Delusional Announcement of the Day (emphasis mine):
Announcement of the Islamic Wakf:
The Wakf warns against the damage done to the Mount by the [Israel] police. The police have turned the mountain into a military base by means of the surrounding military checkpoints, security cameras and electronic equipment, all in order to make the Muslims not reach and allow the Jewish extremists to break into the mountain in very large numbers. The police also prevent Wakf guards from escorting the extremist Jewish groups, in order to allow them to conduct their religious ceremonies and prayers without anyone intervening.
[The Wakf] is solely responsible for everything related to the 144-dunam mountain, and everything around it. All management, renovation, preservation, construction. As a place that belongs entirely to Muslims and under the patronage of King Abdullah II. The department calls on governments in the Arab and Muslim world and for all those who want true peace to take responsibility for the mount that is under attack by the Israeli government and its security arm, the police.
Can you believe this nonsense? During the month of Ramadan alone, Israel permits more than 1,000,000 Muslims to worship on the Mount whereas 2017 saw barely 20,000 Jewish visitors to the Mount. Jews are continually arrested on the Mount for as little as bowing toward the Kipat HaSela (Dome of the Rock).
Everything “belongs entirely” to the Muslims? What delusional planet does the Wakf live on?
The News on the Israel Street
Palestinian terror in the last 24 hours . .
Totally unreported in the mainstream media, Palestinian terrorism continues 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Here are some of the places where terrorists attacked yesterday:
Burqa, El Azariya, Abud, Abu Dis, Beit Rima, Adam Square, Beit Aryeh, Jenin, Givat Assaf, Adam, Hizma, Mt. Hevron, Hevron, Qalqilya, Al-Fawwar, Luban a-Sharqiya, Dir Nizam, al-Muayyir, Dir Istiya, Ma’ale Levona, on Route 465, Ofarim, along Road 446, Azzun, El Aruv, Umm Safa, Habla, Bil’in, Sha’ir, Beitin, Neve Tzuf, the Hafsa Junction, Hawara, Beit Haggai, and throughout Gush Etzion.
The ongoing scandal at Hadassah Ein Karem Hospital in Jerusalem . . .
In recent months, it has come to light that it is almost impossible for Jewish children living in Jerusalem who are suffering from cancer to be treated at Hadassah Ein Karem.
Because the pediatric oncology department almost exclusively accepts Palestinian children for treatment.
And who pays for their treatment?
Yesterday, it was reported that in 2016 (the last year for which there are records), twice as many Palestinian children received bone marrow transplants as did Israeli children. Of course, your humble servant is happy for Palestinian children who are extremely ill to receive treatment–just not instead of Jewish children who are citizens of Israel.
UNRWA gets its money after all . . .
In the wake of the Trump Administration decision to freeze $65 million in payments to UNRWA, Belgium announced yesterday that it would partially fill the funding gap by funneling $23 million dollars to the Palestinians.
The Belgian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander De Croix proclaimed: “The organization is the last lifeline for many Palestinian refugees.”
What unadulterated nonsense.
As we have pointed out on many occasions, the “poor starving” Palestinians of Gaza are among the most obese people in the Arab world.
But wait . . . the “wonderfully humanitarian” Belgians, thoroughly intimidated by its violent Muslim population, were not really so humanitarian after all. It turns out that Belgium had promised Palestinian UNRWA $7.6 million dollars per year for the next three years. Instead of spreading the payments out, Belgium will pay everything at once.
The New Israel Fund once again reveals its true colors . . .
In a brazen announcement yesterday, the New Israel Fund announced that it will fund any organization in Israel that tries to thwart government policy concerning the illegal infiltrators from Africa who now reside in south Tel Aviv and elsewhere.
As you know, the government in recent years has erected a fence along the Sinai border to stop infiltration and is attempting to pay infiltrators to return to their countries or go to a third country.
Here’s what the director of the NIF said:
“Those who oppose deportation have sometimes managed to slow down, suppress and even defeat those who seek to reshape Israel and turn it into a state of fear, xenophobia and the repression of populations. With our [financial] support, they can win.”
It is a blatant effort to change the demography of Israel–and specifically to undermine Israel as a Jewish country.
What is even more egregious is the what the New Israel Fund has named its efforts to undermine the government. The NIF project has been named “The Anne Frank Project.” Comparing Anne Frank’s situation which led to her and her family’s death in the Nazi concentration camps with Israel’s efforts to relocate illegal infiltrators is abominable.
The Ongoing Israeli Raid On Jenin
Elements of the Border Patrol Unit, Israel Police, General Security Service, and the IDF have been engaged in an operation in Jenin since midnight last night. Hundreds of security personnel have been deployed in and around the city.
The purpose of the raid was to capture the murderer of Rabbi Raziel Shevach who had been tracked to a house in Jenin. During the course of the early morning, Israeli forces surrounded the house, engaged in a firefight, and leveled several houses with anti-tank missiles and a bulldozer.
One terrorist who was involved has been killed (but it is not believed that he pulled the trigger), and another terrorist is believed buried under the rubble of the house–but the situation is too dangerous to confirm this.
At least two Israelis have been wounded. The most serious was evacuated to Rambam Hospital in Haifa where his condition has now been stabilized, and he is breathing on his own.
Who was the terrorist who was killed?
None other than Ahmed Jarrar, the son of noted Palestinian terrorist Nasser Jarrar, a senior member of Hamas who was killed during the second intifada. Fatah, the military arm of the PLO, has already published this poster praising the Jarrars:
As of this hour (7:30 pm), our forces remain in place in Jenin and are under attack from rioters.
