Time to let Gaza fail

editor 13 August 2018

By Caroline Glick.. The time has come for Israel and the U.S. to let Gaza fail.

It is not in America’s interest, and it certainly is not in Israel’s interest, to assist Gaza’s terror regime in any way.

This means there should be no push to develop Gaza economically. There should be no plan to build new infrastructure in the Hamas-ruled terror fiefdom bordering Israel and Egypt, which is waging war against both countries. And there should be no place for Gaza reconstruction in any Trump administration peace plan for Israel and the Palestinians.

Why Iran Supports Palestinian Terror Groups

editor 25 July 2018

By Khaled Abu Toameh.. The Iranian general did not offer to build the Palestinians a hospital or a school. Nor did he offer to provide financial aid to create projects that would give jobs to unemployed Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. His message to the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip: Iran will give you as much money and weapons as you need as long as you are committed to the jihad (holy war) against Israel and the “big Satan,” the US.

Iran’s Two-Front Strategy

editor 17 July 2018

By Tony Badran.. With simmering conflicts on the Golan and in Gaza, Tehran looks to strip Israel of its strategic advantages. Israel is about to face two active fronts on its borders: one in Gaza, and the other in the Golan Heights. As factions in Gaza fired rockets at Israel, an offensive of the alliance backing the Assad regime was underway in southern Syria, which is likely to reach the Golan soon. While this might appear as random coincidence, it’s more by design: The escalating attacks from Gaza should be seen as part of a coordinated Iranian strategy.

The Decreasing Effectiveness of Hamas Terrorism

editor 3 July 2018

By Prof. Hillel Frisch.. BESA Center Perspectives Paper No. 880, July 2, 2018

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: The downturn in Hamas’s fortunes is not only political but also practical. From the 1990s through the “al-Aqsa intifada,” it made lethal use of suicide terrorism. Its substitutes since then – ballistic, tunnel, and now kite terrorism – are decreasingly effective. [Picture top right: Christians for Israel International].

The lethal moral confusion of saying kaddish for Hamas

editor 18 June 2018

By Melanie Phillips.. The Hamas onslaught against Israel at the Gaza border fence has illustrated a danger for the Jewish people even more fundamental than the declared attempt to invade Israel and slaughter Jews. This is the fallout among the Jews themselves. In London, a group of young Jews assembled outside parliament to recite the kaddish prayer for the Hamas terrorists who were killed while attacking the fence in the most violent riots on May 15, 2018.
