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.

editor 12 July 2018

By Matan Tzuri.. Israeli photographers band together for special photo project to show the world the devastating results of the fires breaking out because of incendiary kites and balloons being flown into Israel from the Gaza Strip.

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.

Evil And Human Depravity – And Then There’s Hamas Too

editor 2 June 2018

By Melanie Phillips.. When confronted with absolute evil or the depths of human depravity, some of us experience a very particular kind of depression. It’s as if we just can’t cope with such a repudiation of humanity. Some experience it when exposed to the details of child sexual abuse. And some feel it over the libelous falsehoods hurled at Israel whenever it’s forced to defend itself against genocidal fanatics, as happened this week in the Hamas onslaught on the Gaza border fence.

As Gazans Attack Border Crossing, It’s Israel, Not Hamas, Coming to Their Aid

editor 29 May 2018

By Yaakov Menken JNS.org – Despite Hamas’ repeated assault on the Kerem Shalom border crossing, the only lifeline that supplies basic goods to civilians in Gaza, Israel has been battling intensively to keep it open. The episode underlines a much wider phenomenon in which Hamas seeks to create a crisis in order to bring in outside funding for Gaza’s needs, so it can ensure the stability of its regime and keep supporting its military wing.

170 Syrians Were Killed During Three Days This Week — Without Any News Coverage

editor 26 May 2018

By Elder of Ziyon.. On Sunday (May 13, 2018), 114 Arabs were killed. On Monday (May 14, 2018), 30 more. On Tuesday (May 15, 2018), 26 more.

But the media didn’t think that Arabs dying was an interesting story — because those people had the misfortune of being killed by other Arabs. If they had been killed by Jews, then suddenly there would be interest.
