sderot-gan-635x357

A Rocket fired from the Gaza Strip on Friday night exploded outside a preschool in the border town of Sderot, causing damage to the property.

There were no direct casualties in the attack.

An earlier rocket exploded in an open area in the Sha’ar HaNegev region, causing no damage.

The launches set off warning sirens throughout Sderot as well as other communities in the area.

Residents then reported hearing two loud explosions.

Channel 2 News said several people in the vicinity of the Sderot impact site suffered from shock.

It was the first rocket attack reported in June. Earlier in the month Hamas test-fired dozens of short-range rockets in Gaza, with Israeli sources estimating that at least 30 projectiles were launched.

Those rockets were aimed at areas not under Israeli control,

Israel has seen sporadic fire from the Gaza Strip, usually claimed by small Salafi groups engaged in a power struggle with the Hamas terror group, which is the de facto ruler of the strip.

Israel has said repeatedly that it views Hamas as solely responsible for such attacks. It regularly responds to rocket-fire with airstrikes on Hamas targets.

Israel raids 4 sites that are ‘components of Hamas’s operational infrastructure’ in Strip

The Israeli Air Force attacked targets belonging to terror groups in the Gaza Strip early Saturday morning, the IDF said, hours after a rocket fired from the coastal enclave landed outside a preschool in the border town of Sderot, causing damage but no injuries.

The four Gaza sites included a workshop, two locations of Hamas’s armed wing and a military training site for Islamic Jihad, a Gaza security official said on condition of anonymity. There were no reports of casualties.

Two of the sites were in Gaza City, while two were in the northern town of Beit Lahiya. All of the sites have been previously targeted by Israel, the official said.

The IDF said in a statement it had “targeted four locations that were components of Hamas’s operational infrastructure in the northern and central Gaza Strip.”

Israel Watch: Ramadan in Israel Equals Another Innocent Victim to Palestinian Terrorism

The Bangladesh attack overshadowed ANY news of this one in Israel, and all of this on the heels of the Stabbing of a 13 year old American Citizen by a “Palestinian” Terrorist in her own home. -SF

Israel

This is the direct result of the hatred and incitement to genocide that is routinely featured on “Palestinian” TV. But the UN is too busy issuing condemnations of Israel to take any notice.

“Palestinian kills Israeli, wounds family in West Bank attack,” Associated Press, July 1, 2016:

RAMALLAH, West Bank – A Palestinian gunman ambushed a family traveling in a car in the West Bank on Friday, killing an Israeli man and wounding his wife and two teenage children in an assault that prompted the military to send hundreds of troops to the area — the largest operation in the territory in two years.

The army also imposed a closure on the Hebron district, a flashpoint area where many of the recent attacks have stemmed from.

Additionally, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel will reduce the amount of tax revenues it collects on behalf of the Palestinians each month, saying that some of the money was being given to families of attackers….

How many BDS Leftists even know that Israel collects money for the “Palestinians”?

Crusader Corner: US TAXPAYER FUNDED TERROR GROUP HONORS MURDERER OF AMERICAN WOMAN

Terror1

I know it’s a controversial idea, but maybe we should stop paying Islamic terrorists to kill Americans.

Back in 2010, American Christian tourist Kristine Luken was brutally butchered by Kifah Ghanimat as she hiked in a forest south of Jerusalem with an Israeli friend.

Today, Ghanimat lives comfortably in an Israeli prison to enjoy his handsome monthly salary, courtesy of the U.S. government.

In Israel it is no secret that American financial aid to the Palestinian Authority pays salaries of Muslim terrorists in its jails each month. This bone chilling fact that is often met with disbelief by many Americans, who for some wild reason can’t imagine why their government would be part of such a heinous crime.

To make matters even more sickening, the longer the jail sentence, the bigger the salary, which means that those who have committed the worst crimes are those who receive the biggest reward. Because of this, many see this as a way that the Palestinian Authority is encouraging terrorist violence, thanks to the active assistance of the American government.

A survivor of the attack described the horror of it.

Because of the wounds all over her body, she can only sleep on her back and wakes up several times every night from the pain.

“I see he gets out his knife and he pushes my head forward and I’m just waiting to be beheaded. I think psychologically at that point I lost all sense of fear. I completely blacked out, all I could think about was that he’d make a clean cut that he wouldn’t be messy.

“I’m waiting for ‘Allahu akbar!’ but it doesn’t come.

Instead, I hear ‘Oh no, oh God,’ and I can hear them starting to stab [Kristine] a few times. The next thing I know…he’s just stabbing me.

“He stabs me in the back so hard that I fall to the ground… and he is repeatedly plunging his machete into me. He’s doing it with such force that I can hear my bones crunch and as he tugs out that serrated blade I hear my flesh rip”

Now the Palestinian Authority is celebrating the killer, as Palestinian Media Watch reports.

For their murder, Ghneimat and Fataftah are presented by the PA as Palestinian heroes. According to PA law, they have received monthly salaries from the PA since they were arrested in 2011. By now, entering their sixth year of imprisonment, they should be receiving 4,000 shekels/month -$1000. Since their arrest in 2011, each have received more than $30,000 from the PA.

In a PA TV broadcast last week, the TV host referred to terrorist Kifah Ghneimat as “the heroic prisoner.” The terrorist’s mother was invited to participate and was interviewed, but not about Ghneimat’s crime or what it is like to be the mother of a murderer. Rather, PA TV wished to know what this murderer’s favorite food was during the Ramadan.

The sooner we realize that this is what the Palestinian cause will always be reducible to and that this is what Islam is, the sooner we can stop being complicit in its evil.

Israel Watch: 13-Year Old Girl Who Was Murdered By Palestinian Terrorist Was American Citizen

This puts the obamaoids in an odd, but very typical predicament. As they unabashedly  SUPPORT The Palestinian Authority, and by Proxy Hamas, they have in fact also helped support and finance the Murder Of an American Citizen by terrorist. Wonderful. -SF

Hallel

Hallel-Yaffa Ariel, a 13-year-old girl in Israel who wanted to be a dancer, was stabbed to death in her bedroom by a Muslim terrorist.

The father of 13-year-old Hallel-Yaffa Ariel, who was murdered in her sleep by a Palestinian terrorist Thursday morning, has spoken of his gifted girl’s dreams of becoming a dancer.

“Last night she came back from a dance performance,” Amichai Ariel recounted. “She was an amazing girl.”

“She worked very hard for years to become a dancer. She put so much effort into everything she did. God gave her a great mind, lots of wisdom. She was so bright.”

Yael Kabiliv, the aunt of the young girl murdered in Thursday morning’s vicious terror attack in Kiryat Arba, spoke with journalists in the Shaarei Tzedek hospital, following news that Hallel-Yaffa Ariel had succumbed to her injuries.

“A truly wonderful girl was murdered today – Hallel-Yaffa bat Rina Devorah. Hallel, my niece, was the most amazing girl in the world.”

“She had slept in late after having danced in a performance the night before. [Then], a disgusting terrorist came in and killed her while she slept in her bed.”

As his wife wept beside him, Amichai said he and his daughter had planned to work together at his local winery.

“This morning at 9:30 we were supposed to work together filling bottles with wine.”

“Hallel loved living here, loved the place,” he continued. “She wasn’t afraid of anyone. She never imagined – nor did anyone else – that an evil person, one of 1.5 billion Muslims who just want to drown the world in rivers of blood. That’s what they live for. Its terrible, just think about it: A little girl who did nothing.”

Unfortunately the religion of Islam commands its followers to murder non-Muslims until they submit to Islam. This latest Muslim murderer named Mohammed was following in the footsteps of the original Mohammed who began the process of ethnically cleansing Jews from the Middle East.

But the Islamic terrorism practiced by Muslims living in Israel is funded by US taxpayers. As I wrote after the murder of Taylor Force, Muslim terrorism in Israel is maintained through a system of payments by the Palestinian Authority to terrorists. The PA is funded largely by the United States.

The Palestinian Authority pays terrorists based on the amount of harm they caused and the resulting jail sentence. Had  Masalha survived his attack on Taylor Force and the other victims, he would have likely been paid $2,000 a month for his act of terror. That’s pretty good money in a place where $2,000 is more like an annual income. It’s so good that that there’s no shortage of terrorists eager to kill for cash.

And the Palestinian Authority has no shortage of money to pay Muslim terrorists to kill Americans and Israelis because the terror organization which claims to be a state is subsidized by the United States with billions of dollars. In 2014, the PA spent $144 million on payments to convicted terrorists. Its terror budget benefited from Obama boosting 2014 foreign aid to the PA to $440 million. For “peace”.

Masalha is dead and will not receive the blood money he was hoping for from the Palestinian Authority, but he died knowing that his family will still be paid for his crime. In just one year, the PA paid out $78 million to the families of terrorists. Masalha’s family will receive money each month for the murder of Taylor Force. That money will come from American taxpayers. It will come from you.

Americans are paying money to Islamic terrorists who kill them. They are paying money to their families so that the terrorists know that even if they die, their families will be taken care of by their victims.

As long as we continue funding the Palestinian Authority and reciting cliches about a two-state solution, we are complicit in this form of Muslim terrorism. All taxpayer funding of the “Palestinian” cause must end.

Espionage Files: Elite Hamas Commander Reportedly Defects to Israel

hamas2

A senior member of the military wing of Hamas, the Palestinian militant group that governs the Gaza Strip, is believed to have defected to Israel. News of the rumored defection first appeared on the website of Al-Hayat al-Jadida, the official newspaper of the Palestinian Authority, which is based in the West Bank. On Tuesday, Al-Hayat said that the man, a member of the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas’ military wing, had not been seen for several days.

The alleged defector was later named as Bassam Mahmoud Baraka, and reportedly comes from a well-known family in Kahn Younis, on the southern sector of the Gaza Strip. Baraka’s father is believed to be a religious judge that serves in Gaza under Hamas’ jurisdiction. According to Al-Hayat, the missing man is an elite member of the al-Qassam Brigades and specializes in operating inside the numerous underground tunnels that are said to span the entirety of the Palestinian enclave. The tunnels are of strategic importance to Hamas, as they secretly connect it with the outside world, despite Israeli efforts to prevent the trafficking of goods and people to and from the Gaza Strip. Some Israeli military officials believe that Hamas operatives are able to travel from one end of the Strip to the other without having to emerge from the ground. Since the 2014 Israeli invasion of Gaza, Tel Aviv has said that it views the elimination of Hamas’ vast underground tunnel network as a national security priority.

According to Palestinian websites, Baraka told members of his family that he was stepping out for a brief hike but never returned. He is believed to have voluntarily approached the border fence that separates Gaza from Israel and surrendered himself to a group of Israeli soldiers. Al-Hayat reports that Baraka’s family has already been informed from representatives of the Red Cross that he is in Israeli hands. Palestinian sources suggest that the Israeli soldiers that took in Baraka were aware of his pending defection and were waiting for him at the border. He was also reportedly carrying a laptop computer with him.

Israel is known to aggressively recruit informants in the Gaza Strip, many of them affiliated with Hamas. In 2010 it was revealed that Mosab Hassan Yousef, whose father is a senior Hamas official, was a secret informant for Shin Bet, Israel’s domestic security agency. Yousef defected to Israel and is now believed to be living in the United States.
