Israeli army hasn’t the faintest idea who launched the Eilat attacks

The Real News Network’s Lia Tarachansky asked IDF Spokesperson Lt. Colonel Avital Leibovitz how the IDF reached their conclusions about who was responsible for Thursday’s attacks near Eilat in southern Israel.

Tarachansky: On what are you basing your conclusion that this group [the Popular Resistance Committees] is responsible for the terror attacks?

IDF Spokesperson: We did not say that this group was responsible for the terror attack. We based this on intelligence information as well as some facts that [we] actually presented an hour ago to some wires and journalists. Some of the findings that were from the bodies of the terrorists, and they are using for example Kalashnikov bullets and Kalashnikov rifles are very common in Gaza –

Tarachansky: Many terrorist groups use Kalashnikovs –

IDF Spokesperson: No, not many terror groups. I’m not saying — I’m referring to the terrorists that came from Gaza.

Tarachansky: Prime Minister Netanyahu said today that the group that was responsible for the terror attack was the one that was eliminated [in Gaza] and you’re saying that’s not the case?

IDF Spokesperson: I don’t know what he said [when speaking on Israeli national television] — I’m not Prime Minister Netanyahu. I’m saying that the group came from Gaza and I’m giving you proof why it came from Gaza — how we know it came from Gaza. This is all I’m saying.

The Kalashnikov is the most widely available weapon on the planet. According to Jane’s Infantry Weapons 2009/2010 this rifle is in use in over 70 countries. An estimated 20% of all firearms available worldwide are of the Kalashnikov family.

So, the IDF says it “knows” the gunmen came from Gaza because they were using Kalashnikovs. That’s about as logical as saying they know they came from Gaza because they appeared to be Arabs.

Why then is Israel now bombing Gaza? Simply because it bombs Gaza every chance it gets. It bombs Gaza knowing that Washington will never object. It bombs Gaza because whenever Jews are killed the easiest form of revenge is to kill Palestinians — even when those particular Palestinians most likely have nothing whatsoever to do with the deaths that triggered this particular cycle of violence.

Explosions and gunfire rock besieged Tripoli

Residents say they could hear shooting from several locations and there were
anti-Gaddafi protesters in the streets.

Explosions and gunfire rocked Tripoli on Saturday night, after days of battlefield defeats left Muammar Gaddafi’s government and troops penned ever more tightly in the besieged capital.

The scale of the unrest was unclear, but speculation was rife that Gaddafi’s 41-year rule was close to collapse.

Tripoli residents told Reuters they could hear shooting from several locations and there were anti-Gaddafi protesters in the streets. Government spokesman Moussa Ibrahim told state television however: “All of Tripoli is safe and stable.”

Earlier, opposition fighters expelled government forces from the strategic western city of Az Zawiyah, a major victory in their march on Tripoli.

Gaddafi’s forces continued to fire rockets and mortar rounds at Az Zawiya from positions in the east on Saturday and the city’s central hospital was hit several hours after it was taken by rebels.

Momentum appears to have now firmly swung in the opposition’s favour after months of near-deadlock, with the
rebels holding much of the east and the Libyan regime controlling the west.

“Gaddafi’s days are numbered,” said Jeffrey Feltman, US Assistant Secretary of State, during a visit to the de-facto rebel capital of Benghazi. “The best case scenario is for Gaddafi to step down now … that’s the bestprotection for civilians.”

Mustafa Abdel Jalil, an opposition leader, echoed the statement.

“The end is very near” for Gaddafi, said the chairman of the rebel National Transitional Council (NTC) on Saturday.

“We have contacts with people from the inner circle of Gaddafi,” he said. “All evidence [shows] that the end is very near, with God’s grace.”

The territory remaining under Gaddafi’s control has been shrinking dramatically in the past three weeks, with opposition fighters
advancing on the capital, from the west, south and east. Major supply routes into the capital have also fallen under rebel control.

Challenges ahead

In an indication of challenges ahead, however, rebel spokesman Ahmed Bani said his troops retreated from parts of the eastern town of Brega, losing the industrial section to Gaddafi’s forces.

The oil port  has frequently changed hands throughout the conflict. At a news conference, Bani said rebels captured the city of Zlitan, 140km southeast of Tripoli, after more than two months of fighting.

“Zlitan is now completely liberated after a severe fight, and for the first time I can say we have control over it,” Bani told reporters on Saturday.

As rebels battled for towns on either side of Tripoli on Saturday, fighting spilled across the border into Tunisia, where Libyan
infiltrators clashed with Tunisian troops.

Tunisian security sources said their forces intercepted Libyan men in vehicles with weapons and fought them through the night in the desert. They reported several casualties.

Gaddafi’s forces west of Az Zawiyah and near the Tunisian border have been effectively encircled and cut off from their supply lines. Tunisia has increased its army presence in the border area.

Residents of the southern Tunisian desert town of Douz told the Reuters news agency that helicopters were seen overhead and troops had been summoned from nearby towns to subdue the infiltrators, who rode in vehicles without number plates.

The Tunisian security sources did not say whether the armed men were rebels or supporters of Gaddafi. Residents said they believed they were Gaddafi supporters.

Tunisian officials also said a Tunisian army helicopter had crashed because of mechanical problems in the border area, killing the pilot and co-pilot.

‘Gaddafi is finished’

The siege of Tripoli and the prospect of a battle for the capital have added urgency to the question of Gaddafi’s fate. The leader has repeatedly vowed never to leave the country. Rebels say they will not stop fighting until he is gone.

Representatives of the two sides held talks early this week in a Tunisian resort, attended by a former French prime minister, but announced no breakthrough.

The severing of the road link between Tripoli and Tunisia makes further talks difficult.

A Tunisian official source said Libya’s senior oil official, Omran Abukraa, had arrived in Tunisia after deciding not to return to Tripoli from a trip to Italy.

If confirmed, it would be the third apparent defection of a senior Gaddafi associate this week. A senior security official arrived in Rome on Monday, and rebels said on Friday that Gaddafi’s estranged former deputy Abdessalam Jalloud had joined their side.

In Az Zawiyah’s central square on Saturday, residents were burning and stamping on a green Gaddafi flag.

“Gaddafi is finished. Civilians are starting to come back to the cities. Libya is finally free,” said one, who gave his name as Abu Khaled.

In a nearby alley, residents had gathered to stare at the bodies of two Gaddafi soldiers lying in the street. Gunfire and explosions could be heard in the distance.

Rebels said the main Gaddafi force had retreated about 10km east to the town of Jaddayim and was shelling Az Zawiyah from there.

East of the capital, where fighting has been bloodier and rebel advances far slower, opposition forces fought street battles in the city of Zlitan and suffered heavy casualties, a Reuters reporter said on Friday.

A rebel spokesman said 32 rebel fighters were killed and 150 wounded.

Gaddafi’s spokesman Moussa Ibrahim said late on Friday the government’s military held the upper hand in both Az Zawiyah and Zlitan.

The sudden imposition of a siege around Tripoli has trapped its residents and cut them off from fuel and food.

The International Organisation for Migration said on Friday it would organise a rescue operation to evacuate thousands of foreign workers, probably by sea.

PROJECTS IN GAZA

Together for the happiness of our children

I hope that this is the beginning of this work will give our children the opportunity for stability and make them happy.
Two years ago in the town of Gaza, Palestine, a fierce war was carried  out by Israel which burned through the trees, the stone and everything  beautiful.  The death toll and patients was very large and overwhelmed  the emergency services. During the short time frame of 22 days, which  killed nearly 1500 Palestinians, and injured nearly 5000. Hundreds of  victims were children, which included many cases of disability and limb  amputation causing lifelong damage to these innocent citizens. Tens of  thousands of homes were destroyed along with acres of agricultural land.  Needless to say the effects of war have terrorized the children and  made their psychological states complex. This has led us to create a  project to remove children from the atmosphere of war and terror and the  tragic situation that they have found themselves in. We hope to  recreate a positive atmosphere, through entertainment and allowing them  experience fun in life once more. We have decided to start these  projects to be entertainment primarily in order to instill  happiness in  their lives from a young age so they are less prone to the afflictions  of their psychological conditions.
As a result we need to make a call  to all people who have the ability to contribute to the well-being of  our children, to help them and make them happy, and to place  constructive, beautiful ideals in their minds. Your help will allow us  to facilitate the implementation of projects within the city of Gaza,  where we will document the activities with pictures and video so you too  can share our confidence and contribute vital feedback to allow us to  move forward and implement larger projects. Thank you so very much.

Project  Objectives:
1 – the provision of recreational life for the children to  change the shock and horror they experienced during the war.
2 –  Treatment of children from mental illness as a result of war and  violence.
3 – To stimulate the children with gifts and prizes, and  through hobbies allow them to express their humanity.
4 – To promote in a  new generation the security and peace of mankind and breaking cycles of  violence and aggression. 5 – Our ambition is to develop this project to  cover the largest possible number of children in Gaza City, and the  implementation of larger projects in the future.
Needs of the  project:
1 – Qualified members are needed to be able to carry  responsibility towards children and provide them with full care and  follow-up groups that will be divided according to the number of  children (been primed).
2 – Consumer Electronics to document the  activities that are performed: (Photo camera – video camera).
3 –  Financial resources to cover the expenses of the project and purchase  requirements. Please note that all participants will be on volunteers.
Steps of the project:
– Processing of qualified volunteers and members of the distribution to receive groups of children.
–  The provision of recreational areas that will be our goal which is  within the scope of the city of Gaza and most important: the beach –  park games – travel land and sea – visit universities – visit hospitals.
– Photography of these activities and the sending of these to donors and supporters of the project.

The Termination of “Israel”- a Qur’anic Fact

By Sheikh Abu Al-Waleed Al-Ansari,

Translated by Abu Al-Waleed Al-Hamawi

It is evident that Allah has Promised to subject upon the corrupted Children of Israel His believing servants who will afflict them with a horrible torment…

Praise be to Allah who grants dominance to whom He wills and deprives it of whom He wills. He is the Enricher and the Preventer. He the Almighty Says:

“And so are the days (good and not so good), We give to men by turns, that Allah may test those who believe, and that He may take martyrs from among you. And Allah likes not the Zalimun” [Qur’an 3:140].

Peace and blessings upon His servant and messenger who was sent as a Mercy to this world. He (saws) said: “Verily, this matter (i.e. this Religion) will reach what the night and the day has reached (i.e. the whole earth). Allah will not exclude an urban nor a nomad household without which this religion would have entered” [Reported by Ahmad].

During these times when the affliction upon the people of Islam is exacerbated, Islam continues to suffer ruthless attacks by its cunning enemies. These are the times of hardship and agony when the Muslim struggles to convince himself about the reality of the inverted facts. This is expected when polytheism becomes religious monotheism, when adulation of the enemies of Allah is regarded as wisdom and craftiness, when slackening to support and defend the oppressed Muslims is a sign of intelligence and aptitude. In short, when truth becomes falsehood and falsehood becomes truth. Living these critical times, one feels the urgent need of those honest and trustworthy people of knowledge and religion who are sincere to Allah, His Book, His Messenger and to the Imams of the Muslims and their common folk.

Unfortunately, we observe that many of those who claim to have knowledge are negligent in declaring the truth and in inviting people to it. Instead they garnish the falsehood and dissolute its identity in order to justify their negligence while accepting the transient adornments of this world. This lead the ignorant blind-followers to regard the statements made by these false men of religion as true evidence to dismiss them from preparing for revival.

One of the consequences of this chronic disease that was caught by the Muslim Ummah is the content and approval of our people when the infidel rulers of today held a permanent accord with the Jews. Those who did not approve this accord were nevertheless influenced by the fabrications made by those rulers and said: “The presence of the Jews on the land of Palestine has become an unavoidable reality that we must accept. The Ummah must now be prepared to deal with it!!”. There are also those poor and defeated people who thought that this cursed accord will relieve their difficulties. The best of those people were crying: “Land in exchange for peace”. All those people overlooked the fact that this is a matter of Kufr and Iman and that it is a trial from Allah to test His servants and to distinguish the wicked from the good, and to witness those who will give victory to the religion by sincerely fighting for Allah’s Cause, as He the Most High said:

“Do you think that you shall be left alone while Allah has not yet tested those among you who have striven hard and fought and have not taken Walijah [(helpers, consultants from disbelievers, pagans, etc.) giving openly to them their secrets] besides Allah and His Messenger, and the believers. Allah is Well-Aquatinted with what you do” [Qur’an 9:16],

“Or think you that you will enter Paradise without such (trials) as came to those who passed away before you? They were afflicted with severe poverty and ailments and were so shaken that even the Messenger and those who believed along with him said, ‘When (will come) the Help of Allah?’ Yes! Certainly, the Help of Allah is near!” [Qur’an 2:214].

Indeed it is a trial and an affliction by Allah who promised to give victory, honour and consolidation to the believers. There is no doubt that disbelief and falsehood will be abolished, in particular the state of the Jews who earned Allah’s Anger, the murderers of the Prophets and the enemies of the Messengers. The termination of this state is announced in the Book of our Lord and proclaimed by our Prophet (saws).

Allah (swt) States: “And we decreed for the Children of Israel in the Scripture, that indeed you would do mischief on the earth twice and you will become tyrants and extremely arrogant! So, when the promise came for the first of the two, We sent against you slaves of Ours given to terrible warfare. They entered the very innermost parts of your homes. And it was a promise (completely) fulfilled. Then We gave you once again, a return of victory over them. And We helped you with wealth and children and made you more numerous in manpower. (And We said): ‘If you do well, you do good for your ownselves, and if you do evil (you do it) against yourselves’. Then, when the second promise came to pass, (We permitted your enemies) to make your faces sorrowful and to enter the mosque (of Jerusalem) as they had entered it before, and to destroy with utter destruction all that fell in their hands. [And We Said in the Taurat (Torah)]: ‘It may be that your Lord may show mercy unto you, but if you return (to sins), We shall return (to Our Punishment). And We have made Hell a prison for the disbelievers” [Qur’an 17:4-8].

In the previous verses, Allah (swt) mentions how the Children of Israel rebelled and disobeyed the Command of Allah, and how they became extremely arrogant. The Qur’anic Mufasiroon (commentators) – May Allah have mercy upon them – have lengthily described how the Jews did mischief on this earth twice. Most of them report that the doing of mischief twice had passed when the Jews killed Zachariah (as) and then killed Yahiah (John) son of Zachariah (as). However, the scholar Al-Shinqeety -may Allah have mercy on him- says in his Tafseer (Adwa’ul-Bayaan), that their conclusions were based on Israi’liat (Jewish reports). Al-Shinqeety in commenting on the verse ‘But if you return (to sins), We shall return (to Our Punishment)’, says:

“The Most High explains how he decreed for the Children of Israel in the Scripture, that indeed they will do mischief on the earth twice. When the first promise came, He sent against them slaves of His given to terrible warfare who occupied their homes and tortured them. Then, when the second promise came to pass, He sent to them a tribe that made their faces sorrowful and who entered the mosque (of Jerusalem) as they had entered it before, and who destroyed with utter destruction all that fell in their hands. He (swt) also explained that if they return to doing mischief for the third time, then He will return to take revenge from them by subjecting their enemies upon them ‘but if you return (to sins), We shall return (to Our Punishment)’.

Moreover, Allah (swt) did not explain here whether they have or have not returned to mischief for the third time. However, He did indicate in many other verses that they have returned to mischief by disbelieving in the Messenger [i.e. Muhammad (saws)], by covering his characteristics that are mentioned in their books, and by breaking their covenant with him and supporting his enemies, and many of their other hideous habits. So Allah (swt) has retaliated to fulfil ‘but if you return (to sins), We shall return (to Our Punishment)’ by sending His Prophet (saws) and the Muslims upon Bani Quraitha and An-Naddeer, Bani Qainuqa’ and Khaybar where they were killed, made captives and expelled, and those who remained were forced to pay the Jiziah, so that they were deprived and dishonored. Among the verses that prove their return to mischief is the Sayings of the Most High:

‘And when there came to them (the Jews), a Book (this Qur’an) from Allah confirming what is with them [Torah and the Gospel], although a foretime they had invoked Allah [for coming of Muhammad (saws] in order to gain victory over those who disbelieved, then when there came to them that which they had recognized, they disbelieved in it. So let the Curse of Allah be on the disbelievers. How bad is that for which they have sold their ownselves, that they should disbelieve in that which Allah has revealed (the Qur’an), grudging that Allah should reveal of His Grace unto whom He wills of His slaves. So they have drawn on themselves wrath upon wrath. And for the disbelievers, there is disgracing torment’ [Qur’an 2:88-90],

and His Saying: ‘Is it not (the case) that every time they make a covenant, some party among them throws it aside?’ [Qur’an 2:100],

and His Saying: ‘And you will not cease to discover deceit in them..’ [Qur’an 5:13],

and His Saying: ‘And those of the people of the Scripture backed them (the disbelievers) – Allah brought them down from their forts and cast terror into their hearts, (so that) a group (of them) you killed, and a group (of them) you made captives. And He caused you to inherit their lands, and their houses, and their riches, and a land, which you had not trodden (before)’ [Qur’an 33:26-27]”. [Adwa’ ul-Bayaan 3/408]

It is evident that Allah has Promised to subject upon the corrupted Children of Israel His believing servants who will afflict them with a horrible torment. And here they are today, they have become tyrants and extremely arrogant, they have spoiled the tillage and the progeny and caused mischief on earth. We ask the Almighty to hasten His Promise for He has Stated:

“And (remember when your Lord declared that He would certainly keep on sending against them (ie. the Jews), till the Day of Resurrection, those who would afflict them with a humiliating torment. Verily, your Lord is Quick in Retribution (for the disobedient, wicked) and certainly He is Oft-Forgiving (for the obedient and those who beg Allah’s Forgiveness)” [Qur’an 7:167].

Commenting on this verse, Ibn Katheer reports how Mousa (as) forced the Jews to pay land tax, then they were conquered by the Greeks, the Kashdanies and others, then they were surmounted and degraded by the Christians, then when Muhammad (saws) came, they were under Islam’s subjugation and custody, compelled to pay the land tax and Jiziah. Finally, their end will come when they emerge as supporters of Ad-Dajjal (Anti-Christ), who will be killed by Eesa bin Maryam (Jesus) (as) and the Muslims. This battle will take place at the end of time. [Tafseer Ibn Katheer 2/288]

The Praiseworthy Said: “The Jews say: ‘Allah’s Hand is tied up (ie. He does not give or spend of His Bounty)’. Be their hands tied up and be they accursed for what they uttered. Nay, both His Hands are widely outstretched. He spends (of His Bounty) as He wills. Verily, the Revelation that has come to you from Allah increases in most of them their obstinate rebellion and disbelief. We have put enmity and hatred amongst them till the Day of Resurrection. Every time they kindled the fire of war, Allah extinguished it; and they (ever) strive to make mischief on earth. And Allah does not like the Mufsidun (mischief-makers)” [5:64].

In this verse, Allah (swt) revealed how their Kuffr, extreme envy and departure from the truth, led them to deceive the believers. He (swt) further revealed that He will defend His believing servants and will repel the conspiracy of the Jews in two ways:

Firstly, He (swt) has put enmity and hatred amongst them till the Day of Resurrection, they will never agree upon the truth so long as they deny and disbelieve in the Prophet (saws).

“You would think they were united, but their hearts are divided” [59:14].

Secondly, Allah (swt) has promised to extinguish every fire of war they kindle. Hence, every time they betrayed the Prophet (saws) and the Muslims or continue to contest the religion of Allah, He the Almighty abolishes their cunning ambitions.

It is important for the Muslim to know the characteristics of the Jews that are mentioned in Allah’s Book because it will be these characteristics that will initiate their downfall and humiliation. Some of these distinctive characteristics of the Jews are explained below:

They like to spread mischief and corruption on earth and strive hard to accomplish this, “and they (ever) strive to make mischief on earth. And Allah does not like the Mufsidun (mischief-makers)” [5:64].
They have incurred the Curse and Wrath of Allah. The consensus opinion of the Imams of Tafseer regarding the people asserted in the verse, “those who earned Your Anger” [1:7] is the Jews. This opinion is supported by the Allah’s Saying:
“Say [O Muhammad (saws) to the people of the Scripture]: ‘Shall I inform you of something worse than that, regarding the recompense from Allah: those who incurred the Curse of Allah and His Wrath, those of whom (some) He transformed into monkeys and swine’s, those who worshiped Taghut (false deities); such are worse in rank (on the Day of Resurrection in Hell-fire), and far more astray from the Right Path (in the life of this world)” [5:60].
They are people of indignity, disobedience and transgression as Stated by Allah (swt): “Indignity is put over them wherever they may be, except when under a covenant (of protection) from Allah, and from men; they have drawn on themselves the Wrath of Allah, and destruction is put over them. This is because they disbelieved in the Ayats (evidences, verses, revelations, etc.) of Allah and killed the Prophets without right. This is because they disobeyed (Allah) and used to transgress beyond bounds (in Allah’s disobedience, crimes and sins)” [3:112].
They are people of cowardliness, dismay and weakness as described by Allah (swt): “They fight not against you even together, except in fortified townships, or from behind walls. Their enmity among themselves is very great” [59:14],
“and if they fight against you, they will show you their backs, and they will not be helped” [3:111].
As a result of the above, they tend to adhere strongly to this life even if it was a humiliating villainous life, as Allah Said:
“And verily, you will find them (the Jews) the greediest of mankind for life..” [2:96].
Furthermore, they will always remain divided and disagreed among themselves; and conceal enmity and hatred towards each other as verified by Allah (swt): “We have put enmity and hatred amongst them till the Day of Resurrection” [5:64]. and “You would think they were united, but their hearts are divided” [59:14].
This is a great advantage for Muslims since during wars and fighting, their ranks will disunite and their assemblies will disintegrate.
If one is to follow the stories of the Jews in Surat Al-Baqarah, Al-A’araf and others, and how they treated their prophets, one would find wonders. Their disbelief and rejection of the Message of Allah with utmost arrogance is the true nature of the Jews. That is why no deviant nation has been Cursed by Allah more than that of the children of Israel. They truly earned the Wrath and Resentment of Allah, and thus they have lost all the factors of survival and existence.

As for the glad tidings of the Sunnah which were articulated by the trusted and the trustworthy Muhammad (saws), Ibn Umar (ra) narrates that the Prophet (saws) said: “The Dajjal (anti-Christ) will appear behind the city, then Allah will exploit the Muslims to kill his followers, so that the Jew would hide under a tree or (behind) a stone, and that tree or stone will say to the Muslim: ‘There is a Jew (hiding behind me)! Kill him’ ” [Reported by Imam Ahmad in his Musnad].

The Prophet’s (saws) saying, ‘You will fight the Jews’ is addressed to the Companions; however, within the context it intends those who come after them. The above mentioned Ahadeeth and others confirm the occurrence of a battle with the Jews wherein they will be killed. Those Ahadeeth embody great tidings for this Ummah, which are the continuity of the religion of Islam till the time when E’esa bin Maryam (as) descends and the continual existence of the Supported Group (At-Ta’ifah Al-Mansoorah) which will continue to fight till he (as) descends as stated by the Prophet (saws):

“There will always remain a group from among my Ummah who will continue to fight by the truth, they are apparent to those who oppose them, until the last (followers) of them fight the Maseeh Ad-Dajjal” [Reported by Ahmad and Abu Dawood].

The Ahadeeth that describes At-Taai’fah Al-Mansoorah are famous and numerous in both of the Saheehs and other compilations. Many of the Sahabah (ra) narrated the descriptions of this group which include the fact that they establish Allah’s Commands, and that they are supported and upheld by Allah (swt).

The above mentioned sacred verses and narrations indicate that this Ummah has been promised victory and consolidation when it abides by the prerequisite causative means, ie. when it arms itself with steeds of war and prepares itself to fight for the Cause of Allah (swt). Thereafter, the State of the Jews will perish.

Gaza, (Pal Telegraph) – Many media outlets adopt the Israeli
accounts without making sure about its validity. The attack in Eilat which claimed the lives of
7 Israelis was vivid that it has targeted armed soldiers. Yet, Israeli media
outlets led by Haaretz said “People” were killed, afterwards we have seen photos
of the scene where military bags indicate it was a military target.

Sadly, all professional media outlets circulated that one
side of the story without carrying out any journalistic efforts. BBC, CNN, AFP,
Reuters and the key outlets said that civilians were attacked in Israeli resort
in Eilat. Shortly, contradictions started to arise as Israeli army released
photos of some of the killed soldiers. Haaretz, published a piece of news showing
Israeli PM visiting some soldiers in the hospital.

Moving to the Palestinian side, Israel retaliated quickly and
killed a number of Palestinian freedom fighters. A child has been killed in the
area as the attack took place within a very densely populated area. However, no
single Palestinian factions claimed the responsibility of the Eilat attacks.

In the same night, Israel launched further attacks and killed
a number of civilians including a boy aged 13. We can’t really confirm if this
boy was a terrorist or not!

Yesterday, a Palestinian medic, his 5-year-old child, Islam
and his brother were killed in Gaza city. They were targeted by a drone while in
a motorcycle. None of the media outlets presented their story with balance yet
they continue their bias saying Israel is responding to the Palestinian
terror.

The boy Islam Qaraqi is 5 years old. The photo above shows
what happened to him. He was grilled like by the Israeli attack rockets.

Islam was about to join his KG1 within days. His parents
bought him some stationary and a nice bag. He didn’t wear his new clothing
yet!

Sarcastically, we “believe” Israel killed this child because
he planned the attacks in Israel. This little child is responsible for the death
of many Israeli soldiers! Israel killed him in act of self-defense! This child
is responsible for that terror in Israel which is like the terror in 9-11 in the
US, 7/7 in London and Madrid bombings!

Yet again, Israel uses the term “terror” to justify its acts.
However, terrorism has not been defined yet. What’s happening in Palestine is
not terror but a kind of resistance of people under occupation. That resistance is guaranteed by International
law. It’s the same of the American resistance in quest of independence and the
British one against the Nazis.

Israeli troops fire tear gas at childrens’ rally

QALQILIYA (Ma’an) — Israeli forces fired tear gas at a childrens’ demonstration on Friday near Qalqiliya in the northern West Bank, a Ma’an correspondent reported.

The weekly rally is held to protest Israel’s closure of the eastern entrance to Kafr Qaddum, a village near Israel’s separation wall.

The eastern gate to the village has been closed for nine years.

A Ma’an reporter said most of the demonstrators were under 12 years old.
