NEWS FROM ISRAEL AND THE MIDDLE EAST


Hamas tells Fatah: Let’s fight Israel together


The Jerusalem Post reports: “Hamas leader Mahmoud Zahar called on Fatah to join his movement in the fight against Israel and to stop wasting time and effort with the peace process.

Zahar’s call came as Hamas and Fatah representatives stepped up their efforts to end their differences and achieve ‘national reconciliation.’

Meanwhile, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas told reporters in Ramallah that his top priority now was to end the rivalry with Hamas, and said he saw no reason why the two sides could not reach an agreement on holding presidential and parliamentary elections.

Speaking at a rally for Hamas supporters in Gaza City, Zahar said, ‘Our hands are extended to Fatah to join the program of [armed] resistance and the liberation of Palestine.’

Addressing Fatah, he added, ‘Come and join the program of resistance and stop wasting your time and effort. Let’s join hands and carry the rifle together.’

Zahar said that Fatah members who wish to join the ‘bandwagon of the triumphant, celebrate with us and become our partners are welcome.’

He claimed that the West was now displaying an understanding of Hamas’s armed resistance strategy.

‘They no longer see our people as terrorists and murderers who have no respect for women and children and who only love blood,’ Zahar said. ‘Westerners came to the Gaza Strip and saw that we are among the most civilized people.’

Following the UN General Assembly vote in favor of granting the Palestinians the status of non-member observer state, Hamas and Fatah leaders pledged to work hard to end the split between the West Bank and Gaza Strip…” (More anti-Semitics, hatred of God’s chosen people – Deuteronomy 7:7, 8. Israel is God’s elect and all Jew haters will stand before the Christian God, Christ, on Judgment day – Isaiah 42:1, 45:4, 65:9, 22; John 5:22; Acts 17:31; Revelation 20:12 – 15. See the next five reports.)


Hamas: Israelis will flee in next war with us


The Jerusalem Post reports: “In the next war between Hamas and Israel, many Israelis will flee their country, Hamas’s Minister for Prisoners Affairs, Atallah Abu al-Sabah said.

In an interview with a Palestinian TV station in the Gaza Strip, Sabah claimed that thousands of Israelis had fled to the North to escape from Hamas’s rockets and missiles.

‘The era of Israeli victories has gone for good,’ he said.

The Hamas official predicted that Israel would from now on rely on short-term wars ‘because it is not able to lead long-term wars of attrition.’

He also praised Arab and Islamic countries for supporting Hamas during the recent fighting by dispatching delegations to the Gaza Strip.

‘Gaza has united the Arab nation and solidified its existence as a political entity,’ the Hamas official added.

Sabah said that while ‘Palestinian fighters fought with a strong belief and high morale, the Israeli soldier fought with a defeatist spirit. The fabric of Israeli society has been torn apart in the face of the resistance’s strength.’…” (Israel has never fled in any war with Islam to date and never will. God says: “I will give them [Israel] an everlasting name…” That’s good enough for any thinking man. See the next three reports.)


Fatah Official Calls for Armed Resistance


Israel National News reports: “A senior member of Fatah, the faction headed by Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, called for armed resistance against Israel.

The remarks made by Fatah Central Committee member Jibril Rajoub aired on Palestinian Authority TV and aired on the same day that Abbas asked the United Nations to upgrade the PA’s status to that of a non-member observer state.

The remarks were translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

‘What brother Abu Mazen [Mahmoud Abbas] is doing is living proof of the independence of our decision making and our will,’ said Rajoub. ‘This is the sacred message borne by the greatest Palestinian since Jesus – Yasser Arafat. It runs in the genes of all the Palestinians. We are all Arafatists, and we are loyal to your blood, oh Abu Ammar, whose death we commemorate this month: We shall only return our swords to their sheaths when the [Palestinian] state is established, your hopes are realized, and the refugees return.

‘Let me tell you that the refugees’ return is sacred to Fatah and to all Palestinians. Resistance in all its forms is the strategic choice of Fatah. Let us agree – and we are ready for that – that if there is shooting, we will shoot, and if there are demonstrations, we will demonstrate,’ Rajoub said.

Fatah is often branded by the West as the “moderate” faction, compared to terror group Hamas, and as a partner for peace talks with Israel…”


Hezbollah: Tel Aviv will be hit by 1,000’s of rockets if Israel attacks Lebanon


Haaretz reports: “Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah warned Israel that thousands of rockets would rain down on Tel Aviv and cities across the country if it attacked Lebanon.

Speaking four days after the cease-fire which ended a week of conflict between Israel and the Islamist Hamas rulers of Gaza, Nasrallah said Hezbollah’s response to any attack would dwarf the rocket fire launched from Palestinian territories.

‘Israel, which was shaken by a handful of Fajr-5 rockets during eight days – how would it cope with thousands of rockets which would fall on Tel Aviv and other (cities) … if it attacked Lebanon?’ Nasrallah said.

The Fajr-5s, with a range of 75 km (45 miles) – able to strike Tel Aviv or Jerusalem – and 175 kg (386 lb) warheads, are the most powerful and long-range rockets to have been fired from Gaza.

But Hezbollah, which fought Israel to a standstill in a 34-day war six years ago, says it has been re-arming since then and has a far deadlier arsenal than Hamas. Nasrallah has said Hezbollah could kill tens of thousands of people and strike anywhere inside Israel if hostilities break out again.

‘If the confrontation with the Gaza Strip … had a range of 40 to 70 km, the battle with us will range over the whole of occupied Palestine – from the Lebanese border to the Jordanian border, to the Red Sea,’ Nasrallah said.

Hezbollah could hit targets ‘from Kiryat Shmona – and let the Israelis listen carefully – from Kiryat Shmona to Eilat’, he said, referring to Israeli’s northernmost town on the Lebanese border to the Red Sea port 290 miles further south…”


Iran aims biological warheads at Israel


WND.com reports: “Iran has 170 ballistic missiles aimed at Tel Aviv, many with biological warheads, WND has learned.

According to a source who served in Iran’s Intelligence Ministry and who recently defected, the Islamic regime has 170 missiles targeted at Tel Aviv from underground silos, some of which are armed with biological warheads.

The Islamic regime ruling Iran has prepared for the total destruction of Israel as well as a capability to target European capitals, he said.

As reported in the Washington Times in August, a commentary in Mashregh, the media outlet of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, confirmed that the Islamic regime not only has weapons of mass destruction but has armed its terrorist proxies with them, including Hezbollah and Islamic Jihad. The commentary warned Israel that if the fighting in Syria does not stop, an all-out attack on the Jewish state will be launched and that at zero hour, Tel Aviv will be the first city to be destroyed…” (Persia of Ezekiel 38:5 changed its name to Iran in 1935. Their goal is to rid the world of Jews. An Arab federation has this goal: “…let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. [Psalm 83:4] Isaiah 56:5 says “…I will give them [Israel] an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off.” Israel belongs to the Hebrews and Christians. This is where our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ sets up His kingdom and rules the world from Jerusalem – Luke 1:32, 33.)


Ahmadinejad: Israel must ‘bow’ to Palestinian rights


The Jerusalem Post reports: “Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told the head of the Hamas government in Gaza that eight days of cross-border fighting showed that Israel had no choice but to ‘bow’ to Palestinian rights, according to Iran’s IRNA news agency.

The Iranian-backed Hamas has basked in what it called a victory against Israel after an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire on Thursday ended the conflict in which 163 Palestinians and six Israelis were killed.

IRNA said Ahmadinejad, in the rare telephone call with Ismail Haniyeh, praised the Palestinian ‘resistance and perseverance’.

‘Zionists have reached the dead point and have no other alternative but officially recognizing and bowing to the absolute right of the Palestinian nation,’ IRNA quoted Ahmadinejad as saying, referring to Israel.

The agency’s English website did not elaborate but Ahmadinejad has previously said that Israel was an alien body in the Middle East…” (Hamas and the Palestinian’s called the eight day war a victory. Really? Read the above article again which states 163 to 6. That is 27 times as many Palestinians who died as Israelis and Hamas calls this a victory. Read Proverbs 27:1; and James 4:13, 14.


President Warns Enemies of Dire Consequences of Threatening Iran


The Fars News Agency reports: “Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad warned enemies against the grave consequences and repercussions of endangering Iran’s security, and said any enemy move against the Islamic Republic is destined to defeat and failure.

‘They might be able to take some steps forward, but we will drive them back in such a way that they will be pushed back to inside their borders,’ he said on the sidelines of inauguration ceremonies held to mark the launch of operation of several industrial projects in the Central Isfahan province.

President Ahmadinejad urged the enemies to take a look at the history of the Iranian nation to see how it has resisted, fought and defeated oppressors.

Earlier, Lieutenant Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Brigadier General Hossein Salami said that the geopolitical scene of the world which has been created by the superpowers will be changed by the Iranian Armed Forces’ technological advancement and psychological preparedness soon in future.

‘The Islamic Republic of Iran has managed to break the geopolitical order imposed by superpowers,’ the Iranian commander said, adding that the scene of the world geopolitics will be changed totally in near future.

The general added that the enemies are no longer able to change Iran’s strategies due to their declining power…” (Remember Ahmadinejad God’s warning in Proverbs 16:18 “Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.”)


Afghans Worry About Iran’s Growing Influence


Voice of America News reports: “As the United States negotiates the scope of its presence in Afghanistan after combat forces leave in 2014, Afghan former officials and analysts are getting concerned that neighboring Iran is also seeking to shape Afghanistan’s future.

In the eyes of Ahmad Saeedi, a political analyst and former diplomat, Tehran’s influence is becoming pronounced.

‘Afghanistan is under the siege of Iranian influence. Nowadays we have six pro-Iranian TV channels, 21 radio stations, and a large number of publications that appear in Kabul that are pro-Iranian,’ he says, adding, ‘The cultural war is more important than war led by guns.’

Khalid Mafton, a U.S. educated political analyst living in Kabul, says Iran’s strategy is aimed at both bolstering its support among Afghanistan’s minority Shi’ites and countering U.S. and Western influence in Afghanistan.

He says that Iran’s long term agenda ‘is to have some people who support the Iranian regime and culture in the society, and in the short and medium term is to somehow hurt the American military forces in Afghanistan.’

This warning has particular resonance for Washington given its experience in Iraq, where pro-Iranian Shi’ites came to power following the U.S. military intervention…” (I think that Iran is the most dangerous place ever as will soon be proven if and when they have completed their nuclear production – II Timothy 3:1; Luke 21:25, 26.)
