On Wednesday November 13th Hamas applauded the cold-blooded murder of a 19-year old IDF soldier Eden Atias, from Nazareth Illit.
“Hamas welcomes the soldier stabbing in Afula. This is a natural response to the crimes committed by Israel against the Palestinian people and proof of the failure of political negotiations.” Ma’ariv:
Gaza’s Hamas terrorist rulers hailed the teen terrorist as a “hero”.
Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhum wrote on his Facebook page.
“Congratulations to the Palestinian West Bank hero who killed an Israeli soldier in Afula this morning,”
“This is a heroic act of resistance showing that all methods of oppression and terror have not and will not succeed in stopping our people from carrying out jihad and resistance.” Here:
An Israeli soldier died after he was stabbed multiple times in the neck Wednesday morning by a Palestinian youth on a bus at the central bus station in Afula. The assailant said that the killing was motivated by revenge, as his cousins had been imprisoned in Israel. Muammar Rawarda was sentenced to three life sentences for murdering two Israelis and for the attempted murder of others, while his brother was sentenced to 12 years for various murder attempts, Ma’ariv said.
Muammar Rawarda was released after eight years in prison, as part of the swap for captured IDF soldier Gilad Shalit. Here:
As Hamas applauded, Israeli President Shimon Peres condemned the attack.
“We are appalled at this brutal murder. Every soul in Israel is an entire world in our hearts. I am confident that the government will do everything in its power to ensure events like this never happen again.”
Really? When is Israel going to release this vermin again to carry on his spree of killing innocent people?
How many more sporting venues, children’s playgrounds etc., are Hamas going to name after killers and terrorists?
Atias enlisted only two weeks ago and was still in basic training. He was travelling to his base. He was exhausted and fell asleep on a bus only to be brutally savaged and stabbed to death by Husain Jawadra, a 16 year old youth from a village in the Jenin area, who was in Israel illegally.
Yes he is fine thanks.
He was taken to Poriah hospital, he was slightly wounded in the confrontation. Poor darling. He gets treated in hospital while the innocent young man, who was harming no one, lies dead at the hands of this sub-human.
“I didn’t see a 16 year old boy, I saw a monster and he didn’t deserve to be walking around like he was” said an eyewitness from the hospital to which the terrorist was taken.
Likud MK Tzipi Hotovely stated to Arutz Sheva that the terror attack
“is another proof that the Palestinian Authority is not willing to negotiate with Israel”,
and that its only motivation is to gain
“international legitimacy for terror attacks.”
We know they don’t want peace. Look at how many times it has been turned down. Even as we speak Abu Mazen is making noises that the so-called settlements are an obstacle to peace and we know that isn’t the case.
“In a final resolution, we would not see the presence of a single Israeli — civilian or soldier — on our lands.”
……………..but he insists that a Jewish State must take Arabs.
In 1948 the Arabs choose to go to war rather than accept the UN’s decision to partition Palestine between its Jewish and Arab populations.
In 1967 Israel offered to relinquish the land it had acquired in exchange for peace with its neighbours, the Arab world’s response issued at a summit in Khartoum, was not one no, but three:
“No peace with Israel, no negotiations with Israel, no recognition of Israel.’’
In 2000 at Camp David the Arabs were offered a sovereign state with shared control of Jerusalem and billions of dollars in compensation for Palestinian refugees. Yasser Arafat refused the offer and returned to launch the deadly terror war known as the Second Intifada.
In 2008 Ehud Olmert offered Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas a peace agreement that would have guaranteed a Palestinian state in virtually all the West Bank, Gaza, and part of Jerusalem. Once again, the Arabs turned down the offer.
That being the case I for one believe that we should claim what is rightly ours which clearly the Mandate for Palestine proves.
The “Mandate for Palestine” is Valid to This Day.
The Mandate survived the demise of the League of Nations. Article 80 of the UN Charter implicitly recognizes the “Mandate for Palestine” of the League of Nations.
This Mandate granted Jews the irrevocable right to settle anywhere in Palestine, the area between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, a right unaltered in international law and valid to this day. Jewish settlements in Judaea and Samaria , Gaza and the whole of Jerusalem are legal.
All of western Palestine, from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea, including the West Bank and Gaza, remains open to Jewish settlement under international law.
“‘A trust’—as in Article 80 of the UN Charter—does not end because the trustee dies … the Jewish right of settlement in the whole of western Palestine—the area west of the Jordan—survived the British withdrawal in 1948. … They are parts of the mandate territory, now legally occupied by Israel with the consent of the Security Council.”
The British Mandate left intact the Jewish right to settle in Judaea, Samaria and the Gaza Strip. Explains Professor Rostow:
“This right is protected by Article 80 of the United Nations Charter, which provides that unless a trusteeship agreement is agreed upon (which was not done for the Palestine Mandate), nothing in the chapter shall be construed in and of itself to alter in any manner the rights whatsoever of any states or any peoples or the terms of existing international instruments to which members of the United Nations may respectively be parties.
“The Mandates of the League of Nations have a special status in international law. They are considered to be trusts, indeed ‘sacred trusts.’
“Under international law, neither Jordan nor the Palestinian Arab ‘people’ of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip have a substantial claim to the sovereign possession of the occupied territories.”
