reformed. For the simple reason that we cannot separate Islam from the Koran and neither can we take Muhammad out of Islam. So, there can never be a moderate Islam.
For the sake of our own safety, for the sake of our own children’s future, we must stop all immigration from Islamic countries. And we have to do it now!
During the past four decades, we Europeans have foolishly allowed Islamic mass immigration into Western Europe. This is one of the biggest mistakes we have ever made in our entire history.
Muslims: The media portray us badly.
Media: Are you fucking kidding us? We kiss your asses day and night and still your reputation is in the toilet! Blame yourselves!
ISIS fighters gaining control of armored requires special preparations and alert. The jihadists could drive them towards the border terminals with Israel and the border fence in order to break through them with the heavy weight of the tanks and armored personnel carriers.
IDF quickly shut off the crossings and alerted all the communities along the border with Egypt, especially in its northwestern part. The instruction to the residents is to stay alert, and IDF has also reinforced the presence of armored vehicles on the ground and unmanned aircraft monitoring what is happening near the border. IDF is on the alert with helicopters and fighter jets, which Israel will not hesitate to use in case of an attempt to infiltrate its territory.
Polls reveal that most Muslims of Occident prefer Shariah over the law of the land, and they would support the use of violence to impose Shariah over the constitution! These facts run contrary to the narrative propagated by the media and our political leaders, who hoodwink that such radical views are only held by a tiny minority of extremists.
ISIS declares: We will conquer your Rome, break your crosses, and enslave your women, by the permission of Allah, the Exalted. This is His promise to us; He is glorified and He does not fail in His promise. If we do not reach that time, then our children and grandchildren will reach it, and they will sell your sons as slaves at the slave market.
The battles taking place between the Egyptian army and ISIS fighters could also develop into rocket and mortar fire towards Israel, and the Central Command is preparing for that too. In the meantime, it seems that ISIS men are busy battling the Egyptian army, which is attacking them from the air and from the ground, but the heightened state of alert on the Israeli side will likely continue for a few more days, as experience shows that ISIS will try to create provocations on the border with Israel in a bid to cause a friction between IDF and the Egyptian army and affect the relationship between Egypt and Israel.
There are good relations between the two countries today and excellent coordination between IDF and Egyptian army, but there have already been incidents on the border in which the Egyptians expressed their discontent with the fact that IDF opened fire at global jihad activists in Sinai who attacked, or tried to attack, communities and IDF patrols on the border fence with Egypt.
The greater concern, however, is over the impressive fighting abilities gained by the Ansar Bait al-Maqdis organization, which pledged allegiance to ISIS in November 2014, and its official name today is the Caliphate in the Sinai District. The strategic and complicated attacks, from a military perspective, executed by the organization in January and this Wednesday in northern Sinai show that it is no longer a gang which only knows how to carry out sporadic fire of short-range and inaccurate rockets, or to ambush a civilian bus or an IDF patrol on the Egypt-Israel border.
Creating a State of Palestine will be a great victory for Islam, as it will inevitably be a new jihad base for renewed attacks against Israel. Events will unfold just as they did when the Israelis withdrew from Gaza: while the international media hailed a new era of peace, the Palestinians gutted installations and prepared for jihad.
We stand with Israel. Israel is in Jihad's frontline. By helping Israel to survive, we help ourselves. EU humanitarian aid to Palestinians enables them to save more money to buy guns and rockets. This way, EU inadvertently finances terrorism! Israel creates Nobel laureates, whereas Islam creates terrorists.
Bibi Netanyahu lectures the international community over its criticism of settlement expansion on occupied territory. Netanyahu brings a resonance in Israel, where the song "The whole world is against us" is a hit. Netanyahu vows to continue building settlements in Jerusalem, defying stupid international criticism. Netanyahu declares the Western Wall is not occupied territory, and he does not care what the Universal Nudnik (UN) has to say about it. Netanyahu points out all Israeli citizens live in the Jewish state, and the capital of the Jewish state, for three millennia, has been Jerusalem.
Israel is a bastion of freedom and Graecoroman culture, an economic miracle, and a leader in science and technology with many Nobel prizes. Israel is the only free country in a region dominated by Arab monarchies, theocracies and dictatorships. It is only the citizens of Israel, Arabs and Jews alike, who enjoy the right to express their views, to criticize their government, to form political parties, to publish private newspapers, to hold free elections.
Israel uses its weapons to defend its people, whereas Hamas uses its people to defend its weapons. When Islamists deny the most basic freedoms to their own people, it is obscene for them to start claiming that Israel is violating the Palestinians' rights. All Muslims who are genuinely concerned with human rights should, as their very first action, seek to oust their own despotic rulers and adopt the type of free society that characterizes Israel.
Land-for-peace is a repugnant formula for Israel's self-immolation. The right of a civilized nation to self-defense against its barbarous enemies is a moral absolute. It should not be surrendered in a vain attempt to appease the initiators of war. It is a moral perversion to demand that Israel give back the very land it captured in the process of defending itself against wars launched by the Arab aggressors.
Netanyahu notes the days when bulldozers uprooted Jews are behind us, not in front of us. A million Jews live in more than 100 settlements built in Samaria, Judea, and East Jerusalem since Israel occupied the area in 1967. Netanyahu has long championed settlements, but has also said he would be prepared to make painful concessions to non-settled parts of West Bank.
Netanyahu has not uprooted any settlements, he has expanded them. Nobody can lecture Netanyahu about love for the Land of Israel or commitment to Zionism and the settlements. Tenders and approvals for construction in East Jerusalem have reached record levels under Netanyahu's government. Isolated settlements accounted for nearly 40% of all new constructions, nearly double that of previous years.
When Israel ended its occupation of Gaza, it did not impose a blockade. Indeed it left behind agricultural facilities in the hope that the newly liberated Gaza Strip would become a peaceful and productive area. Instead, Hamas seized control over Gaza and engaged in acts of warfare against Israel. These acts of warfare featured 10,000 rockets directed at Israeli civilians. This was not only an act of warfare, it was a war crime.
Israel responded to the rockets by declaring a blockade, the purpose of which was to assure that no rockets, or other material that could be used for making war against Israeli civilians, was permitted into Gaza. Israel allowed humanitarian aid through its checkpoints. There was never a humanitarian crisis in Gaza, merely a shortage of certain goods that would end if the rocket attacks ended.
Palestinian behavior was captured so well by Abba Eban's phrase that the Palestinians never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity. There is a tendency by the international community to encourage the very behavior that has caused the Palestinians such heartache.
What is particularly ironic about this, whether it manifested itself in diplomatic resolutions at the UN, media coverage, or boycotts, is that all of this has taken place under the rubric of helping the Palestinians. If the Palestinian leadership has been the worst enemy of the Palestinian people, the international community and international media, in the name of helping the Palestinians, are not far behind.
Persecution has driven the Jews nearly to extinction. So many murdered, so many forcibly converted to Christianity and Islam, so many choosing the dubious path of assimilation as a defense against hatred and isolation. The Jews of today are a remnant of a remnant. It wasn’t merely the German Holocaust, but a history of holocausts, that brought the Jewish people to such an infinitesimal position.
The Spanish Inquisition was not motivated by religious feeling, but by racial hatred. Conversion wasn’t enough to save the Jews. The Spaniards hated the idea of Jewish blood mixing with their own. The Inquisition presaged the Holocaust. Physical acts of antisemitism are always preceded by years of hate-filled rhetoric meant to desensitize the world to the coming slaughter.
Benjamin Netanyahu is the only Israeli politician today who could deliver the majority of Israel’s Jewish population to a painful compromise with the Palestinians. He is also one of the few whose endorsement of a deal between Tehran and Washington would allay the concerns of even more hawkish Israelis. The average Israeli trusts that Netanyahu would not sell out their interests for a Nobel Peace Prize.
I will never forget the disgusting pictures of Palestinians celebrating on 9/11. That was enough to enhance my support for Israel. Israel is a beacon of freedom in an unfree region, a beacon of life in a place of darkness. If Israel falls, the West falls. Mothers in the West can sleep safely because Israeli mothers at night worry about their sons in the army. Their fight is our fight. We should support it. Israel is, indeed, a vital outpost of Graecoroman civilization. That is why Islam conditions the faithful to hate the Jewish state and to view its destruction as an imperative. It is our duty to stand with Israel.
