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

    In his new play Mr. Goldberg Goes to Tel Aviv, playwright Oren Safdie tackles an issue that he has a major concern with: the relationship between Israelis and left-leaning Diaspora Jews with their “I know better” critical views. At the heart of the one-act play is Tony, a Jewish and gay Palestinian sympathizer who expresses strong anti-Israel sentiments when the play begins and at one point even sides with a Palestinian terrorist who holds his captive. Tony, who is also an [...]

    On 75th Anniversary, Looking at the Jewish Influence on Gone With the Wind

    JNS.org – The 75th anniversary of the premiere of “Gone with the Wind” on Dec. 15 presents an opportunity to examine the Jewish influence on one of the most popular films of all time. That influence starts with the American Civil War epic’s famed producer, David O. Selznick. Adjusted for inflation, “Gone with the Wind” remains the highest-grossing movie ever made. It earned the 1939 Academy Award for Best Picture, the same honor another Selznick film, “Rebecca,” garnered in 1940. Selznick [...]

    ‘Sheriff of Mars’ Unveils Endearing Life of Jewish Music Star Hidden in the Fields of France

    JNS.org – It was an era of steel strings, guitar heroes, and storytellers—high on heroin, rebellious. Outlaw country music, the hallmark of Nashville’s powerful and angry music scene of the 1970s, was the brew of greats such as Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, and Townes Van Zandt. But there is another, little-known music hero of that era: Daniel Antopolsky. A Jewish lad from Augusta, Ga.—the son of immigrants who settled in the south and ran a hardware store on Main Street—the [...]

On the 12th of May, the Zionist Executive met to decide what to do. Moshe Sharrett had just returned [...]
