US moves parts of controversial missile defense to South Korea-Plans to deploy Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense system to intercept missiles raise hackles from Pyongyang to Moscow-By KIM TONG-HYUNG March 7, 2017, 10:02 am-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — US missile launchers and other equipment needed to set up a controversial missile defense system have arrived in South Korea, the US and South Korean militaries said Tuesday, a day after North Korea test-launched four ballistic missiles into the ocean near Japan.The plans to deploy the Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense system, or THAAD, within this year have angered not only North Korea, but also China and Russia, which see the system’s powerful radars as a security threat.Washington and Seoul say the system is defensive and not meant to be a threat to Beijing or Moscow.The US military said in a statement that THAAD is meant to intercept and destroy short and medium range ballistic missiles during the last part of their flights.“Continued provocative actions by North Korea, to include yesterday’s launch of multiple missiles, only confirm the prudence of our alliance decision last year to deploy THAAD to South Korea,” Adm. Harry Harris, head of the US Pacific Command, said in the statement.Some South Korean liberal presidential candidates have said that the security benefits of having THAAD would be curtailed by worsened relations with neighbors China and Russia.China’s condemnation of South Korean plans to deploy THAAD has triggered protests against South Korean retail giant, Lotte, which agreed to provide one of its golf courses in southern South Korea as the site of THAAD. The South Korean government also raised worries about a reported ban on Chinese tour groups visiting the country.An official from South Korea’s Defense Ministry, who didn’t want to be named, citing office rules, said that the equipment that arrived in South Korea included launchers, but didn’t confirm how many.While South Korea’s media speculates that the THAAD deployment could be completed by as early as April, the ministry official couldn’t confirm such reports but said the plan was to have the system operational as soon as possible.On Monday, North Korea fired four ballistic missiles in an apparent protest against ongoing US-South Korean military drills that it views as an invasion rehearsal. The missiles flew about 1,000 kilometers (620 miles) on average, three of them landing in waters that Japan claims as its exclusive economic zone, according to South Korean and Japanese officials.The North’s state media on Tuesday said leader Kim Jong Un supervised a ballistic rocket launching drill, a likely reference to the four launches reported by Seoul and Tokyo. Involved in the drills were artillery units tasked with striking “US imperialist aggressor forces in Japan,” according to the Korean Central News Agency.South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said that the missiles fired by the North were believed to be “improved versions” of Scud missiles. South Korean experts say North Korea’s extended-range Scuds and mid-range Rodong missiles are capable of hitting Japan, including US military bases in Okinawa.Kim “ordered the KPA (Korean People’s Army) Strategic Force to keep highly alert as required by the grim situation in which an actual war may break out anytime,” a KCNA dispatch said.
In Gaza, the road to escalation grows shorter-While both Israel and Hamas have an interest in keeping the calm, it remains to be seen if the terror group will withstand internal pressures to make a show of force-By Avi Issacharoff March 4, 2017, 11:42 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
This past week demonstrated yet again, for the umpteenth time, the complexity of the relationship between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip.On the one hand, it has become apparent that the potential for escalation between the sides has only increased in recent days: more rocket fire from Gaza, which drew a sharp response from Israel, which brought a threat from Hamas that it would not take it lying down if Israel attacked again.On the other hand, it is also clear that Israel and Hamas have a common interest in keeping things calm for as long as they can. Israeli officials refrained from attacking targets in Gaza after the latest rocket-fire at Ashkelon, and Hamas arrested members of Salafist groups in Gaza that appear to be linked to the attacks on Israel.While Iyad al-Bazam — a spokesman for Hamas’s interior ministry, which is responsible for the security agencies in Gaza — denied an Asharq al-Awsat report that as many as 550 members of “radical” groups have been arrested, he did say that “Anyone who harms the security and stability of the Gaza Strip will face court-martial.”In other words, Hamas’s message to these groups — and perhaps mainly to Israel — is that it has no intention of allowing the Salafist groups who support Islamic State and its ilk to lead Gaza into war.The problem is that al-Bazam’s statements may not have much backing them up. We can only imagine what will happen if another rocket fired by one of the Salafist groups hits a populated area in Israel, drawing a robust Israeli response. What will Hamas do in that case? Its officials have issued several veiled and not-so-veiled threats over the past several days, the meaning of which is clear: Hamas has no intention of holding back if Israel attacks it following rocket-fire by Salafists. As one Hamas-affiliated website put it: “Rocket for rocket, outpost for outpost, target for target.”The purpose of making such threats, of course, is to deter Israel. The problem is that doing so increases the gamble in which Hamas is engaging. And it requires it to prove, at least to the Palestinian public, that it can back up its threats with action — even if it has no interest in a confrontation with Israel. Hence the conclusion that the road to escalation is becoming shorter.In an optimistic scenario, Hamas will rise above its internal political interests and consider its moves with great care. But this is not what has occurred in the past; when Hamas faced internal difficulties in recent years, it usually chose to extricate itself from them by entering into conflict with Israel.Still, it is possible that the considerable clout wielded by Yahya Sinwar, Hamas’s new leader in Gaza, will enable the group to back down from its threats without being drawn into armed conflict.During his time in Israeli prison, Sinwar, a convicted murderer who many in Israel see as extraordinarily radical, was capable of compromise when the need arose. People who knew him over that 22-year span recall that “Abu Ibrahim” — as he was known — chose on more than one occasion to reach understandings with the prison authorities in order to avoid conflicts he knew he could not win.Sinwar and his associates may understand now, too, that there is little to be gained by waging war. Or not.
ISRAEL SATAN COMES AGAINST
1 CHRONICLES 21:1
1 And Satan stood up against Israel, and provoked David to number Israel.
1 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I (GOD) will shew thee:
2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
3 And I will bless them that bless thee,(ISRAELIS) and curse (DESTROY) him that curseth thee:(DESTROY THEM) and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
11 Behold, all they that were incensed against thee (ISRAEL) shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing;(DESTROYED) and they that strive with thee shall perish.(ISRAEL HATERS WILL BE TOTALLY DESTROYED)
7 Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble;(ISRAEL) but he shall be saved out of it.
1 And at that time shall Michael(ISRAELS WAR ANGEL) stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people:(ISRAEL) and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation(May 14,48) even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro,(WORLD TRAVEL,IMMIGRATION) and knowledge shall be increased.(COMPUTERS,CHIP IMPLANTS ETC)
Army disarms bombs near Gaza fence; cross-border fire reported-IDF says IEDs were meant to attack soldiers working near border; Palestinians say Gazan man injured by tank fire nearby-By Judah Ari Gross March 7, 2017, 12:14 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
Israeli soldiers located and disarmed two improvised explosive devices near the security fence surrounding the northern Gaza Strip on Tuesday, the army said.The Palestinian Islamic Jihad group said that one of its fighters was lightly injured in by an Israeli tank attack at an “observation post” near where the IEDs were found.The Gaza health ministry confirmed that a Palestinian man had been lightly injured by the Israeli military near Jabaliya in the northern Gaza Strip, but it was not clear if this was directly related to the IED incident.A spokesperson for the Israel Defense Forces said the army was aware of the reports and was investigating the claim.The IEDs were placed in an area close to the security fence where Gaza residents are not allowed to enter, but on the Palestinian side of the barrier.It was not immediately clear when the explosives were placed, the army said.The military said the IEDs were “planted in order to attack IDF forces operating on the border.”Once the devices were disarmed, they were removed by the soldiers and handed over to investigators to determine their origin.Earlier in the day, Palestinian media had reported Israeli troops and engineering vehicles operating on the Gaza side of the security fence.Tensions between Israel and terrorist groups in Gaza have been running high as of late, following a number of shooting and rocket attacks from the Strip against Israelis, and retaliatory airstrikes and shellings by the IDF.On Thursday, Israeli troops operating near the Gaza security fence came under fire north of the Strip, in what was the third attack in four days. No soldiers were reported injured, but an army engineering vehicle was hit by gunfire, according to the Israel Defense Forces. The military responded to the attack by striking two Hamas positions in the northern Gaza Strip.That exchange came less than a day after a rocket fired from the coastal enclave struck an open field south of the coastal city of Ashkelon, causing neither injury nor damage. The IDF did not immediately respond to the rocket attack with artillery shelling or airstrikes, as it has done in the past.Last Monday, a rocket was launched from Gaza toward the Sha’ar Hanegev region, striking an open field. Hours later, Israeli Air Force jets bombed multiple targets in the Gaza Strip.
Groups rally in support of Jewish communities across US-‘We have your back,‘ pledges Pennsylvania sheriff, as non-Jews slam countrywide anti-Semitism-By Sue Surkes March 7, 2017, 11:37 am-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
Meetings, vigils and demonstrations were staged in several towns across the United States on Monday to protest a wave of anti-Semitism that has been seen to plague the country since Donald Trump’s election to the presidency.Since the beginning of the year, over 100 Jewish institutions across the country have received bomb threats and Jewish cemeteries in Missouri, Pennsylvania and New York have been vandalized. Last week, in Evansville, Indiana, a bullet was fired into the window of a synagogue classroom that was empty at the time.In Las Vegas, Nevada, on Monday nearly 200 university students and Jewish community leaders staged a solidarity march through the city.They were joined by representatives of university Greek organizations and faith-based groups, according to the Las Vegas Sun.In Los Alamos, New Mexico, more than 100 people attended a candlelit vigil to show support for Jewish communities across the US, the Los Alamos Daily Post reported.Scranton, Pennsylvania, Mayor Bill Courtright met with Jewish community representatives along with county Sheriff Mark McAndrew, senior police officers and city council members, the Scranton Times-Tribune reported.Two JCCs elsewhere in the state were among 23 countrywide to receive bomb threats just a week ago.“We have your back,” County Sheriff Mark McAndrew said, adding that his 102 deputies had never been better trained to handle acts of violence.Scranton JCC director Dan Cardonick told the Times-Tribune that police upped their patrols in the area of the JCC without having been asked.“We’re just appreciative of the response, given all the news nationally, and I didn’t even have to make a phone call,” he said.In Columbus, Ohio, Jews and Muslims were among those attending an interfaith meeting at a local Islamic Center Monday to discuss the nationwide wave of Islamophobia, the ABC6 news site said.
Knesset passes law barring boycott supporters from Israel-Foreign nationals who support boycott of Jewish state or West Bank settlement to be banned; critics charge move will isolate state-By Times of Israel staff March 6, 2017, 11:10 pm
The Knesset passed into law on Monday a bill barring supporters of a boycott on Israel from entering the country.The legislation, advanced by right-wing and centrist coalition lawmakers, prevents foreign nationals who have publicly called for a boycott of the Jewish state or work on behalf of an organization that advocates these measures from entering Israel.The legislation passed its third and final reading with 46 lawmakers voting in favor and 28 voting against it.It was not immediately clear when the ban would take effect.The law also extends to supporters of boycotts of West Bank settlement products, resting on a legal definition of an Israel boycott in a 2011 law that includes all “areas under its control.”It would not apply to foreign nationals who have a residency permit and gives the interior minister leeway to make exceptions. Under the existing law, the interior minister already has the right to bar individuals from entering Israel.The bill was approved in its first reading in November and the second and third readings of the bill were originally scheduled for late January, but were put off until Monday.MK Roy Folkman (Kulanu), who sponsored the bill, said the legislation was necessary in order to protect Israel’s “name and honor.”“It is possible to feel both national pride and also to believe in human rights. It is also possible to defend the name and honor of the State of Israel and this is no embarrassment,” he said, according to a Knesset spokesperson.MK Bezalel Smotrich (Jewish Home), who helped spearhead the bill, said the new law shows that Israel “won’t turn the other cheek” and that it was a “natural” step for any country to take.A spokesperson for Smotrich previously compared the legislation to US President Donald Trump’s controversial travel ban, saying “without going into the policies of the [US] president, every sovereign nation must set its policies in accordance with what is good for it.”Critics of the bill have charged that it silences legitimate political dissent on Israeli policy.Joint (Arab) List head Ayman Odeh said by banning settlement boycott supporters, the bill would end up ensnaring hundreds of Jews in the US and elsewhere who “are not against the country, but against the occupation.”MK Dov Khenin of the Joint List charged that the bill would helping the boycott against Israel by antagonizing critics of the country’s policies and in doing so “isolate itself.”Israel in December for the first time refused entry to a supporter of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign. Isabel Piri, from Malawi, arrived at Ben Gurion International Airport as a tourist, but was refused entry as information available to immigration control showed Piri was active in the World Council of Churches, which supports boycotting products from West Bank settlements.Last week, Israel prevented Human Rights Watch Israel and Palestine Director Omar Shakir from entering the country for the second time in less than a month due to his past pro-BDS activism, but on Monday he was allowed into the country.Marissa Newman contributed to this report.
Israeli slams women’s protest for giving Palestinian bomber top role-Niece of Jerusalem man killed in 1969 supermarket bombing set by Rasmea Odeh says former PFLP member unfit to represent planned International Women’s Strike-By JTA March 6, 2017, 11:46 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
The niece of an Israeli killed in a terrorist attack nearly 50 years ago criticized the planned International Women’s Strike for allowing one of the convicted terrorists in a leadership position.In an op-ed published last week on the Huffington Post website, Terry Joffe Benaryeh said she commends the goal of the strike, a push for women’s equality. The strike is planned for March 8, the official observance of International Women’s Day.“But explain how my family is supposed to reconcile the reality that the woman who stripped my uncle of his life is now deemed a hero by many of my fellow Americans. What justification is there for Rasmea Odeh, a woman who killed two people (with the intention of killing more!) to lead a peaceful fight for human rights?” Benaryeh wrote.Eddie Joffe and Leon Kanner were killed at the Supersol market in Jerusalem on February 21, 1969, when a bomb set by Odeh and an accomplice exploded in the crowded store. Nine people were injured in the blast.Odeh was arrested in March 1969. She was convicted and sentenced by an Israeli military court in 1970 to life in prison for two bombing attacks on behalf of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. She spent 10 years in an Israeli prison before being released in a prisoner exchange with the PFLP in 1980.Odeh confessed to planting the bomb, though in recent years has claimed that the confession was given under torture, which is disputed by Israeli officials.“Explain to me how Odeh, who was a member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), a US-designated terrorist group, was chosen to represent American feminists who seek to peacefully stand up for women’s rights,” Benaryeh wrote. “The Women’s Strike lists as its Principle #1 that ‘Nonviolence is a way of life for courageous people. It is a positive force confronting the forces of injustice and utilizes the righteous indignation and spiritual, emotional, and intellectual capabilities of people as the vital force for change and reconciliation.’ Rasmea Odeh signed her name to this movement. And she did so with blood on her hands.”Odeh, now an associate director at the Arab American Action Network, was found guilty in November 2014 of lying on her application for citizenship to the United States by covering up her conviction and imprisonment for the bombing attacks when she entered the United States in 1995. She applied for citizenship in 2004.In December 2016, a federal judge ordered a new trial, in which Odeh reportedly will be allowed to show she suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder when she was interviewed in Detroit during the citizenship process, a claim that was not introduced in her first trial.
2,100 Iran fighters said killed in Iraq, Syria-Figure doubles earlier death count from November, which only included Syria fighting-By AFP March 7, 2017, 12:05 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
More than 2,000 fighters sent from Iran have been killed in Iraq and Syria, the head of Iran’s veterans’ affairs office said Tuesday.“Some 2,100 martyrs have been martyred so far in Iraq or other places defending the holy mausoleums,” Mohammad Ali Shahidi told the state-run IRNA news agency.Shahidi, who is head of Iran’s Foundation of Martyrs and Veterans Affairs, was speaking at a conference on martyrdom culture in Tehran.The figure was more than double the number he gave in November, which referred only to Syria.Iran is, with Russia, the main military backer of Syrian President Bashar Assad, and also organizes militias fighting the Islamic State group in Iraq.Shahidi did not provide details on the nationalities of those killed.Iran oversees “volunteer” fighters recruited from among its own nationals as well as Shiite communities in neighboring Afghanistan and Pakistan.The families of those killed in battle are given Iranian citizenship under a law passed last May.Tehran refers to the fighters as “defenders of the shrines” — a reference to Shiite holy sites in Iraq and Syria that have been targeted by Sunni extremists.
Top UN staffer in Gaza said elected to Hamas leadership-Muhammad al-Jamassi, UNRWA’s infrastructure chief, reportedly sits on terror group’s political bureau; UNRWA last week suspended teacher accused of senior Hamas role-March 7, 2017, 12:57 am-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
A senior Palestinian employee of a Gaza-based United Nations humanitarian agency was reportedly elected to Hamas’s political bureau, the top governing body of the terrorist organization the rules the Strip.One the 15 members elected to the bureau in February’s internal elections was Muhammad al-Jamassi, a senior engineer employed by UNRWA, the UN agency in charge of Palestinian refugees, according to the Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center.Jamassi has held various positions within Hamas since 2007, including in the group’s public relations department and its affiliated charities, the center said.He currently serves as board chairman for the UNRWA engineering department in central Gaza, and oversees all off the agency’s infrastructure projects in the area.The February 13 vote saw another UNRWA staffer elected to a top leadership position in Hamas.Suhail al-Hindi, a teacher heading the agency’s employee union in Gaza, was suspended by UNRWA after Israel demanded his immediate termination.The claims against al-Hindi were made by COGAT, the Israeli Defense Ministry agency responsible for civilian affairs in the West Bank and Gaza, and the Foreign Ministry.UNRWA initially denied Hindi’s Hamas affiliation, saying in a statement that the agency had “neither uncovered nor received evidence to contradict the staff member’s denial that he was elected to political office.” Its statement quoted Hindi as saying that he has “no relation whatsoever with the issue.”Three days later, however, UNRWA spokesman Chris Gunness announced Hindi was suspended based on “substantial information” it had been provided.He insisted the decision to suspend Hindi pending the outcome of an internal investigation was made independently of Israeli demands.Israel has long claimed that some of UNRWA’s Palestinian employees support terrorist activities and spread anti-Semitism online.Last month, a UN watchdog group released a report showing screenshots from the Facebook pages of 40 UNRWA school employees in Gaza and other parts of the Mideast that it said “incite to Jihadist terrorism and anti-Semitism, including by posting Holocaust-denying videos and pictures celebrating Hitler.”UN Watch said it had petitioned UN chief António Guterres, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, and US envoy to the UN Nikki Haley, urging them “to take action and demand UN and UNRWA condemnation of the incitement, and the immediate termination of the implicated employees.”In 2015, the US gave UNRWA — which provides Palestinian refugees and their descendants with education, health care, and social services — $380 million in funding.Gunness recently told The Times of Israel that UNRWA was aware of the incitement allegations, and was “looking into [them] as part of our ongoing commitment to maintaining the Agency’s neutrality.”In the coming months, Gunness said UNRWA would begin rolling out “compulsory” online social-media training to all of its 30,000 local staff members.
