“Hamas to Swarm Israel’s Border, Sparking Fear of New ‘Passover War,’” by Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon, March 29, 2018:
The Palestinian terrorist group Hamas is planning a mass demonstration along Israel’s border on Friday, prompting fears of a new war with the Jewish state ahead of the Passover holiday, according to regional experts and U.S. officials who say they are closely monitoring the situation.
On the heels of a recent military exercise that observers described as “unprecedented,” Hamas leaders have called for some 100,000 Gaza Strip resident [sic] to engage in six weeks of mass demonstrations along the Israeli border as Jewish families gear up for the Passover holiday, which begins Friday evening.
Regional experts closely tracking the situation say the demonstrations are meant as cover for a mass military campaign to swarm Israel’s border and stoke violence against the Jewish state.
The situation is being closely monitored by Trump administration officials, who outlined concerns that Hamas could use civilian protesters as human shields as cover for attacks on Israeli forces.
Tension are high ahead of the mass demonstration, dubbed the Great Return March, with the United Nations already imploring Israel to not attack children or other civilians.
Officials with the U.N. Relief Works Agency, or UNRWA, a body routinely cited for its anti-Israel bias, have already endorsed the demonstrations, stoking further concerns the U.N. is setting the stage to blame Israel for any violence that could erupt. UNRWA has offered medical facilities to any Palestinian who may be injured during the weeks of protest.
State Department officials told the Washington Free Beacon that they are aware of the upcoming protests and will be tracking the situation closely.
“We are aware of calls by Hamas asking people to march along the Israeli border over the coming weeks,” one U.S. official told the Free Beacon.” We will monitor the situation and developments closely.”
The State Department emphasized that it still considers Hamas a terror group and is aware of its routine use of human shields during terror operations.
“Our position on Hamas has not changed,” the official said. “It is a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization. Any use of human shields is absolutely unacceptable.”
Omri Ceren, a managing director at The Israel Project, a D.C.-based organization that works on Middle East issues, warned that Hamas is using civilian protests as cover for a massive military operation that could launch another regional war.
Evidence suggests Hamas has already prepared to flood Israel with armed assets during the demonstration and has even positioned equipment such as tractors to shift the ground and erect fortifications.
“Hamas is trying to trigger a Passover War and the U.N. seems eager to help them,” Ceren said. “Hamas is preparing thousands of civilians to rush Israel’s border, tear down the defensive fence, and provide cover as Hamas fighters flood into Israel.”
While Israeli military officials have planned to use as little force as possible to control any violent eruption, things could get out of hand quickly, Ceren said.
“The Israelis will do everything possible to prevent escalation and avoid casualties, but this is the kind of thing that could go really bad really quickly,” he explained.
“Meanwhile the U.N. is supporting Hamas and setting up Israel to get blamed for anything that happens to Hamas’s human shields,” Ceren said. “American lawmakers were already inclined to view the U.N. as biased and unhelpful when it comes to Israel and this can cement that view.”…
Observers have been warning that Hamas is not seeking a peaceful protest, but a military campaign in the guise of civilian demonstration….

Thousands of Israelis soldiers will not be celebrating the Passover Seder with their families today as Hamas stokes up a massive provocation on Israel’s border with the Gaza Strip. Hamas are bringing tens of thousands of troublemakers in what they are calling the “March of Return.”
They have set up logistic points of assembly before ordering the people to attack the border fence and create an incursion into Israel. Soldiers and tanks are watching developments and have orders to protect the Israeli border at all cost. Soldiers have also been brought south to protect the kibbutzim and villages close to the border with Gaza in case of a massive incursion. Some injuries have already occurred.
Israel will not tolerate any action that will endanger our sovereignty of the safety of our soldiers and civilians. Israel has warned Hamas that their facilities will be targeted if their provocative demonstration gets out of hand.

Jason Greenblatt, who is President Donald Trump’s special envoy to the Middle East, told Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas to quit denying the true history of Jerusalem and its connection to the Jewish people.
Greenblatt made the comments in response to Abbas’s remarks at a youth festival about how the Arabs amd Christians are the rightful owners of Jerusalem — while conveniently omitting the Jews.
Jerusalem, of course, was established by God for his chosen Jewish people, according to biblical history. And failure to acknowledge that has fueled almost all the anti-Israel, anti-Jewish, anti-Semitic rhetoric and violence in recent years.
Here, Greenblatt visited with Hamas in January:
Israel Today has more on his response to Abbas:
As far as Israel is concerned, denial of the Jewish historical and religious connection to this land, and especially to Jerusalem, is the primarily roadblock to peace at present.
Finally, it would seem that the American government agrees.
US President Donald Trump’s special Middle East envoy, Jason Greenblatt, on Thursday blasted Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas for failing to mention that Jerusalem’s connection to the Jewish people.
On Tuesday, Abbas addressed a Palestinian youth festival and repeatedly told the young Arabs that Jerusalem is and always has been a city for Muslims and Christians. No mention of Jews.
According to Greenblatt, that kind of rhetoric only pushes peace further away.
“Pres. Abbas states about Jerusalem: ‘it is Arab, Muslim, and Christian.’ And makes no mention of any Jewish ties. Nothing peaceful or productive can come from statements like this,” Greenblatt wrote on Twitter.
“Lasting peace will not be achieved by denying Judaism’s thousands of years of ties to Jerusalem. Jerusalem is holy to Muslims, Christians, and Jews,” he added.
All of the Palestinian Authority’s most hard-line positions are based on the premise that the Jews have no right to be here.
Furthermore, Israel believes that a genuine, long-lasting peace can only be achievable if it’s built upon a foundation of truth and acceptance of documented historical fact.

HAMAS has long been known as a Middle East terror organization that declares in its foundational Covenant that the obliteration of Israel is its raison d’etre and regularly fires missiles and digs tunnels across the border from Gaza to make that happen. But until now, its extensive networked presence here in the United States has been less well-understood, largely because of HAMAS’ success in disguising its operations through an array of front groups.
To cut through the web of HAMAS deceit, veteran Middle East analyst and author Ilana Freedman brings another volume in the Center for Security Policy Press’ Civilization Jihad Reader series, HAMAS, CAIR & the Muslim Brotherhood. As she explains in her highly readable yet fact-rich style, the Muslim Brotherhood (of which HAMAS is the Palestinian franchise) sought to expand into this country soon after World War II. But it really established a solid foothold with the founding in 1993 of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) by the top HAMAS operatives in the United States at the time.
As Freedman explains in her in-depth treatment of the 2008 Holy Land Foundation/HAMAS terror funding trial, while CAIR may be the most directly tied of the HAMAS branches inside the U.S., hundreds of other Brotherhood front groups all share the same objective, as spelled out in the Brotherhood’s 1991 Explanatory Memorandum. That objective is “destroying…Western Civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house by their hands [meaning those of the infidels]….” Unlike in the Middle East, where HAMAS’ Gaza operation confronts Israel kinetically and constantly, inside the U.S., the preferred method thus far has been “civilization jihad” – the stealthy, subversive use of infiltration, subversion and deception to pursue the destruction of the pillars of American society “from within.” By posing as “moderate” Islamic alternatives to the vicious violence of the likes of al Qaeda, the Islamic State or Taliban, the U.S. Brotherhood front groups have enjoyed remarkable success in advancing this agenda.
That is largely because Americans are all-too-often are unprepared to recognize deceit when it is employed in a sustained, disciplined fashion by skilled professionals. Consequently, as documented in a number of CSP Press’ other Civilization Jihad Reader Series offerings, key U.S. constituencies – notably, in academia, the courts and legal system, faith communities, government at all levels, local law enforcement and society in general – have failed to recognize that they are under assault by Brotherhood-associated individuals and groups. This is all the more shocking given that the latter’s loyalty to the triumph of Islam’s supremacist Sharia doctrine and to jihad to establish its dominance worldwide is of a piece with the ambitions of other jihadist groups.
Ilana Freedman cuts through such confusion, cognitive dissonance and willful blindness to exposes one group after another that represent themselves as not-for-profit organizations, Muslim advocacy representatives, or legitimate businesses for the jihadist front group they really are. For example, in addition to CAIR, she highlights the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the Muslim American Society (MAS), the Muslim Public Affairs Committee (MPAC), the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) and many more tied to the Muslim Brotherhood by the Department of Justice in the Holy Land Foundation trial.
Of particular importance is Freedman’s examination of how the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood has evolved with its formation in 2014 of the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO). Her analysis of the USCMO’s known links not only to jihadist fronts but to groups like Black Lives Matter and the Saul Alinsky-type anarchists that cluster under the name “Antifa” is especially timely as we see these apparently disparate groups form connections in a common drive to destroy America’s constitutional Republic. In addition, Freedman connects all these dots to national level donors and funders who enable such subversive operations to function.
In the following video, Center for Security Policy Vice President for Research and Analysis, Clare Lopez, who serves as the editor-in-chief of the “Terror Jihad” collection and its companion, the “Civilization Jihad Readers Series,” introduces the Center’s new monograph, HAMAS, CAIR & the Muslim Brotherhood.
Upon the publication of Ilana Freedman’s new monograph, Center’s President, Frank J. Gaffney, observed:
The damage to U.S. national security wrought by the subversive operations of HAMAS and other Muslim Brotherhood groups is less immediately visible than acts of violent terrorism. But in the long-term, it is these civilization jihadists’ relentless corrosion of the pillars of America’s society that poses the most grave threat to our Republic.
The Center is pleased to present the latest addition to our Civilization Jihad Reader series, HAMAS, CAIR & the Muslim Brotherhood as an important contribution to exposing and countering this insidious peril inside our country.
Boko Haram, ISIS, Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas. Why are there so many different radical Islamic groups? What do they have in common? And what do they ALL want to achieve? Watch and share widely.

“Hamas Couldn’t Be Happier Obama Let UN Pass Anti-Israel Resolution,” by Russ Read, Daily Caller, December 29, 2016:
Palestinian terrorist group Hamas is ecstatic about passage of a United Nations Security Council resolution condemning Israel’s settlement policy, and its own incitement to violence.
Hamas issued a statement supporting the resolution Saturday, one day after its passage. The Obama administration abstained from voting on the measure, allowing it to pass. The move infuriated Israeli officials who saw it as an abandonment of the historical U.S. policy of vetoing such resolutions.
“We value the position of states that voted in favor of the resolution and welcome this significant transformation in international positions that support the Palestinian people’s rights,” said Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum in a press release.
The terrorist group’s keen support is surprising, given the resolution supposedly also condemns groups like Hamas for engaging in terrorism against Israelis. What’s more, Barhoum goes on to say his group supports further resolutions “backing the Palestinian people’s just cause.”
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry claimed Wednesday the resolution rightly condemns incitement, but the resolution itself makes no mention of Palestinian incitement specifically. Instead, a majority of the resolution outlines Israel’s alleged transgressions.
Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes assured reporters in a phone call Friday that the administration’s decision to abstain from the vote does not change its long-standing policy of supporting Israel.
“President Obama has done more for Israel and its security than any previous U.S. president,” claimed Rhodes….
The plight of Christian living in Gaza under the Palestinian authority continues to worsen. According to a new Arabic language report, recent years have “witnessed a critical upsurge against the Christians,” who only amount to approximately 2,500 people—surrounded by approximately 1.5 million Muslims. Local authorities have abandoned the tiny minority to Islamist elements who have “placed great and continuous pressure” on the Christians.
“At times we hear of the bombing of a Christian bookshop and assaults on churches and other Christian institutions; other times we hear of the kidnapping of Christians and the coercion of them to embrace the religion of Muhammad,” says the report.
In mid October, Christians in Gaza led a protest, calling for the return of their kidnapped children and loved ones. They held up signs saying “I am a Christian and boast of my cross.” Bishop Alexios of the region “confirmed that the Christians who converted to Islam did so under threats, coercion, compulsion, and force.” His church also submitted a formal petition to the governor of the region, Ismail Haniyeh, calling on him to investigate matters, but received no response.
The report adds that Gaza’s Christians are calling on the Christian world to intervene. The bishop said that he is trying to communicate all of this to the Vatican, the United Nations, and the United States.
Another Muslim group aligned with the Islamic State waging holy war in the cause of Allah. The “Group of the People of Sunnah for Preaching and Jihad,” commonly referred to as Boko Haram, has pledged allegiance to the Islamic State.
Obama say, “the Islamic State is not Islamic.” And what a brilliant and effective strategy that has turned out to be. Obama’s tower of skulls.
ISIS, Boko Haram, al Shabaab, Hamas, Muslim Brotherhood, al Qaeda, Hezb’Allah, MILF, et al — it’s all the same thing. Islamic imperialism through jihad (holy war).
“Boko Haram Jihadis Burn Children Alive, Slay Over 100 Villagers in Nigeria Massacre,” By Thomas D. Williams, Ph.D., Breitbart, January 31, 2016:
In one of their most heinous massacres to date, militants from the radical Islamist Boko Haram group slaughtered over a hundred victims in a village in northeast Nigeria Saturday night, including a number of children whom they burned alive.
The latest atrocity from the jihadi group allied to the Islamic State took place in the village of Dalori, some three miles from Maiduguri, Nigeria. Vice Chairman of a civilian joint task force in Dalori, Modu Kaka, said that at least 100 dead bodies were taken away but that hundreds are still missing.
Witnesses spoke of “scores of bodies” burned and riddled with bullets lying in the streets after the attack Saturday night. One man, who managed to escape by hiding in a tree, said that he could hear the wails of children screaming in the flames.
Residents of the community said the militants stormed into town around 6:20 pm and began their killing spree, which lasted for several hours. During the assault, the jihadis demolished houses and burned livestock once they had pillaged and carried away foodstuffs. Several of the villagers were burnt beyond recognition.
Witnesses reported that the fighters ravaged the settlement for four hours, and that three female suicide bombers blew themselves up among people who were fleeing.
Students at nearby University of Maiduguri heard explosions and gunfire, and many fled the area as the conflict raged.
One political science student named Hauwa Ba’na said: “We are crying in our hostel because the explosions are loud and everyone is panicking.”
A Dalori resident, Mallam Buka, decried the lack of protection from the Nigerian military. “We were helpless. Could you believe that there was no military presence in Dalori? The government didn’t provide security to protect us. I lost 11 people, and 5 of our children are nowhere to be found,” she said.
Another resident by the name of Ibrahim Muhammad said that the Boko Haram insurgents had dressed up as military personnel and began opening fire on everybody. “All our wives and children were brutally killed while they looted and destroyed our livestock,” he said.
Boko Haram terrorists began their Islamist insurgency in Maiduguri in 2009, and during their 6-year uprising have killed some 20,000 people and driven another 2.5 million from their homes.

The U.S. government rejected the conclusions of the British government’s 18-month review of its intelligence and policy towards the Muslim Brotherhood, concluding that the Islamist group is linked to terrorism and extremism. The comprehensive study welcomed outside contributors, of which the Clarion Project was one.
The British government rejected the myth that the Brotherhood is “moderate” and the patently false notion that it is “non-violent.” The Brotherhood and its ideology are now rightly seen as adversarial and measures will be taken to counter its threat. While the UK stopped just shy of banning it as a terrorist group, Prime Minister David Cameron said it will “keep under review whether the views and activities of the Muslim Brotherhood meet the legal test for proscription.”
The U.S. government, without even conducting any kind of review of its own, issued a statement to the Investigative Project on Terrorism rejecting any ban or even any “de-legitimizing” of the Brotherhood at all.
“Political repression of non-violent Islamist groups has historically contributed to the radicalization of the minority of their members who would consider violence…The de-legitimization of non-violent political groups does not promote stability and instead advances the very outcomes that such measures are intended to prevent,” the U.S. government statement claims.
In other words, the U.S. position is this: Be held hostage by the so-called “non-violent Islamist groups.” Sure, the Muslim Brotherhood has a wing named Hamas that the U.S. officially designated as a Foreign Terrorist Organization but it could be worse—at least not allof the group’s members are engaging in violence.
Accept them as “moderates” as they wish, even at the cost of better Muslim alternatives. Don’t confront them. Don’t even “delegitimize” them for their radicalism and ideology because that might push them over the edge.
That’s not a mindset that understands what the threat is and certainly is not one that can defeat it.

It’s just a few extremists, remember. It’s just a tiny minority. Every religion has its extremists, you racist, bigoted Islamophobe. Two-thirds of “Palestinian” Muslims favor stabbing Israeli civilians, but remember: the Crusades!
“2/3 of Palestinians in favor of stabbings,” by Nan Jacques Zilberdik, Palestinian Media Watch, December 20, 2015:
Following almost three months of Palestinian riots, violence and deadly terror attacks against Israelis, 2/3 (67%) of Palestinians are in favor of stabbing attacks against Israelis and almost the same amount are in favor of “an armed intifada.”
Although most Palestinians support “the use of knives,” almost half (47%) of Palestinians believe the PA’s libel that Israel fabricates the stabbing attacks and that “those who were shot have not stabbed or were not attempting to stab Israelis.” However, 51% do believe that “most… have in fact stabbed or were attempting to stab Israelis.”
These opinions were revealed in a recent poll conducted by the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research (PSR) in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip between Dec. 10-12, 2015 (see below). Summing up the results, PSR remarked that “the ‘Oslo generation’ of youth between the ages of 18 and 22 are the most supportive of an armed intifada and stabbings and the least supportive of the two-state solution.”
This poll confirms Palestinian Media Watch‘s findings that the PA is not educating Palestinians to peace, but is entrenching hatred and terror, and shows that the PA’s constant terror glorification, promotion of violence and libels against Israel successfully reverberate among Palestinians.
The poll found that almost 2/3 (60%) are in favor of an “armed intifada” and more than 1/3 (37%) of Palestinians believe that “the current confrontations” will develop into such. Two thirds (66%) believe that a “new armed intifada” “would serve Palestinian national interests in ways that negotiations could not.”
Other aspects of the poll also reflect that Palestinians believe PA libels, especially the false claim that Israel seeks to destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque – the allegation used by the PA to spark the current wave of violence as well as previous waves of terror attacks:“An overwhelming majority believes that al Haram al Sharif is in grave danger: 51% believe that Israel intends to destroy al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock and replace them with a Jewish temple; 17% believe that it intends to divide the plateau on which the two mosques sit so that Jews would have a synagogue alongside the Muslim holy places; and 9% believe that Israel intends to change the status quo prevailing in the plateau since 1967 by allowing Jews to pray there. Only 11% believe that Israel is interested in maintaining the status quo without change.”
