An IAF fighter jet takes off

The Israel Defense Forces attacked and destroyed an Islamic Jihad terrorist cell that had fired four rockets into northern Israel from Syria.

On Friday, Israel eliminated several terrorists in Syria including Mohsan Issa, a senior Syrian colonel along with his aides.

The IDF reported that the cell was “struck 10 to 15 kilometers from the border, in territory under the complete control of the Syrian army,” and that cell “was directed by Iran.”

Israel’s Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon warned “those seeking to do so will know that the IDF and the security system will pursue them until the end.”

Huckabee: Iran nuclear deal will march Israelis ‘to the door of the oven’

Republican presidential candidate invoked the Holocaust in an interview with Breitbart News


President Barack Obama is marching Israelis to “the door of the oven” by agreeing to the Iran nuclear deal, Mike Huckabee said Sunday.

The Republican presidential candidate invoked the Holocaust in an interview with Breitbart News.

“This president’s foreign policy is the most feckless in American history. It is so naive that he would trust the Iranians. By doing so, he will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven,” Huckabee said.

He continued: “This is the most idiotic thing, this Iran deal. It should be rejected by both Democrats and Republicans in Congress and by the American people. I read the whole deal. We gave away the whole store. It’s got to be stopped.”

Asked to elaborate on Huckabee’s “door of the oven” remark, campaign spokeswoman Alice Stewart told CNN that “the comment speaks for itself.”

Huckabee’s campaign highlighted the comment later Sunday on Twitter.

Huckabee and other GOP presidential candidates have pledged to undo the deal, which the United States and five other world powers struck with Iran this month after weeks of negotiations in Vienna.

The United States would lift its economic sanctions in exchange for Tehran curbing its large-scale nuclear capabilities and allowing international inspections.

Obama has defended the deal in news conferences, and Secretary of State John Kerry sparred with Senate Republicans over it during a committee hearing. The White House needs 34 out of 100 senators to support the deal to keep its implementation from being blocked.

Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz compared Huckabee’s comments to questioning whether Obama is an American.

“This rhetoric, while commonplace in today’s Republican presidential primary, has no place in American politics,” she said in a statement. “Cavalier analogies to the Holocaust are unacceptable. Mike Huckabee must apologize to the Jewish community and to the American people for this grossly irresponsible statement.”

By John Bolton, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations


Israel’s effort to destroy Hamas’ underground Gaza Strip infrastructure is about defeating terrorism, yes — but even graver issues are involved.

Hamas’s long record of indiscriminate rocket attacks (over 11,000 since Israel left Gaza in 2005), its suicide bombers and its determination to destroy the Jewish state are all too real.

This is more than ample justification for Israel not just to retaliate against Hamas, but to destroy it.

But in Gaza today, Israel is also battling the existential peril of Iran’s nuclear program.

Despite Hamas’ 2011 refusal to support Assad in Syria, Iran never forgot Hamas’ potential usefulness against “the little Satan”; Tehran and Hamas have resumed their strategic partnership.

By confronting Hamas, Israel is simultaneously also striving against the fear of a new holocaust courtesy of Iranian nuclear weapons.

Removing or at least substantially degrading this mortal threat is the key imperative in Gaza, and could take considerable time to accomplish.

Appreciating this objective requires understanding the interwoven layers of deterrence and military capability involved in Israel’s war on Iran’s nuclear threat.

Of course, a nuclear Iran is not simply Israel’s problem, but America’s as well. Unfortunately, Washington and its allies have abdicated their responsibilities.

President Obama says repeatedly that “all options are on the table,” but no one really believes he’ll ever order military strikes against Iran’s nuclear program, and few think the endless talks with Iran will even slow Tehran’s progress. Israel is the only power that may act.

Yet Iran’s most likely response to an Israeli attack would be to unleash Hamas and Hezbollah against the Israeli civilian population.

A direct Iranian attack on Israel is unlikely, since Tehran wouldn’t want to risk an Israeli nuclear response. Retaliating indirectly through its terrorist surrogates is safer, while providing an air of plausible deniability.

Other options (closing the Strait of Hormuz; attacking US forces in the region) are highly unlikely, since they’d prompt an American military response, even from Obama.

(Incidentally, an Israeli strike would not prompt a broader Middle East war, because key Arab states also oppose a nuclear Iran.)

Thus the Hamas and Hezbollah arsenals in Gaza and southern Lebanon are crucial.

Most of Hamas’ rockets are short-range and not terribly accurate. If they hit civilian targets, they are of course lethal, but for Hamas their main use is as a weapon of terror.

After the 2006 Hezbollah-Israel war, however, Tehran not only replenished Hezbollah’s more muscular missile stockpiles, but also substantially upgraded Hamas’ assets. Longer-range missiles began appearing in Gaza, smuggled in courtesy of Iran, such as the Fajr-5 and the Khaibar (Syrian-built from Iranian design).

As recently as March, Israel intercepted the Klos-C in the Red Sea carrying Khaibar missiles, mortars and assault-rifle ammunition, which Israel credibly says were Gaza-bound. Although shipping records were counterfeited, Iran was undoubtedly the source.

Thus Iran could order the launching of longer-range, more accurate missiles from both Lebanon and Gaza, substantially increasing the threat to Israel.

Despite Israel’s huge strides in missile defense, especially Iron Dome, such systems can still be defeated by overwhelming them with large numbers of rockets arriving simultaneously on a given target, especially if they’re launched from two disparate locations.

Iran fully understands the deterrent effect these missiles have on any Israeli government contemplating a pre-emptive strike. The Khaibar’s range of about 200 miles means it can strike Israel’s port of Haifa from Gaza.

With its 50-mile range, the Fajr-5 can hit Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Israel’s Dimona nuclear reactor. (Missile ranges rise or fall depending on the weight of the weapons payload being carried.)

Israel needs to feel confident it can successfully attack Iran’s nuclear program without risking unacceptable civilian losses when Tehran retaliates via Hamas and Hezbollah.

Thus, Israel should destroy Hamas’ missile capabilities now, as well as any unmanned aerial vehicles in Gaza that might disperse biological or chemical weapons.

Ideally, Israel would do the same to Hezbollah — which helps explain why Hezbollah has held back during the current hostilities.

But there is little doubt that Iran and Hamas desperately hope John Kerry or others will manage to impose a cease-fire in Gaza before their stocks of long-range missiles are uncovered and destroyed.

This is why it is so important that Israel continue its Gaza operations for as long as it deems necessary, precisely to destroy those missiles.

In so doing, Israel is acting not only in its own legitimate self-defense, but in America’s as well.

Happy Purim

Hey, Iranians, Fuck You!

We have a match just for you!

This guy may just be crazy enough to be the next president of Iran. In fact, I’ll bet he’s just as crazy as Ayatollah Khomeini, Iran’s chief cleric and international terrorist.

However, Mr. Haji only smokes animal feces while the Ayatollah smokes boners. This puts Mr. Haji one up on “Bone-Slurp” Khomeini.

From dailymail.co.uk:

The world’s most ineligible bachelor: Iranian hasn’t bathed for 60 years, smokes animal feces, and he can whip up a mean decomposed porcupine for dinner!

– Amou Haji, 80, chose this way of life after some ’emotional setbacks’
– The 80-year-old now lives in a hole near a village in southern Iran
– He doesn’t wash, because he believes being clean will make him sick

But he’s single and looking for love.

To win his heart, you’d have to accept his rather unconventional lifestyle.

Amou Haji has not bathed for 60 years because he believes being clean will make him sick, and his favorite food is rotten porcupine.

To relax he likes to sit down and have a smoke from a pipe packed with animal feces.

Mr Haji, 80, says he chose this way of life after going through some emotional setbacks in his youth and since then—perhaps unsurprisingly—he has become a bit isolated.

His home is in Dejgah village in the southern province of Fars in Iran where, once, a group of young men offered to give him a shower—but luckily he managed to escape.

At night he either sleeps in a hole in the ground, which is quite like a grave, or in an open brick shack which concerned locals built for him.

Young, single, looking for love? But Mr Haji also believes being clean will make him sick

Nice aroma: Mr Haji’s smoking pipe is filled with animal feces instead of tobacco

Amou amour: Mr Haj's home is in Dejgah village in the southern province of Fars in Iran where, once, a group of young men offered to give him a shower - but he managed to escape

As well as cleanliness, Mr Haji also has an aversion to clean food and drink. He much prefers the rotten meat of dead animals and five liters of water a day from a rusty oil can.

But don’t think Mr Haji doesn’t look after himself—when he wants to look his best he uses car mirrors for grooming, The Tehran Times reported.

And, when he needs a haircut, he simply burns his locks in a fire.

As for clothing, he wears rags and, in the winter, a war helmet to ward off the cold .

The last record of longest time going without showers belonged to a 66-year-old Indian man, Kailash Singh, who had not taken a bath over 38 years.

Mr Haji claims to have beaten that.
