People keep asking me why is #Israel negotiating with #Hamas. While Israel refuses to confirm its negotiating with the terrorist organization the reality on the ground suggests otherwise. Here are my thoughts on the subject.
1. The @netanyahu government doesn’t want another war with Gaza, Unless it will fundamentally change something on the ground. It appears that the leaders don’t believe that change will come from war.
2. All previous attempts to try and not impede on talks between Hamas and the Palestinian Authority have left Israel at the mercy of those talks and have usually ended up in rocket fire at Israel.
6yrs ago #Jerusalem, #IDF Rep:
"we are now located in the SAME building where the Foreign Journalists are,we have close working relationships w/ hundreds of journalists. In addition we launched media project working in many platforms,twitter in Arabic, Russian, French & English."
“#Hamas is not authorized to sign any agreement with #Israel because it has no representative status,” a senior Fatah official in Ramallah told The Jerusalem Post. “The Palestinian Authority is the only legitimate party representing the Palestinians.”
What if we just got #Fatah and #Hamas their own Attaché badges like Edward Tavner on the show, Patriot? We could engrave, “Legitimate Palestinian Representative,” on it instead. 💡
I've absolutely had it with this 24/7 #antisemitism news cycle, which is being weaponised by elements of the Labour party and the mainstream press to undermine the Labour party and its leadership... #TomWatson
If you haven't heard @MikeSegalov on anti-semitism yet, his interviews for the #BBC and Momentum are well worth a listen
As Segalov makes clear, its right to say there are legitimate concerns regarding anti-semitism both across society & within Labour. A fringe element within Labour & most political parties = anti semitic. Also fair to say #antisemitism is being weaponised

A column from me in The @NYPost: in Britain we saw the consequences of Labour's "pas d’ennemis à gauche" (no enemies on the Left) stance; if the Democrats don't start isolating their radicals there's no reason it can't go the same way. nyp.st/2LOdKi7
Jeremy Corbyn became Labour leader "despite a massive smear campaign by Britain’s Zio-establishment", said David Duke, former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan. "It’s a really good ... when people are beginning to recognise Zionist power". thetimes.co.uk/article/former…
Not convinced this from Corbyn in The @Guardian will assuage the doubts. He doubles down on the changes Labour made to the IHRA definition of antisemitism; all about ensuring free speech (to criticise #Israel), you see. theguardian.com/commentisfree/…

His 1st conviction was 4 kicking a policeman in the head when intervened to stop him beating up his girlfriend in the street after night out-Then mortgage fraud
For 1st time since 2014, UN peacekeepers are back on Golan heights - #Syria frontier. As the situation stabilizes further, these posts will be handed over to Syrian government forces. Overnight, Israel was on high alert as #ISIS fighters tried to cross into its territories ==>
2-This is a significant realization by #Israel & others that the earlier foolish policy of arming and supporting militants on its border had to be reversed. It is now clear that without the Syrian State, the void will be filled by uncontrollable cocktail mix of armed groups
3- Significant myth that was promoted by observers was that presence of Syrian State is likely to bring more chaos & instability than other way around. To help this argument, such groups promoted Shia/Sunni discord & argued only way to calm majority Sunni fears was to defeat SAA
When an armed intruder broke into a family’s home, began harming a juvenile inside, homeowner did what he was supposed to do-called 911 & successfully defended his home
However, after he’d successfully fended off the home invader—#US police showed up-killed the innocent homeowner
After Armed Homeowner Defends Family from Home Invader, Aurora, CO Cops Show Up & Kill Him
An armed homeowner successfully defended himself & family against an armed intruder who was harming a child got killed by police when they arrived
#Israeli forces detained @LydiadeLeeuw for questioning immediately after arrival at #BenGurion airport on 20 July
Over four hours, de Leeuw was strip searched, deprived of her phone & other property & denied access to the #Dutch embassy or legal assistance before her deportation
@LydiaDeLeeuw's #Dutch colleague Pauline Overeem experienced much severe treatment. #Israeli forces detained her for 24 hours during which she was “handcuffed & subjected to verbal abuse, including threats that the #Israeli authorities would use force against her”
Here’s how Abbas will get Palestinians killed: He is again claiming something HE KNOWS is utter bull$h*t, this time about Islam’s holiest site in #Jerusalem. His brainwashed population will riot. #Israel will defend itself. Abbas, like #Hamas, has to go. jpost.com/Israel-News/Ab…
Even more cynical is that while Abbas will foment riots in #Jerusalem based on his own lies, he will take US funding to rebuild #Gaza - because from America’s point of view, it’s better to have a corrupt thug ruling Palestinians than it is #Hamas. jpost.com/Breaking-News/…
Even better, Abbas’ PLO discusses severing ties with #Israel as it mulls accepting a US financial handout to strengthen it in #Gaza, while lying to the Palestinian people in the West Bank to spark a riot in #Jerusalem. I think we’ve had enough. jpost.com/Israel-News/PL…
#Israel-i voters endorse #Netanyahu's policies
March, 2015 Bibi said he wouldn't allow the creation of a Palestinian state.
He explicitly stated that the reason creation of settlements is to block #Palestinians access to #Jerusalem & the establishment of a continuous state #BDS
What #Palestinians Think Of #Netanyahu's 'No #Palestine' Statement👇
Benjamin Netanyahu made a promise to never allow a Palestinian state if he was elected. That played well with a significant portion of #Israel-is – but what do Palestinians think about his bold statement? #BDS
If I were in the advice-giving business to Syrian pilots, I’d say “you might want to avoid flying into #Israel’s airspace.” But I’m not in that business so let’s instead play a game of “See what happens when...”
These Red Alert 🚨 sirens in communities on #Israel’s side of the #Golan are likely the result of this nearby fighting in SW #Syria among the gangs who can’t shoot straight.
I appear to be correct in my above tweet as the @IDFSpokesperson response is, "Following reports regarding sirens in the #Golan regional council, a launch was identified from #Syria at Israeli territory. It appears to have been errant fire from the internal fighting in Syria."
