    Palestinians in the Gaza Strip are relentlessly flying a variety of airborne arson and explosive devices into Israel, causing hundreds of fires, millions of shekels in damageFor over two months, Palestinians in the Gaza Strip have been flying kites, birthday balloons and inflated latex condoms into Israel, relying on the gentle Mediterranean coastal breeze to push them across the border. Silly as they may sound, these weapons are no joke. Most of them carry metal mesh pouches containing a burning piece of coal or oil-soaked rag, which have sparked hundreds of fires in southern Israel, destroying thousands of acres of...

Four thousand Palestinians gathered and burned tires in five locations along the Israel-Gaza border fence Friday afternoon, according to the IDF spokesperson's unit.

    An incendiary kite flown from Gaza sparked a major fire in an open field across from the Sapir College in the Sha’ar HaNegev Regional Council, near the southern city of Sderot on Tuesday afternoon. Heavy smoke covered the college building as firefighters were dispatched to the area and worked to prevent the fire from spreading to the nearby road and into the college. There were no reports of injuries. On Tuesday afternoon, fires broke out in seven other locations in the Gaza vicinity, four in the Eshkol Regional Council and three in Sha’ar Hanegev. Firefighters gained control of the fire...
  • WHY INTERNATIONAL FARHUD DAY STYMIES INVENTED PALESTINIAN HISTORY

    Remembering the movement to exterminate the Jews of the Middle East. When International Farhud Day was proclaimed at a conference convened at the United Nations headquarters on June 1, 2015, its proponents wanted to achieve more than merely establish a commemoration of the ghastly 1941 Arab-Nazi pogrom in Baghdad that killed and injured hundreds of Iraqi Jews. Farhud means violent dispossession. The Farhud but the first bloody step along the tormented path to the ultimate expulsion of some 850,000 Jews from across the Arab world. That systematic expulsion ended centuries of Jewish existence and stature in those lands.  Jews had thrived in Iraq for 2,700 years, a...

    Stay tuned for a special announcement about FBC's Future Plans at the end of John's Update. Not a single day passes by without the discerning Christian seeing the aftermath of a society that is coming "Unhitched and Unhinged" as they travel down a path that leads to their certain destruction. From the Irish cheering the ability to kill children in the womb up to 20 weeks of age, to the emergence of the Turkish President setting the stage for a move against Israel, to the false teachings and open hostility toward our Jewish friends exhibited by the "Christ at the...
  • FAKE NEWS: CNN Calls Palestinian Terrorists With Guns and Grenades 'Largely Unarmed'

    CNN appears to be on a mission to help Hamas destroy Israel. CNN has spent the past month actively assisting Hamas terrorists with media propaganda dissemination as the terrorists continue their attempt to overtake Israel. CNN headlines always point the finger at Israel as a culprit, and always shower Palestinian terrorists with white lies to bolster them. CNN stories are propagandizing art. A story about months of continuous attacks on Israeli border and infrastructure by terrorists and their recruits becomes a story of a nurse killed due to Israeli overreaction to what CNN described as “largely unarmed” “protests,” a regurgitation of Hamas...
  • US vetoes UN resolution denouncing violence against Palestinians

    06/02/2018 3:26:33 PM PDT · by BBell · 29 replies
    The United States vetoed on Friday a Kuwaiti-drafted UN Security Council resolution that condemned Israel's use of force against Palestinian civilians, underlining Washington's differences with friends and foes alike over the Israeli-Palestinian issue. Later, a second, US-drafted resolution that blamed Hamas for the violence and upheld Israel's right to defend itself failed to attract any other country's support when it was put to vote in the 15-member council. Blasting the council majority, US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said the two votes showed it was willing to blame Israel and unwilling to blame Hamas, the Islamist group that...

    The Palestinian Authority’s ruling Fatah faction called Israel “worse than Hitler,” according to a report by Palestinian Media Watch. According to Fatah Spokesman Osama Al-Qawasmi, Israel’s goal is to “break the dignity” of the Arab world, “crush” it, and “steal its resources.” Israel will turn to this task after it is “done with” the Palestinians. To reach these objectives, Israel is using the US as a tool. Al-Qawasmi claimed Israel “rules over the American decision-making and the American Congress” and controls everything the US is doing in the region. In another interview, Al-Qawasmi stated that Israel is worse than “Hitler,...

    Israel condemned PA efforts to have Israeli political and military officials prosecuted in the International Criminal Court in The Hague for “war crimes” against rioters on the Gaza border. The Foreign Ministry said that the PA appeal to The Hague was “a cynical move that is not legally valid. The PA continues to abuse the tribunal for political purposes rather than to promote political negotiations.” "It is ridiculous that the Palestinians do this while they continue to incite to terror and use children and women as human shields to cover their violent attempts to harm the security of Israeli citizens."...

    Palestinian Authority chief Mahmoud Abbas was rushed to a Ramallah hospital Sunday, after he complained of chest pains and a high fever. Abbas, 82, was hospitalized last week for a “minor surgery”, the PA’s mouthpiece WAFA reported last week. On Sunday, Abbas was rushed to a Ramallah hospital for treatment of “pneumonia and fever” a source close to the PA chief said, Yediot Ahronot reported. According to a source which spoke with AFP, the PA leader also suffered from chest pains. .....

    President Mahmoud Abbas was hospitalized with fever Sunday just days after undergoing surgery on his ear, an official said. The 83-year-old Abbas has endured a series of recent health scares which have revived anxiety over who will succeed him. A senior Abbas aide, speaking on condition of anonymity in line with protocol, said the Palestinian leader was diagnosed with a fever on Sunday. Abbas had an ear operation last week, and returned to the hospital late Saturday for a follow-up. Saed Sarahneh, of Istishari Arab hospital, said late Sunday that “all tests are normal and his condition is reassuring.” He...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 05/17/2018 | by Katelyn Caralle
    Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, charged on the Senate floor Thursday that the New York Times and other media outlets have been acting as a propaganda arm for Hamas by writing that Israeli troops were killing innocent Palestinians at a protest, and downplaying the fact that many were violent and threatening to kill Israelis. “We can count on global media elites acting as little more than propaganda arms, for Hamas and other terrorists, and no week has that been more evident than this week,” Cruz said. “The media has been more than happy to oblige Hamas’ propaganda needs. Reporters, celebrity talking...

    If this were the first time that Hamas deliberately provoked Israel into self-defense actions that resulted in the unintended deaths of Gaza civilians, the media could be excused for playing into the hands of Hamas. The most recent Hamas provocations — having 40,000 Gazans try to tear down the border fence and enter Israel with Molotov cocktails and other improvised weapons — are part of a repeated Hamas tactic that I have called the “dead baby strategy.” Hamas’ goal is to have Israel kill as many Gazans as possible so that the headlines always begin, and often end, with the...

    The seed that grew into Gaza’s Great Return March was planted Dec. 9, just a few days after President Trump announced he would recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Palestinians long have held onto the dream of Jerusalem as our own capital, or at least as a shared capital in a country that offers equal rights to everyone. --SNIP-- It was not a surprise that Israel responded to our march with deadly violence. But I had not expected this level of cruelty. On the other hand, I was heartened by the commitment to nonviolence among most of my own...

    An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) by Israeli drone maker Aeronautics Defense Systems Ltd. is being used by the Israeli military to dump skunk-water on protesters in Gaza, according to a video posted to Twitter by the Israeli Defense Ministry Wednesday. Tens of thousands of Palestinians had been protesting near Gaza’s perimeter fence since March as part of a campaign dubbed the “Great March of Return” which calls for the right of Palestinian refugees to return to their lands in Israel. The protests escalated earlier this week ahead of the inauguration of the American Embassy in Jerusalem. Israeli defense forces have...

    Hamas knowing they cannot defeat the IDF by military means, this has been Hamas’s long-term strategy:... to cause international outrage aimed at isolating Israel. Hamas has brought these tactics to a new and sickening low in recent weeks, making its 'human shields the actual weapons of war', with inevitably bloody consequences. This is the first government in history that has deliberately sought 'to compel its enemy to kill its own people'. I have visited IDF commanders and snipers at the border and observed their actions for myself. They have employed graduated measures, starting with warning Gaza civilians against approaching the...

    The New York Daily News is known for being a bit tabloidy and not exactly a bastion of hard hitting news, but their latest headline is just shameful. Who let this go to print? Good grief. pic.twitter.com/8DbOF2mgUh— Brit Hume (@brithume) May 15, 2018 The nasty headline leaves out that Hamas helped orchestrate Monday's violent protests. The rioters stormed the Gaza-Israeli border, despite being warned, with firebombs and other explosive devices, so IDF confronted them with force of their own. Over 50 individuals were killed and over 2,000 injured in the exchange. Reports reveal that 10 of those killed were members...

    Excuse Hamas. Condemn Trump. That, in a nutshell, was Morning Joe‘s approach to the deaths of Palestinians who rioted during the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem yesterday. First up were Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, painting the Trump family as callously indifferent to the deaths: JOE SCARBOROUGH: Mika, for the rest of the world you actually saw an administration, a White House, and we’ll say it, since Ivanka Trump was there. A family. Completely out of touch with the realities of the region that they’re dealing with. And you know, you had . . . 58 people killed...
