In this six-minute video, radio host Dennis Prager explains the real reason there is no peace in the Middle East. He says Muslim extremists don’t want peace, because they desire Israel’s destruction. With that as their ultimate goal, lasting peace is impossible. Even the terrorist organization Hamas — which controls the Gaza strip– calls for Israel’s destruction in its Charter. So who else has called for Israel’s destruction? Advertisements
It was inevitable. After weeks of purposefully endangering their lives, the people of Gaza are starting to turn against Hamas. Hamas has brutally ruled Gaza since it took control in 2005. Every two or three years it attacks Israel. In its most recent conflict, as it did in the past, the terrorist organization is purposefully launching its rockets from Gaza suburbs and even hospitals hoping Israel’s retaliatory strikes would result in human casualties or at the very least destroy people’s homes. According to a report by the Associated Press, Gazans are starting to openly criticize Hamas. This is a very rare move and extremely dangerous as Hamas, similar to its ISIS cousins in Iraq, will kill fellow Muslims with little provocation. The lucky ones who criticize Hamas’ are thrown in jail. The AP article stated:
Finnish reporter Aishi Zidan was in Gaza to do one thing – report on the suffering of the Gaza people because of Israel’s battle with Hamas terrorists. Instead, she inadvertently confirmed exactly what Israel has said from the beginning of the conflict, that Hamas was intentionally endangering Gaza civilians by using them as a protective shield. As Zidan was doing her report for Finland’s Helsingin Sanomat, she stated without thinking that at 2 am she noticed that Hamas was launching a missile from the backyard of the Gaza-based Shifa Hospital — yes a hospital. A translation of her comments, provided by The Blaze, reads:
Something amazing happened in this world recently, and most of us missed it. We know that violence has spread like a fire in the Middle East, recently. Israel is fighting Hamas in Gaza and Egypt is fighting a smaller parallel war on the southern border of Gaza. Both are fighting Hamas and its allies. Egypt and Israel are co-belligerents, if not allies in a war against Arab Muslims. On the eastern border of Egypt, Libya is collapsing into a violent civil war and hundreds of thousands are running for their lives. Many of the refugees are Egyptian workers. Countries like Canada have evacuated diplomatic staff. North of Israel, starting from the valley of the Euphrates river, the Islamic movement Isis, or Isil, or the Islamic State has conquered large parts of Syria and Iraq. Iran, the ancient Persia, has sent fighters to support Syria and Iraq. Thousands have died, many more are refugees, and entire nations are being destroyed. A world war may be emerging from the Middle East, like an ancient Bible story with guns …
In a previous article, I wrote on how Hamas terrorists are reportedly complaining that Israel’s God is causing their missiles to miss the targets. Hamas is bombarding Israel with thousands of missiles. Israel uses an Iron Dome system to send up counter-strike missiles to knock out Hamas rockets as they are in flight. There are estimates Israel is intercepting between 30% to 40% of Hamas’ missiles. The problem is there are not enough Iron Dome batteries to effectively cover all of Israel, but still the Iron Dome is proving an effective defense. However, even with its efficiency, due to the thousands of missiles Hamas is launching at Israel, hundreds are still getting through. However a report of one errant Hamas missile attack may be a further sign God is intervening in this war.
As Israel and Hamas continue to battle in the Gaza strip, CNN released a stunning interview with Mosab Hassan Yousef, 36, a former Hamas and son of Hamas founder Hassan Yousef. His father, a powerful Sheik living in the West Bank, helped start the terrorist organization in 1987. But Mosab not only left Hamas, he also left the Muslim faith and became a Christian. The conflict started a few weeks ago when the terrorist group Hamas, that now controls Gaza, unleashed an unrelenting barrage of missiles on Israel. A key part of Hamas’ defense strategy includes hiding its forces within civilian populations hoping civilian deaths would turn public opinion against Israel. But the media, which is traditionally anti Israel, is starting to see Hamas for what it really is — a brutally violent, terrorist organization. In the CNN interview, Mosab said:
As Hamas continues to rain thousands of rockets and missiles on Israel, people are stunned by the lack of damage that is occurring. A number of reasons are being thrown out. Israel has developed its Iron Dome that is intercepting rockets and destroying them before they land. But it is not stopping all of them. Israel estimates it intercepts between 30% to 40% of Hamas’ missiles. Many are still getting through, but so far have inflicted minimal damage. The Hamas strategy has been relatively simple — throw enough rockets into the air and eventually one is going to cause massive damage. That moral victory will be trumpeted around the Middle East. Targets of their barrage have included a nuclear power plant, airports and city suburbs. According to reports, even the Hamas is starting to notice how ineffective their missiles have been and they blame Jehovah. Barbara Ordman lives in the West Bank (Palestine). In an article in the Jerusalem Telegraph, she recounted a story of what one Hamas missile launcher said, when he was asked …
Israel Today reports that Hamas has unleashed massive missile attacks on Israel and is specifically targeting an Israeli nuclear power plant. It is estimated they fired about 300 missiles and rockets against Israel on Wednesday and Thursday (July 9 & 10, 2014). The missiles are being fired from the Gaza strip which the Hamas controls. The Gaza strip is a small piece of Palestinian land in Southern Israel bordering the Mediterranean Sea. As well as targeting Israel’s Dimona nuclear power generator, Hamas has also launched missiles at the suburbs of Tel Aviv in hopes of inflicting civilian casualties. It also being reported that Lebanon terrorists have started firing missiles into Northern Israel.
