Hamas Coup Against Abbas Foiled.

A large scale operation mounted from May to August by the IDF and Israel Security Agency (ISA or Shin Bet) foiled a Hamas network’s plot to carry out a coup in the Palestinian Authority (PA) in Judea and Samaria.

The news about the operation was under a gag order until today.

The Hamas infrastructure in Judea and Samaria was controlled by a Hamas HQ in Turkey. The plot was to carry out a series of cruel terror attacks against Israel and create a situation of security instability, then take advantage of that situation to take over the PA.

Israel announced that 93 Hamas terrorists were arrested in the operation. Of these, 46 were taken to interrogation by the ISA. Hamas terror funds amounting to over 600,000 shekels (about $170,000) were confiscated and weapons including 54 guns, 6 handguns and 7 RPGs were seized.

The network was assisted by an additional array in Jordan and on carriers, who carried funds amounting to over 2 million NIS into Judea and Samaria for the purchase of weapons and hideout apartments.

The military infrastructure was headed by Riad Nasser, 38, of Deir Kadis in the Binyamin region, who has served several stints in jail for Hamas terror activity.

Nasser was recruited by Saleh Alaruri, 47, who is in charge of the Hamas infrastructure in Judea and Samaria, and who is currently in Turkey. Nasser’s interrogation revealed a carefully crafted plan for toppling the PA government of Mahmoud Abbas.

One Year after Historic Attacks, Egypt Has Yet to Aid Christians

Few church buildings restored as Copts struggle to rebuild their lives.

One year after the attacks, Mina Thabet can still see the ruins in his mind; a seemingly endless series of scorched, hollowed-out church buildings, schools, homes and businesses stretching out across Egypt.

On Aug. 14, 2013, thousands of Muslims began a four-day rampage throughout the country seeking revenge for the military-backed, popular ouster of the Islamist president Mohamed Morsi. They attacked anything remotely associated with Christ, Christians or Christianity.

When it was over, Thabet, a well-known Coptic human rights activist, went to survey the damage. He said it was a life-changing experience.

“I visited Minya – it was awful,” he said. “When I got to the Corniche area, I saw how much damage had been done, and I saw the bathroom that had what remained of two people who were burned alive inside.”

A year has passed since the attacks, but Mina and others say that Christians are still struggling to rebuild their lives. After the first day of attacks, then-Defense Minister Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, now the nation’s president, publicly promised that the army would restore all church buildings destroyed in the attacks. Only five of the 32 destroyed church buildings have been rebuilt.

More importantly, Mina and others said, Christians have received no government assistance to replace more than 100 homes, businesses and other personal property lost in the attacks.

“There were three stages for rebuilding and renovating churches,” Mina said. “Of the three stages, they haven’t finished the first step, which doesn’t even include 10 churches. They haven’t done anything to help the people.”

Alcança, quem não cansa

Mas é capaz de ser mais prudente esperar sentado.

El Vaticano pide a los líderes musulmanes que condenen la violencia y persecución que sufren cristianos, yazidíes, y otras minorías religiosas y étnicas en Irak.
En una declaración, el Pontificio Consejo para el Diálogo Interreligioso pide a líderes religiosos, sobre todo a los musulmanes, que condenen abiertamente la violencia y den un paso contra los yihadistas y sus actos críminales. No hacerlo dañaría la credibilidad de cualquier religión, de sus seguidores y líderes,asegura la declaración
El documento también subraya que ningún motivo ni religión puede justificar esta violencia, e incluye una lista con los crímenes cometidos por los yihadistas que pretenden imponer un Estado islámico.
Entre ellos destacan la decapitación y crucifixión por motivos religiosos; la conversión forzada al Islam, o el pago de un impuesto en su lugar; los secuestros de mujeres y niñas, y la destrucción de lugares de culto.
 El documento reconoce que la mayor parte de instituciones religiosas y políticas musulmanas se oponen a los yihadistas. Sin embargo, aclara, esta oposición no ha evitado más ataques. (…)

Referendos

Referendo

 

Por forma a aplicar as mesmas regras universais às relações internacionais, Vladimir Putin acede a fazer mais um referendo, desta vez no Leste da Ucrânia. Polónia, Finlândia, Moldávia, países bálticos, Geórgia e Azerbaijão são os países que se seguem na “short list” onde a Rússia deseja prosseguir a democracia. A questão é: “Considera prioritário o envio de ajuda humanitária suiça?”

Visionamento recomendado

Apesar dos especiais cuidados que os meios de comunicação social devem ter na abordagem ao tema do terrorismo, aconselho o visionamento do trabalho da Vice, o primeiro orgão de comunicação “embedded” com o grupo terrorista Estado Islâmico.

The Islamic State (Part 3)- O passeio com a polícia da virtude e dos bons costumes islâmicos.

The Islamic State (Part 2)- A doutrinação de crianças na moral do grupo terrorista.

Em casa de terrorista, espetam-se as manas a viver com o inimigo

É natural que as pessoas queiram o melhor para as famílias. Enviar as três irmãs para o berço de todos os males do mundo não é um bocadinho pesado? Não ficariam a salvo das maldades no “ghetto de Varsóvia de Gaza”? Afinal, que criatura é esta que permite que as irmãs vivam na “casa dos criminosos de guerra”?

Greenpeace in Chaos as Staff Revolt Against Management

Greenpeace is in turmoil after more than 40 staff signed a letter calling two of the group’s most senior officials to resign. The group faced ridicule last month after it emerged that Husting chose to regularly fly between his home in Luxembourg and work in Amsterdam, leaving a massive carbon footprint.

O fabuloso destino de Ana Drago

Passa pela esquerda e pela eterna soma de divisões canhotas

A ex-dirigente do Bloco de Esquerda Ana Drago assumiu, esta quarta-feira, a criação de uma plataforma política de esquerda que congregue “movimentos que já estão no terreno” que tenha a “seriedade e humildade” de ser colocada “perante os votos dos portugueses”.

 

O Ranking das Esquerdas Mais Convergentes sempre esteve ultrapassado pela realidade interventiva d@s cidadad@s que querem tacho e pela natureza das coisas.

É provável, que à data da publicação do artigo tenham surgido de forma espontânea, outros movimentos de convergência da esquerda portuguesa. Assim sobrem pessoas e se redescubram causas. Afinal, precisamos de mais esquerdas por forma a tornar mais difícil a vida aos comediantes e a reinvenção permanente com um verdadeiro efeito multiplicador das petições on-lne.
