’Israel’ Finds 3 Missing Dead Settlers, Hamas Warns: Any Aggression to Open Gates of Hell

Local Editor

"Israeli" security forces on Monday located the bodies of the three settlers, who went missing on June 12 while hitchhiking in the Occupied al-al-Khalil area of the West Bank.


The three bodies were found around 6 pm in a shallow grave in the wadi between Beit Khalil and Halhul. According to initial "Israeli" estimates, the three were shot shortly after their missing.

"Israeli" army spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said the bodies had been found "under a pile of rocks" near the village of Halhul.

Shortly before the announcement that the bodies had been found, the "Israeli" army said it was searching intensively in the Beit Kahil area.

The "Israeli" police had come under fierce criticism after it emerged that an emergency call from one of the settlers in the night they disappeared saying that they had been captured was ignored. The police did not inform the "Israeli" army or Shin Bet that the boys may be missing until one father arrived at a police station at 3am, some five hours after their disappearance.

Deputy "Israeli" war minister Danny Danon also confirmed the bodies had been discovered, claiming they had been murdered by "Hamas terrorists" and calling for a widespread operation to "eradicate" the movement.

Meanwhile, the "Israeli" cabinet was torn early Tuesday over the Zionist entity's action against the death of the missing settlers.

The meeting ended without reaching an agreement.

The "Israeli" Economy Minister Naftali Bennett was furious at the army's suggested to bomb several empty structures in the Gaza Strip, saying a much stronger response was required.

War Minister Moshe Ya'alon, Finance Minister Yair Lapid and so-called "Justice" Minister Tzipi Livni lashed out at Bennett for that, advocating for a more measured response.

For his part, "Israeli" Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu concluded the discussion by saying a strong response was needed, but did not offer one.
Eventually, the cabinet decided on the "Israeli" army's overnight strikes of 34 targets in the Gaza Strip.

Another meeting was scheduled to take place on Tuesday evening.

An "Israeli" army source said early Wednesday morning that the army was considering its next move in the Gaza Strip.

"We're preparing a plan to advance an operation in the Strip. The objective is to avoid escalation and act responsibly," the source said.

However, the source added, "if we see Hamas heading towards a confrontation - we'll go there."

In response to the "Israeli" threats against the besieged Gaza strip, Hamas vowed that any "Israeli" action to punish Hamas would open "the gates of hell."

"If the occupiers carry out an escalation or a war, they will open the gates of hell on themselves," Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri stated.

Hamas has dismissed the "Israeli" allegations as "stupid", with Abu Zuhri accusing Tel Aviv of fabricating the kidnapping as an excuse to crack down on the resistance movement.

"The disappearance and murder of the three "Israelis" is only based on the "Israeli" narrative, and the occupation is trying to use this story to justify its extensive war against our people, against resistance and against Hamas," he charged.

What does ISIS’ declaration of a caliphate mean?

Jun 30, 2014, al Akhbar
The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has now officially become a global Islamic caliphate. It took 14 months for its leader, who is known as Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, to set himself up as a ruler “by order of God.” He is not only the “commander of the faithful” now, but also the caliph-at-large, and the “successor” of Prophet Mohammad. The historical declaration took place on the first day of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan of the year 1435 AH (2014 AD).
On Sunday, Abu Mohammed al-Adnani, spokesperson for ISIS, declared the creation of the Islamic caliphate, “the jihadis’ long-running dream.” This marks the first time the caliphate has been “restored” by anyone since Ataturk abolished it almost 90 years ago.
A few thousand ISIS fighters have ostensibly abolished the borders drawn by the Sykes-Picot Agreement. Meanwhile, ISIS has been rebranded as the global Islamic State (IS). Its black banner, once flapping over the land between Aleppo and Diyala, now sits above a borderless entity with absolute authority over all Muslim lands.
ISIS, or IS, believes that pledging allegiance to the new caliph is a duty for every Muslim, and those who fail or refuse to do so shall be deemed as apostates, and will be fought and struck down. This was clearly stated by Adnani, who said, “Beware of splitting the ranks. Those who want to split the ranks, strike their heads with bullets […].”
But what is the meaning of declaring an Islamic caliphate? A Salafi cleric says, “It means that borders and barriers among Islamic countries are now invalid. There will be a single Islamic economic system and currency, and an army to defend it.” He continued, “It also means there will no longer be any subservience to any country, requiring the establishment of universities and factories to make Muslims a major power in all fields.”
ISIS, represented by its senior leaders and notables, decided to declare the Islamic caliphate and to install a caliph for the Muslims, having in its view satisfied all the requirements to do so. These requirements are the same ones caliphs supposedly needed since about 1,400 years ago.
According to Salafi clerics, the caliph is required to rule a territory in every sense of the word, and not in a provisional manner. They argue that ISIS staked its claim to the caliphate on the basis that it controls vast swaths of territory, in addition to having funds, an army, and a population under its control, though ISIS did not take into account the fact that each era should have a different concept for what a state should be. Adnani had specified the role of the state as being to release prisoners, appoint governors and judges, collect taxes, and disseminate religious education, among other functions.
Some radical Islamists have criticized ISIS for declaring a caliphate without first obtaining the unanimous consent of the nation’s scholars of religion. If Baghdadi is to be a caliph for all Muslims, then is it enough for him to obtain the consent of all scholars of Iraq and Syria – assuming that even this could happen to begin with?
What is certain is that the declaration of the caliphate puts all militant Islamic groups in an awkward position. Addressing such groups, ISIS had declared, “The legitimacy of your groups is null and void. It is a sin for any of you to sleep this night without pledging allegiance,” adding that other militant groups delay victory because they are a cause for divisions.
One supporter of al-Nusra Front has questions about the meaning of this caliphate too. He said the move means that Taliban and various al-Qaeda-linked groups, in addition to jihadi groups active in different countries, would henceforth be committing a sin, and fighting them and killing their members is a duty, unless they accept Baghdadi as the caliph.
In turn, a member of the Abdullah Azzam Brigades weighs in. He told Al-Akhbar, “There is no good in declaring a caliphate under these circumstances; it is something that has evil consequences, which means it is invalid.”
The young Lebanese man, who is wanted by the authorities for his affiliation to a terrorist group, continued, “Its establishment at this time ruins everything that the mujahidin…have built everywhere. The declaration means that anyone who does not pledge allegiance to them will be declared an apostate and sentenced to die.”
When asked whether he was going to give his allegiance to the self-proclaimed caliph Baghdadi, he said, “I will not split the ranks, but I will definitely not pledge allegiance. I would rather be beheaded a thousand times than do so, because I cannot accept a law that makes it lawful to kill thousands of Muslims unjustly.”
In the same vein, a leader in ISIS’ rival al-Nusra Front said, “Baghdadi ruled that Sheikh Joulani was an apostate for reneging on his allegiance to the emir [i.e. Baghdadi] even though his allegiance was something recommended rather than compulsory.” He continued, “By declaring the caliphate, they are forcing all groups in the Islamic world to be with ISIS in everything, including in its war with al-Nusra, or risk be seen as rogue and as something that ISIS soldiers must fight.”
Another Salafi cleric says that declaring the caliphate is the “essence of folly,” adding that ISIS does not meet the real requirements for doing so. He said, “Does military might establish a state? What about economists and pedagogues? In my opinion, this is suicide that will accelerate its collapse.”
Now that the Islamic caliphate is a fait accompli, jihadis say that all eyes will be on Mecca and Medina next. They say that the caliph will move to appoint envoys to every “wilaya” – a historical term for the provinces of an Islamic state.
Who knows, the wilaya of Lebanon may have its very own emir soon (reports about the appointment of a man named Abdul-Salam al-Urduni as emir of ISIS in Lebanon are incorrect, according to security sources). Perhaps the answer lies with Hizb-ut-Tahrir, the Islamist party that has been calling for years for the restoration of the caliphate.

تقسيم العراق أولاً.. سوريا ثانياً

تقسيم العراق أولاً.. سوريا ثانياً

 تاريخ النشر : 2014-06-29 01:28:13
ايهاب زكي
 بعد اجتماعٍ دام خمس ساعات أخيراً، عقد الرئيس السوري بشار الأسد وضيفه رئيس الوزراء العراقي مؤتمراً صحفياً، أعلنا فيه عن قيام الجمهورية العربية المتحدة، كما أعلنا محافظة أربيل عاصمة مؤقتة للجمهورية فيما ستكون مدينة القدس هي العاصمة الدائمة، وبالطبع فإن هذه مزحة ثقيلة جداً حد الجد، وبعيداً عن المزاح فقد انشغل الرأي العام الاقليمي والدولي أمس بإعلان مجموعة 3+3، والتي انبثقت عن اجتماع سداسي ضم رؤساء الدول الثلاث، إيران سوريا والعراق، والتنظيمات الثلاث، حزب الله الجهاد الإسلامي والجبهة الشعبية القيادة العامة، وهو كما أُعلن في المؤتمر التأسيسي بأن هذه المجموعة تهدف لإقامة جسور التعاون الاقتصادي والعسكري والتنسيق السياسي، وقد تم التوقيع على جميع بنود المعاهدة بما فيها اتفاقية الدفاع المشترك في حفلٍ نقلته على الهواء مباشرة جميع وسائل الإعلام، والحقيقة ما زلت لا أعرف حد اللحظة سر رغبتي الجامحة في المزاح، أو لكأن رأسي فيه ألف جزيرة وألف عربية تفبرك الأخبار وتلفق والتقارير.

يقول مختصون بشؤون الأوجاع العربية حد الإدمان، إن أُسطورية الانتصار السوري الفعلية ستتحول إلى مجرد أيقونة تاريخية معنوية أكثر منها استراتيجية في حال تم النجاح في حرب تقسيم العراق، حيث ستصبح سوريا بين ثلاث كيانات صهيونية معادية، كيان في فلسطين المحتلة وآخر في أربيل المقتطعة وثالث في الأنبار والموصل، حينها سيكون تقسيم سوريا على نفس النهج مسألة وقت، ولن يكون لبنان بالتالي استثناءً، وهذه النتائج النكبات ليست خيالاً بل محض منطق، ويصبح الكيان الصهيوني أصل كل تلك الكيانات والعامل على تحقيقها بفضل أوفياءٍ حد قتل النفس كنواطير النفط، سيصبح صديقاً للجميع داعماً للجميع خصوصاً بالسلاح حتى لا تخرج الثيران من قفص الموت المحتم، ولو أعلم الغيب لأكثرت من التوقعات بأن يحابي الكيان الأصلي بعض كياناته الفرعية على بعضها الآخر، فقد يعطي شحنتين من السلاح لكيان أربيل مقابل نفطها، فيما يعطي شحنة واحدة لكيان الأنبار مقابل عدة تفجيرات في أربيل أو في بغداد أو حتى في ذات الأنبار لا فرق، المهم أن يبقى الدم بعيداً عن وجهته الحقيقية في فلسطين المحتلة.

ولكن الفرق الوحيد أن هذه الأمة وحين نُكبت نكبتها الأولى في فلسطين، لم تكن تمتلك من وقود الحياة شيئاً، اللهم بعض بواريد صيد وأسلحة فاسدة وغلوب باشا كزعيمٍ عروبيٍ "هاشمي"، أما اليوم وهي تمتلك محور يمتد من طهران إلى غزة، مروراً بدمشق وبيروت، وهو محور يمتلك من وقود الحياة أكثر مما يهب النفط من موت، لذلك فهو لن يسمح بأن تُسحب الجغرافيا العراقية من تحت قدميه بعدما استخلصها بالدم من عين المحتل لتصبح مخرزاً في عينه هو، لأن سماحه بذلك يعني ماتقدم من محض منطق، ولكن هذا المحور يمتاز بقدرة دفاعية هائلة بقدر ما يتمتع بحكمةٍ صادمة أحياناً، وأكثر ما يثير خصومه وأعداءه أنه لم يعتد التصرف بردات الفعل المتسرعة، وأن الخطوات لا تُتخذ إلا بعد قتلها بحثاً، ولنسترجع شيئاً من عواطفنا المتألمة حين كانت تعلن مجاميع الخلافة الهائمة على حد سكاكينها عن أي انتصار لها هنا أو هناك على الأراضي السورية، وحتى ردات فعل بعضنا تجاه الصمت المريع والبرود الصقيع لقادة المحور، نكتشف الآن أن من ينتصر أخيراً يصمت كثيراً، ومن يثرثر كثيراً يصمت أخيراً، إما قتلاً أو خِزياً.

والأكثر ثرثرة الآن هم أوباما وآل نفط ومجاميع الخلافة، فأوباما قال لا معارضة في سوريا قادرة على الإطاحة بالأسد، ثم يدعو الكونجرس لدعم غير القادرين بنصف مليار دولار، وحين قارنت ثرثرته بثرثرة جارتي العجوز، اقتنعت بأن الولايات المتحدة تحتاج لرئيس مثل جارتي، على الأقل فهي تثرثر اليوم كما تثرثر في الغد وبدقة وبلا أي تناقض ولو في الفاصلة، وأما آل نفط فقد رأينا المغضوب عليه بندر بعد فشله في استثمار سفكه للدم السوري بتدمير سوريا، أصبح من المرضيين، وظهر إلى جانب الملك عبر نهر الدم العراقي، وأعطاه الثرثار أوباما فرصة ليلعب ركلات الترجيح في الملعب العراقي فلعل وعسى، وأما إعلام آل نفط فهو ثرثار بما يكفي لملئ الأرض صخباً وعويلاً، ولكنه في الغالب خارج من عمق الصحراء، والتائه في صحرائه مهما صرخ فلن يرتد له سوى رجع الصدى وإن تكاثرت حوله الأشباح مؤقتاً، وأما مجاميع الخلافة فما هم إلا صدى لحناجر النفط، ومتى سكت النفط أو أُخرس فمصيرهم التلاشي، ولكن عدونا الحقيقي الآن هو التسرع، وما الصبر إلا رفيق الانتصار وسبيل الاتحاد.

Saudi King Sacks Deputy Defense Minister


Local Editor

Saudi King Abdullah bin AbdulazizSaudi Arabia's King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz sacked the deputy defense minister on Saturday less than two months after he was appointed, the state news agency reported.

The royal decree said the decision to relieve Prince Khaled bin Bandar bin Abdul-Aziz of his post came upon the recommendation of Crown Prince Salman, the defense minister. No reason was given for the order.

Moves in the ruling family are closely watched at home and abroad for clues to who will rule the world's top oil exporter.

Prince Khaled was moved to the post of deputy defense minister in May when King Abdullah removed him from his position as governor of Riyadh Province and appointed his son, Prince Turki, in his place.

The move was seen as strengthening the grip of his branch of the ruling dynasty as it approaches a difficult decision over how to transfer power to the next generation.

King Abdullah, who is over 90, has made a series of changes and appointments over the past two years that have consolidated the position of his allies in the family.

The most recent was the appointment of Prince Muqrin, the youngest of King Abdulaziz's sons to survive into adulthood, as deputy crown prince, a newly created position that makes him next in line to rule after King Abdullah and Crown Prince Salman.

From Tehran: Iran and the expansion of Daash in Iraq

Leader: Fingerprints of Enemy Intelligence in Recent Regional Crisis Obvious
Local Editor
Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution of Iran Grand Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei
The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution of Iran said on Monday that the enemies of Islam feared ‘the reality of awareness of Islamic Umma,’ and they “work to face Islam with their own apparatus and undercover an American-style Islam.”

He quoted Imam Khomeini’s distinction made between the true Islam and American-style Islam when the late Imam said: “The latter, albeit having a genuine Islamic title, tolerates Zionism and despotism; accepts the rule of tyrants, and fully lends itself to its objectives,” the Leader said.

He believed that the evidence showing the fingerprints of the ‘enemy’s intelligence system’ in recent crisis in Islamic societies especially in Iraq was obvious.

Addressing a group of select Quran reciters and memorizers in the first day of holy month of Ramadan, Ayatollah Khamenei said the role played by the Quran reciters in leading the Islamic society to understand the Quran was very strategic, important and priceless.
“Any plans for the Quran should be focused upon bringing the public at home with the Quranic concepts," his eminence stressed.

"The Islamic society would find ‘internal coherence’ through ever-increasing familiarity with the Quran," the Leader said, underlying the importance to contribute to the society’s capability to move forward and meet the challenges ahead.

The Leader cited ‘improving the belief and reliance upon God and His promises,’ and ‘ruling out fears of sublunary concerns’ as the boons of the love of the Quran.

“Reflecting on the Quran saves the Islamic society from the abyss of ignorance and horror, and leads it to the lights of knowing the Creator; which is a major need of the Islamic society to meet challenges ahead,” the Leader asserted.

Ayatollah Khamenei called all Quran reciters and memorizers to ‘strict adherence to religious tenets.’

“You should provide the country’s youth with the ‘best example’ to act upon,” the Supreme Leader said.

Senior Qatari Official: "Jabhat al Nusra are our pets but ISIS is a Saudi project!"

Via FLC

"... Qatar’s military and economic largesse has made its way to Jabhat al-Nusra, to the point that a senior Qatari official told me he can identify al-Nusra commanders by the blocks they control in various Syrian cities. But ISIS is another matter. As one senior Qatari official stated, “ISIS has been a Saudi project.”

ISIS, in fact, may have been a major part of Bandar’s covert-ops strategy in Syria. The Saudi government, for its part, has denied allegations, including claims made by Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, that it has directly supported ISIS. But there are also signs that the kingdom recently shifted its assistance—whether direct or indirect—away from extremist factions in Syria and toward more moderate opposition groups..."

Leaked Document Reveals Who Is Behind Jihadists ISIS Recruitment - Here's a Hint: Obama Just Released 5 Taliban Leaders to Them

 June 27, 2014
A secret document was revealed (see References) which was issued by the Qatari Embassy in the Libyan capital, Tripoli, revealed that Qatar was able to equip some 1,800 volunteers from North Africa to fight in Iraq’s notorious ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant).
The document bears the signature of the Acting Qatari Embassy in Libya, Nayef Abdullah Al Emadi, in which he wrote that “the volunteers completed military and combat training with heavy weapons, especially in the camps Zintan, Benghazi, Zawiya and Misrata in Libya” suggesting to send these fighters in three batches over the Libyan ports to Turkey, and then to enter northern Iraq through Kurdistan.
وثيقة تكشف تجهيز قطر 1800 ارهابي من المغرب العربي
Emadi noted that “these groups will be ready by next week,” and “We call on the need to accelerate in coordination with the Turkish side to receive the fighters in the appropriate port, and let us know the appropriate dates to send those groups.”
Besides Qatar’s aid to the ISIS, the document bolsters the case of Turkey’s involvement. Turkey has aided the ISIS in the northeastern parts of Syria when terrorists like the ISIS continue to organize the theft of oil to be shipped towards Turkey and sold cheaply which funded over $800 million to terrorists including the ISIS. That including Turkey’s secret plan that was exposed via a leaked recording in which the top Turkish officials were audio taped conspiring to even use the ISIS to invade Syria.


Editor's Note: Consider that Qatar is where Obama sent the five Taliban leaders in exchange for deserter Bowe Bergdahl. Does anyone actually think that is incompentence? If you do, please put down the Kool-aid.

Hamas Leader Asks for "Qartari’s" Support for Palestinians against Israeli Aggression, Gives Ultimatum to Netanyahu


Hamas Leader Gives Ultimatum to Netanyahu

TEHRAN (FNA)- A senior leader of the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas warned Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to stop continued attacks on the Palestinians or wait for crushing response.
“Netanyahu will implement his threats, but he should know that if today he decides to deteriorate the situation, tomorrow the decision to stop it won’t be made by him,” Felestin Al-Youm (Palestine Today) quoted senior Hamas leader Ezzat Al-Rashq as saying.
Al-Rashq reminded Netanyahu of the humiliating results of Israel’s previous wars on the Palestinians in Gaza, and ensured the Zionist premier that Israel would have to experience the same humiliation and suffering if it continues with its present aggressions.
Israel killed Hamas activist Mohamed Zayyed Obeid in its latest attack and injured several others.
Three Palestinian civilians suffered injuries at dawn Sunday in a renewed wave of Israeli aerial attacks on different areas of the Gaza Strip.
The Palestinian information center (PIC) reporter in Gaza said that Abu Jarad security site to the South of Gaza city sustained considerable material damage following an Israeli airstrike.
Meanwhile, intensive Israeli military moves in the Eastern border area of Deir Al-Balah district was also reported.
Israeli warplanes also targeted three resistance sites in Khan Younis district, two of them belonging to Al-Qassam Brigades of Hamas and Al-Quds Brigades of Islamic Jihad.
The reporter said that a child suffered slight injuries in the Israeli air raid that targeted Al-Ahrar site in the West of Khan Younis district.
In Rafah area, some Palestinian homes sustained damage when the Israeli army waged five air raids that targeted resistance sites and empty lands.
Two more airstrikes targeted a resistance site belonging to Al-Qassam Brigades to the North of Nuseirat refugee camp in central Gaza and another site near Al-Nour area in the South of Gaza city.
In a later air raid, a 14-year-old girl and a man in his mid-forties suffered injuries when an Israeli warplane bombed a populated area near Al-Farouq Mosque in Azzeitoun neighborhood to the Southeast of Gaza City.
In similar remarks earlier this month, Hamas promised to “open the gates of hell” if the Israeli regime expels its leaders from the West Bank to Gaza in connection with three allegedly missing teens.
Hamas Spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said that if Tel Aviv realizes its threat of expelling Hamas leaders to Gaza, the regime would be “opening the gates of hell”.
“These revenge tactics are tantamount to collective punishment under international law,” Fuad al-Khufash, the director of Ahrar, a Palestinian rights group, told Al-Jazeera. “They are unjustified and merely serve to alleviate the fears” of the Israelis, he said, specifying that arrests took place in Beit Lahm, al-Khalil, Jenin, Nablus, Ramallah and Tubas.
Palestinian officials from the Hamas resistance movement lashed out at both the Israelis and Head of Palestinian Authority Mahmoud Abbas, who is assisting the Tel Aviv regime in the manhunt operation.
Abbas’s position does not reflect the mood of the Palestinian public, said Abu Zuhri.
Abbas called the arrests of the people who already spent decades in prison “a blatant infringement on the release agreement”.
The Israeli regime said it arrested 25 people overnight in some 200 towns, refugee camps and cities in the West Bank, totaling 330 arrests including 240 from Hamas resistance group.

Hamas Asks for Iran’s Support for Palestinians against Israeli Aggression

TEHRAN (FNA)- The Palestinian resistance group, Hamas, in a letter to Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani asked for Tehran’s support against the intensified aggressive moves made by the Israeli regime.
“Given the tragic situation in the Middle-East region, unfortunately at present the situation of Palestine is not under the focuse of the political circles and is no more a priority for the region and the world’s media,” Hamas’s representative in Iran Khalid al-Qoddoumi said in a letter to Larijani on Sunday.
“Misusing the situation, the Zionist enemy has intensified its attacks against the Palestinians under different pretexts and is attempting to take advantage of the regional situation to its interests in the best possible form,” he added.
Qoddoumi pointed to some instances of the Zionist regime’s recent atrocities against the Palestinian people, and called for Iran’s increased support for them.
Also on Saturday, Hamas Politburo Chief Khalid Mashaal voiced his deep concern over the recent attacks by the Israeli security forces on innocent civilians in both the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, and called on Tehran to continue extending its full support for the Palestinians.
In a letter to Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani, Mashaal strongly criticized the mounting atrocities of Tel Aviv against the defenseless Palestinian civilians.
Mashaal further asked the Iranian president and nation to continue their support for the Palestinian nation to enable them to resist against the Zionist occupiers.
Over 300 Palestinians, including Hamas members and lawmakers, have been detained in recent days.
Tel Aviv accuses Hamas of being behind the disappearance of the three missing Israeli settlers. However, the group has denied any involvement.
Hamas says Tel Aviv’s allegations about the abduction of the three Israeli settlers by the Palestinian resistance movement are aimed at torpedoing the recent reconciliation deal between Hamas and Fatah.
In April, Palestinian factions Fatah and Hamas signed an agreement to end years of rivalry and form a unity government. The move irked Washington and Tel Aviv.
