    Hamas issues new orders for an escalation in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem, while Fatah says it can 'blow up buses in Tel Aviv.' Hamas in Gaza has ordered its terrorists in Judea and Samaria to conduct suicide bombings in the region as well as in Jerusalem, in a call that has Israeli security forces preparing against potential bombings that could reach anywhere in the country. The terror group has praised the current wave of attacks that have mostly consisted of stabbings, but the new orders on the ground could see a return of the explosive attacks that were common during...

    Hamas spokesperson Isra Al-Mudallal, said in a TV interview on Friday that journalists who filmed “places from where missiles were launched” were forced by security personnel to stop or leave the Gaza Strip. According to a new report by MEMRI (the Middle East Media Research Institute, Mudallal, told the Lebanese TV station Mayadeen TV by Skype that some journalists “would focus on filming the places from where missiles were launched.” “Thus, they were collaborating with the occupation,” said Mudallal, the head of foreign relations in the Hamas Information Ministry. “These journalists were deported from the Gaza Strip. The security agencies...

    A ceasefire is now in place between Israel and Hamas after thousands of missile exchanges. While the main stream media focuses on these events, and the world leaders are engaged to find a ultimate solution, what could be taking place is “a smoke screen” and just another diversion tactic by the Islamic Regime in Iran. While the attention is on the conflict the quarterly report by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has issued warning about the escalation of underground nuclear work at the fordow site.

    Britain expels an Israeli diplomat on Tuesday to rebuke Israel for its alleged use of forged British passports in the assassination of a Hamas operative in a suspected Mossad hit, a UK government official said. Foreign Secretary David Miliband addressed Parliament over the issue, following an investigation into the use of 12 fake UK passports in the incident. The Foreign Secretary has said there are “compelling reasons” to believe Israel is behind the cloned British passports used by the alleged killers of a Hamas official in Dubai.

    Former senator George Mitchell’s new role as US Middle East representative has been hailed in this region as one more positive gesture towards Arabs and Muslims by President Barack Obama. For a long time Obama’s positive, even “pro-Arab”, image in this region has been built on superficial factors - his skin colour, his father’s Muslim faith, and his middle name, Hussein - rather than a careful evaluation of his policies. Similarly naive perceptions are now being applied to Mitchell, primarily based on his Lebanese ancestry. Many noted with justification that Mitchell at least was not Dennis Ross, a stalwart supporter...

    RAMALLAH, West Bank — Jimmy Carter reportedly hugged — and kissed — a Hamas leader Tuesday in the West Bank on a Mideast visit that will culminate in a meeting with the terror group's exiled leader in Syria later this week. Carter's embrace of Nasser Shaer, a senior Hamas politician, at a closed-door reception organized by Carter's office was reported by several news outlets Tuesday. Carter has been widely criticized over the trip by both U.S. and Israeli officials, who have listed Hamas as a terror organization. Carter also laid a wreath at the grave of Yasser Arafat, whom he...

They would have you believe, he says, that there are excuses for terrorism. Which brings us to part one. Parts two, three, and four follow. Update: It’s excellent.

    Israeli papers disagree on the methods the government should use to free an Israeli soldier currently being held by Palestinian militants. Elsewhere in the Arab world, papers mix fierce criticism of Israel's actions with indignation at the West's reaction to the soldier's abduction. Some commentators accuse Israel of involvement in "ethnic cleansing", "genocide" and "racist extermination". ISRAEL'S HA'ARETZ For the advocates of battle and of 'landing the blow', it is best to remember that fighting in the Gaza alleyways, from house to house, basement to basement, while shooting into balconies, would translate into a far more terrifying operation than Operation...

    Since elected to rule the Palestinians, the leaders of Hamas sound sometimes as though they are talking in different voices – depending on the place and occasion. While one appears to accept 1967 borders, another stands by the “right of refugees” (1948) to return” – another formula for Israel’s destruction, like the demand for a Palestinian state ranging from “the river to the sea.” The tactic is transparent: Hamas, a designated Islamic terror group whose politburo chief resides in Damascus hopes to disarm the more susceptible countries of the West by apparently confused signals to end its government’s isolation and...

Russian defense minister Sergei Ivanov predicted correctly that other states will follow suit and favor contacts with Hamas now that the Jerusalem campaign heavily dependent on Washington has gone up in smoke. As he spoke, France jumped aboard. What this means is - 1. After failing to prevent the election although it was clearly preconfigured for a Hamas victory, the Israeli caretaker government should have struck hard...

    A relatively junior intelligence officer has been mandated to establish why Israeli intelligence missed predicting the Islamist terrorist Hamas takeover of Palestinian government by the ballot. Does the remit given him by chief of staff Lt-Gen Dan Halutz and military intelligence director Maj-Gen Amos Yadlin give him enough scope to get to the bottom of a monumental lapse? Hardly. His task has been limited to an internal intelligence probe rather than a broad inquiry. Within this limit, there is no way he can truly explain how Israel came to find itself face to face with a strategic calamity on the...

Treasury officials refused to give details of the various accounts involved or what sums were involved. Mr Brown told...

Also, 60 prominent Palestinians urged their people yesterday not to retaliate for Israel’s killing of the Hamas founder, but instead to transform the 3 1/2-year-old violent uprising into a peaceful protest for statehood. A call for restraint came from a second direction yesterday — relatives of a Palestinian youth caught with a suicide bomber’s vest at an Israeli roadblock demanded...

    UNITED NATIONS -- The United States vetoed a U.N. Security Council resolution today condemning Israel's assassination of Hamas leader Ahmed Yassin. The veto came after Algeria, the resolution's sponsor, rejected a demand by the United States that the measure also condemn violence by Hamas and other militant groups, and that it identify them by name. The resolution "is silent about the terrorist atrocities committed by Hamas," U.S. Ambassador John Negroponte said before the vote. He called the measure "unbalanced, one-sided." "Israel's action has escalated tensions in Gaza and the region ... but events must be considered in their context," Negroponte...
