Does it really have to be even debated on whether Hamas (I would include Fatah as well) is an obstacle to peace?
This shows how morality has been twisted on its head.
Yes, by these people and their Leftist enablers.
As long as we allow Leftists from the various pseudo human rights org to operate with complete immunity from their actions, such ridiculous memes such as the one promoted by Hamas, will actually gain steam.
Hamas is demanding that Britain apologize for the 1917 Balfour Declaration, in which then-UK Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour declared that Britain would support the establishment of a national homeland for the Jewish people in the Land of Israel.
In an official statement to mark 98 years since the declaration, Hamas’ refugee affairs department said the declaration is now null and void, imposing full responsibility for its consequences on Britain, and demanding that it apologize, retract the declaration and admit it was a mistake.
“The path of our people towards freedom, return and liberation goes like the path of other peoples who were under occupation – through struggle by all methods and means, first and foremost an armed struggle,” the statement said, adding that “the Palestinian people” are very close to achieving their objectives and called on international institutions to press Britain to apologize for the Balfour Declaration.
The Palestinian Authority’s Culture Ministry also called on the British government to apologize for the “big crime” of the Balfour Declaration, “compensate the Palestinian people for the years of British and Zionist occupation of Palestine” and help the Palestinians establish a state on all “Palestinian land.”
The demand for a British apology comes a day after a Hamas paper said that the “Al-Quds Intifada” which is what Hamas terms the current terror wave, has “killed” the Balfour Declaration.
A day of rage in a long line of day of rages………..
If Israel existed in a world that didn’t treat it differently than it did any other country (read = no parlance to anti-Semitism) , it would have already routed the Arabs not only on the battlefield but also in world opinion, with these miscreants ending up residing in Jordan, the only real palestinian state in existence.

Hamas is calling for a “Day of Rage” on Friday throughout Judea and Samaria and encouraging rioting and clashes with IDF forces.
In a statement issued by Hamas on Thursday evening, the organization welcomed the “heroic actions” of young Palestinians, saying “the enemy understands only the language of force”.
Meanwhile, the deputy leader of Hamas, Ismail Haniyeh, called on Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas, to rebuild the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) and to act to preserve the “Al-Quds Intifada”, as he calls the current wave of terror.
Speaking to the Hamas newspaper Palestine, Haniyeh said that Abbas should summon a meeting of the PLO’s interim leadership to establish a unity government and prepare for elections.
Haniyeh demanded a discussion on the “Palestinian national strategy” in order to protect the “Al-Quds Intifada” and put an end to any intervention (a hint at the United States’ initiative) which seeks to “stifle” the intifada’s goals.
Palestinian Arab terrorist groups have called for a “Day of Rage” nearly every Friday over the last few weeks.
Israel has continued to face international criticism as it has moved to defend its security forces from being attacked by violent Arab mobs on the Temple Mount compound, even though the riots have been initiated by the Arabs.
They couldn’t care less about breaking international law, no on will ever hold them accountable (except Israel).
These are the same people who toss people off of tall buildings, use their own people as human shields, indoctrinate their youth with hatred for Jews and summarily execute supposed traitors, dragging their bodies through the streets of Gaza.

Hamas is upset with UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon, and are calling on him to resign, and in the process admitted to committing a different act of “unlawful perfidy”, otherwise known as a war crime.
Ban Ki Moon has gone on the record of agreeing with the Israeli timeline on the kidnapping and murder of IDF officer Hadar Goldin in Gaza — that the Hamas attack occurred after the cease fire was in place.
Hamas has now decided they don’t like that timeline, as it makes them guilty of breaking the truce, so they’ve come up with a new narrative.
Hamas now says they attacked, kidnapped (and murdered?) the IDF soldier before the ceasefire was in play.
But they decided to add another detail in their statement, apparently as part of their ongoing psychological warfare against Israel, and in part to try and explain how their narrative works in the real world.
Hamas claims that Israel found the body of their fighter Walid Tawfiq Mas’oud, who participated in the ambush of Goldin, and the IDF confused him with the Israeli soldier, because their Hamas fighter, who participated in the Goldin kidnapping/attack, was wearing an IDF uniform.
While the laws of war are split on whether its acceptable to wear an enemy uniform to move forward or retreat, it is clear to all nations that wearing an enemy uniform during an actual attack constitutes “unlawful perfify” under international law, or in simpler terms, a war crime.
Convention (IV) respecting the Laws and Customs of War on Land and its annex: Regulations concerning the Laws and Customs of War on Land. The Hague, 18 October 1907.
Art. 23. In addition to the prohibitions provided by special Conventions, it is especially forbidden
(f) To make improper use of a flag of truce, of the national flag or of the military insignia and uniform of the enemy, as well as the distinctive badges of the Geneva Convention;
These rockets, like many others during the height of these war crime launches by the islamonazis, fall on themselves, and the casualties resulting from them are dutifully included by the fake media into the overall number of Arabs dead from the fighting.
Gaza-based terrorists fired three rockets towards southern Israel on Thursday evening, all three of which exploded in Gaza.
There were no sirens in the Gaza Belt area, but some locals reported hearing explosions.
A similar incident occurred on Saturday night, when two rockets that werefired from Gaza exploded on the Palestinian side of the border fence.
Saturday’s rocket fire came a day after Hamas called for all able-bodiedArabs to attack IDF soldiers and “settlers” as “legitimate targets” after an Arab infant was killed in an arson attack in the village of Duma in Samaria.
Despite relative quiet in the south ever since the end of Operation Protective Edge last summer, rocket attacks continue periodically.
Several weeks ago, ISIS-linked jihadists in the Gaza Strip threatened to fire rockets at Israel in response to a Hamas crackdown on Salafists in the Islamist-controlled territory.
Over the ”when” to kill Jews.
Remember, it’s just timing of these attacks (and the safeguarding of their rule) that they’re in disagreement with. Reading from the same Islamic texts, they all hate the Jews and want them dead.
The islamonazis are building terror tunnels and arming up with rockets like in times past.
Thanks to the legal (UN approved) weapons blockade of Gaza, they’re not having an easy time with arming up to murder more Jews.
Quite a few reports on these tunnels have been published recently in both Israeli and Hamas media. Some in the Israeli defense establishment have a working assumption that, a year after Operation Protective Edge, it is likely that Hamas already has one or more tunnels crossing the border fence and reaching inside Israel.
The Muslim holy month of Ramadan ended on Friday, signaling the start of Eid al-Fitr celebrations for Gaza’s inhabitants. The faithful fasted from dawn to dusk each day for a month in the heat of June and July, not knowing what the future held for the Gaza Strip.
The members of Hamas did the same. They have received only a few hundred shekels instead of their full salaries for the past four months because of Hamas’s financial hardship. Full salaries are supposed to be paid out this month due to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani’s decision to resume transferring grants from Iran in light of his agreement with the P5+1.
Yet despite the hunger, heat and financial hardship, the hundreds of workers digging tunnels under the Israeli border, inside the Gaza Strip and on the Egyptian border, kept on with their labor. That they worked at a slower pace was not because of the fast. Hundreds of Palestinians, members of Hamas, continued building the network, including new attack tunnels to reach Israel in the next war and smuggling tunnels to Sinai. The problem they have encountered over the past few weeks, causing a slowdown in the pace of digging, is a severe shortage of some of the materials critically important for the tunnel industry.
Calling it “Erdoğan Stadium”……..
Just one more target to hit when they launch rockets from it into Israel.

Turkey is set to build a 20,000-seat stadium to international standards in the Gaza Strip to support sports in Palestine, officials revealed on July 14.
A member of the Higher Council of Youth and Sports in the Gaza Strip, Abd al-Salam Haniyeh, said the Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TİKA) would build the stadium.
“The approval for the stadium’s construction by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is one of the best contributions Turkey has provided to Palestinian sports,” he said.
Haniyeh added the stadium would be named Erdoğan Stadium.
Earlier on July 12, TİKA organized an iftar for 700 Palestinian athletes and donated $225,000 to Palestinian sports institutes, Haniyeh said.
According to data provided by the Palestinian Sports Ministry, a total of 30 sports facilities were destroyed and 32 athletes were killed in the Israeli offensive in Gaza last summer.
If true, it shows an increased concerted effort by the islamonazi caliphate to unseat the Hamas islamonazi regime for not being islamonazi enough (if that’s at all possible).
It also goes to undermine the meme that casts average Muslims as equal victims of jihad: ”ordinary muslims are more likely to be victims of jihad than the non-muslim”. Now we know that other islamonazis are more likely to be killed by them too.
NOTE: It’s all about getting rid of ”apostates” and ”corrupting forces” in Islam, then they’ll turn their gaze in our direction in earnest.
Salafists linked with the Islamic State (ISIS) blew up six Hamas and Islamic Jihad vehicles in simultaneous attacks in Gaza City Sunday morning.
At least two people were wounded.
The ability to stage a coordinated attack in the Hamas stronghold reflects both the capabilities of the jihadists as well as the growing vulnerability of Hamas, whose regime has brought misery, depression and war to the local population.
An ISIS poster was found near one of the vehicles that as exploded.
Israel’s Reshet Bet (Voice of Israel) suggested that terrorists may have used the ISIS poster to frame the Islamists for attacks, which could have been carried only with highly organized support.
The fact that there were not many injuries offers a hint that it might have been Palestinian Authority Fatah terrorists who staged the rare attack with the intent of scaring Hamas but without causing an immediate upheaval.
So much for the “unity” that the Obama so highly applauded earlier this year.
Hamas, which recently has fallen back into Iran’s good graces, is in a serious crisis and has been outlawed in Gaza.
Fatah is no different, but with all the media carrying its water most people are ignorant of that fact.
Yeah, it’s a safe be that they’ll never make peace with the Jewish state.
According to Israel Radio, Osama Hamdan, a member of Hamas based in Lebanon, had explain that while the Islamist organizations found some of the ideas included in the agreement outline to be acceptable, they were not ready to be implemented.
Another Hamas representative, Salah al-Bardawil, further explained that both sides, Hamas and Israel, have not yet formulated final positions and that the application of a final agreement would require the consent of all Palestinian factions at play.
It’s called living with the Hamas.
All the turmoil the hypocritical international community creates over the deaths of four youths on a beach, while UN and NATO forces do the same on a regular basis with no ramifications whatsoever. Israel wrongly takes too much consideration in their deliberating processes over loss of life, but they do so nonetheless because of Jewish ethics, and due to hostile anti-Israel nut-jobs out there who like when civilians are killed so they can blame the Jewish state.
The Israel Defense Forces’ Military Advocate General announced today, June 12, his conclusions regarding a tragic incident from last summer’s Operation Protective Edge, in Gaza:
While the deaths of four young men from the same extended family was a tragic result, it was not the result of negligence or any other criminal action on the part of the Israel Defense Forces. The boys were located in an area that was used exclusively by Hamas terrorists, and specifically where Hamas naval commandos gathered to prepare attacks against Israel; those figures seen via aerial surveillance were reasonably understood to be militants preparing to attack Israel.
IslamoNazis not liking the responsibility of governing the ungovernable.
Let the Islamic State take it all over, then the IDF will be free to carpet bomb their carcasses to kingdom come.
Hamas has threatened to “change the rules of the game” if Israel attacks Hamas’s positions in Gaza again, according to Hamas associated websites and social media feeds.
Over the past 2 weeks, the IDF has attacked Hamas positions in response to the rocket attacks emanating from the Gaza Strip.
ISIS/Gaza Salafists took credit for the attack, with the assumption that the IDF would retaliate against Hamas. Israel holds Hamas responsible for all terror attack emanating from Gaza. ISIS/Gaza wants Hamas to release their cell members, and hopes to pressure Hamas to release them, or at least punish Hamas for not releasing them.
More Alien vs. Predator activity.
I think that the Hamas is dead scared of the Islamic State, and is loathe to admit that the bombings are their doing.
The interior ministry of the Hamas terrorist organization government in Gaza has accused sources in the Palestinian Authority (PA) of being behind a string of bombings that have plagued the coastal enclave in recent weeks.
The Hamas ministry claimed political and security sources in the PA were behind the explosions, and that they had launched the attacks to try and destabilize security in the Hamas terror stronghold, reports Yedioth Aharonoth.
Despite the unity deal signed between Hamas and the PA last April, tensions have remained high between the two rivals, with Fatah and Hamas officials in Gaza, Judea and Samaria becoming targets in mysterious assassination attempts over recent months.
As for the bombings, not only have Hamas training camps and theHamas security headquarters been targeted, but so has been the Gaza home of PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, casting some doubt as to the PA’s role in the attacks.
Despite the accusations against the PA – whose Fatah party members are closely monitored in Gaza – a more likely culprit is the growing number of Salafist-jihadist factions intent on challenging Hamas’s rule.
Indeed, in recent weeks Hamas arrested scores of Salafists in Gaza, claiming that they were involved in the bombings.
Those arrests have accompanied an uptick in tensions between local Salafist groups affiliated with Islamic State (ISIS) and Hamas, and last month led to an ISIS-affiliate in the Sinai Peninsula claiming it launched two “bombs” at Hamas posts in Gaza.

Islamic State mixes it up with its evil twin.
A Salafist or an Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist either was killed or blew himself up in Gaza around noon Tuesday, according to several Twitter reports.
Hamas said the terrorist is the same who is responsible for several recent explosions in Gaza and that weapons were found in his home.
The JewishPress.com reported here earlier today that terrorists claiming to be part of ISIS have given Hamas a 48 hour ultimatum to halt its crackdown on them.
One of Tuesday’s tweets said he was an eyewitness and saw the suicide bomber who detonated his device when Hamas security forces approached to arrest him, but that doesn’t make sense. If he blew himself up, he would have wanted to take several people from Hamas with him, unless he wanted to deny them 72 virgins.
NOTE: No doubt he considers Hamas ”infidels”, so no virgins for them, it was more likely a premature detonation.
Islamic State: ”Hamas weak on Israel and sharia law.”
Islamic State (ISIS) supporters have claimed responsibility for the Grad rocket attack north of Be’er Sheva last week and have issued a 48-hour ultimatum to Hamas to halt its crackdown against them.
The Islamic Jihad originally said it was behind the missile attack, the first beyond the Gaza Belt area since the war against Hamas last summer.
It is not known if the ISIS cells in Gaza are directly linked to the parent organization, but the fact that they have claimed responsibility for the rocket attack indicates they are active are staging a propaganda campaign to attract more recruits.
They have not said what they will do if Hamas does not “withdraw the attacks” against them” in two days, but Hamas clearly is worried.
It has set up checkpoints within Gaza City the past month following several explosions that have been attributed to ISIS cells.
Jihadists blame Hamas for being “soft” on Israel and for not imposing Islamic law on Gaza.
They won’t because economic progress (general welfare of the people) is trumped by their blood lust for murdering Jews and destroying the Jewish state.
Also, no money should be flowing into the Gaza Strip from an UN member state due to UNSCR 1373 which forbids the aiding and abetting of designated terror groups.
Hamas will have to end its rocket fire on southern Israel before Israel ends its blockade on the enclave, German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said Monday during a visit to Gaza.
On Sunday, Steinmeier told reporters in Jerusalem it is essential to Israel’s security to rebuild the destroyed infrastructure and homes in Hamas-ruled Gaza.
During his visit on Monday, the German diplomat noted the importance of improving Gaza’s economy, which he said requires the opening of crossing points by Israel; in other words, lift the blockade around the enclave. But, he said, that is not easily done.
“We need local investments and those from abroad,” he said. “Hence we also need the possibility to export the goods, which are being produced here (in Gaza). This can happen only by opening the borders.”
However, he said bluntly, rocket fire aimed at the Jewish State by Gaza terrorists makes it extremely difficult for anyone to help create economic or other progress.
“But the whole truth is: all this will, under most difficult circumstances, happen only when there is real certainty … that (Gaza) is no longer a launching pad for rockets.”
Steinmeier did not meet with Hamas leaders, who have maintained an iron grip over the region since seizing control and ousting the Palestinian Authority’s leading Fatah faction in 2007.
How else do you think they manage to inculcate / indoctrinate, successfully, one generation after the other, to murder and maim in the path of allah?

Islamist terror group Hamas publicly executed six men using AK-47s outside a mosque in front of hundreds of spectators including children, a report will reveal today.
Hamas, the largest of several Palestinian military Islamist groups, announced the men were ‘collaborators’ who had been sentenced to death in ‘revolutionary courts’.
The hooded men were dragged along the floor to kneel by a wall facing the crowd, then each man was shot in the head individually before being sprayed with bullets fired from an AK-47.
Shocking: The conflict between Israel and Gaza lasted for just over six weeks last summer, during which time a number of ‘collaborators’ were executed unlawfully, according to Amnesty International
NOTE: This is not really news, at least to those of us (and TT readers) who follow these IslamoNazi movements.
What’s even worse, the U.K. the EU and the US are all funding the Hamas in violation of international law. That’s a way bigger story in my opinion. Got that Daily Mail?

British taxpayers are to fund a play sympathising with Palestinian terrorist groups who have murdered civilians and carried out suicide bombings on crowded commuter buses.
Arts Council England is handing over £15,000 to producers of a unashamedly one-sided drama based on accounts from the gunmen and bombers of Hamas and the Al Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade.
The money will fund a UK tour of their play The Siege, telling of a 2002 stand-off when Israeli troops cornered militants in the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem, worshipped as Christ’s birthplace.
The production has already received cash from the British Council and the EU for performances in the Palestinian territories, and the new handout will fund a ten-city UK tour starting in Manchester on May 13.
Jewish leaders last night raised ‘extreme concern’ that the British taxpayer might be funding a play promoting ‘terrorism as legitimate’.
In publicity for the play, Hamas and Al Aqsa Brigade terrorists are merely referred to as ‘fighters’ with no acknowledgement of their cold-blooded murder of civilians.

“We are under Hamas occupation, and if you ask most of us, we would rather be under Israeli occupation… We miss the days when we were able to work inside Israel and make good money. We miss the security and calm Israel provided when it was here.” — S., graduate of an American university, former Hamas sympathizer.
These quotes were collected by Mudar Zarhan, a Jordanian-Palestinian writer and activist at the Gatestone Institute, who used his contacts in the West Bank to secure secret interviews with friends and family members in Gaza. All spoke anonymously because of the understandable fear that if their identities were revealed they would face execution by the ruthless Hamas regime.
What the interviews show is that many of the deaths attributed to Israel during the conflict were in fact caused directly or indirectly by Hamas.
Some were opponents of the regime – often Fatah members – who were shot as “Israeli spies” pour encourager les autres. One – Ayman Taha – was a senior Hamas leader murdered by his own side but supposedly martyred, according to Hamas press release by Israeli air strikes. Others were killed while demonstrating against Hamas on the streets.
It’s the only conclusion one could some to if the investigation was honest.
And also using the gorunds of the Shifa Hospital as a launching site for rockets into Israel, as ”Rocket Girl” attested to, made famous by the Tundra Tabloids’ blog. Later on she (Aishi Zidan) became bitter that the video captured and subtitled by the TT was used to highlight the IslamoNazi Hamas indeed using civilians as human shields. The video has over 300 000 hits.
United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said on Monday he deplores that a UN inquiry found “Israeli actions” killed at least 44 Palestinians and injured some 227 more at UN premises being used as emergency shelters during the 2014 Gaza conflict.
“It is a matter of the utmost gravity that those who looked to them for protection and who sought and were granted shelter there had their hopes and trust denied,” Ban wrote in his cover letter to a UN inquiry report into the incidents.
“I will work with all concerned and spare no effort to ensure that such incidents will never be repeated,” he said.
In his letter Ban also said that Palestinian militant groups had put UN schools in Gaza at risk by hiding weapons in three locations that were not being used as shelters.
“The fact that they were used by those involved in the fighting to store their weaponry and, in two cases, probably to fire from is unacceptable,” Ban said.
