During a “victory” celebration today in Gaza Hamas terror leader Ismail Haniyeh called on Palestinians in the West Bank to launch a third Intifada.

“We are waiting for the Palestinians in the West Bank to damage settlements, the separation barrier and checkpoints. Join our fellow insurgents in the Gaza Strip. Then there will be a real unity,” he said, according to a translation.

Crowds took to the streets in Gaza Thursday to celebrate what Hamas declared as a victory against Israel’s military campaign, Operation Pillar of Defense. A ceasefire was announced Wednesday night after 8 days of fighting.

“This historic victory is the beginning of the liberation of all of Palestine and the liberation of Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque, and the release of all Palestinian prisoners,” he cried. “Gaza will not return to what it was. The siege and political and economic isolation of the Gaza Strip has ended and will not come back. The Occupation will think again before starting a war against the opposition and against another Arab country.”

According to Maariv, during the celebrations one man was wounded and three were injured when rounds of munitions were fired off.

On Wednesday Hamas terror chief Khaled Meshaal spoke with Christiane Amanpour in an interview on CNN. When pressed as to whether or not he would recognize Israel he said, according to a translation provided by CNN, “I accept a state of the 1967.  How can I accept Israel?  They have occupied my land.  I need recognition, not the Israelis.  This is a reversed question.”

He also said that an agreement would have to come based “according to the border of 1967 with the right to return.”

    Israel will remain kosher for as long as I’m alive!!!

  • At least no one is under any illusions about the cease fire or the farce of a peace process anymore.

  • Why have we not learned our lesson from all of our previous experiences in dealing with such thugs as Hamas, Hizbullah and the like. Whatever they say or do we must think the opposite. Their Cease fire is really a time for them to re-group and catch their breath before resuming their attacks, When will the world wake up and see it for what it is. They are liars and cutthroats and will always try to kill us.
    We are more than ready to begin the ground war-let’s do it and eradicate the Hamas scum. The world will be better off without them and their leaders.

  • When Hamas calls for a third intigafa it is simply following its charter which calls for the murder of six million Jews. Every Muslim who has ever voted for Hamas or said anything positive about Hamas supports this sociopathic charter and is therefore also a sociopath..
    All of these Muslims ( are there any other.kind? ) are following the example of a sociopath called Muhammad who had 900 unarmed Jews decapitated at Quaraza..

  • This delusional Muslim will not have his wishes fulfilled which are: the return of Israel to indefensible 1948 borders (same as pre-1967) and the right of return.

    He and his ilk waged a war and lost. So much for a return to 1948 borders.

    As for the ‘right of return’ it has already been achieved; the Jews are back in their ancestral homeland Israel. It is the land in which they lived for over 2,000 years prior to the advent of Islam.

    Put that in your hookah and smoke it – Ismail Haniyeh

    ‘Tears of Color’ Art Exhibit Shows Struggles of Israelis With Eating Disorders

    JNS.org – “This is how I want to be—without fear. Independent. I want to be like a bird. I want to spread my wings.” So reads part of the description beneath one of the 30 paintings on display until the end of May at the ZOA House in Tel Aviv. The collection represents the first-ever art exhibit of its kind: an exhibit created entirely by Israelis in treatment for eating disorders. Dubbed “Tears of Color,” based on one of the [...]

    Overprotective or Loving? Daughters Reflect on Jewish Mothers in New Anthology

    JNS.org – Rachel Ament noticed that she and her friends often shared humorous anecdotes that were typically variations on a theme: overprotective, worrying Jewish moms who smothered them with love. That included Ament’s own mother. “My mom is probably every Jewish stereotype scrunched into one,” the Washington, DC, resident tells JNS.org. “At the root of all these stereotypical, worrying, overprotective moms, is love.” A social media writer for Capital One, as well as a freelance writer, Ament decided about three years [...]

    ‎Kosher Lust: Love is Not the Answer (REVIEW)

    Kosher Lust, by Shmuley Boteach (Gefen Publishing House, 2014). You really do want to find something positive to say about Shmuley Boteach. He is a phenomenon; very bright, an articulate bundle of energy and self-promotion. Anyone who has the chutzpah to describe himself as “America’s Rabbi” deserves ten out of ten for effort. I believe that along with most Chabad alumni, official and unofficial, he does a lot of good and is a sort of national treasure. In this world [...]

    JNS.org – In a throwback to the golden age of cinema, Hollywood has declared 2014 the “Year of the Bible.” From Ridley Scott’s Exodus starring Christian Bale as Moses, to Russell Crowe playing Noah, Hollywood is gambling on new innovations in technology and star power to revisit some of the most popular stories ever told. “It’s definitely a throwback to the 1950s and early ’60s,” Dr. Stephen J. Whitfield, an American Studies professor at Brandeis University, told JNS.org. Starting with The [...]

    JNS.org – Has the era of large-scale biblical epics returned? Not since “The Ten Commandments” has there been so much torrential water on the big screen (not counting weather-related disaster films such as “The Impossible”) than in “Noah,” the latest blockbuster from writer and director Darren Aronofsky. “Noah” takes the traditional tale and splices it in an eco-friendly and psychologically driven plot. After Adam and Eve got booted out of the Garden of Eden and after Cain killed Abel, mankind [...]
