Israel Breaks Up Al Qaeda Plot To Bomb US Embassy

 

 

 

 

” While Obama and Kerry were pressuring Israel to free terrorists to keep the terrorists of the Palestinian Authority at the negotiations, Israel was breaking up a terrorist plot targeting the US embassy in Tel Aviv.

  Israel’s Shin Bet security agency revealed on Wednesday that it had arrested a terrorist unit that planned to blow up the Jerusalem convention center and the US embassy in Tel Aviv.

  According to the Shin Bet’s statement, the three terrorists who were arrested belong to a Gaza based terror group that is linked to al-Qaida and the attacks themselves were planned by the global terror group’s leader Ayman al-Zawahri. “

” And how did the actual combatants–Israel and Hamas–fare? Normally war is seen as a zero-sum game: one side loses, the other side wins. This is a relatively rare case where both sides may be said to have won. Assuming that the truce holds, Israel won at least a temporary cessation of rocket attacks on its soil. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu now faces the voters having been seen to adroitly walk the tightrope between too little a response and too much of a response to Hamas’s terror–too little would have been avoiding military action altogether, too much would have been (at least in the eyes of many Israelis) ordering a ground attack into Gaza. “

Hamas Fires Rocket From Hospital And Blows Up Bus

 

Two journalists have confirmed that Palestinians have fired a long-range rocket at Israel from next to Al Shifa hospital in Gaza.  Neither journalist, of course, made it the headline, it was just mentioned in passing.  The first was Jodi Rudgren of The New York Times who, in writing a lengthy article about Palestinians suffering at the hospital, noted in passing:

 

 

 ” Hamas and other Palestianian militants hide behind civilians and deliberately attack civilians with great joy.  Yet Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan, who dreams of being leader of the Muslim world, calls Israel a “terrorist state.”  That shows why Israel cannot bow to the mostly demonic “international community.” ”

Did The Qatari Emir Betray Hamas With Gifts And Tracking Devices?

 

” Like many militants in the Gaza strip Ahmad Al Jabari was rarely seen and he did not like to be photographed, when he personally escorted abducted Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit to freedom as part of a prisoner exchange, it was a rare look at the senior commander in the Hamas organization.

However now according to sources speaking to the Fars News Agency, speculation is that the Qatari emir may have tipped Israeli intelligence off to the locations of several Hamas officials.”

Rockets Fired from Egypt Hit Israel

 

 

 

” Two major Israeli newspapers are reporting that rockets fired from Egypt have hit Israel.

“Terrorists in the Sinai Peninsula launched rockets into Israel Friday night,” reports the Jerusalem Post. “The rockets fell near an Israeli village on the southern border, causing some damage, but no injuries.”

The Israeli daily Haaretz reports, “Rockets fired from direction of Egypt toward Eshkol Regional Council.”

It appears no damage was reported in connection with the rocket fire from Egypt. Earlier today, the Egyptian prime minister visited Gaza to express solidarity with the Palestinians there. ”
