Not Hamas- Sinai based 'terror group' claims resposibility for student deaths

 Jerusalem Post
The al-Qaida affiliated Sinai-based Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis, which reportedly recently pledged allegiance to The Islamic State, formerly known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), has claimed responsibility for the murder of the three yeshiva students in Judea.

The Egyptian-based group claimed responsibility for the kidnapping and murder of the three boys on its website, stating that “the kidnapping and killing was a victory for the Islamic Caliphate.”

The statement threatened future operations against targets of the Israeli “occupation.”

The claim to have killed the boys could not be independently verified and may turn out to be false.
 All the buzzwords are they - buzzing!  AQ. ISIS.  Jerusalem Post is happy to promote the story even though it is completely unverifiable, makes zero sense and is likely completely false. However, I find the Sinai link very intriguing

It is reported that Israel is amassing troops in what looks to be an impending ground invasion of Gaza

The Israeli military mobilized troops around the Gaza Strip on Thursday- in response to rockets...
Rockets that never injure anyone- How fortuitous for the occupiers.

Israel has already launched 15 airstrikes in Gaza

Overnight, 15 Israeli airstrikes hit sites the military said were associated with Hamas, the Islamic militant group that dominates Gaza; Palestinian health officials said 10 people were wounded, including a pregnant woman and a 65-year-old man.
 "Associated with Hamas" Same bullshit as being associated with AQ. Some people assume that is significant. It isn't. It's just a guilt by association propaganda tactic.
 Stop allowing yourself to be manipulated by this garbage
 An association fallacy is an inductive informal fallacy of the type hasty generalization or red herring which asserts that qualities of one thing are inherently qualities of another, merely by an irrelevant association. The two types are sometimes referred to as guilt by association and honor by association. Association fallacies are a special case of red herring, and can be based on an appeal to emotion.
The reality is Israel is simply terrorizing the humans resident in Gaza.
Though of course some mouthpiece claims otherwise

 “We are moving, and we have moved, forces to serve defensive activities and forward preparations”
 It's nonsense. Plain and simple
But why terrorize the Palestinians in Gaza at this time. Why prepare for a ground invasion at this time?

From Gaza through to Sinai ?

What I do find curious regarding the clearly ridiculous claim of responsibility by this Sinai based group, is how advantageous that is to Israel. Terrorists in the Sinai plays right into Israel's planned theft of Egyptian territory. It's just too convenient. For Israel, that is.

  1. Hi Penny,

    Good that you posted the links so that it is no more necessary to show my cleverness.
    But it is not a waste of time to remind the express statements of the Yinon plan and fear what will happen.

    "Regaining) the Sinai peninsula with its present and potential resources
    is therefore a political priority which is obstructed by the Camp David and the peace agreements".

    "There is no chance that Jordan will continue to exist in its present structure for a long time, and Israel's policy, both in war and in peace, ought to be directed at the liquidation of Jordan under the present regime and the transfer of power to
    the Palestinian majority. Changing the regime east of the river will also cause
    the termination of the problem of the territories densely populated with Arabs west of the

    Israel Shahak, who leaked the plan made a surprising commentary: "The plan follows faithfully the geopolitical ideas current in Germany of 1890-1933, which were swallowed whole by Hitler and the Nazi movement, and determined their aims for East Europe".
    It would be less surprising if we look a little deeper into the present Ukrainian "crisis".

  2. Hmmm...and the kidnappers from Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis apparently speak.
    Hebrew! Imagine that. ;)

    Also from the JP, a leaked distress phone made to the police by one of the kidnapped boys:

    "A voice quickly whispers, “They kidnapped me,” then someone says, “Heads down,” followed by what sounds like gunshots, in the emergency call Gil-Ad Shaer made to police on June 12.

    In the beginning of the recording, Shaer can be heard saying, “They kidnapped me.” Hebrew-language radio can be heard in the background as well as voices speaking in Hebrew telling the three youths to put their heads down followed by what sounds like a burst of gunfire."
