Netanyahu: Conflict is Over Israels Existence, Not Land
Israel National News reports: “The conflict between Israel and the Palestinian Authority is not over land, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said speaking in a meeting with senior officials in the Foreign Ministry.
The conflict, he said, is over Israels very existence. In proof, he pointed to the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza in 2005, which included the forced removal of thousands of Jewish residents of the area.
Israel got rocket attacks in exchange, he said.
The Palestinian Authority does not wish to recognize Israel as the national homeland of the Jewish people, he continued. However, he said, Israel remains willing to restart negotiations with no preconditions ” (So true, Islamic religionists want to carry out Psalm 83:4 – They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. It wont happen because of Gods promise to Israels everlasting existence. Isaiah 56:5 states: I will give them [Israel] an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off.)
Quds Brigades Warn Israel of Stunning Response to Future Aggressions
The Fars News Agency reports: “Al-Quds Brigades, the military wing of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad Movement, said the resistance groups’ response to any future Israeli strike on Gaza will stun the Zionists much more than the Palestinians’ response to the 8-day Israeli war on the Gaza Strip last November.
Spokesman of al-Quds Brigades Abu Ahmad stressed that the group treats each and every Israeli threat to Gaza seriously and will never be handcuffed and helpless against the Zionist enemy’s invasions.
Meantime, he downplayed the Israeli threats as empty and said, Palestinian resistance groups in the Gaza Strips, including the Quds Brigades, are prepared to face any scenario in the region.
Abu Ahmad said that the resistance movement has many unused cards in their hands for confronting Israel, and noted, Future battles will be different for the Palestinian Resistance (movement) and we will stun the enemy more than before. ” (All Islamic threats will meet resistance from the Judeo-Christian God, Yahweh. Genesis 12:3 states – And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. See the next two reports.)
Hamas Warns Zionist Extremists against Storming Aqsa Mosque

Top Official: Iran Threat Greater Than Ever
Israel National News reports: “A top security source told Channel Ten that despite appearances to the contrary, Israel’s military option on Iran was very much alive, and that Iran was reaching the point where construction of a nuclear weapon was within reach.
The official, whose identity was kept under wraps, is considered a highly placed, highly reliable source. The official said that Iran has in recent months dramatically increased its uranium enrichment capabilities, the result of the installation of new centrifuges. With the new equipment, Iran should be able to soon enrich as much as 200 kilos of uranium. With that amount, the source said, Iran would be able to easily equip a nuclear arsenal.
The decision on whether Iran will go in this direction is in the hands of Iran’s spiritual leader, Ali Khamenei. Israel has excellent intelligence on what is going on in Iran and is aware of the danger of the current situation, the source said. If we see they are moving towards the ‘red line’ of nuclear capability, all options are on the table even before they reach this point. ” (Ali Khamenei recently stated It matters not how many millions of Iranians die in a nuclear war as long as Islams flag flies over all nations. This is the so-called religion of peace. See the next report.)
