Israel Targets Hamas Outside the Temple Walls (Rev 11:2)

Israel targets Hamas with tank and aircraft fire in Gaza

Palestinian security sources in Hamas-ruled Gaza tell AFP that the Israeli fire hit Hamas military observation posts at three locations along the frontier. No reports of Palestinian casualties.

Israeli army said on Friday it had struck Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip with tank and aircraft fire after shots were fired at troops on the Israeli side of the border.

“No injuries to soldiers were reported,” it said in a statement.

Palestinian security sources in Hamas-ruled Gaza told AFP that the Israeli fire hit Hamas military observation posts at three locations along the frontier.

They said there were no reports of Palestinian casualties.

Palestinians in Gaza have for more than a year gathered at least weekly along the border for often-violent protests, calling on Israel to end its blockade of the enclave.

The Israeli statement did not say if there were mass protests taking place at the time of Friday’s incident.

The Palestinian health ministry in Gaza later said in a statement that 15 people were wounded by Israeli fire during border demonstrations, including “two paramedics and one journalist”.

It gave no further information.

At least 264 Palestinians in Gaza have been killed by Israeli forces since the protests began.

The majority were killed during clashes, with others hit by tank fire or air strikes.

Two Israeli soldiers have been killed over the same period.

Hamas on Friday called on the UN to speed up a plan to funnel Qatari aid into the Palestinian enclave, part of an Egyptian-brokered truce with Israel.

After a severe flare-up between Israel and Hamas last month the ceasefire was hammered out amid fears of escalation.

Hamas said the truce would see Israel ease its crippling blockade of the strip in exchange for quiet.

Israel has not publicly commented on the reported agreement.

‘Accelerate the implementation’

Among measures to help Gazans was a plan to resume blocked aid from Qatar through a UN cash for work programmes.

In November, the Gulf state, which is a long-time Hamas ally, committed to around $15 million a month in aid over six months.

Part of the funds were originally used to pay salaries of Hamas employees, but this was stopped after political opposition in Israel.

Khalil al Haya, deputy head of the Hamas political bureau in Gaza, told AFP Friday that the alternative plan was stalled at the UN.

“The Qatari funds exist and the funds allocated by the World Bank (for the cash for work programmes) exist,” he said.

“But the pace of the implementation of the United Nations mechanisms is slow,” he said, adding an appeal to UN envoy Nickolay Mladenov.

“We call on the United Nations and Mr Mladenov to accelerate the implementation.”

Two million Palestinians live in impoverished Gaza, crammed between Israel, Egypt and the Mediterranean.

Israel, which has fought three wars with Hamas, has blockaded the enclave for more than a decade, and Egypt often closes Gaza’s only other gateway to t he outside world.

On April 1 Israel expanded the fishing zone around Gaza, increasing it in one area to the largest distance in years, in what Hamas officials said was the first step in implementing its “understandings” with the Jewish state.

“The understandings are in place,” al Haya said.”Some of them are going well, such as fishing.”

Modi Warns Pakistan Against ‘Threats’: India Has ‘Mother of Nuclear Bombs’

INDIA’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi has upped the stakes in his country’s ongoing war of words with neighbour and rival Pakistan – by bragging that his country has “the mother of nuclear bombs”, adding that it was “now Pakistan’s turn to weep”.

India Pakistan: Kashmir is ‘flash point’ of nuclear war

Mr Modi, who is campaigning as the 900-million strong nation goes to the polls over the course eight days, with voting due to finish on Sunday, made his inflammatory remarks during a rally in Surendranagar in the western state of Gujarat yesterday. Tensions between India and Pakistan were raised in February after a bomb attack in the disputed Kashmir region which killed 44 paramilitary policemen was later claimed by Pakistan-based Islamist militant group Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM). India responded with air strikes on Jaish camps which it claimed had resulted in the deaths of 400 militants, with Pakistan later downing two Indian Air Force jets as the situation threatened to escalate into all-out war.

We have the mother of nuclear bombs

Narendra Modi

Mr Modi, leader of the nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) said: “We have the mother of nuclear bombs.

“I decided to tell them, do whatever you want to do but we will retaliate.

“In the past our people would weep, go around the world saying Pakistan did this, did that. It is now Pakistan’s turn to weep.

“Those days are gone when India would give in to threats.

“This is a new India and it will strike terrorists well inside their hideouts across the border.”

In a separate development, India suspended cross-border trade with Pakistan-controlled Kashmir because it was being used to funnel weapons and drugs, the government claimed on Thursday, in a further crackdown in the volatile territory.

On Thursday, the Indian home ministry said it had been receiving information that militant groups were using the cross border route to send arms, drugs and fake Indian currency.

The ministry said: “Unscrupulous and anti-national elements are using the route as a conduit for money, drugs and weapons, under the garb of this trade.”

Kashmir is a Muslim-majority region at the heart of decades of hostility, is claimed in its entirety by India and Pakistan, but is ruled in part by both south Asian countries.

The two countries have almost gone to war over the territory on several occasions.

Joshua Pollack, the editor of the Nonproliferation Review and a senior research associate with the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey, told last month: “The India-Pakistan situation is particularly troublesome because of the Kashmir dispute and the terrorist organisations that operate out of Pakistan.

“There has been an entire series of these crises going back to about 2001.

“Usually, the White House, State Department, and Pentagon scramble to urge restraint on the parties.

“Not this time, as far as anyone can tell; they had to figure out how to extricate themselves from this mess.

“That may bode poorly for the future, at least if the US doesn’t make a concerted effort to rebuild its diplomatic position.”

Sadr: thanks to Daesh, Egypt is now under a new despot


Mohamed Mostafa Apr 19, 2019, 4:38 pm

Baghdad ( Iraqi Shia cleric and political leader, Muqtada al-Sadr, has blamed the Islamic State extremist group for several crises in the region, including the controversial constitutional changes in Egypt that would allow President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi to rule one more decade.

In a message posted on his twitter account, Sadr said that due to terrorist attacks by IS, which the extremist group dubs as Ghazwas (holy raids), “Egypt has fallen under a new despot who would tailor the constitution and parliament to fit him”.

Other outcomes of Daesh (Islamic State)’s terrorist activities, according to Sadr, include the U.S. recognition of the Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights, as well as the so-called “deal of the century”, touted by the Donald Trump administration to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Egypt’s parliament has recently approved a proposal by a group of MPs to amend the constitution and a referendum is due starting 21st of April. The amendments would see the current presidential term extended from 4 renewable years to 6, starting with Sisi’s current tenure, which means he could rule until 2030.

Sisi, who, as a former defense minister, overthrow his Islamist predecessor, Mohamed Morsi, has championed a war against Daesh extremists, mainly in Sinai Peninsula, and has jailed many of Morsi’s aides and supporters over terrorism charges

Babylon the Great Will Increase Pressure on Iran

Pompeo: US Will Increase Pressure on Iran

18 April 2019

The US will continue to increase pressure on Iran, according to US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Wednesday, however, he declined to say whether the Donald Trump administration would extend sanctions waivers on eight countries that import Iranian oil.

Pompeo told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that he had “no announcements” on whether the waivers, which allow Iran’s biggest oil buyers to import Iranian crude, would be renewed after they expire in May.

He would also not confirm whether sanctions waivers on Iran’s civilian nuclear program would end, given that Trump pulled the US out of the 2015 international nuclear agreement with Iran, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Actions (JCPOA), in May 2018 and reimposed most nuclear-related sanctions.

Pompeo said: “I can assure the rest of the world that President Trump will continue to ratchet up the pressure on the Islamic Republic of Iran so that their behaviour will change.”

Many members of the Foreign Relations Committee, notably Republican Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, called on Pompeo and the State Department to listen to National Security Advisor John Bolton and end the sanctions waivers when the deadline comes up next month, arguing that Iran’s oil exports generate billions of dollars in revenues for its government.

The money is often funnelled to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), the personal army of Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, which also controls much of Iran’s oil industry through a network of front companies.

This is important because the US placed the IRGC on its Foreign Terrorist List on Monday, the first time that the US has done so to a section of a foreign country’s military. The idea was that, given the IRGC’s control of the Iranian economy, it would mean that companies or governments breaking US sanctions on Iran would now be supporting a terrorist group. Given this, it is hard to see how the US can extend sanctions waivers.

Pompeo said: “We’ve been clear about our objective in getting Iran to zero [exports] just as quickly as we possibly can, and will continue to do that.”

In November 2018, when oil sanctions snapped into place, the US granted six-month waivers to China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, India, Greece, Italy, and Turkey, in order to stabilise the global oil market. On Tuesday, Reuters reported that Indian refiners are not ordering Iranian oil for loading in May until they hear about the waivers.

Iran Prepares to go Nuclear

Ready to abandon nuclear deal if needed: Iran‘s Ayatollah Ali Khamenei

Osburn Oracle

April 18, 2019

TEHRAN: Iran‘s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali said Wednesday that his government should be ready to “set aside” the 2015 nuclear deal if it is no longer in the country‘s national interests.

“The JCPOA (nuclear deal) is not the objective, it is only a means,” he said in a meeting with the cabinet, according to his website.

“Naturally, if we reach the conclusion that it is no longer maintaining our national interests, we will put it aside.”

Khamenei said talks should continue with Europe, which is trying to salvage the 2015 agreement despite the withdrawal of the United States.

Iran has argued that US President Donald Trump breached a 1955 treaty with his decision to reimpose the sanctions after withdrawing from a multilateral nuclear accord. But US State Department lawyer Jennifer Newstead told the court in The Hague that it “lacks prima facie jurisdiction to hear Iran‘s claims”.

But he said the Iranian government “must not pin hope on the Europeans for issues such as the JCPOA or the economy”.

“We must examine their promises with scepticism,” he added.

Khamenei reiterated that Iran would not engage in any negotiations with the administration of US President Donald Trump, despite his offer of unconditional talks.

“(The Americans) want to say they can bring anyone, even the Islamic republic, to the negotiating table.

“But as I have previously said in detail, no negotiations with them will take place,” Khamenei said.
