The head of the Shin Bet security service on Sunday warned that the Hamas terrorist group is poised to take over the West Bank from the very weak Mahmoud Abbas, who controls the ruling Palestinian Authority, according to a television report.
Nadav Argaman was quoted by Hadashot news as saying the ongoing reconciliation between the two groups was not going to succeed, even if it takes a little more time. [ ]
According to a statement put out by the Knesset committee, Argaman also told the committee members that the Gaza-based Hamas terrorist group does not appear to be interested in renewed military conflict with Israel, but is looking instead to carry out terror attacks in the West Bank.
This year, we broke up 148 local Hamas cells in the West Bank. This high number of cells shows the increase in efforts by the Hamas high command in the Gaza Strip and abroad, he said.
Hamas sees the West Bank as being the main front for terror, with the intent of upsetting the security stability there, but it is having trouble doing that, mostly because of Israels efforts to stop it, he said.
The Shin Bet chief said the terrorist group appears to be deepening its ties with Iran, as the Middle East generally divides between the Shiite faction led by Islamic Republic and the Sunni one led by Saudi Arabia.

They’ve been plotting for decades.
how many individuals are necessary to makeup a terrorist cell?
Oh that’ll be a real clam bake.
That would be a danger to Mideast Peace.
That would destabilize the region.
That would be a setback to peace negotiations.
Any other trite aphorisms?...............
Let it be, then
Show the world apologists who will control Jerusalem and Palestine
Let them choose sides
If there were no Arabs in the west bank, there could be no terror cells.
How long before the idea of ethnic cleansing seems logical?
(The Turks threw out the Greeks in the 1920s; the Soviets threw out Poles and Germans in 1945; the Arabs threw out Jews from North Africa and Egypt and Iraq; so it’s nothing new...)
Cut off the money
Look up Muslim in the dictionary and it says blood- thirsty Satanic terrorist murder gangs........ this is what abbas plo pa Fatah Isis alQaida Muslim Brotherhood Iran and Hamas -and Hezballah and dozens more Muslim murder gangs have done with the continuing help of USA and European nations. This Help must end. Now!
Abbas has been rejected by DJT, KSA, and Qatar. He has no access to any finances except perhaps the UN.
Hamas on the other hand is firmly in the Iranian camp. Any pending take over of the ‘west bank’ goes hand in glove with the Iranian troops now 5 km from the Israeli border on the Golan - in fact in the same spot that Syria launched its attack in 1967. Despite pledges to the contrary, the IDF and the politicians are doing nothing as Iran and its surrogates build up their forces in towns and areas Bebe and others pledged they would never permit.
KSA and Qatar have cut him off
It would be an interesting twist as Israel, with our blessings, was unleashed on them......
There has been a mass expulsion of over 600,000 Bengali Muslims from Burma this year, with nothing more than noise from the "world community". The Burmans finally got fed up with their Muslims.
I am against you, Gog, chief prince of[a] Meshek and Tubal. 2 I will turn you around and drag you along. I will bring you from the far north and send you against the mountains of Israel. 3 Then I will strike your bow from your left hand and make your arrows drop from your right hand. 4 On the mountains of Israel you will fall, you and all your troops and the nations with you. I will give you as food to all kinds of carrion birds and to the wild animals. 5 You will fall in the open field, for I have spoken, declares the Sovereign LORD. 6 I will send fire on Magog and on those who live in safety in the coast lands, and they will know that I am the LORD.”
Uh, sure ... OK ... whatever ...
When is it Not??
