Yesterday, Tel Aviv stood under rocket fire, today it’s Israel’s capital city Jerusalem. The terror organization Hamas has garnered much applause for its actions from influential circles. Thus, today, Egyptian prime minister Hischam Kandil (in right picture left of Hamas leader Hanija) visited his like-minded compatriots in the Gaza Strip and declared those Palestinian who had died in jihad against Israel as “martyrs.”
The Die Welt news ticker reported this afternoon:
3:49 p.m.: Airstrike alarm in Jerusalem
4:06 p.m.: Rockets in the metropolitan area of Jerusalem
4:15 p.m.: Rockets strike an unhabited area
The high visit of Egyptian prime minister Hischam Kandil has stirred the mood very well in the Gaza Strip. The Financial Times Deutschland reports about the gestures of brotherhood between the envoys of the Muslim Brotherhood and their militant branch Hamas:
At a press conference together with Ismail Hanija, the governing head of the radical islamic Hamas movement, he said, Egypt stands steadfast on the side on the Palestinians. He called the victims of the Israeli attacks “martyrs.”
After the Friday prayers, the masses reveled in death fantasies in front of the Al-Azhar mosque in Cairo, as the Washington Post reports:
“To Gaza, we’re going! Millions of martyrs,” the crowd chanted in front of Cairo’s ancient al-Azhar mosque. One man held American and Israeli flags with the words “Death to Israel” and “Death to America” scrawled on them.
Our own Merkel, however, believes the Egyptians could make sure the Hamas calms down and stops shooting rockets at Israel…
Teheran and Turkey declare – not like anything else would be expected – their solidarity with the Hamas terrorists. Yet another from the Die Welt live ticker:
3:08 p.m.: Turkey: “on the side of the people in Gaza”
2:52 p.m: Iran: “Death for Israel, death for America”
The Turks, who shoot back right away when a shot strays into their territory:
9:18 a.m.: Turkey criticizes Israel’s attacks
In Germany, we have come so far that the Jews must ask the leftist press for fair reporting!
11:58 a.m.: Central Council asks for “fair reporting”
3:40 p.m.: Knobloch bemoans lack of sympathy
The Jews have every reason to be concerned about their image, as much as we understand the press. But noteworthy reports are coming from the US as well. Peanut farmer Jimmy Carter thinks Israel is out to confiscate the territory from the Palestinians.
