FROM WND'S JERUSALEM BUREAU

Abbas' group threatens suicide bombings

'There are martyrs on their way to Israeli cities'

NAZARETH – Less than a day after rival Fatah and Hamas factions signed an agreement to form a unity government, the declared military wing of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah party today threatened to immediately send suicide bombers into Israel.

"There are martyrs on their way to Israeli cities. We will keep sending bombers until we infiltrate and carry out an attack," Abu Nasser, deputy commander of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades in the northern West Bank, told WND.

Together with the Islamic Jihad group, Fatah's Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades has taken responsibility for every suicide bombing in Israel the last two years, including a bombing two weeks ago in Eilat and an attack in Tel Aviv last April that killed eight Israelis and American teenager Daniel Wultz.

Abu Nasser claimed his terror group was attempting suicide bombings in Israel in response to Israeli renovation work near the Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem to replace a ramp that provides access to a gate that lead to the Mount.

Necessary small excavations preceding the construction of the new ramp have sparked widespread Arab opposition, with Muslim leaders claiming the work will damage the Temple Mount.

Israel maintains the work, taking place in the Jewish Quarter outside the Temple Mount, poses no threat whatsoever to the Mount and that all excavations are being conducted under public transparency.

The leaders of several other major Palestinian terror groups, including Islamic Jihad, and the Hamas-linked Popular Resistance Committees, also told WND today they were sending suicide bombers into Israel.

Israeli security officials say the threats from the terror groups are credible. They say security forces are on high alert for suicide bombings and that they have specific intelligence of at least 19 planned attacks for the next 48-hours.

While the terror groups claimed their planned attacks are in protest of Israel's Temple Mount construction, Israeli security officials say it might be an attempt by Fatah and Hamas to focus attention on fighting Israel so Palestinian infighting doesn't torpedo a national unity agreement forged in Mecca last night.

The formation of a unity government follows months of deadly clashes after Abbas called for new Palestinian elections in a move widely seen as an attempt to dismantle the Hamas-led PA. The Qatari satellite channel Al-Jazeera aired images from the signing ceremony, attended by Abbas, Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah and Hamas chief Khaled Meshaal.

The deal sets out the principles of the unity government, including an end to internal Palestinian fighting; a respect for old peace deals with Israel; and negotiations for Hamas to become a partner in all aspects of the Palestinian government.

The agreement does not call for the new Palestinian unity government to recognize Israel and does not commit Hamas to abide by previous peace deals with Israel, only to "respect" the previous peace deals.

Meanwhile today Muslim riots broke out on the Temple Mount following Friday afternoon prayers at the Al Aqsa Mosque. The Western Wall plaza, below the Temple Mount, was evacuated by Israeli authorities after Arab men threw stones at the plaza.

Israeli police are closely monitoring large Muslim protests convening today in Nazareth, and throughout the West Bank.

The Temple Mount has long been used by Palestinians as a pretence to start violence. The Palestinian intifada that began in 2000 started with rock throwing on the Temple Mount after then-candidate for prime minister Ariel Sharon visited the holy site.

Aaron Klein is WorldNetDaily's Jerusalem bureau chief, whose past interview subjects have included Yasser Arafat, Ehud Barak, Mahmoud al-Zahar and leaders of the Taliban.

Sounds like a declaration of war to me. How long does Israel have to put up with this stuff?
When will the world realize they cannot tolerate this kind of thing forever?

I heard it mentioned that they were considering putting cams up to monitor activity. I would have done this a long time ago.

I wrote to FNC this morning and asked if they would consider calling it the Jews holiest site instead of constantly referring to it as the Muslim 3rd holiest site.

'There are martyrs on their way to Israeli cities'

If this is the case, then I suggest that Israel begin to do what the arabs have been accusing them of for years. Shut down all so-called palestinian controlled areas, with a 24x7 curfew, shooting anyone found outside. Then kick them out of ISRAEL! Every damned one of them.

"I wrote to FNC this morning and asked if they would consider calling it the Jews holiest site instead of constantly referring to it as the Muslim 3rd holiest site."

Temple Mount, Judaism holiest site for over 3,000 years, only became the "3rd holiest site in Islam" in the 1930's (when the JOOOOOOZ started militating for a state, i.e. it is political).

Islam is a fraud, and this particular fraud is only the tip of the iceberg.

I couldn't agree more - if you're going to be accused of doing X, and pay some kind of a price for doing X, then you might as well actually DO X and get some benefit from it.

List making can be dangerous but it goes without saying that the palies (small p used to denote disrespect) are at the bottom of the civilized peoples list.

Yup- and don't forget the hand-wringing too

Now that Ban Ki Moon is the new U.N secretary- we'll see how he reacts to this- hopefully he'll act MUCH better than Kofi Anal did

Hmm. Putin was a KGB bigshot, right? And Russia is a member of the laughable "Quartet," right? Maybe we should out-source this problem to the KGB. When Nasser's head appears at Abbas' door the next morning, then maybe we can expect some progress in the MidEast "peace(sic) process."

Yeah, Putin's one of the siloviki [ex-KGB spooks or those working for its successor organisation, the KGB itself having been officially dissolved in December 1991, a few weeks before officil finis to the Soviet Union itself] who made his bones coming up through the ranks of the KGB. It was later in the post-KGB-era, though, on 25 July 1998, that Boris Yeltsin appointed Vladimir Putin to head the FSB, the position Putin occupied until August 1999.

There's about one FSB chekisti for every 300 citizens of the new Russian Federation, so there are plenty of opportunities for a young up-and-comer to advance, and pleanty of mediocre souls whose heads never rise above those of their fellows. But it's the worker bees in the KGB/FSB foreign intelligence directorate who earn the big bucks, and that was where Putin clearly scored his biggest successes.

But if I were you, I wouldn't be expecting to see the FSB collecting Abu Nassar's head anytime soon, since the smart money has been suggesting that the recent successes that the British have had in uncovering Jihadist plots in Great Britain have come following helpful FSB tipoffs. Accordingly, I'd not expect to see the Russians start liquidating their best information sources and shut off that intelligence pipeline. Whether Abu Nassar is one of those, or is just part of the *forest* of trees among which those who are can blend in makes little differences. Like the KGB before it, the FSB hedges its bets.

As with Arafat, Israel's first considerations would be: with him gone, who then will fill the vacuum....and how then will he prove his worthiness toi the others.

That is a liberal view point. What is the position Isreal has had since 1948? Their potential elimination from the planet, genocide, and the loss of their identity. They knew from the beginning of this political evolution, that their movement into the forefront of world politics would end up as an up hill battle.

We see Omert as a disfunctional leader, barely surviving a potential coup, by his own people after almost selling the Isrealis down the river and acquiescing to the demands of the Arabs.

In the recent history of these people, when has appeasement been in their dialect?

Not until recently.

someone will always step into the fray, and pose a problem to them. Such has been the way of the Jew from the beginning of their religion over the numerous millenia of their existance.

By the way, in my unhumble opinion - you're going to love this - Arabs and Persians are not worthy of anything.

Israel's a technologically advanced country - design a MOAB shaped like a meteor, launch it into space from an undisclosed location then have it drop back to Earth right on top of the Dome of the Rock.

It'll look like an accident, and they can always claim it was an act of God ;)
