Israel says Hamas curbed Gaza protests after Egyptian warning

GAZA/JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Palestinian protests on the Gaza-Israel border have dropped off dramatically, with Israel on Wednesday pointing to what it said were Egyptian efforts to restore calm after dozens of Palestinians were killed by Israeli gunfire.

Gaza’s dominant Islamist Hamas movement, denying any pressure from neighboring Egypt to scale back the six-week-old demonstrations, said they would continue, even as far smaller numbers of Palestinians gathered in protest tents.
...
Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh made a brief visit on Sunday to Egypt, which also borders Gaza and has sought to broker between the Islamists and Israel.

Israeli Intelligence Minister Israel Katz said an Egyptian intelligence chief, whom he did not name, warned Haniyeh that Cairo “knows and has proof” that Hamas was funding the protests and sending people to the border fence to serve “as living ammunition, women and children instead of shells and rockets”.

The Egyptian official “made unequivocally clear to him (Haniyeh) that if this continues, Israel will respond and take far harsher steps, and Egypt will stand by and will not help,” Katz told Israel Radio in an interview.

“Haniyeh returned to Gaza, Hamas gave an order ... and miraculously, this spontaneous protest by a public that could not handle the situation any more dissipated.”

Interesting how quickly Hamas can end the violence when they choose to.

1. Of course that is what Hamas is doing.

 

And Israel instigates them from their side.

These pawns are true victims of those in power.

2. Hmm....

From same article:

At a news conference at a protest encampment on Wednesday, Palestinian factions, including Hamas and Islamic Jihad, urged people to take part in mass rallies on Friday.

But the start on Thursday of the holy month of Ramadan, when Muslims abstain from eating and drinking during daylight hours, could limit the scale of the demonstrations.

3. Hmmm, interesting how that works backwards in time

to eliminate turnout for the main mass attack originally planned for yesterday.

6. I actually bought that edition of the paper

News article blasts Trump and his brood for opening the Jerusalem embassy and the pandora's box, then the editorial placed the blame almost entirely on Hamas. Talk about a news/opinion firewall.

Just noting the obvious.

10. Your implication is that

people defending Israel are being paid. That's fucking laughable. What is far more transparent is that many on the left are willing to take the word of freaking terrorists over Israel. That's simply disgusting.

13. Go ahead and take the word

of the terrorist hamas. That'll surely get the Palestinians that state. One day people like you will realize it's due to those who tell the Palestinians to keep waiting and committing acts of violence, their state is just around the corner that are the reason for their suffering. They vote in corrupt (abbas) or terrorist (hamas) leaders and expect to get what they want. I have lost all sympathy for people who do nothing but shoot themselves in the foot and don't realize they don't have to power or the support to get what they're looking for so they better sit down and deal. Or they can keep suffering. Whatever.

idea what that refers to. We're talking about a people that take mentally deficient people and strap suicide vests onto them. Also on young rape victims so they can die "honorably". That's who you're defending. Knock yourself out while I puke some more.

to be perfectly content watching the Palestinians continue to suffer under the leadership that have proven, over 70 years, they don't give a crap about their people. It's the one that absolves them of all blame for their condition.

of conversation. If you're going to use hyperbolic bullshit, be prepared to be called out on it. You should know that the last time I called Bibi's behavior and treatment of the Palestinians beneath that of Israeli ideals, I was called a racist by the supporters of the Palestinians.

33. And some things don't change

Like the fact that throughout Jewish history there always comes a time when things are bad that the Jews are the scapegoats. My own country turned away 900 Jews on the St. Louis and sent them back to the nazis - 900 JEWS SENT AWAY BY THE US GOVERNMENT. THAT'S what happens when there isn't a Jewish country to flee to.

17. Projection, Othering, Guilt by Association

Do I need to list other propaganda techniques you are endorsing?

The IDF is explicitly implying that children and the disabled can be killed without consequence. Do you support that conclusion?

But I'm sure you already know that.
