Operation Guardian of the Walls began by Israel after an increased Islamic incitement, as the Iran linked Jihadi terror groups Hamas controlling Gaza and (to a lesser capability Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) on May 10, 2021,[3] began bombarding Israeli civilians with rockets at the last Muslims' days of Ramadan.


Prior to the firing of rockets, a wave of Arabs attacking Jews inside Israel rose sharply, (mainly against pious Jews who mostly do not serve in the IDF) especially following incitement in Arab Palestinian mainstream since at least April 2. Ahead of Muslims' Ramadam.[4]


During the clashes between the IDF and Islamists in Gaza, (beginning on May 11), many Israeli Arabs also turned against their Jewish neighbors[5][6][7][8][9] often with Jihadi genocidal cries of "Itbakh al Yahud" and burning houses of worship. It was after a trend of racist random attacks by Arabs against Jews, randomly, which already preceded the bombardment by Hamas. On May 16, Fatah's Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades pushed to ramp it up even further.[10][11] Asides from physically attacking Jews, Muslim Rioters in Israel Burn 10 Synagogues, 112 Jewish Homes.[12] Local Islamic leaders incited.[13][14]

(Lack of proportionality.[15][16] Arab massive attacks [despite constituting only about 21% of the populatuon] with many in Arab leadership silent[17] and local Arab leaders egging on, were less reported by Israeli media as in less common retaliation[18] on an Arab, thought he was about to ram into Jews and it was sharply denounced even by right wingers. Overplayed in Israeli media.[19][20] Some have summed it as in a ratio of 94% to 1% reporting differences.[21]


Recap:


The chain of events indicates not only that the violence was a pre-planned Arab initiative; it was instigated despite a series of steps that the Israeli government took to calm things down, steps that had a heavy political and public cost.[22]


There's been an explosion[23] of Anti-Semitism, targeting Jews, in Europe,[24] in the US[25] and in Canada. Some adding their cry of "Allah u Akhbar."[26][27][28] Often under "free palestine" flag, excuse.[29] Initially, some media falsely described the sheer racist attacks.[30] The AJC attributed the sharp rise due to vitriol, extreme terminology used by anti-Israel politicians.[31]

Notable arrest was, Arab from Brooklyn. NY Waseem Awawdeh.[32][33] Waseem said, after being arrested, that he would do it again, to which a journalist Tweeted: Because he grew up brainwashed to hate a specific group of people.[34] Days later, another Arab from NY was arrested in that beating, Faisal Elezzi.[35]

On May 23, at the masses of anti-Israel protesters in London, some Muslims held hate-filled signs such as, viciously belittling the Holocaust, including: "surpasses Hitler".[36] In Chicago, on May 23, 2021, an Arab mob yelled "kill the J..s" in a rally.[37]


Background

Khaybar

  • In January, 2021 with the rise of violence within the Arab society in Israel (Israeli Arabs among themselves - violent crimes in this sector disproportionately high even earlier years,[38] it has only risen even higher in recent years.

[39][40][41][42][43] unlike in dealing with Israeli Jews, Israeli police is super ensitive not to handle the Arab sector harshly[44]), some among the Arabs chose to turn their anger at Jews and called for "Khaybar" (Islamic battle cry to murder Jews).[45][46]

Power: Iran, Hamas

  • Power: Iran, Hamas.

In late January/2021, Iran was seeking even in more desperation to strengthen alliance between the "axis of resistance," celebrated by Hezbollah. Yet, it was obvious the dilemma of Hamas, risk it takes in restoring full relationships with Syria, losing support among its people.[47]

Then came Hamas' frustration at the delay of the elections announced by rival Mahmoud Abbas. [48] Thus, Iran, Hamas were desperate for a fire and 'creating' again victimhood.

PA incitement

  • Between April 2 and April 10, 2021, the less radical Arab "Palestinian" authority, the PA, incited, especially the youths for violence.

As documented:[49]

In the days before the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, PA TV repeatedly broadcast a video inciting terror:

“I fired my shots, I threw my bomb. I detonated, detonated, detonated my [explosive] belts…   My brother, throw my blood on the enemy like bullets”

The video was broadcast 20 times between April 2 and April 10

The broadcast of songs promoting hate and violence immediately after animated children's shows should not be seen as a coincidence, but rather as part of the PA's indoctrination of children

Violence has once again flared up in Jerusalem. The outburst of violence was not spontaneous. It was not a response to any Israeli action. Rather it came on the heels of intensive and focused Palestinian Authority incitement to violence and terror.

The Muslim month of Ramadan started on the evening of April 12.

In the days before Ramadan, from April 2 through April 10, official PA TV broadcast a terror-promoting song and accompanying visuals of violence at least 20 times. Focusing on influencing the youth, PA TV also broadcast the song during the 4:00-5:00 p.m. time slot for children's programming.

As noted:[50]

...the uptick in violence since the start of the Muslim month of Ramadan in mid-April didn’t simply emerge out of nowhere. Ditto for the so-called “TikTok intifada” – the latest Palestinian fad of beating up Orthodox Jews and sharing videos of the physical aggression on the popular platform.

PA television was full of speeches and music videos promising glory for those who killed Jews.[51]


Pure racist attacks

  • In April 2021, at least since the 15th[52] at Muslims' Ramadan days,[53][54] a wide trend among Israeli racist[55] Arabs attacking Jews and bragging about it on social media intensified.[56][57] The clips increased incitement in the Arab sector[58] "The embodiment of antisemitic racism."[59] The trend was also blamed on Israeli Arab politicians, Knesset members' decades of instigating, while "these young Arabs .. live a life of abundance in one of the most comfortable countries in the Middle East."[60] The victims were almost all ultra orthodox, pious, haredim who by in large do not serve in Israeli army.[61] Police were warned violent riots will erupt afterwards.[62] In April-17, it was promoted by a channel identified with the "Palestinian" Islamic Jihad.[63] The clips by the racist attackers generated many "likes" by Muslim bigots.[64] Some then carried out lynching towards the end of April.[65] At least 53 Arabs were arrested. The wide racist trend was largely ignored[66] by anti-Jewish Haaretz.(Not merely anti-Israel[67] who is also apologetic for Arab rerror and has a twisted narrative in racism.[68]).

Fatwa

  • On April 10, 2021, on the heels of Jews purchasing houses in Silwan area, Muslims in Jerusalem, through its former Mufti, Sheikh Akrama Tsabari, (with a history of anti-Semitic incitement), issued "holy" order [Fatwa] which forbade Muslims from selling houses to Jews.[69] Already by next day, "An Arab tries to murder his Jewish neighbors with an ax, today in the Muslim Quarter."[70]


Property dispute, the excuse

  • Towards end of April, dispute between Jewish owners of houses in Sheikh Jarrah and a few Arab families, who never had the titles to the properties,[71][72] refusing to evacuate was used by inciters to push for violence.[73][74] Arabs called for racist ethnic cleansing there from Jews.[75] On May 5, Hamas icon, Mohammed Deif "warned" Israel.[76] Indeed, it intensified, on Nay 6.[77][78]

  Arab-Palestinian long-time human rights activist:[79]

This dispute is not actually about four houses in East Jerusalem. This is about Hamas seeing a chance to seize the narrative and increase its own influence and control over Palestinians in Jerusalem. Don’t buy their fake news and let them dilute their own blame. In the coming days, Jews and Muslims are both likely to die because Hamas saw political upside in violence. Don’t forget it.

Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood's Arab activist's role model is Dalal Mughrabi - terrorist murderer at most lethal terror attack in Israel’s history, known as the Coastal Road massacre, in 1978. She and other Fatah terrorists hijacked a bus on Israel's Coastal Highway and murdered 37 of the civilian passengers, 12 of them children, while wounding over 70. The Fatah issued her a congratulatory message: "May you live as a rebel defending our Jerusalem, like your role model Dalal Mughrabi."[80]



Masses at al-Aqsa and security

  • At the same time, fearing violence in Al Aqsa Mosque (Temple Mount are), Israel restricted quota of massive Muslim prayers, (usually by limiting youngsters), and this restriction was used for violence against Israeli police.[81] Local Islamist influencers hyped incitement.[13] April–May: Agitated also by Hamas and even Jordan and "moderate" Fatah, "Demonstrators called for 'blood and fire to defend al Aqsa' and for Iran to 'bomb Tel Aviv,' but they voiced no slogans about the establishment of a Palestinian state or Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine." [82] The powerful libel of 'Al-Aqsa in danger' since the time of Haj Amin al-Husseini (whose propaganda in the 1920s included disseminating fake made up photomontage of a Zionist flag supposedly flying over it[83]), has been revived.[84] Prominent Arab politician, Knesset member Ayman Odeh expressed hope the violence spreads to a full Intifadah.[85] In the midst of the Arab riots, Ayman Odeh even interviewed with a Hezbollah supporter channel and has justified the Arab riots.[86] Another prominent Arab politician, Knesset member Mansour Abbas of the United Arab List, who, unlike major icons in Arab society did condemn the violence, however days after the ceasefire, he's attended a tent by radical 'Northern branch of Islamic Movement,' set up for Sheikh Kamal Chatib who encouraged martyrdom at al Aqsa mosque.[87]

Arson terror

Berween May 6-9, 2021, Hamas sent out a wave of incendiary balloons causing some 39 fires.[88][89]

Hamas targets Israeli civilians using own civilians to create victims and media plays along

  • Islamic Republic of Iran's linked,[90]

'under the supervision of Iranian experts,'[91] Gaza's government, Jihadi Hamas (and the PIJ) began firing rockets, quickly stepping it up to many rockets in a short period of time over populated areas, causing many to penetrate despite the iron dome defense, [92] within days it fired thousands,[93] about 3,000 in less than the first week alone[94] within an average of around 400-500 fired a day,[95] aimed at Israeli civilians,[96][97][98][99][100] typically using its own population as human shields,[101][102][103][104][105][106][107][108][109][110][111] (and even killing civilians from its population in the process,[112] 1 in 7 rockets that Hamas fires lands in Gaza,[113]) VS humane Israeli army[114] who "moves Gazan civilians out of the way of attacks on Hamas."[115] risking skipping terror target for fear of children being there,[116]

As Arab-Palestinian long time human rights activist (previously working at Betselem, before it became a total anti-Israel unreliable source of sheer propaganda) asserted:[117]

“The main difference between Israel and Hamas: Israel is using missiles to protect its people while Hamas is using its people to protect its rockets,” Eid told The Algemeiner. “Hamas does not care where these missiles land.”

Eid estimates based on his own Palestinian sources in the Gaza Strip that more than 50 Palestinians died because of errant rockets by the Hamas that were targeted towards Israel but which landed in Gaza. According to the Israeli army, about 4,340 rockets were fired by Hamas toward Israel during the 11 days of hostilities, with 640 of them falling within Gaza.

Even biased NPR in its anti-Israel reporting piece cited the fact: ...In Gaza City, fully intact buildings stood right next to where others had been flattened. One building looked like a layer cake, with one story stacked on top of the other.[118] Which proves the humane nature routine and nethods, precision. Israeli Security Agency warn Arab-Palestinian farmer from being in a dangerous area of the Gaza-Israel border is an example.[119][120]

Biased anti-Israel UNRWA chief in gaza[121] was forced by Hamas to flee after asserting confirming IDF was highly precise (in targeting only terrorists).[122]



As in a nutshell, the classic example described the conflict:

The IDF, attempting to warn about an impending strike, pleading for the Arab man in Gaza to evacuate the building before the bombing because civilians are present. This is the conversation that took place:

- "I can’t get all of the people out I need at least two hours to get them out," the Palestinian says. 

- "Listen, we are going to bomb the building," the member of the IDF replies. 

- "You want to bomb? Bomb whatever you want," the man responds. 

- "No, brother, we need to do everything we can so you don’t die,” the IDF member says.

- "We want to die," the Palestinian answers. 

- "But you have a responsibility for children’s lives," the Israeli pushes back. 

- "If the children need to die then they’ll die," the Palestinian counters. 

- "God forbid, God forbid, what do you want, to die?!" the soldier asks. 

- "This is how we reveal your cruelty," the man responds. [123][124][125] [126][127]

The Iranian hands. Days before the barrage of rockets, on May 6, IRGC General Asghar Emami said that "Iran Does Not Need To Send Missiles Or Planes To Attack Israel, Through The Resistance Axis, We Can Plough Israeli Cities With Mortars; When We Want American Concessions, We Can Tighten Our Grip Around Israel's Throat."[128]

Arab anti-Jewish attacks inside Israel

  • While the afromentioned jihadists pounded Israeli civilians, at the same time, inside Israel, all over,[129] openly racist in nature,[130][131] especially where there is an Arab population, there were anti-Jewish vicious attacks, with Jihadi sentiments cries.[132][133] Including on at least 5 houses of worship[134] which shows Arab Islamic sheer hatred. In Lod for example, masses of Arabs ("hundreds of Arabs, adults, women, no mob and not a few children, they came and just looked for blood"[135]) attacked their Jewish neighbors, shouting "Itbach al Yahud" (death to J...).[136][137] In some Arab towns there were Islamic calls to murder Jews.[138] From the brutality, in another city, Arab beat the skull of young man with knives.[139] While Israeli police handled Arabs with 'kid gloves'.[140] (Israeli Arabs are not burning synagogues, schools, yeshivot, Jewish-owned stores, cars and homes because of the so-called "occupation." They are not lynching Jews that fall in their paths because of the so-called "settlements." [141]) All the while, media, even much inside Israel white washed Arab raw racist violence. Part of a wider trend of preferential treatment prevalent in Israel towards Arabs over Jews.[142]

Online genocidal hate by Arabs in Israel also increased.[143][144]


Yusuf Naim, a nurse at Hadassah Hospital, posted a picture of a swastika next to the caption "Nazi Palestinian" on his Instagram account.[145]

In Jaffa, Arabs lobbed incendiary device at a family they thought it was Jewish. Injuring Arab Child and slightly injuring his sister.[146] Even after it was found out and publicized that Arabs perpetrated it, still hateful Arab politician in Israel pushed for fake news as if it was done by Jews.[147] First fatality of Arab lynching was Yigal Yehoshua.[148][149] ("clashes" myth: While there was overplaying in lefty media in Israel over an isolated reprisal coming only later on and against someone they thought to be ramming into Jews, it has downplayed the initiators Arab minority on Jewish majority polulation and its wide phenomenon. [150]) While only Jews' houses of worship were attacked by Arab-Muslims and no Muslim mosque was attacked, an Arab penalist in Israeli media, tried to claim some "balance." He attempted to dangerously instigate by lying, inventing, creating fake news. [151]

On the sweeping intolerance dominant at Arab minority in democratic Israel: The entire Arab leadership Lod, such as all the clergy of the Great Mosque, sided with the terrorist cell when they were released from prison.[14] Among the arrested in June was the Imam at largest mosque in Lod.[152][153][154]

Noted academic gave the analysis:[155]

This time, the Jewish public will learn the lessons of the violent rampage, the manifestations of hostility and the assassination ethos that go with it among tens of thousands of Israeli Arabs, in dozens of cities throughout the country. The severity of the phenomenon focuses on the overwhelming majority refraining from curbing the hostile and violent elements, and fearing to disassociate themselves from the message they are sending to the Jews. Dozens of their spokespeople, from Knesset members to journalists and participants in the riots, who spoke to the Jewish public, flat out lied, made poor excuses and did not accept responsibility, with a particularly repulsive combination of aggression and whining. Many of them were not even willing to settle for the deliberately false and distorted symmetry that the journalists offered them, regarding "the extremists on both sides". Such a determination would be plausible had Arab society and its spokespeople revolted against the many thousands of rioters and haters amongst them, similar to the absolute renunciation of the vast majority of the Jewish public and almost all its spokespeople from the handful of vandals on the margins of society...

It is a mistake to focus on the Arab rioters who raged in Lod, Ramla and Acre, attacked their Jewish neighbors, burned and looted their property and endangered lives. Much worse are the hundreds of serious incidents all over the country, some of them substantial, where riled up young Arabs chanted, among other things, "Khyber, Khyber Ya-Yehud, Jaish Muhammad Sawf Ya'ud" ("Khaybar, Khaybar o Jews, the army of Muhammad will return"). During these protests, they actually laid siege to Arad, threatened Jews in dozens of centers in the Galilee and the Negev and tried to lynch an IDF soldier in Jaffa. These are blatant manifestations of joining the enemy during war. This is terrorism in the original sense of the term: imposing fear on tens of thousands of Jews, who fear for their lives, well-being and property.

Worth mentioning, the Arab violent attacker on a Jew in Jaffa in April showed on Facebook he's admiring Hitler.[156]

As an embodiment, an Arab, Yusuf Naim, a nurse at Hadassah Hospital, posted a picture of a swastika next to the caption "Nazi Palestinian" on his Instagram account.[157][158][159][160][161]

The other Iranian hand: Hezbollah

Anti-Semitism under cloak of "pro-Palestinian"

  • Arab-Islamic "free-palestine" and such posters push for sharp rise in anti-Semitism on line with fake news, warped comparisons, vile twisted descriptions, and cartoons. As a result, Jews were attacked in Europe,[164] in Toronto,[165] houses of worship in Germany[166] (which in recent years is home to a large Arab-Muslim immigrant population), among other parts.

Reaction

The US,[167] the EU,[168] the UK,[169] and the United Arab Emirates[170] condemned Hamas firing of rockets. Austria[171] and Slovenia[172] put up Israeli flags in show of support.[173] In the Czech Republic Prague landmark lit up in the colors of the Israeli flag in show of support for Israel.[174] On May 20, Czech, Slovak and German foreign ministers landed in Israel in show of solidarity.[175] In the Italian Parliament, Israeli flags were displayed, and some representatives are seen clapping.[176]


Areas with large Arab-Muslim population saw demonstrations against Israel.[177] Including in downtown Brooklyn, NY; San Francisco, Dallas; among Arab masses in France, London, among Arab immigrants in Germany. Anti-Israel Protests has spread Antisemitism especially in Europe[178] and has spread attacks on media.[179] In London, mobs of radical Islamists walking the streets of London looking for Jews to attack,[180] Muslims chanted "Khayber Khaybar oh Jews, Mohammad’s army is returning".[181] A group in a convoy of 5 vehicles, called to rape Jewish women.[182] In Vienna, [on May 15, 2021] students organized a demonstration against Anti-Semitism, some Muslims tried to interrupt it several times and belittled the Holocaust.[183]

Nazi flag at a pro-Palestinian demonstration.[184]

In some places, Muslim demonstrators put up both symbols: the swastika & "Palestine" flag.


On May 17, in Los Angeles, Muslims in two vehicles, waving "palestinian" flag, shouting "Allahu Akbar" chased a religious Jewish man.[185]


On May 18, Arabs, attending a "pro-Palestine" rally in Los Angeles, stormed a restaurant, asked who is Jewish and began beating. [186]

Notable arrest was, Arab from Brooklyn. NY Waseem Awawdeh.[187][188] Waseem said, after being arrested, that he would do it again, to which Newsmax's Logan Ratick Tweeted: Because he grew up brainwashed to hate a specific group of people.[189] Days later, another Arab from NY was arrested in thst beating, Faisal Elezzi.[190]


There were major demonstration of support for Israel in: USA, Canada and the Czech Republic.[191] Rallies were held across the US in show of support of Israel by Jews and pro Israel Americans in: New York at Times Square, in Boston, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Denver, Las Vegas, Seattle; Cleveland; Austin; Houston; Orlando, Fla.; the cities of Walnut Creek and Irvine in California; Scottsdale, Ariz.[192] Evangelical Christians stood up for Israel and called on Biden to do the same.[193]

Democrats, Nancy Pelosi[194] condemned Hamas, but the GOP urged more forceful defense of embattled Israel.[195] Mike Pence slammed Biden for 'weakness' in handling the conflict.[196] Mitch McConnell rejected calls for a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, saying, "we're already seeing some push the false narrative that this conflict is a tragic dispute between two legitimate combatants, where both sides share blame that is roughly equal. What nonsense."[197] Some pointed out that the UAE was even more anti Hamas, for Israel than the Biden Administration.[198]


Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, both Muslims with a record of anti-Jewish bigotry, both using real progressives for this intolerance "holy" cause, were very dramatic. To the pair, AOC helped in arguing there is no balance in power, ignoring reality of course, the powerful "Palestinian" side which uses its own civilians (a long bloody history since at least 1982, Anti-Israel Terrorists' ["Palestinian" or Hezbollah] Routine Use of its Own Population as Human Shields.[199][200][201] and even by Hamas' own admission earlier[202]) to shoot at Israeli civilians[203][204][205][206] which its army is the only side that is careful about civilians.

Despite a pair of pro-Terror radical "activists" [one a former al-Jazeera guy, caught lying already before,[207] another one (Neve Gordon) hugging Arafat in the Middle of 2002 Intifadah butchery and chastising, punishing his students for daring to challenge him on his distortion[208]] "book" promoted by two known hateful over-a-decade-propagandists[209] on wiki. Yet, facts are facts.

One might imagine, what would have happened, if Israel would, even for one day, albeit not go as far as to behave like its Arab Palestinian or Hezbollah side that actively aim at civilians while using its own, but with its mighty weapons just haden't gone to great length ['roof knocking',[210] developing precision 'Iron Sting' for precision preventing collateral damage[211] various nethods[212][213]] to minimize civilians from adversary territories.

As T. Marshall concludes:[214]

Israel feels it has no choice but to try and smash the military infrastructure in Gaza. It also knows there will be civilian casualties despite them usually giving advance warning to people about which buildings they will hit. A proportion of the civilian casualties on the Palestinian side will be killed by the roughly 20 per cent of Hamas/PIJ missiles which fall within Gaza or blow up upon launch.

Yet that is unlikely to be widely propagated in the Arab world. Iran and Hamas are prepared to sacrifice another generation of Palestinians to the overwhelming firepower of the Israelis in order to win the propaganda battle, and eventually the war.

Though AOC showed absolutely ignorance vis-a-vis the Middle East when she uttered the word "occupation"[215] and admitted she isn't knowledgeable, yet she was quick to pick up the A slur,[216] originally invented by genocidal[217][218] Jihadi[219] Ahmad Shukeiri[220] (who in 1940 cheered, prayed for,[221][222] then helped Hitler since 1941,[223][224][225][226][227] justified the Holocaust in 1946,[228] and promoted neo Nazi storm trooper gang[229][230][231] who guarded Adolf Eichmann[232] and has tortured a 19 years old girl, carved a swastika on her, as a revenge for killing Eichmann[233]) He did it in October, 1961 in the context of him protesting the Eichmann trial,[234] some 6 years before[235] the so-called "occupation" in 1967. An Israeli Arab replied to her on the falsehood of applying the term vs reality of Arabs in democratic Israel with full equal rights.[236]

(The A slur, and other like it, "Slur-du-jur"[237] the vicious slandering via incorrectness,[238] a demonization[239] terminology exclusively. [VS real apartheid Arab—Islamic Middle East.[240]]. Besides being hyperbolic with total inaccuracy [let alone the outrageous pretention as if one doesn't understand legitimate security concerns by this embattled state], and though it has been already used before, [including Omar Shakir,[241][242] an Arab-Muslim activist against Israel since he was a student[243] in 2010 Shakir's advocating for label apartheid while admitting it's tough, it's not the same as South Africa, such as voting rights for Arabs having rights, but that the strategy is effective, good to stand up to defenders of Israel...,[244] deported from Israel for his bigoted BDS activities,[245] then abusing the HRW platform.[246] As mentioned, the label was invented already in 1961 by that Arab-Nazi, and ever since the defamors attempted "updates" to "adjust" its misrepresentation as so to fit the pre determined buzzword]. still, it is actually even more harmful in repeating, promoting it. Mighty dangerous in an obsessive legitimization campaign focused on one certain State, especially given the unparalleled history prior its establishment in its historic place. No wonder it's used by virtually all openly promoters of [true, not the exaggerated] genocide).


J. Robbins exposed Hamas cruel game and radical left helping them, quoting Hamas spokesman as expressing the mentality behind the suffering in Gaza in a nutshell. "The decision to bomb Tel Aviv, Dimona and Jerusalem," boasting about the 3,000 rockets it has already fired at Israeli communities in recent days alone, "is easier for us than drinking water." [247]

You bet it is. As in the past, the calculation by Hamas, deemed a terrorist enterprise by the European Union, the United States and others, to use Palestinian civilians as human shields from which to attempt the murder of Israeli civilians, isn't just easy. It is a no-brainer.

Here is what Hamas knows: It will fire missiles at innocent Israelis, using innocent Palestinians in homes, hospitals and schools as collateral damage-in-waiting. No Israeli government can permit its civilians to be used as lambs to be slaughtered. The only way for it to stop the rockets is to stop those who fire them. Israel will try to minimize the harm to Gazans, even those whom Hamas is happy to sacrifice. Innocent Palestinians whom Hamas has effectively designated for death will die.

And that isn't all Hamas knows. It knows that the cycle of inanity on the left will be replayed again, with those holding themselves out as progressives blaming not Hamas for firing the rockets, but Israel for trying to protect itself from them....

One supposes that neither Pressley nor Ocasio-Cortez has had their families forced into underground shelters, while missiles aimed at annihilating them landed all around. The painful appearance is that neither congresswoman “sees” Israelis. Both seem to regard Israelis as somehow not quite human. Israeli life evidently holds little value or interest for Pressley, Ocasio-Cortez and certain of their colleagues.

“We cannot stand idly and complicitly by and allow the occupation and oppression of the Palestinian people to continue,” said Pressley, opting for a platitude both sophomoric and inapposite. The idea that Hamas, which has consigned Palestinians to needless suffering since it seized control of the Gaza Strip in a 2007 coup, acts out of concern for Palestinians’ welfare is risible. No one need take Israel's word for it; ask Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, Hamas’ sworn enemy. Thumbing its nose at the opportunity to help construct a Palestinian state, Hamas has effectively enslaved Gazans in service of its own fanaticism. It is an organization that progressives should not indulge, let alone embrace.

Just as the congresswomen have no particular interest in standing in Israelis’ shoes, so too are they disinterested in material facts. Were it otherwise, they would know that over the past two decades Israel has repeatedly agreed to an independent Palestinian state encompassing the West Bank and Gaza, in return simply for peace. Each time the offer was made, Palestinian leadership rejected it. Whether Pressley has the vaguest idea of this when she whitewashes the targeting of Israeli civilians by invoking “the occupation and oppression of the Palestinian people,” one can only guess.

Adding, that everyone has flaws, yet
the left's devil-may-care attitude toward the use of innocent Palestinians as human shields to terrorize innocent Israelis isn’t merely foolish. It badly hurts those on both sides of the conflict.



Among celebrities, it was mostly the usual suspects who criticized Israel, with a few celebs taking a more nuanced view. [248]

Comedian John Oliver (asides from using the fake buzzwords, showing clearly, it's out of spite), his basic line was that asymmetrical deaths. Which is as stupid as one can be. In other words, the fact that Israel was successful in defending its citizents. Not to mention which side is seeking deaths, of both sides.

In response, another comedian, Lior Schleien, asked him how many Israelis would satisfy him.... that’s the point. The terminology. And the symmetry. Israelis don’t die enough. We keep trying. How many Israeli casualties will satisfy you? A child, do you count it as less than one? [249]


Another comedian, Tom Aharon went after the specifics of Oliver’s arguments, including one about the imbalance of military power between Israel and the Palestinians. “Does being stronger bear certain responsibilities? Sure. But does it automatically mean you’re at fault? Of course not. It almost sounds like you’re mad at us for not taking more casualties,” he says. “Claiming that imbalance is immoral is the privilege of those who don’t need to make the choice between their own safety and their care for others.”[250]


Boteach exposed the Hadid (Dua Lipa, of Muslim origin, dating Anwar Hadid brother of sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid, daughters of Arab "Palestinian" billionaire, Mohamed Hadid) family's hate campaign:[251]

Take the example of Mohamed Hadid, the multi-millionaire father of supermodels Bella and Gigi Hadid, all of whom are vilifying Israel with gusto to their tens of millions of followers on Instagram.

Instead, the blood libel is spreading.

His daughters, Bella and Gigi, joined by the singer Dua Lipa – who is purportedly dating their brother – have become an unholy trinity of Hamas terror-splaining

It-girls engaged in the outright demonization of Israel and the Jewish people.

Speaking to their nearly hundred million followers on social media, they have vilified the Jewish state with an all-consuming hatred.

They accused Israel – a nation built in large part by Holocaust survivors – of ethnic cleansing, even as millions of Jews in Israel descend from refugees savagely forced out of every Arab land. They condemn Israel for the military checkpoints that were erected only after 700 innocent Israeli Jews and Arabs were blown to bits by suicide bombers on buses and cafés, many of them sent by Hamas. They call Israel an apartheid state, even as it is the only country in world history to airlift Africans into freedom and sets the standard for multi-racial and multi-cultural coexistence, with millions of Christians, Muslims and Jews - black and white – living side by side as doctors, teachers and soldiers.

Theirs is a malicious ignorance. If Bella, Gigi and Dua cared about Palestinians, they’d condemn Hamas, a bloodthirsty death cult whose brutality toward women and tolerance for honor killings of young Palestinian girls is an abomination. They’d demand that Hamas stop its use of Palestinian children as human shields for military stockpiles and rocket launch pads, cease its regular murders of LGBT Palestinians, and reverse its denial of the Palestinian people’s right to elections, after fourteen autocratic years. But those demands don’t fit into a campaign that’s solely about hating and defaming Jews.

Worst of all, in defending the Hamas terrorists, Bella, Gigi and Dua make themselves apologists for the genocidal aspirations of Hamas, whose charter calls for the murder of Jews “wherever they are found.” Hamas seeks nothing less than a second holocaust: 3,500 shrapnel-packed rockets should be more than enough to prove they mean it.


'Memes have replaced morality': former NYT columnist Bari Weiss railed against AOC, the Hadid sisters and Dua Lipa after they all 'attacked Israel' for defending itself against a 'genocidal terrorist organization'.[252]


Bill Maher called out the hypocrisy of Instagram celebs like Bella Hadid, “Bella Hadid and her friends would run screaming to Tel Aviv if they had to live in Gaza for one day.”[253]

Reporters:[254]

...Hadid, whose dad is Palestinian, is among the most vocal pro-Palestinian voices ...Israel has accused the supermodel of anti-Semitism. 

Bill Maher got into a fiery debate over the recent Israel-Gaza conflict on Friday night and took aim at the 'liberal media' over its news coverage before turning on progressives including supermodel Bella Hadid.

'One of the frustrations I had while I was off is that I was watching this war go on in Israel … and it was frustrating to me because there was no one on liberal media to defend Israel, really,' Maher, 65, began. He was referring to a recent COVID-19 diagnosis that forced him off the air last week. 

'We've become this country now that we're kind of one-sided on this issue. And I'd also like to say off the bat I don't think kids understand, and when I say kids I mean the younger generations – you can't learn history from Instagram!' the 65-year-old Maher added. 'There's just not enough space.' Bill Maher got into a fiery debate over the recent Israel-Gaza conflict on Friday night and took aim at the 'liberal media' over its news coverage before turning on progressives... as New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof suggested Israel had committed 'possible war crimes' against Gaza. 

'Well, Gaza fired 4,000 rockets into Israel. What would you say Israel should have done instead of what they did?' Maher asked.

'International lawyers are pretty clear that they have a right to defend themselves … but there is a sense that their response was probably a war crime because they did not sufficiently avoid civilian casualties,' Kristof explained.

'But they purposely put the rockets in civilian places. That's their strategy,' Maher responded.

Maher then went into a detailed explanation that countered a oft-repeated narrative that Israel 'stole' the land... 

'The Jews have been in that area of the world since about 1200 B.C., way before the first Muslim or Arab walked the Earth. ... I mean, Jerusalem was their capital. So if it's who got there first, it's not even close,' Maher said. 

'The Jews were the ones who were occupied by everybody; the Romans took over at some point and then the Persians and the Byzantines and then the Ottomans. So yes, there was colonization going on there. Beginning in the 19th century, they started to return to Palestine, which was never an Arab country. There was never a country called Palestine that was a distinct Arab country. 

'Doesn't it behoove the people who rejected the half a loaf and continue to attack … Hamas's charter says they just want to wipe out Israel. Their negotiation position is 'You all die, Maher said. 'The two-state solution has been on the table a number of times. There could be an Arab capital in East Jerusalem now if Yasser Arafat had accepted that in 2003. He did not...

The State of Israel's official Twitter account said Hadid was advocating for sending 'Jews into the sea'...

'I mean, they have rejected this and went to war time and time again,' Mayer continued, 'And, you know, as far as Gaza goes, it's amazing to me that the progressives think that they're being progressive by taking that side of it, the Bella Hadids of the world, these influencers. 

'I just want to say in February of this year, a Hamas court ruled that a unmarried woman cannot travel in Gaza without the permission of a male guardian. Really? That's where the progressives are? Bella Hadid and her friends would run screaming to Tel Aviv if they had to live in Gaza for one day.' 

Kristof once attempted to defend Hadid's position and said that he didn't 'perceive' her as defending Hamas but for Gazan children who were killed during the fighting.

But Maher referred the columnist to that slogan Hadid chanted while taking part in a pro-Palestine march in New York City earlier this month. 

'From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.'  The phrase is normally associated with the wiping out of Israel.   

Earlier in the week, Bella Hadid attended the same pro-Palestinian protest as the man arrested for allegedly beating a bystander in Times Square last week and calling him a 'filthy Jew' - and posted a picture of him on her Instagram....

In her post including a picture of Awawdeh .. Hadid wrote: 'The way my heart feels … To be around this many beautiful, smart, respectful, loving, kind and generous Palestinians all in one place... it feels whole! We are a rare breed!!'

Police say Awawdeh was among a gang of demonstrators who four days later punched a Jewish man to the pavement then pummeled him while he was down, yelling anti-Semitic epithets.

He is charged with assault as a hate crime, gang assault, menacing, aggravated harassment as a hate crime and criminal possession of a weapon. 


A famous Pakistani Muslim, (who 5 years earlier declared she's "devoting herself to Islam,"[255]) movie star, Veena Malik tweeted Hitler quote about killing Jews.[256]


Naftali Bennett responded[257] to Oliver, Trevor Noah and Bella Hadid (daughter of Arab "Palestinian" Billionaire Mohammad Hadid, who also insinuated about throwing Jews into the sea).[258]

... Israel just wants to live in peace with its neighbors, "but what we won't do is commit suicide so you can make your snarky comedy bits."

.... Many of these criticisms stemmed from the idea that there is a significant disparity in casualties, with Hamas suffering far more casualties than Israel, due in part to the Iron Dome defense system. 

But Bennett sought to set the record straight for who he sarcastically called "The 'great philosophers' of our age."

Bennett... gave numerous examples of important Gazan facilities such as Shifa hospital and the Ayyobiya Boys School, both of which are also Hamas facilities that are used to help plan attacks on Israel or store weapons.

.... the example of the al-Jalaa building, where several media outlets like Al Jazeera and the Associated Press had offices. ...also housed a Hamas military ...

"So Bella, John and Noah, help me out here," he said. "If a terror organization like Hamas called to murder your families and launched thousands of missiles at your children while they're hiding inside hospitals, schools and media offices, what would you do?"

... two options. Do nothing and die, or respond.

"I don't know about you all, but we're gonna go with number two," Bennett explained.

... If celebrities like Noah, Oliver and Hadid want to help end this war, then they should be using their platforms to demand Hamas stop hiding behind innocent civilians, he said.

"Maybe you should ask Hamas operator, Fathi Hamad, to stop bragging that 'Palestinian women and children make the best human shields," .... On May 16, the Israel Twitter account responded to Hadid, who along with her sister Gigi Hadid had shared multiple pro-Palestinian messages on social media, many of which were controversial.

"When celebrities like @BellaHadid advocate for throwing Jews into the sea, they are advocating for the elimination of the Jewish State," the Israel Twitter account wrote.

"This shouldn't be an Israeli-Palestinian issue. This should be a human issue. Shame on you."... Responding to Oliver, Renana, a 10-year-old girl from Kfar Azza, a Gaza border community where rocket sirens have been ringing day and night for the past week and a half, recorded a video ...

"Every siren makes me cry and feel sad," Renana said, speaking well beyond her years. "Just so you know, my army is strong. However, this does not protect me from being afraid."


Journalist decried[259] the Hadid sisters' contribution to the increase in Anti Semitic attacks. Who "have three times more followers than the total Jewish population in the world as of 2021," and that "when they spread their Fake News and increase antisemitism in the world - for some reason, everyone is silent. And if you were wondering what about the Palestinians - you just proved that this is not the conflict that interests you, because what is the connection between it - and beatings that a Jew gets in New York." She said.

...these two supermodels blatantly circulated antisemitic posts, falsely portraying the Jews of Israel as white supremacists and colonialists, through fake news, blatant lies, infographics based on unreliable sources and a variety of techniques. With the goal to express support for the Palestinians, according to them. They removed the posts later, either because of outside criticism or out of an understanding that what underpinned the posts they shared with many millions around the world, is of course pure anti-Semitism. But in simple terms: both have three times more followers than the total world Jewish population, after Hitler - that one, of those posts "Hit... was right" - succeeded in exterminating more than a third of the Jewish population in the Holocaust. This is after my family members have been attacked only because of their identity.


Andrew Yang backtracked his staunch supporting tweet for Israel, after Muslim and hard left backlash against him and later said he cares about Palestinians while also supporting the State of Israel.[260]

Author traces the process by which material pressures and intellectual fashions reshaped world opinion of Israel. Initially, terrorism, oil blackmail, and the sheer size of Arab and Muslim populations gave the world powerful inducements to back the Arab cause. Then, a prevalent new paradigm of Leftist orthodoxy, in which class struggle was supplanted by the noble struggles of people of color, created a lexicon of rationales for taking sides against Israel. Thus, nations can behave cravenly while striking a high-minded pose in aligning themselves on the Middle East conflict.[261]


The BLM first kept quiet, then on May 17, 2021, tweeted support for the Hamas terror side, wrapping it in a supposed struggle against so-called "colonialism."[262]


Most of the mainstream media is already biased against Israel[263][264][265] (at least since 1970 by the BBC.[266] Then in French media in the early 1970s. [267]). By this specific situation it's even more illogical how the victim is portrayed as the aggressor.[268]


Rarely do most media show images of Israeli women and children wounded, yet constantly bombard its most graphic images from the other side. Knowing fully well the responsibility of those that seek this outcome for this very reason. As terrorists see it [firing from residential places, schools, mosques, etc.] as a win win situation. If they save themselves and their equipment, they can keep it on. If many civilians on its side die,[269] Israel's image is even more in shambles and blooded photos are powerful in its sympathy and even recruitment.


Even supposed less openly biased anchors/journalists repeat an inaccurate line such as "Hamas responded with rockets." Forgetting the simple fact, it was Hamas who actually began the shelling. Like usual.


Bennett replied to MSNBC's Ayman Mohyeldin of Arab-Palestinian descent: "They are are out to destroy us." Then pointed to articke 7 of Hamas's constitution which talks about killing Jews, laced with jihadi terminology.[270]

Brendan O'Neill exposes the outrageous response in the West:[271]

Anti-Israel fury in the West has intensified to an extraordinary degree following an escalation of violence in the Middle East in recent days. Protests were instant and inflammatory. Israeli flags were burned on the streets of London. Social media was awash with condemnation. ‘IDF Soldier Recounts Harrowing, Heroic War Story Of Killing 8-Month-Old Child’, tweeted The Onion, to tens of thousands of likes. Israel must be boycotted, isolated, cast out of the international community, leftists cried. Western politicians, including Keir Starmer, rushed to pass judgement. ‘What’s the difference?’, said a placard at a march in Washington, DC showing the Israeli flag next to the Nazi flag. The Jews are the Nazis now, you see. Ironic, isn’t it? This is the question anti-Israel campaigners have never been able to answer: why do they treat Israel so differently to every other nation on Earth? Why is it child-killing bloodlust when Israel takes military action but not when Turkey or India do? Why must we rush to the streets to set light to the Israel flag but never the Saudi flag, despite Saudi Arabia’s unconscionable war on Yemen? Why is it only ‘wrong’ or at worst ‘horrific’ when Britain or America drop bombs in the Middle East but Nazism when Israel fires missiles into Gaza? Why do you merely oppose the military action of some states but you hate Israel, viscerally, publicly, loudly?


On May 14, Facebook shut down 'pro-Israel page with 77 million followers amid claims it had been targeted by radical Muslims posting hate speech.'[272]


Exposure of media's relationship with the controlling terrorists and its propaganda

The general fear by media working in Palestinian-Arab areas has been strong, especially since the infamous filming of the 2000 Ramalla lynch, the media.

The Associated Press, became very angry on May 15, 2021, after Israel gave them a warning to evacuate the building in Gaza before leveling it to the ground, stating it also housed Hamas intelligence.[273] The IDF watched as Hamas and the Iran-backed Islamic Jihad terror groups utilized the warning time to remove objects — possibly munitions — from the building.

AP's spokesman later denied he knew Hamas worked in the vicinity. Despite AP reporter already revealing it in 2014. Including Hamas shooting from around media (human shields) and its influence over reporters / reporting.[274] The US confirmed, seeing the intelligence about Hamas operating in the building,[275] A spokesman for the White House National Security Council under former President Barack Obama, said that the building was long known as an operational center for the Islamic fundamentalist group.[276]


Thus, the obvious influence of the anti Israel jihadists was exposed even further.


Further more, already earlier, it was explained that "It is the liberal agenda of the media that gives Hamas legitimacy for its actions."[277]

In 2018, M Friedman wrote:[278] "Early in that war, I complied with Hamas censorship in the form of a threat to one of our Gaza reporters & cut a key detail from an article: that Hamas fighters were disguised as civilians & were being counted as civilians in the death toll…"

Indeed, The news agency has a long, shameful record of regurgitating the terror group's lies.[279]


  • The building demolished by IDF also housed anti-Israel Al Jazeera which is by Qatar supporter of Hamas.[280]

After the ceasefire, Al Jazeera was applauded in Gaza rally.[281]


  • Writer exposed the NYT "emotive" front page re conflict and what it says about woke western media journalists fulfilling Hamas' agenda.[282]


  • In June, 2021, "Islamic terror outfit Hamas honours Al Jazeera for its ‘high professionalism’ during the recent Israel-Gaza clashes."[283][284]



The BBC came under fire, after an Arab "palestine" based journalist in Ramallah, Tala Halawa, who staunchly supported Bella Hadid anti-Israel tweets (which was laced with that apartheid slur), was exposed for her "Hitler was right" and other hate tweets.[288][289][290][291][292]

This pro-Hitler's-genocide "journalist" also tried to sugarcoat the horrific ‘from the river to the sea Palestine will be free’ and ‘free, free Palestine’. [293]

UNRWA on Hamas using schools

UNRWA found (this time too) attack tunnel under one of its Gaza schools.

[294] From Arab journslist Khaled Abu Toameh:[295]
UNRWA 'condemns the existence and potential use by Palestinian armed groups of tunnels underneath its schools (in Gaza) in the strongest possible terms It is unacceptable that students and staff be placed at risk in such a way.'

Ceasefire

On May 20, 2021, a ceasefire has been announced to go into effect at 2AM next day. Israeli officials, denied any agreements have been reached with Hamas.[296] Just a half an hour before the ceasefire to take effect, Hamas led barrages towards the 'envelope' area.[297]

It came after some 1,500 terror targets were attacked with thousands of munitions and about 4,360 attempts were made to launch from Gaza at Israel, of which about 3,400 crossed into the State of Israel, about 680 fell in the Gaza Strip and about 280 fell into the sea.[298] After the ceasefire, Biden said 'No peace until Middle East nations recognize Israel's right to exist.'[299] He then added his support for 'two states.'

According to IDF data, about 200 terrorists were killed in the operation, including about 20 senior officials, but the army estimates that these figures are expected to rise in the coming days, after the bodies of the debris from Gaza are rescued.[300]


An analysis of fatalities by Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center records eight children under the age of 18 were killed by misfired Palestinian rockets during just the first two days of Israel’s defense operation. [301]


Though the Gaza based Arab Palestinians "reported" that most of their purported killed were civilians, they did post posters, bragging about the "martyrs" pictured with weapons.[302]

Hamas has a record of lying about fatalities.[303] Even biased NYT in its own propaganda piece had to insert the line: Human rights researchers say Hamas strictly controls information about civilian deaths in Gaza to hide its losses and failures...[304]

It has been noted,[305]

Certain facts are irrefutable. The terrorists are motivated by hatred and aim to wound or kill innocent women, men and children. Israel, by contrast, is motivated by the legal and moral imperative to protect and preserve life, and is always entirely justified in acting in its own self-defense...It is impossible to obtain reliable data on civilian casualties in Gaza. Data that is provided to and reported by the media come from the Gaza Health Ministry, which is run by Hamas, a U.S.-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization. What we do know — what is proven — is that Hamas commits war crimes by using Palestinians as human shields. No place in Gaza is safe from Hamas. Rockets, mortars, rifles and missiles are stored or fired from schoolsapartment buildingsofficesmosques and hospitals.

  22. Who lit the match that started the fire? Hanan Amiur, Shlomi Ben-Meir, CAMERA, May 29, 2021.

    ...sequence of events: The wave of violence in Jerusalem – and the Jewish-Arab tensions that ensued – began almost a month before the situation in the city led to a war in Gaza. On April 15th, a Palestinian youngster from Jerusalem uploaded to his TikTok account a video showing him without provocation harshly slapping a Jewish religious teen riding in the city’s light rail.

    Soon afterwards, attacks on Jewish bystanders became a trend. Many young Arabs started uploading countless – dozens if not hundreds – of videos to TikTtok in which they are seen attacking policemen, humiliating ultra-orthodox passers–by, and beating them with severe violence.

    At that moment, Haaretz was still silent on the phenomenon; the newspaper started reporting on the tension in Jerusalem only on April 22nd, after the Jewish extreme-right organization Lehava held a parade in the eastern part of the city, in which racist slurs against Arabs were chanted.

    Even then, 'Haaretz' hid the reason for the tension from its readers. When its Jerusalem correspondent Nir Hasson was criticized for the blatant omission, he responded on the TikTok terror: “those are ugly incidents but not exactly the worst terrorism we’ve seen… a slap, throwing a cup of coffee and a few stones are not breaking news…”

    The Jerusalem tensions that were initiated by the attacks against Jews led, on April 24th, to the firing of 36 rockets and mortar shells from the Gaza Strip into southern Israel. This barrage was met with a very mild Israeli response, with the intent of preventing further escalation.

    One week later, on April 30th, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas announced he was delaying the Palestinian elections, which should have been held on May 22nd. Hamas, which was expected to perform well in the elections, called Abbas’ announcement ‘a coup’ and added that if the elections were cancelled, Israel would be held accountable. The organization’s spokesperson stated:

    Postponing the election is not justified and we oppose it. [This is] … a surrender to the will of the occupier. There is an opportunity to turn this refusal into an open popular campaign against Israel in Jerusalem. [emphasis added]

    And so the popular campaign began; the legal battle in Sheikh-Jarrah was the pretext that Hamas initially used, while the Israeli government tried to prevent the ensuing escalation.

    On May 7th, at the request of the Prime Minister Netanyahu and the Minister of Internal Security Amir Ohana, MK Itamar Ben-Gvir vacated the parliamentary office he had opened in Sheikh Jarrah (although he had the legal right to keep it open).

    The next evening, on May 8th, the ‘Laylat al-Qadr’ prayer was held at the Temple Mount. It quickly turned into an extreme riot that included hurling stones, rocks and Molotov cocktails which were pre-prepared on the Mount and thrown at policemen, many of whom were injured.

    The riot was planned in advance, among other things by transporting thousands of extremist Islamic activists from northern Israel to the Temple Mount.

    The next day, May 9th, Haaretz correspondent Nir Hasson reported that stones were hurled at the Western Wall Plaza.

    The same day the Israeli government took another step to calm the situation, by requesting the Supreme Court to postpone the hearing on the eviction of the Palestinian families for non-payment of rent from Jewish-owned houses in Sheikh Jarrah. It should be noted that the schedule of the legal proceedings on the matter were set long in advance, by the court.

    On May 10th, the government took another drastic step towards conciliation, despite the heavy public cost involved: it announced the closure of the Temple Mount for Jews for at least a week (eventually, the closure lasted for 19 consecutive days).

    The same day, Prime Minister Netanyahu made an additional decision to calm the tensions – he ordered to change the Jerusalem Day’s Flag Parade route.

    Later that day, which was Jerusalem Day, the Flag Parade was diverted from its regular route.

    To review, in order to deescalate the situation and maintain calm:

    1.) Israel’s reacted with restraint to volleys of Hamas missiles two weeks before the blowup.

    2.) The Israeli government closed the Temple Mount to Jews

    3.) MK Ben-Gvir vacated his office from Sheikh Jarrah

    4.) The Supreme Court hearing on the Sheikh Jarrah case was postponed

    After all this, Hamas made it clear that it would use the postponement of the Palestinian elections to “open a popular campaign against Israel in Jerusalem,” and on that day of May 10th, Hamas launched a heavy barrage of rockets on Jerusalem.

    Immediately after, the Arab anti-Jewish violence in Jerusalem spread throughout the country. In mixed Jewish-Arab towns such as Lod, Acre, Jaffa and others, hundreds of Arabs gathered to attack Jewish passers-by, throw rocks at driving cars, vandalizing and burning Jewish-owned businesses, houses, vehicles and synagogues. Several lynchings also occurred.

    ...data from Israel’s Fire and rescue services for May 16th shows a clear picture: 10 burned synagogues compared to 0 burned mosques, 28 mosques that were used to organize for violent riots compared to 0 synagogues, 112 burned Jewish houses compared to one burned Arab house (by Arabs), 673 damaged Jewish houses compared to 13 Arab houses, 849 burnt Jewish-owned cars compared to Arab-owned 13 cars. All these and more point to the fact that almost all of the violence and rioting was carried out by Israeli Arabs against Israeli Jews.

  25. Antisemitic attacks spread like ‘wildfire’ in the U.S. during Gaza conflict, PBS Newshour, May 24, 2021.
    ... The span of these attacks, they spread like wildfire across the country. You mentioned a few, California, Arizona, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, New York, New Jersey, South Carolina, Florida, acts of harassment and vandalism and violence.

    So, number one, the span is much greater than what we have seen, but secondly the tone, the brazenness, the audacity of these assaults in broad daylight. We have seen people basically say, if you are wearing a Jewish star, you must be a Zionist and you should be killed.

    We have seen people hurling bottles and objects at homes with mezuzot on the door that were identifiably Jewish. We have seen people driving cars or marauding through Jewish neighborhoods and yelling, "We're going to rape your women," right, or yelling things like "Allahu akbar," and literally then wreaking physical violence on people.

    And one of the incidents that was captured was in broad daylight in Times Square, a group of people beating and bloodying a Jewish man whose only crime was he was wearing a kippah, to the point where he was left unconscious in the street while people kicked him, bloodied him with like crutches. 

    ... Well, let's be clear. None of the people committing these crimes wearing MAGA hats, right?

    The reality is.. I do believe that political language can have real world consequences. But this is very different kind of political language... in this case, we have people waving Palestinian flags and then beating Jewish people. And, in this case, you know what I might really draw a parallel to is the hate crimes committed against Asian Americans, where unhinged, fictionalized conspiracies about China first spouted by political leaders led to real-world consequences, as Asian Americans were attacked on the streets.

    Well, today, we have unhinged, fictionalized conspiracies about Israel, that somehow the Jewish state is systematically slaughtering children or committing genocide. And then that leads to real-world attacks on Jewish people in the streets of America, on our campuses, in our communities.

    So, although, again, the political tenor may be different, the real outcome is the same. And that's why we think people, regardless of where you are on the spectrum, need to speak out clearly and firmly and forcefully and say, in an unambiguous way, that anti-Semitism is unacceptable, because, again, this isn't activism. It's hate, and it should be called out as such.

    In Italy, some 3,000 pro-Palestinian protesters gathered at the Piazza Duomo outside Milan’s iconic cathedral, waved Palestinian flags, burned Israeli flags, and yelled “Allahu Akbar”.

    Silvia Sardone, a member of Matteo Salvini’s League and Member of the European Parliament, said of Thursday’s protest: “Yesterday’s anti-Israel demonstration, with thousands of people present, was punctuated by unacceptable moments.” “On more than one occasion, there were shouts and chants of ‘Allahu Akbar’, and the Israeli flag was burned in the crowd,” Ms Sardone said.

    She also criticised the inaction from Milan’s leftist Mayor Beppe Sala, claiming he was "non-existent" because he was "probably afraid of offending some of his supporters."

  38. Bennett is right, the Arabs [sector are more criminal], Eric Greenstein, Mida, 08/02/2015.

    ... Leading in the percentage of serious crime. The data is extremely serious. In July 2014, the report of the Knesset Research and Information Center dealt with the treatment of serious violence among the Arab sector - which was prepared, by the way, at the request of MK Hanin Zoabi. The report revealed that as of June of last year, 49% of criminal prisoners in Israel belong to the Arab sector. Considering that this is a sector that accounts for about one-fifth of the total population in Israel, this is a particularly high number.

    From the report of the Knesset Information and Research Center

    The said report is not about vehicle thefts, but about particularly serious offenses. For example, in segmenting the number of cases open by crime, between the years 2006-2006 it became clear that the Arabs (along with other foreigners) are responsible for 55 percent of those suspected of murder, and 49 percent of those accused of murder; 55 percent of those suspected of attempted murder, and 58 percent of those charged with it; And 58 percent of those suspected of serious bodily harm and 45 percent of those guilty of it. In a robbery in serious circumstances, the number was 1,625 non-Jews compared to 1,535 Jews. As can be seen in the charts below, even after deducting other foreign groups that are sometimes included in the statistics, due to the size of the Arab sector in the population, these numbers are extremely high...

    It is estimated that in the northern villages and other places there are many thousands of weapons and ammunition that are not in their possession. Or in the words of [Arab] MK Ahmad Tibi, "The quantities of weapons in Arab localities do not embarrass armed militias."

    In his speech, Minister Bennett added that "this first of all hurts the Arabs." Indeed, the Ministry of Homeland Security's 2014 report 'National Violence Index' segmented the transfers in the Jewish and non-Jewish sectors and concluded that "in most cases the perpetrator and victim are from the same sector." On this issue Bennett gets full backing from [Ahmed] Tibi. Thus, at a meeting of a parliamentary inquiry committee held in February 2012, he said that “internal violence and its spread [in Arab society in Israel] deprives many of sleep. "Sometimes not a day goes by without murder or violence." In 2014, he added that Tibi “The disproportionate rates of crime and murder in Arab-Palestinian society in Israel should not be ignored. "The phenomenon of crime is felt more and more severely than any other part of Palestinian society." And until there is finally an issue in which such cross-border and sectoral agreement has been found, who are we to argue?
  39. Crime in the Arab sector: How many were arrested in 2020? Itzik Saban, Israel Hayom, Jan 12, 2021. ...The police fight against gunfire and weapons in the Arab sector: Data on police activity in the past year indicate a significant increase in the extent of enforcement of weapons offenses in Arab society in Israel. In 2020, which was in the shadow of the fight against the Corona virus, the police increased their activities against weapons offenses and arrested a total of 5,713 suspects in shooting and weapons offenses throughout the country - an increase of about 22% in the number of detainees compared to 2019...
  40. It is possible to eradicate crime in Arab society: we need to focus on the pockets of criminal organizations Yuval Diskin, Globes, Dec 29, 2020. [A mosque in Kafr Qassem. The "Wild West" is resurrected in the Arab sector / Photo: Associated Press, Oded Balilty] The severe violence in the Arab sector, the expansive spread of organized crime in recent years, the enormous amounts of illegal weapons, and the transformation of entire areas of the country into governmental territories, have long become a serious social threat and no less a serious security threat to the State of Israel.
  41. We need to talk about this: Most of those murdered by their spouses are Arabs, Ariel Schnabel, MakorRishon, Oct 21, 2020. 13 out of 19 women murdered this year are Arabs. But the media almost ignores their origins, perhaps for fear of political correctness. Voting for a proven problem is not racism, not stigmatizing the whole public and certainly not something that can be ignored - one must talk about the phenomenon, in order to save the next woman.
  42. The number of crimes in Arab society is on the rise, Hezki Baruch - Channel 7, 7 Nissan 5780, April 1, 2020. The report of the Research and Information Center in the Knesset reveals that while in 2019 there was a decrease in crime among the Jewish public, among Israeli Arabs the crime rate continues to rise.

    Hamas’ reluctance.

    Despite ongoing efforts by Iran and Hezbollah to restore relations with the Syrian government, some experts contend Hamas could lose significant support locally if it were to opt for a full restoration of relations with Damascus.      This, analysts say, is because thousands of Palestinian refugees remain in the custody of the Syrian government and areas where Hamas is concentrated intensely felt the impact of government attacks in the early years of the war.

The trend soon spread and many young Arabs began to upload countless videos in which they were seen attacking police officers, humiliating ultra-Orthodox passers-by and beating them with severe violence. In the online edition, Haaretz devoted a small, secret and marginal article by the reporter on ultra-Orthodox affairs to document the slap in the face that started the wave. Since then, and throughout the countless records of attacks by Jewish passers-by by Arabs, I have not seen any documentation of the phenomenon in Haaretz.

He was charged by the Lahav 433 unit for suspected incitement, violence, terrorism and making threats.
  154. The inciting sheikh: The imam who shared a video calling for the murder of police officers was arrested, News 20, 7th of Tammuz 5722 (17/06/2021)... Elbaz is the largest mosque imam in Lod.

  156. Yishai Friedman, 'The "non-racist" attacker from Jaffa works for liberation "from occupation" and admires Hitler.' MakorRishon, April 22, 2021. https://www.makorrishon.co.il/opinion/339719/ . ...a brief browse on his Facebook page reveals quite a bit of antisemitic content. The flipping of the nationalist, racist and anti-Semitic motives was very rapid. Too fast. Because in the story of the two attackers, members of the Garbua family, there is a lot of art and hatred of Jews... From conversations I had with Jewish residents in Jaffa who experienced harassment from their Arab neighbors, it turns out that this is not the first time that one of the brothers, Ahmad Garbua, has harassed someone who he saw as a Jew... Jews in Jaffa, mostly religious, experience violence and anti-Semitism every week that includes beatings and harassment. The Israeli police act and stop attackers in case of a complaint, but the atmosphere among the authorities (court, municipality and also the police), quite a few locals tell me, is to sweep under the rug the nationalist and racist issue. When Arab boys beat a yeshiva student just like that on a clear day, it is a "brawl," with no nationalist or racist background, just a local criminal incident. These incidents are not reported or defined, neither by state authorities nor by the media, as hate crimes as is customary in... But everyone knows and understands that the motive is a great hatred for the presence of Jews in these places. But what makes the dance of righteousness and inclusion of the left particularly embarrassing are the publications over the years of Ahmad Garbua in which he is revealed as one who is not ashamed to spread anti-Semitism, hatred of Jews and much to Palestinian art. Not a neighbors' conflict but a national-religious struggle in which it is expressed that the Jews are "the sons of the monkeys and the pigs" and shows great enthusiasm from people like Adolf Hitler, Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein...

"They consistently ignore or downplay the fact that Israel’s security measures in the West Bank and around Gaza are the response to well-documented terror activities. The ridiculous ‘apartheid‘ slur in this report is belied by the fact that, as it stands, Israel’s next Government may well rely on the support of Arab parties, voted for by the country’s fully-enfranchised Arab citizens. "Israel’s Arab citizens have been appointed as ambassadors, professors, Supreme Court judges, hospital directors, and other key roles throughout Israel’s socio-economic landscape. Civil society organisations should be directing their efforts towards reinvigorating the peace process, not trading in false hyperbole that extends the cycle of conflict," she said. NGO Monitor president Professor Gerald Steinberg, also criticised the report writing in the Jerusalem Post that it comprised "the standard mix of shrill propaganda, false allegations and legal fictions."

Even then, in 2013, members of the Student Council claimed that his remarks were full of "historical inaccuracies" and that they were an "attack on Israel in disguise." Upon graduation he began working at the Center for Constitutional Rights, where he represented a professor fired from the University of Illinois for tweets such as "Scores have turned anti-Semitism from something terrible to something respectable since 1948." His hobby at the time was, by the way, lecturing at events of "Students of Justice in Palestine," one of the most extremist anti-Israel student organizations, who argue that the Palestinian state should cover the entire territory of Israel. From the beginning of its activity until today, he presents Israel as an apartheid state that carries out ethnic cleansing.

The Blaze, May 16, 2021. https://www.theblaze.com/news/israel-reveals-smoking-gun-evidence-proving-hamas-worked-in-ap-building-reporter-contradicts-aps-president#toggle-gdpr . The former AP journalist revealed in a 2014 article for the Atlantic [6] that AP journalists knew about the presence of Hamas terrorists, explaining how Hamas uses the media to disseminate its narrative about the Israel-Palestine conflict.

    When Hamas's leaders surveyed their assets before this summer's round of fighting, they knew that among those assets was the international press. The AP staff in Gaza City would witness a rocket launch right beside their office, endangering reporters and other civilians nearby—and the AP wouldn't report it, not even in AP articles about Israeli claims that Hamas was launching rockets from residential areas. (This happened.) Hamas fighters would burst into the AP's Gaza bureau and threaten the staff—and the AP wouldn't report it. (This also happened.) Cameramen waiting outside Shifa Hospital in Gaza City would film the arrival of civilian casualties and then, at a signal from an official, turn off their cameras when wounded and dead fighters came in, helping Hamas maintain the illusion that only civilians were dying. (This too happened; the information comes from multiple sources with firsthand knowledge of these incidents.)

    [Paul] Colford, the AP spokesman, confirmed that armed militants entered the AP's Gaza office in the early days of the war to complain about a photo showing the location of a rocket launch, though he said that Hamas claimed that the men "did not represent the group." The AP "does not report many interactions with militias, armies, thugs or governments," he wrote. "These incidents are part of the challenge of getting out the news—and not themselves news."

    Friedman also explained that Hamas knows "international coverage from the territory could be molded to its needs" and that reporters can "be intimidated when necessary and that they would not report the intimidation." What did Israel say? A source close to Israeli Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi told the Jerusalem Post [7] that Israeli officials provided the U.S. government with evidence to corroborate their claim that Hamas military assets operated from of the building. "We showed them the smoking gun proving Hamas worked out of that building," the source said. "I understand they found the explanation satisfactory." In fact, officials in multiple Israeli government agencies confirmed the call that took place between President Joe Biden and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday was to, in part, show American officials the intelligence confirming Hamas' presence inside the building...

Tommy Vietor, a spokesman for the White House National Security Council under former President Barack Obama, said that the building was long known as an operational center for the Islamic fundamentalist group.

    The claim that the conflict should be reported only in terms of the injustices caused to the Palestinians by Israel and the unilateral accusations cause the population of Israel to go to the right and rule out the possibility of an agreement

    [...] If Hamas has a tremendous achievement, it is the unconscious mobilization of some of the media to help it. Hamas' deeds simply do not report. It is reminiscent of cases of domestic violence, when all the neighbors know what is going on but prefer to close their eyes, even though in this case the motives are completely different. This is the result of an agenda that is supposed to help the Palestinians. A similar thing is happening now as well. The level of reporting in the international media on trampling, stabbing, stones and Molotov cocktails is marginal, if at all. In the local media, the events are reported, but with the complacency of a bloody routine. We hardly hear about the incitement or interests behind this routine. During wars we tend to be amazed: how is it that the foreign media does not report on Hamas launchers that are in hospitals and schools? How can there not be talk of using civilians as human shields? The Channel 1 film about the BDS.. showed some Gaza residents agreeing to tell about the rule of animalistic government, the horrific violence and fear of death that keeps all Gazans silent.

    But because of the "liberal agenda" in many media, not many people in the world know about it. This goes beyond the agenda, according to which the conflict should be reported only in terms of the injustices caused to the Palestinians by Israel. The rest are allowed to do to the Palestinians as they please, but that is simply not part of the story that is reported to the world.
