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

She explained: “Actors changed. We suffered financial and legal challenges. We endured so many replacements. There were delays. […]

    The Collected Works of Primo Levi, Edited by Ann Goldstein (REVIEW)

    Primo Levi and Elie Wiesel were the two most immediate and authentic literary voices who gave witness to the Holocaust. Wiesel was an extrovert and a very public figure who wrote initially in French. Levi was a modest retiring chemist who wrote in Italian. Whereas Wiesel was rooted in the Eastern European Jewish Hassidic world, Levi was the product of an assimilated, secular Italian society that saw itself as Italian first and Jewish as an accident of birth. As Levi himself said, “At Auschwitz I […]

    Wine Brings Judea and Samaria to Tel Aviv

    JNS.org – Wine has long been considered a social lubricant, and it’s Nir Lavie’s hope that wine from his Har Bracha Winery in the Samarian hills will serve as a social lubricant between the city-goers of Tel Aviv and the Jewish communities of Judea and Samaria, two locales split geographically, and often politically, on the left and right of the country. The new flagship store of Har Bracha has recently popped its corks on 190 Ben Yehuda Street in Tel Aviv, […]
