Curious what facts MSM is not reporting about today's planned tantrum in #Gaza that Palestinians call the #GazaReturnMarch? Look no further and unwind this thread 👇 #Israel
These planned riots on the border between #Israel and #Gaza have been taking place for 6+ weeks and expected to culminate on May 15th (tomorrow), to coincide with the Palestinian “Nakba” day.
#GazaReturnMarch is of course named after the so-called "right of return" of 5 - 7 million refugees and their offspring because Palestinians are invested in the mythology that they flood and strangle #Israel, a country of 8 million. Keep dreaming.
#Hamas actively encourages rioters to approach the border fence and the terrorist group is reportedly paying $100 per person to attend these riots. That's good money that could be used to improve their lives rather than be used as cannon fodder.
During the riots, Molotov cocktails have been thrown, the fence has been attacked, flaming kites with the intent to burn Israeli fields and livestock have been flown and mechanical catapults have been used to launch rocks across the border. Sounds peaceful. 🤨
Over 4,000 Israelis live within 3km (<2 miles) of the border fence with #Gaza. Hamas posted maps showing the route & distance to the nearest Israeli villages & towns encouraging rioters to break through the fence & attack, telling Israelis that the attackers “will not die alone”.
In recent weeks, rioters have ransacked the humanitarian crossing between #Israel and #Gaza forcing it to temporarily close for emergency repairs to be carried out. That's right; they hurt themselves.
For example, here's details of the damage at the Kerem Shalom humanitarian crossing: Gas pipelines, fuel terminal & pipes, conveyor belts for grain and delivering food and livestock, and security infrastructure at the humanitarian crossing - all out of commission, not working.
This #Hamas media stunt makes abundantly clear that the terror group has no regard whatsoever for the lives and welfare of the people of #Gaza whom they rule. They only care about damaging #Israel, Israeli infrastructure and the “world opinion” of Israel. But it gains nothing.
In the past 24 hours, rioters were caught placing explosive devices along the border fence with the express intention of breaking through to cause harm to Israeli civilians.
#Hamas recently released a video (…) warning #Israel that they should leave the land as “the #Palestinians will storm the border and break through” and that “a kite is only the tip of the iceberg”.
The target of these rioters that MSM calls a "peaceful protest" is the population and civilians of #Israel, and this is not even the targeting of military or political infrastructure. They want to kill civilians. What country would allow that to happen? (#Syria excluded 🤔)
This morning Israel dropped leaflets over #Gaza warning them to stay away and not listen to #Hamas. #Israel has continued to act within the strict confines of the international rules of engagement, many times going above and beyond the “minimum requirements”.
Every country has the right to protect its border. The border fence is the internationally recognized line between #Israel and #Gaza since Israel’s withdrawal in 2005. This is what they do when given land and the opportunity to rule themselves.
In contrast to planned #Hamas riots, today’s demonstrations in the West Bank were mostly peaceful with few if any injuries. Any deaths in #Gaza are the fault of #Hamas who are encouraging violence.
I have actually seen videos that I cannot share that show all of this that is not being reported on MSM. Most of it is publicly available however. But it would require a google search and that is apparently above MSM reporters job descriptions.
In sum, 40,000 Palestinians partook in violent riots in 13 locations along the #Gaza Strip security fence today.
They hurled firebombs & explosive devices at the fence & IDF troops, they burned tires, threw rocks & launched flaming objects with the intention of igniting fires in Israeli territory & harming IDF troops. IT WAS NOT A GRASSROOTS PEACEFUL PROTEST {the end}
P.S. I discussed this and the embassy moving to #Jerusalem today with @drdrew on Midday Live with @LaurenSivan and it's available here:…
I discussed this here:
The #Jerusalem Fiction
Here’s how even the so-called “moderates” in the #Palestinian Authority & #Fatah (not #Hamas in #Gaza who use the population as human shields when not using them as cannon fodder) prefers mythology over peace, from @FDRLST:…

This is what a #Hamas ceasefire looks like 👇🏼
#BREAKING: In response to over 36 rockets launched from #Hamas-controlled #Gaza, #Israel responded with air strikes. This press release describes what happened. 👇🏼
#BREAKING: At this point some 70 projectiles have been fired from #Hamas-controlled #Gaza today.

Interestingly, #Hamas is right about #Fatah’s intentions.…
#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. 💡

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.…
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.…
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.…

Because THIS guy draws another false equivalence between the torrent of lies he spun selling the #IranDeal and Trump’s meetings that resulted in nothing similar, I’m compelled to call him out in vivid detail as I did in 2015 with this thread for the record 👇🏼
You can follow along with the article I wrote in @TimesofIsrael in 2015, "Framework Iran’ Sequel Leaves Audiences and Critics Confused" in which I demonstrate that at nearly every turn, #Iran's version of the deal was accurate and the White House lied.…
We should recall that in 2015, there was a sizable disagreement between the garbage Ben Rhode's and his #EchoChamber were selling, what Europe was saying, and what #Iran said happened.

Exactly. The issue for #Israel is #Iran in #Syria, not the distance from its borders. Iran has precision guided munitions and ballistic missiles that can strike Israel from anywhere in Syria.…
This would be akin to the Soviet Union offering to move it's nuclear weapons from Cuba to Jamaica. It's a non-starter.
To understand #Israel's logic regarding #Iran's military position in #Syria, read the report I co-authored with @JSchanzer and @AcrossTheBay of @FDD, "Controlled Chaos"…
