Enmity Grows Between Trump, Military Over Vaccine Advocacy … What’s Going On? What’s At Stake?

By Adina Kutnicki

SANS a scintilla of a doubt, President Trump was the most effective POTUS in modern history. But, like all fallible mortals, he has an Achilles heel.

NOT being a psychiatrist, it is still safe to “diagnose”: admitting he was duped is a bridge too far for the prideful leader.

BY now, rational folks should agree (despite ideological bent) that his decision to shut the borders to China from the onset (proven to be a CHI-COM-Fauci designed gain-of-function unleashing) and at warp-speed, no less, was spot on.

NEVERTHELESS, the fact that he chose Dr. Death to be the voice of all things covid-related, attests and supports the conviction that his warp-speed decision-making was a mega disaster. Inexorably, the negative results from pushing this maximum speed game-plan, without proper due diligence, underlies the confusion (and anger) from his millions-strong base. Inexplicably, he continued to keep Fauci on as point person, even after all of his so-called advice was a net zero result. Instead, he should have said: You’re fired!!

AND not meaning to harp on and belabor the obvious, his thrust for a vax in absolute warp speed exposes several key fissures, most especially, the following:

  • Never and never has a vaccine been developed in a few short months. It just doesn’t happen. As such, other than rightfully pushing, yes, at warp-speed, for various therapeutics to fill in the gap — that is, until further exploration re this and that was exhausted — the POTUS should have been more cautious, as opposed to charging full steam ahead! This approach is not rocket science. After all, sometimes, slow and steady wins the race.
  • Alongside the above, as a mega successful CEO before entering the (heretofore) People’s House, he should have tasked his most trusted aide(s) to thoroughly vet Fauci, six ways to Sunday, rather than relying on his entrenched bureaucratic position. Resultant, can anyone imagine how many closets filled with pharma-CHI-COM-tied skeletons would have fallen out??

IT is in this respect that today’s RRN posting should be interpreted and understood. As such, if President Trump doesn’t want to lose his base, as well as his credibility, he must, post haste, correct the record, that is, fully and with humility: yes, mistakes were made! This must include his position re the so-called effectiveness of the mRNA vax, as well as fully addressing the ever-growing compendium of evidence re associated deaths and very harsh adverse events.

IN light of the above, let’s turn our attention to the below “warning shots” from the so-called “white hats” and surrounding forces.

ALAS, let’s all hope (and pray) that the most patriotic “can-do” POTUS is able to push aside what amounts to as false pride, indeed, a lethal enemy!

REAL RAW NEWS | By Michael Baxter | Jan. 14, 2022

An impassible chasm now separates Donald J. Trump from the high-ranking “White Hat” military commanders who not long ago pledged to support his war on the Deep State in hopes of restoring American prosperity to patriotic citizens. Although still pursuing, capturing, and incarcerating Deep State players, the military has reached a breaking point with Trump over his glowing endorsement for vaccinations and booster shots.

As reported previously, Trump last month irritated a MAGA crowd in Dallas when he urged supporters to get vaccines and boosters, saying he had been boosted and that Covid-19 vaccines had saved tens of millions of lives. He then butt-heads with conservative commentator Candace Owens, who challenged his position on vaccine safety and efficacy. Trump claimed without evidence that hospitals are overwhelmed with unvaccinated patients, and he alleged that persons who had received vaccines and boosters “do not get sick.” His amorous adulation for Operation Warp Speed and the vaccines earned him a telephone call from the man who was his key military ally, Marine Corps General David H. Berger. He asked the 45th president to dampen the vaccine rhetoric.

More recently, Trump’s ambivalence on who should get vaccinated and when has put MAGAs in a quandary, as they are uncertain where he stands.  In a Wednesday NPR interview, Trump hyped vaccinations: “The vaccines, I recommend taking them. Many people recommend them. And I think that’s very important. Personally, I feel very comfortable having taken them. I’ve had absolutely no reverberation.” The next day he said he didn’t understand why anyone who has had and recovered from Covid-19, and presumably has antibodies, would get vaccinated.

His seesawing has now expanded the divide between him and the U.S. military.

“He’s sending mixed messages that damage his credibility. No one wants to impugn his character, but Trump must deliver a clear and consistent message. He’s either for vaccines and boosters, or against them. We have a right to know, and so does his base,” said Marine Corps Captain Thomas Wheeler, who serves under Gen. Berger.

A second influential military source, this one wishing to remain anonymous, ascribed Trump’s vaccine advocacy to his ego.

“Donald Trump has a lot of pride and doesn’t like to admit failure. He got tricked into launching Operation Warp Speed and rushing dangerous vaccines to market. Look, Trump has done a lot for this country, that’s not in question, but he ought to come out and say he was deceived and tell the truth about the thousands and thousands of people getting sick or dead from the vaccination. Omicron isn’t killing anyone, it’s the vaccines. And his reluctance to be forthcoming is damaging our mission and him too,” that source said.

Furthermore, RRN reached out to contacts at the U.S. Navy Judge Admiral General’s Corps.

“Many of the people we prosecuted were convicted, at least in part, because of their Covid crimes—Bill Gates, Andrew Cuomo, and Gavin Newsom come to mind. How can we in good conscience target them if Trump is promoting, even if he’s not in favor of mandates, the vaccines in the media. Saying he opposes mandates isn’t a strong enough statement. He’s either chosen this direction himself, or he’s getting bad advice, and it isn’t coming from us,” said Captain Nathan Brown of JAG’s Criminal Law Division.

Asked what stance JAG will take if Trump continues on course, Captain Brown said, “That’s ultimately not my decision. People higher than me in the chain of command are not pleased and want him to do an about-face. I can say this: Trump activated the Insurrection act, but he’s not Immune to it.”

PURDUE PHARMA: The Crimes of the Sackler Family; The Nexus to FDA Enablers

By Adina Kutnicki

“Tzedek, tzedek, tirdof…Justice, justice, shall you pursue.”
צדק צדק תרדוף – Shoftim (Deuteronomy 16:18-21:9)

“He who becomes compassionate to the cruel will ultimately become cruel to the compassionate.” – Midrash Rabba, Ecclesiastes 7:16

IT is not for nothing that the above Jewish dictums are cited within the “ABOUT” page of this site. Simply put, they are guiding forces.

BUT before today’s unmasking proceeds, it is mandatory due diligence to include what is often referred to as “full disclosure”, that is, when laying down an evidentiary charge-sheet. This time is no different. First things first.

FIRSTLY, otherwise intelligent individuals (albeit, sleepy-heads in the collusive med/pharma/gov’t arena) have been forced to become familiar with the bloody nexus between Big Pharma and government entities. Indeed, non-government enablers swarm around like sharks. As is said, it is hardly their first (deadly) rodeo.

TRAGICALLY, a direct knock-on effect of the global CHI-COM-Fauci virus — a smattering of which is linked herein — should be deemed the awakening; the defining moment into the netherworld of the aforementioned deadly tango.

“Premeditated Manslaughter of Millions of People Coordinated at the Highest Levels” – Naomi Wolf and Dr. Malone Respond to Project Veritas BOMBSHELL (VIDEO)

ONTO the mandated due diligence.

WITHOUT going into too many heartbreaking details, as well as being allergic to reworking the wheel, in a manner of speaking, this is a subject borne out of tragedy — well before covid hit the masses. The point being, had a hyper-awareness of the subject matter at hand been present, that is, the lies often told by Big Pharma, well,

NOW that that is out in the open, let’s segue to a devil which has caused more deaths and untold suffering than this or that covid variant combined, of course, with the experimental mRNA vax in the mix.

ENTER: THE CRIMES OF THE SACKLER FAMILY VIA PURDUE PHARMA!!

Sackler PAIN protesting the Arthur M. Sackler Museum at Harvard last year. (The museum is named after a Sackler family member who did not benefit from the sale of oxycontin. Photo courtesy of Sackler PAIN.

History of the family

Sackler Family Net Worth

AND whereas opioid addiction is nothing new under the sun, it wasn’t until the introduction of oxycontin a/k/a oxy (in 1996) via PURDUE PHARMA that the crisis exploded into epidemic proportions, in America and worldwide. Know this: it is the direct result of willful criminal actions — undertaken by the ‘Sackler Crime Family‘ through mendacious lies, highly aggressive marketing techniques, and aided and abetted by the FDA and related so-called oversight entities. Evil.

ASIDE from this and that article which lends a partial window into some of what went down, once caught, unfathomably, the top bosses tendered a non-apologetic, in-your-face response. It is outlined here. Don’t vomit.

NEXT up is a kinda, sorta admission re their criminal marketing, as evidenced below.

OxyContin maker Purdue Pharma has reached a supposedly $8 billion settlement with the federal government in which it pleads guilty in a criminal investigation over its role in the opioid epidemic, the US Department of Justice announced Wednesday.

As part of the settlement, Purdue will plead guilty to three counts related to its misleading marketing of opioid painkillers and faces a $3.5 billion criminal fine, $2 billion in criminal forfeitures, and a $2.8 billion civil settlement.

Purdue admits it illegally and misleadingly marketed its opioids, including “to more than 100 health care providers whom the company had good reason to believe were diverting opioids” for misuse; illegally paid doctors to prescribe more opioids; and took part in other fraudulent and illegal practices. Purdue says it did all of this between 2007 and at least 2017 — after a separate guilty plea in 2007 forced the company to pay more than $600 million in fines.

But no one — neither the company’s executives nor members of the Sackler family, which owns Purdue — will go to jail or prison as a result of the settlement.

Despite the settlement, it’s unclear how much Purdue will actually pay. The company is in the middle of bankruptcy proceedings, with claims from other people to whom it effectively owes money. The federal government is only one of many entities that Purdue’s holdings will likely be divvied up among.

The Justice Department also threw its support behind a deal that would turn Purdue into a public benefit company overseen by new leadership, with proceeds from OxyContin and other drugs purportedly going to help victims of the opioid crisis. Purdue previously proposed the deal to settle thousands of lawsuits against it, including from local and state governments, over its role in the opioid crisis.

….

ATOP it all, once oxy headed to the FDA for its “seal of approval”, the FDA backed up Purdue’s claims that it was non-addictive and safe, if used properly, even though they knew the bloody truth! In bed.

AS a matter of fact, it was a head honcho at the FDA, Curtis Wright, who slapped the “less addictive” label on this poisonous concoction. And, wouldn’t you know, once his FDA gig was over, he headed to work at Purdue for a more lucrative payday. Pay-for-play.

STILL yet, to really understand how far their criminal practices go back, look no further than to “Uncle Arthur”; Richard Sackler’s dishonest-bent uncle, from whom he learned the tricks of the trade, so to speak.

NOT unlike Mafioso crime families, as far back as the 1950’s, the immoral patriarch of Purdue developed the “art of trickery.” He bribed prestigious medical journals to print fake studies as to this and that drug safety. In turn, said studies were used to push (through very, very aggressive pharma reps) as much of the product as possible to more than willing doctors to “cure” whatever ailment it was being peddled for. Thus, Richard Sackler, the next in line to lead the dangerous, dishonest practices became an A+ student; in what can only be coined a jackal-like family, having mimicked the same playbook developed by his mentor!

BUT the real meat can be found by listening to a beyond jaw-dropping, eye-opening youtube/podcast:

“Dopesick” – The Sackler Family: A Megyn Kelly Show True Crime Special | Ep. 229

MORE than worth the time.

BEYOND all of the deadly lies, rests another seedy underbelly.

THE WHITEWASH. THE LAUNDERING OF REPUTATIONS!

AGAIN, akin to Dons of Mafia-like crime families who always comport themselves Janus-faced — on the one hand, they engage in murderous activities in their “professional” lives, only to turn around and fund this and that “noble” venture, community-wise or outside their borders.— the ‘Sackler Crime Family’ is no different.

AS it happens, in a highly grotesque manner, their “pet” projects are medical endowments at various locations. Can you believe it?? Mind you, while they develop pharma which, knowingly, kills millions upon millions, they pour millions into ventures to “cleanse” their names, at times, their souls.

EVEN more so, as an American-Israeli (since 2008, living in Israel), it is not lost at this end how essential the funding of medical schools (and their appendages) is to the nation’s health and welfare. Not only that, having a significant other whose professional life revolves around cardio-thoracic surgery, there is a deep appreciation for highly skilled docs.

IN this regard, since 1976, one of Israel’s noted medical schools bears the (shameful) name:

The Sackler School of Medicine (in Tel Aviv) 

FOR even before their killer drug spread like a disease, the fact is that PURDUE PHARMA was born in sin. Read: Uncle Arthur!

KNOW this: no family can commit said crimes and escape punishment. Their time will come.

IF necessary, scroll up and refer back to the stated Jewish dictums.

THAT’S a wrap.

Ehud Qimron’s Powerful Letter to the Israeli Ministry of Health … Politicized Medicine Rules The Health Ministry; The Powers That Be!

Professor Ehud Qimron and two members of his team. (Photo internet reproduction)Professor Ehud Qimron and two members of his team. (Photo internet reproduction)

“The truth is that you have burned hundreds of billions of shekels to no avail – for publishing intimidation, for ineffective tests, for destructive lockdowns, and for disrupting the routine of life in the last two years,” reads Professor Ehud Qimron’s open letter to the Israeli Health Ministry.

By Adina Kutnicki

WITHIN a few months of the onset and spread of the CHI-COM-Fauci designed gain-of-function unleashing, this investigative journalist had the inside track. Not so much from regular contacts and sources, but more from a significant other, a cardio-thoracic surgeon. Schooled within the most prestigious medical school in the U.S., and having operated within equally reputable hospitals in Manhattan, NYC, currently, he operates within the top trauma hospital in Israel. It doesn’t get closer to access than that, as per what’s what in the medical-scientific arena.

AS such, when the aforementioned “working group” realized that the so-called treatment of covid was not geared towards the benefit of the individual, let alone, public health, well, their anger became palpable. By the way, more than once, this mostly refined group of docs mentioned that bureaucratic whores are taking over medicine in Israel. No exaggeration. Now, what was said about what is happening in this arena in the U.S. can’t be repeated here!!

IN this regard, several tactics were taken; one of which included legal action against the totally captured Ministry of Health, as well as Israel’s top-level purveyors of what should, rightfully, be considered actual covid misinformation!

ALAS, it came as no surprise to read the below — in so far that a head’s up was given to these ears that it was coming down the pike. Even so, it was imperative to refrain from commenting until it hit via the chosen address, Swiss Policy Research. Trusted not to use this info as a scoop, stayed mum.

BUT never mind. As is said in Israel: Kadima. Yalla.

OH, piggy-backed HERE, too.

YES, the truth shall set us free!

SWISS POLICY RESEARCH | January 10, 2022

Professor Ehud Qimron, head of the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at Tel Aviv University and one of the leading Israeli immunologists, has written an open letter sharply criticizing the Israeli – and indeed global – management of the coronavirus pandemic.

Original letter in HebrewN12 News (January 6, 2022); translated by Google/SPR. See also: Professor Qimron’s prediction from August 2020: “History will judge the hysteria” (INN).

∗∗∗

Ministry of Health, it’s time to admit failure

In the end, the truth will always be revealed, and the truth about the coronavirus policy is beginning to be revealed. When the destructive concepts collapse one by one, there is nothing left but to tell the experts who led the management of the pandemic – we told you so.

Two years late, you finally realize that a respiratory virus cannot be defeated and that any such attempt is doomed to fail. You do not admit it, because you have admitted almost no mistake in the last two years, but in retrospect it is clear that you have failed miserably in almost all of your actions, and even the media is already having a hard time covering your shame.

You refused to admit that the infection comes in waves that fade by themselves, despite years of observations and scientific knowledge. You insisted on attributing every decline of a wave solely to your actions, and so through false propaganda “you overcame the plague.” And again you defeated it, and again and again and again.

You refused to admit that mass testing is ineffective, despite your own contingency plans explicitly stating so (“Pandemic Influenza Health System Preparedness Plan, 2007”, p. 26).

You refused to admit that recovery is more protective than a vaccine, despite previous knowledge and observations showing that non-recovered vaccinated people are more likely to be infected than recovered people. You refused to admit that the vaccinated are contagious despite the observations. Based on this, you hoped to achieve herd immunity by vaccination — and you failed in that as well.

You insisted on ignoring the fact that the disease is dozens of times more dangerous for risk groups and older adults, than for young people who are not in risk groups, despite the knowledge that came from China as early as 2020.

You refused to adopt the “Barrington Declaration”, signed by more than 60,000 scientists and medical professionals, or other common sense programs. You chose to ridicule, slander, distort and discredit them. Instead of the right programs and people, you have chosen professionals who lack relevant training for pandemic management (physicists as chief government advisers, veterinarians, security officers, media personnel, and so on).

You have not set up an effective system for reporting side effects from the vaccines, and reports on side effects have even been deleted from your Facebook page. Doctors avoid linking side effects to the vaccine, lest you persecute them as you did with some of their colleagues. You have ignored many reports of changes in menstrual intensity and menstrual cycle times. You hid data that allows for objective and proper research (for example, you removed the data on passengers at Ben Gurion Airport). Instead, you chose to publish non-objective articles together with senior Pfizer executives on the effectiveness and safety of vaccines.

Irreversible damage to trust

However, from the heights of your hubris, you have also ignored the fact that in the end the truth will be revealed. And it begins to be revealed. The truth is that you have brought the public’s trust in you to an unprecedented low, and you have eroded your status as a source of authority. The truth is that you have burned hundreds of billions of shekels to no avail – for publishing intimidation, for ineffective tests, for destructive lockdowns and for disrupting the routine of life in the last two years.

You have destroyed the education of our children and their future. You made children feel guilty, scared, smoke, drink, get addicted, drop out, and quarrel, as school principals around the country attest. You have harmed livelihoods, the economy, human rights, mental health and physical health.

You slandered colleagues who did not surrender to you, you turned the people against each other, divided society and polarized the discourse. You branded, without any scientific basis, people who chose not to get vaccinated as enemies of the public and as spreaders of disease. You promote, in an unprecedented way, a draconian policy of discrimination, denial of rights and selection of people, including children, for their medical choice. A selection that lacks any epidemiological justification.

When you compare the destructive policies you are pursuing with the sane policies of some other countries — you can clearly see that the destruction you have caused has only added victims beyond the vulnerable to the virus. The economy you ruined, the unemployed you caused, and the children whose education you destroyed — they are the surplus victims as a result of your own actions only.

There is currently no medical emergency, but you have been cultivating such a condition for two years now because of lust for power, budgets and control. The only emergency now is that you still set policies and hold huge budgets for propaganda and psychological engineering instead of directing them to strengthen the health care system.

This emergency must stop!

Professor Udi Qimron, Faculty of Medicine, Tel Aviv University

SCJ Sotomayor Unvaccinated …. What Does The (Radical) Latina Know About The Vax?? When Did She Know It??

By Adina Kutnicki

THE pretense of “lady justice being blind” has long gone. That (Constitutional) ship has sailed. In its place, for the most part, sit judges (whichever court-tier they sit) who adhere to their ideological bent, regardless of the rule of law.

TRAGICALLY, not only is this the case in America but in Israel, too. Incontestably, the twin pillars of western civilization are broken. This is precisely why criminals and terrorists are treated with kid gloves, unlike the harsh treatment afforded to victims! Yes, it be true. In reality, madness is enveloping and gripping the heretofore free world.

BACK to the radical Latina, SCJ Sotamayor.

MAKE no mistake. She is hardly the only elitist who hasn’t been jabbed. Far from it. But since she is the hypocritical and lying subject at hand, let’s leave the others for another time.

SO, clearly, the puffy-faced justice has secrets to hide — which would land mere mortals in a forever state of mandated lock-downs, that is, if she (and her gang of cohorts) has her way, the Constitution be damned!

REAL RAW NEWS | By Michael Baxter | Jan. 12, 2022

As most know, the Supreme Court is currently entertaining arguments as to whether the criminal Biden Administration’s Covid-19 vaccination mandates are lawful and constitutional. Conservative Justices have either withheld an opinion or said that both Section 564 of the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and the Constitution of the United States prohibit a government body from compelling a citizen to undergo medical treatment. Covid-19 vaccinations are analogous to medical care, SCJ Brett Kavanaugh has said. On the other hand, the Court’s liberal quartet has preached the opposite, saying that the Biden administration has a duty and responsibility to protect American lives through vigorously enforced mandates.

The most vociferous proponent of mandates is Sonia Sotomayor, an Obama appointee who last week falsely claimed that 100,000 American children are currently hospitalized with Covid-19. Her claim was so outrageously specious that even her MSM and CDC allies were quick to refute it.

But it is not the first time Sotomayor misused her platform. Whereas a SCJ’s function is to unbiasedly interpret the law, Sotomayor often subverts it by infusing a noxious mixture of opinion and attitude into her judicial rulings. Prior to receiving ethics complaints, she promoted social justice reform and medical mandates on her now vacuous Twitter account.

Worse, she’s the worst kind of hypocrite.

Unlike her colleagues, Sotomayor, who has said she’s been vaccinated and boosted, is not hearing arguments in the courtroom. Rather, she cowers in her office and, double masked, broadcasts her pudgy face over ZOOM into the courtroom. She has said she does this for fear of catching Covid.

The truth, at least according to former law clerks and unpaid interns of Sotomayor’s, is that Sotomayor is unvaccinated and could justifiably be called an anti-vaxxer.

Penny Sampson is a 24-year-old law student who was accepted into the Supreme Court internship program in Spring of 2021, just before it began a moratorium due to the Plandemic. Her responsibilities at the Office of the Clerk included responding to case-related inquiries from attorneys and litigants, both in-person and on the telephone, and assisting the full-time Clerk’s Office employees with a wide variety of tasks, including the processing and maintenance of Court filings and records. The internship also put her in sporadic contact with Sotomayor.

In the Spring of 2021, as millions of gullible citizens stormed vaccination sites, clamoring for clot shots, Ms. Sampson found herself in a curious situation.

“I asked permission to leave the offices early on a Wednesday, so I could get vaccinated, and since I have, well, underlying health issues, I qualified for Phase I distribution. Anyway, I bumped into Justice Sotomayor on my way out. We had two personal conversations before, so I told her I was on my way to get vaccinated. That’s when she gave me a funny look and said something I never would have expected,” Ms. Sampson told Real Raw News.

Sotomayor, she said, cautioned her against getting vaccinated.

“I can’t quote what she said verbatim because we’re talking 18 months ago. The gist of it was that I was young and thin and probably wouldn’t get sick and not need a vaccination. I very politely asked if she’s been vaccinated, and it was my understanding all the Justices were, but she answered aloofly, saying something like I shouldn’t make health decisions based on what someone else does. I told her I had diabetes—it’s an untruth that all people with diabetes are overweight—and she told me I still shouldn’t get vaccinated. She said she was looking out for me, and we parted ways. I had an intuitive feeling she wasn’t vaccinated, and for whatever reason, didn’t want me to get vaccinated, even though I later did,” Ms. Sampson went on.

Intuition and speculation, of course, prove nothing, and we included Ms. Sampson’s story only because it supports the contention of a law clerk whose testimony supplies a more concrete view of Sotomayor’s stance on vaccinations.

Between 2020-2021, Mark Cull, an alias, was one of eight law clerks that had worked under Sotomayor during that period. He asked to remain anonymous fearing that speaking openly might derail potential employment opportunities.

In February 2021, Mr. Cull overheard a telephone conversation between Sotomayor and the Evil One, Barack Hussein Obama. Although Mr. Cull did not hear Obama’s voice, he is certain it was him because Sotomayor kept addressing the caller as “Mr. President” and at the conclusion of the call said, “Give my best to Michelle.”

“Justice Sotomayor was on the phone 20 minutes or so. At one point, she got silent a moment, then said ‘Yes, I’ve been warned already. I’m not taking the vaccine, and neither is my family, and, yes, I’ll be extremely judicious who I advise.’ I was at my desk in the vestibule outside her office, and she probably paid me no mind because I’d had earbuds in my ears with the music off. It was clear to me that something had to be wrong with the vaccine. That’s why I’m still unvaccinated,” Mr. Cull said.

In closing, it’s painfully apparent that Sotomayor, like most devious Democrats, has a public and private face. On one side, she’s advocating that every American citizen get vaccinated; on the other, she’s not only avoiding getting vaccinated herself but also advising her colleagues and family to follow her lead.

NO further commentary warranted, other than: hang them high, and from the nearest scaffolding in a public square — regardless of their identity, be they Muslim, Christian, Jewish or some other traitor!! Trust, if they go to trial, a leftist-driven judge will give them a slap on the wrist, despite the gravity towards national security.

ISRAEL NATIONAL NEWS | Jan. 12, 2022

Four Israeli women have been caught transferring information to Iranian intelligence.

The women were initially contacted on Facebook by a man presenting himself as Rambod Namdar, a Jew living in Iran. Later, the conversations moved to WhatsApp.

During the course of their correspondence, the women sent Namdar photos of the US Embassy, the Holon mall, and a Knesset member, in exchange for money.

As part of the ongoing monitoring of the activities and investigations of the suspects, it emerged that they maintained ongoing contacts with an Iranian intelligence source. During the interrogations, extensive evidence was gathered about these connections, and accordingly indictments were filed against several of the suspects.

Despite the suspects’ suspicion that he was an Iranian intelligence official, some of them continued their contact with him, agreed to perform tasks he assigned them, and received money from him.

As part of the connection with Rambod, one suspect was asked to direct her son, who was about to be drafted into the IDF, to serve in the IDF Intelligence Division and in the meantime, and Rambod spoke by phone with her son to give his opinion on his proficiency in the Persian language. It was further revealed that the suspect was instructed by Rambod to gather intelligence about senior members of the defense establishment.

Another suspect worked with Rambod for more than four years and performed tasks assigned to her in exchange for an attempt to get her son into the Intelligence Corps, including facilitating the establishment of a club for Iranians in Beit Shemesh, taking photos of the ballot box during the elections for the 23rd Knesset, attempting to photograph the American embassy in Jerusalem, purchasing electronic devices and installing a hidden camera in a massage room in her home, approaching an MK. entering and transmitting information about the connection between them and more.

A senior Shabak source said that “this is a serious affair, in which an intention to establish a spy network for Iran, which operated within the State of Israel, was exposed and thwarted. In this case, we are witnessing attempts at espionage within Israel, by applying the “innocent” coverage of Israeliness and degenerating into a long-term relationship. This is despite the suspects’ suspicion that this was an Iranian intelligence source, and in view of their choice to continue the relationship with him and even perform tasks for him.”

“In their serious acts, those involved endangered themselves, their family members and innocent Israeli citizens, whose details were passed on to Iranian intelligence, in addition to passing on information on Israeli and American targets in Israel in a way that could be used for terrorist purposes,” the senior official added.

UP until a few years ago, the Zuckster “walked on water”, or so it would seem. In fact, it appeared as if everything he touched turned to gold — not just wealth-wise, but in the court of public opinion. No longer. And while what has become the Golem of social media, be it FB or its “new” incarnation, META, it is still the case that the so-called brainchild of FB is laughing all the way to the bank. Even so, times-are-a-changin’. It is not for nothing.

AS such, let’s take a walk-back to 2014 — to a time when this investigative journalist (in tandem with a most awesome co-author, Joe Newby) became convinced of the necessity for what became an epic and Herculean undertaking, completed in the summer of 2016.

wap-Kutnicki-Newby-BANNED-v3

INDEED, it was the first deep-dive book of its kind — in so far that no one dared to lay bare what, until then, had been verboten: the prying loose of a mega-sized pandora’s box of dirty secrets and trails which underpinned FB and its rattling skeletons!

ALAS, it was from the evidentiary proofs within the aforementioned trailblazer that a series of articles developed; that which both Israel National News and other well-respected, non-intimidated news sites piggybacked onto. See here, here, here and so on ….

NOT only that, since then, a recent knock-on effect has taken place, but it must be kept close to this vest. Regardless, its reverberations will be felt, sooner than later.

AND another thing: while the basis for the below at the New York Post is spot-on, that is, “Facebook aided and abetted an act of domestic terrorism,” Underwood Jacobs wrote in the legal filing…”, know that BANNED exposed both militant Islamic jihadists, as well as the linkages to anti-American domestic terrorists who are free to meet, greet, plot, and to otherwise share this and that recipe.

HOWEVER, with all due respect to the below writer, the “boogaloo movement” was mis-characterized.

AS it happens, the following excerpt can be found within this investigative journalist’s site:

“While a Google search of  the Boogaloo movement would have you believe the group is comprised of “far right,” “white supremacist” Trump supporters, the Boogaloo Bois are actually a far-left group aligned with Black Lives Matter in their disdain for Trump and Republicans….”

NOW that that is established, read on.

NEW YORK POST | By Ariel Zilber | Jan. 7, 2022

The family of a security guard who was shot and killed while protecting a federal building in Oakland is suing Facebook because the plan to carry out the shooting was allegedly hatched using the social network.

Angela Underwood Jacobs filed the complaint in California’s Alameda County Superior Court on Wednesday against Facebook’s parent company, Meta Platforms Inc.

On May 29, 2020, her brother, Dave Underwood, was hit with multiple rounds from a gun fired by an alleged anti-government extremist.

Federal prosecutors said former Air Force Sgt. Steven Carrillo shot several rounds at Underwood and his partner as they were manning their posts outside the Ronald V. Dellums Federal Building in Oakland.

Underwood was fatally wounded. His partner survived the shooting.

The feds allege that Carrillo, 32, was linked to the far-right anti-government “boogaloo” movement. Carrillo has pleaded not guilty to murder and attempted murder charges.

The family of the late Dave Underwood, who died by working as a security guard for the Federal Protective Service in Oakland on May 29, 2020, alleges that Facebook "aided and abetted and act of domestic terrorism."
The family of the late Dave Underwood, who died while working as a security guard for the Federal Protective Service in Oakland on May 29, 2020, alleges that Facebook “aided and abetted and act of domestic terrorism.”

In the legal filing, Underwood’s sister alleges that on the day before the shooting, Carrillo posted a video on a Facebook group page showing a crowd attacking two California Highway Patrol officers.

The filmed attack took place as the country was in the grip of widespread demonstrations and rioting just days after the police-involved death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, in Minneapolis.

The lawsuit claims that Facebook’s algorithm enabled Robert Alvin Justus Jr. to receive an invitation to join the group, which was linked to the “boogaloo” movement.

Carrillo and Justus then began to correspond. The two men are alleged to have plotted to drive to Oakland in a van and to target a federal government agent.

Justus has pleaded not guilty to aiding and abetting murder and attempted murder.

Tory Nugent, an attorney representing Underwood’s family, accused Facebook of doing “something far different than simply facilitate a bulletin board.”

“Facebook aided and abetted an act of domestic terrorism,” Underwood Jacobs wrote in the legal filing.

“No one is holding Facebook accountable, and that’s wrong.”

Facebook did not immediately respond to comment.

The company has claimed it has taken action against far-right extremists groups by cracking down on group pages that espouse militant views.

The lawsuit will challenge longstanding protections against the legal liability shield enjoyed by tech companies like Facebook and others.

CDC Whistleblower: “Vaccines Never Meant to Stop Covid-19” …. Clear As A Bell …. A Blessing On His Head! 

By Adina Kutnicki

BY now, it is patently self-evident that the unleashing of the CHI-COM virus (aided and abetted via Fauci’s front-arm, that is, Eco Health Alliance) + the lightening speed release of the experimental mRNA covid vax never had anything to do with “curing” corona or mitigating its effects. Rather, its basis developed as a two-pronged, targeted, years-long collusive plan: worldwide lock-downs aimed towards the “global reset” — the end-point resulting with leadership (elected + non-elected + MSM-DNC media + corporate + big tech power-brokers) and big pharma in the forefront accruing unrestrained power and mega wealth. Yes, this ain’t no conspiracy theory! Evil as that.

TRUTH dare be told, if justice hadn’t been rendered meaningless, Fauci, a/k/a Dr. Death, would be led away in handcuffs and placed on trial; charged with crimes against humanity — not fronting for the CHI-COM-owned Biden regime, in actuality, a criminal syndicate in itself!

STILL yet, it does not mean that righteous individuals should resign themselves held captive, forever and ever. Never and never. Do not despair. All is not lost [emphasis placed].

IN reality, it will take a Herculean-like effort, in tandem with brave whistle-blowers — indeed, a blessing on their heads — to bring down the deep-state; that which will force the rest of the worldwide dominoes to fall in rapid succession.

AND one more thing,

IN this respect,

REAL RAW NEWS | By Michael Baxter | January 11, 2022

“The current Covid-19 vaccinations are no more effective at preventing Covid than Robitussin is a preventing a person from catching the common cold,” were the words spoken to Real Raw News by a former CDC research scientist who in October was fired for questioning agency protocol.

The source, who we’ll call Larry to protect his anonymity, had worked for the Deep State-funded agency for 12 years and was responsible for curating vaccine trial reports that Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson had sent the CDC for analysis and record keeping.

It was clear from the start, he said, that the CDC’s intent was to bury or misrepresent adverse reaction reports while pressuring Trump’s Covid-19 Task Force into believing that clinical trial results, which Big Pharma falsified, showed >95% efficacy at preventing a person from contracting the China virus. Big Pharma collectively injected the clot shot into the arms of 50,000 clinical trial participants; another 47,000 received placebos. Two percent—an alarming number–of the 50,000 developed severe adverse reactions to include myocarditis and pericarditis within 21 days of having received either their first or second jab.

Moreover, 85% of trial participants who got the medication and were intentionally exposed to Sars-Cov2 tested positive for Covid-19 within 4-14 days of having been exposed to the virus. In short, the vaccinations seemed to protect only 15% of recipients.

“The level of deception is shocking. But fact is, we can’t even trust the 15% figure, because with every disease, a segment of the population will have an inherent or natural immunity. We’ve seen this with Smallpox, Polio, and even Ebola. Some people have a biological resistance. It’s entirely possible that 5%, 10%, or even the 15% are immune to Sars-Cov2. It’s important to note that Big Pharma, the CDC, and the NIH pretty much operate as a single entity. They’re all in this together. So, when the CDC got the trial statistics, they had to muddy them. What sane person would risk taking a vaccine that causes sickness and maybe a 15% chance of protecting against an illness with less than a 1% mortality rate,” Larry said.

“The CDC knew early on, from the outbreak in Italy, that Covid-19 did not seriously sicken people who are generally healthy. It just didn’t happen. Some displayed symptoms of influenza or bronchitis, but it was brief and not life-threatening,” Larry added.

Prior to the genesis of Trump’s ill-conceived Operation Warp Speed, members of the CDC, NIH, FDA, and Big Pharma routinely held clandestine meetings to discuss ways of deceiving a potentially wary public to accept a fictitious narrative—get vaccinated or die—devised before vaccine trials had been completed.

He recalled seeing an internal CDC memo dated May 5, 2020. It claimed Phase-3 clinical trials of Moderna’s mRNA-1273 Covid-19 vaccine had irrefutably proven that the product was ~93.7% effective. Our source noted, however, that Moderna hadn’t begun Phase-3 trials until July 27,2020, and which it completed in October of that year. Therefore, the CDC and/or Big Pharma had arbitrarily fabricated the drug’s effectiveness long before clinical trials were finished.

“I believe the memo was widely circulated by mistake, cause it vanished from CDC servers the next day. It’s my opinion that there’s been a collaborative effort to pump that poison into as many people as possible regardless of how effective it is. Right now, the majority of people hospitalized have had one, two, or three shots. There are more vaccinated than unvaccinated in the hospitals. That is telling. The vaccines were never meant to stop Covid-19,” Larry said.

Fully Vaccinated And Boosted AOC Has Covid After Partying in Packed Miami Drag Queen Bar … Ain’t that a gosh-darn shame! [ Delicious VIDEO]

By Adina Kutnicki

NOT to be mean-spirited, heaven forfend, but one has to be able to roll with the vibes and the feel-good national moments, as fleeting as they are, during said unprecedented, western power-grabs. If need be, imagine an image of Imelda Marcos — as she thumbed her haughty nose, a F U finger salute in the process, at her so-called Filipino subjects, the unwashed masses — hoisted by her own petard. Magically delicious.

SIMILARLY, while the champagne-living socialista lives like a queen bee — while her NYC so-called subjects suffer under the boot of dystopian covid mandates and soaring crime, for starters — it behooves all of us to take a moment to laugh until our sides ache! What a comeuppance.

AND for good measure, here’s hoping that she has the absolute harshest form of covid, despite her double-vaxxed and boosted status!

EVIL, thy moniker is “AOC!”

GATEWAY PUNDIT | By Cristina Laila | Jan. 9, 2022

Fully vaccinated *and boosted* Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) has tested positive for Covid, her office announced on Sunday.

“Representative Ocasio-Cortez has received a positive test result for Covid-19. She is experiencing symptoms and recovering at home. The Congresswoman received her booster shot this Fall, and encourages everyone to get their booster and follow all CDC guidance,” AOC’s office said in a statement.

Hypocrite AOC traveled down to Miami to party with her boyfriend last week while her state crumbles under high crime, totalitarian COVID mandates, high unemployment, and loss of jobs.

A maskless AOC was also spotted partying with drag queens.

The champagne Socialist was hugging and kissing the drag queens whilst lecturing the rest of us to “mask up” and “social distance.”

Our enemies keep their focus … The LIES our leaders tell us + Who is REALLY running the show!

ONE can spend all day, more pointedly, until the cows come home, and never be done cataloging the lies that the Bennett regime tells the majority-held citizens of Israel, a/k/a the right-wing. Truth dare be told, they spin more tall-tales than a stadium full of Pinocchio-like characters. In fact, there is little difference between their spinning and that of the Biden regime — and that’s a high threshold to cross! No kidding.

AS such, let’s cease attempting to place lipstick on this duplicitous pig, be it in Israel or in America. Simply, don’t piss on our heads and tell us that it is raining.

IN this regard, a sampling of the laundry list re the aforementioned within Israel can be found below. Keep in mind, it is hardly exhaustive.

THE PROOFS:

MOST perniciously, in answer to the query: who is REALLY running the show, the following illegal putsch by the enemy within removes the mask completely. Yes, and via electricity hook-ups, no less. Not to mention, the continuous coddling of terrorists ala this or that “goodwill gesture!”

BUT never mind. Here comes the highly astute Caroline Glick, as per what’s what in the hotbed of Israeli politics, aside from the fiery geo-political arena.

♦  ♦  ♦  ♦  ♦

ISRAEL NATIONAL NEWS | By Caroline Glick | Jan. 9, 2021

The “quiet” on the northern and southern fronts that Israel’s leaders point to is the result not of Israeli deterrence, as they claim, but deterrence by our enemies. 

(JNS) Something happens almost every day that tells us that Israel’s enemies are preparing for war. On the other hand, Israel’s responses to these events indicate that Israel is not preparing for war.

Three separate events last week exposed this distressing state of affairs.

First, on Monday, Iran and its proxies in the Gaza Strip, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and Yemen marked the second anniversary of the U.S. assassination in Iraq of Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani, commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Quds Force. At a ceremony in Tehran, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi pledged to kill former president Donald Trump and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

Not only did the Biden administration not condemn the Iranian regime for threatening the life of a former president and secretary of state, but on the day Raisi made the threat, President Joe Biden’s nuclear negotiators were in Vienna beginning another round of nuclear talks with Raisi’s emissaries. U.S. officials told reporters ahead of the talks that they expect to close a deal with the Iranians, perhaps a partial one, in the near future.

To go by the reports of the negotiations, a deal means nothing less than complete U.S. capitulation to Iran’s demands. Last week, Britain’s Spectator published a report titled “Inside Joe Biden’s Disastrous Negotiations with Iran.” It described how the Western position has collapsed due to the radical pro-Iranian posture of the U.S. team led by Robert Malley.

British and other negotiators characterized Malley as “the most dovish official we’ve ever seen.”

One official said that Malley bent over backwards so far that “he now speaks to Tehran between his legs.”

Malley, they explained, presented the Iranians with what was supposed to be the U.S.’s final take-it-or-leave-it offer at the opening session of the negotiations. After the stunned Iranians “caught their breath and climbed back onto their chairs, they set about demanding further concessions.”

And it’s all been downhill from there. Iran has made no concessions of any kind. Clearly, under these circumstances the only way that an agreement—even a partial one—can be reached is if the United States abandons the ostensible purpose of the agreement—to prevent Iran from achieving independent military nuclear capabilities.

Israel’s response to the collapse of America’s diplomatic position has been to paper over the oceanic rift between the U.S. position and that of Israel. Prime Minister Naftali Bennett pretended away the problems, saying, “We’re not a teddy bear that just says ‘No.’ We’re not looking for a fight, there could be a good deal [with Iran].”

In short, the U.S. policy is to appease Iran, and Israel’s policy is to appease the United States. But no one is blocking Iran from becoming a nuclear power.

The second event occurred the day after Raisi threatened to murder Trump and Pompeo, and Biden’s negotiators renewed their genuflections to Raisi’s underlings. On Tuesday, Iran’s Lebanese foreign legion, Hezbollah, launched a UAV into Israel. The IDF responded by downing the drone.

On the surface, the drone story is no cause for concern. But it cannot be seen as an isolated event. Over the past several months, infiltrations and probes of Israeli territory by drones, “laborers,” drug smugglers and others from Lebanon have become routine occurrences along the northern border.

Hezbollah, which exercises complete control over the Lebanese side of the border, allows all these infiltrations and directs most of them. There is a method to these actions. Among other things, Hezbollah uses them to probe Israel’s operational readiness, its force structure and deployments, its intelligence capacity, its speed of response and competence.

Hezbollah’s operations at the border, in turn, cannot be seen in isolation from its “Radwan Plan.”

Around a decade ago, Israel discovered that Hezbollah plans to invade the Galilee in the next war, and seize a village or hostages from a village. Hezbollah intends to use the Israelis it kidnaps either as “human shields” for Hezbollah operations or as bargaining chips in extortionate “negotiations.”

Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah publicly unveiled the Radwan Plan in 2015.

The Radwan force, an elite Hezbollah unit with 2,500 soldiers, is charged with invading Israel. Its members are veterans of the wars in Syria and Iraq. Although Hezbollah announced the program years ago, and Israel in 2018 uncovered sophisticated underground tunnels Hezbollah had constructed for transporting forces into Israel, Israel has yet to fortify the border. To date, only 14 kilometers (8.7 miles) of a concrete border wall have been constructed, due to lack of funding for the project. No discussion of preemptive operations to prevent Hezbollah from carrying out the Radwan plan has entered the public arena. And there is no indication that any such operations have taken place.

This brings us to the third event Israel’s foes initiated this past week. Apropos of nothing, last Saturday, Hamas launched two missiles at Tel Aviv. Later, it attacked IDF helicopters with surface-to-air missiles.

Israel’s leaders routinely attribute the “quiet” between Hamas missile and terror onslaughts to Israel’s deterrent strength. But last week, Hamas terror master Ismail Haniyeh dismissed Israel’s claims.

In an interview with Al Jazeera, Haniyeh said that since “Operation Cast Lead” in 2009, Hamas has used every respite between campaigns to upgrade its strategic capabilities. It built its domestic missile production capabilities and smuggled thousands of advanced projectiles from Iran to Gaza between campaigns. It built a subterranean tunnel complex for offensive and defensive capabilities between campaigns. Ahead of Hamas’s most recent offensive against Israel in May, it built operational coordination with Arab Israelis that enabled Hamas to use Arab-Israeli pogromists as an integral component of its assault.

The assessment that the Arab mobs who lynched Jews and burned Jewish cars, homes and businesses in mixed Jewish and Arab cities, and the mobs that blocked major traffic arteries in the Negev and the Galilee, were orchestrated by Hamas moved from suspicion to certainty when the violence ended as soon as Hamas agreed to a ceasefire.

Israel’s response to Hamas’s missile assault on Tel Aviv was deflating. In the interests of “preserving the quiet,” Israel’s retaliatory airstrike was tepid, at best. Indeed, according to IDF officials, the Prime Minister’s Office was so intent on not provoking Hamas with the response that it sacrificed operational security by telling the media the attack plan before the aircraft took off for Gaza. The PMO denied the allegations, but Israel coordinated its response with the Egyptians, who are serving as go-betweens with Hamas.

Israel’s extraordinary efforts not to provoke Hamas with its counterattack lead to the distressing conclusion that the “quiet” between Hamas campaigns isn’t a testament to Israel’s deterrent strength. It’s a testament to Hamas’s deterrent strength.

Israel did initiate one event in recent weeks: Defense Minister Benny Gantz’s meeting with Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas. Like Bennett, Gantz insisted the meeting didn’t mark the start of a new “peace process.” Both men claimed Gantz’s meeting with Abbas at Gantz’s private residence was necessitated by Israel’s national security.

During their meeting, Gantz agreed to give the P.A. hundreds of millions of shekels, which Abbas will use to pay salaries to terrorists and their families. Gantz agreed to permit massive Palestinian Arab building in Area C of Judea and Samaria, which Israel requires to defend its national security and its communities in the areas. And he agreed to permit 10,000 foreign Arabs residing in the Palestinian Authority illegally to receive permanent residency status.

Obviously, taken together and separately, Gantz’s concessions to Abbas do not advance Israel’s security. They impede Israel’s security. Gantz wasn’t trying to augment Israel’s security by meeting with Abbas. He was trying to appease a terror-supporting adversary.

Israel remains more powerful than its enemies, but those enemies are no slouches. They lack armored divisions and air forces, but have compensated for those deficits by building three-pronged forces tailor-made to fight Israel. Their operational components are missiles, terror and unconventional weapons.

The missile threat Israel faces from Iran and its proxies in Lebanon, Syria, Gaza, Yemen and Iraq has no historical or global precedent. Israel has more missiles pointed at it than any nation on earth.

In a future war Israel can expect to absorb thousands of missiles a day from Lebanon, thousands more from Gaza, and more still from Syria, Iraq and Yemen. Enemy arsenals include tens of thousands of precision-guided missiles as well as rockets. While Israel has the most sophisticated missile defense system in the world, that system cannot withstand thousands of rockets a day. Many will get through.

As for terror, Israel will face both grand terror, of the type envisioned by Hezbollah’s Radwan plan, and local terror, from Abbas’s P.A. and from Arab Israelis who are now integrated into Hamas’s force structure. The purpose of terror is to disrupt civilian life, to undermine IDF mobilization and transport of troops to the battlefield, and in extremis, to bring Israel to its knees.

As for unconventional threats, the most ominous one—Iran’s nuclear weapons program—is apparently not operational at this point. Syria, though, has a large arsenal of chemical weapons. Iran and Hezbollah also have considerable offensive cyber capabilities. In recent months, cyberattacks have hamstrung Israeli hospitals and other critical facilities.

IDF commanders routinely declare that Israel is ready for the storm gathering against it, but it is hard to see evidence of that readiness. For decades, David Ben-Gurion’s doctrine of moving the battle to the enemy’s territory was the guiding concept of Israel’s defense doctrine. Today, that offensive doctrine is barely a flicker of memory.

-Israel is not preemptively striking Hezbollah’s and Hamas’s missiles in Lebanon and Gaza.

-It is not killing their terror commanders.

-Arab Israelis who participated in the organized violence against Jews and blocked roads during Hamas’s missile offensive in May have mostly been released from jail.

-Police and military forces are not confiscating the massive quantities of stolen and smuggled weapons that are nearly ubiquitous in Arab Israeli communities.

Lebanon’s economic ruin is of no concern to Hezbollah, which is largely to blame for the penury of the former Paris of the Middle East. Nasrallah and his terror forces remain scope-locked on readying themselves to attack Israel when given the order by Tehran. The same is the case with Hamas, which rules impoverished Gaza with an iron fist.

Israel’s political and military leadership needs to recognize that appeasement is not a strategic doctrine. It is a political move—and for Israel, a very stupid one. Our military and national leaders need to recognize the gravity of the situation and match Israel’s actions, force levels and resources to the dynamic and deadly form of war our enemies have developed to destroy us.

Meet Mansour Abbas’ radical Jewish adviser … Knock-on effect of foxes in the hen-house

IT should go without saying: when a nation is besieged by enemies on all of it borders, yet allows the enemy within to rule from its seat of power, that is, the Knesset, well, crazy is as crazy does. After all, democracy is not a suicide pact.

AGAIN and again, this address has evidenced the efficacy of the above.

THE PROOFS:

BUT on and on the madness goes. שִׁגָעוֹן.

AS such, what else can one expect from Abbas, the mega fox in the hen-house, other than to run endless circles around Israel’s so-called Zionist leaders — including, taking “advice” from a dangerous, radical, anti-Zionist (wac)academic; the likes of whom is of piece with enemies, both outside and inside Israel’s borders!

AND another thing, that is, straight from the mouth of Israel’s real kingmaker, the Muslim Brotherhood connected, Abbas!

JERUSALEM POST | By Ruthie Blum | Jan. 8, 2022

Dr. Yeela Raanan is a virulently anti-Zionist Jewish-Israeli academic.

It’s sad to have to give credit to a member of the Knesset and governing coalition for declaring, in Arabic, that Israel “was born and will remain a Jewish state.”
But the country’s peculiar political reality, in which members of parliament are hostile to that state, requires stretching logic to its limits.
It is thus that I have praised Ra’am (United Arab List) Party leader Mansour Abbas for breaking with the tradition of his Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated peers and former less religious yet equally radical colleagues to place the needs of his constituents above the pernicious aspirations of the anti-Zionist, antisemitic, corrupt Palestinian Authority.
The risk he took by splitting from the Joint (Arab) List bloc and adopting a pragmatic approach has paid off big-time. First, he managed to garner for Ra’am the necessary four mandates to cross the electoral threshold. This led to his being crowned “kingmaker” – the head of the party that ended up tipping the scales to enable the formation of a government after four rounds of inconclusive elections.
Since then, he’s been on a steady roll. No longer a backbencher, he was appointed chairman of the newly created Special Knesset Committee on Arab Affairs. Meanwhile, fellow Ra’am MK Waleed Taha became chairman of the Knesset’s Internal Affairs and Environment Committee on which Ra’am MK Saeed Alharomi had a seat before his death in August.
Abbas has also been successful in his push to increase funding for the Arab sector, plagued by rampant crime and other woes, with a $10 billion allocation included in the recently passed state budget.
ALL OF the above might have been cause for optimism, albeit cautious, if the Ra’am chief hadn’t just picked a virulently anti-Zionist Jewish-Israeli academic to serve as his adviser on unrecognized villages in the Negev. Indeed, if anything casts a shadow on Abbas’s intentions, it’s his selection of Dr. Yeela Raanan for the role.
Her background and behavior are particularly worrisome in view of the passage on Wednesday of the “Electricity Law,” a bill proposed in August by Taha, which will allow more than 130,000 Arab Israelis living in homes built illegally – on land designated as agricultural rather than residential – to be hooked up to the national grid and receive electricity, water and phone lines.
It’s not surprising that Raanan’s appointment hasn’t been announced with any fanfare, to put it mildly. Given the history of the public-policy lecturer at the Sapir Academic College in Sderot, who campaigns at home and abroad on behalf of Palestinian “liberation from Israeli occupation” and in favor of anti-Israel boycotts, sanctions and divestment, she’s not exactly the type of figure whom the so-called “change” government would wish to highlight.
Indeed, had it not been for a tweet about it on Tuesday by Yamina MK Amichai Chikli, the sole politician from Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s Yamina party who’s refusing to toe its newfound left-leaning line, Raanan’s position easily could have gone unnoticed. Thanks to his having called attention to it, at least some right-wing outlets ran the item.
Chikli accompanied his post with a video of Raanan participating in a 2018 event, this one in the northern Arab-Israeli city of Sakhnin, to bolster the Hamas-backed “Great March of Return” demonstrations/riots that were held every Friday for a year and a half along the Gaza border. The protesters demanded the return of all Palestinian “refugees” to lands they claim were stolen from them by Israel in 1948. They were also decrying the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel by the then-US president Donald Trump’s administration.
Raanan can be seen and heard in the clip calling for the erasure of the “fascist regime in Israel” and shouting, “Together, we will liberate Palestine.”
Yes, the “Women Wage Peace” activist whose “skills and expertise” are listed on the site ResearchGate as “gender studies, social and cultural anthropology and feminist theory,” wishes to destroy her country by siding with its openly murderous enemies. Unfortunately for the longtime member of Hadash – Israel’s communist party that morphed into an inclusive far-left, Arab-Jewish alliance – she hasn’t yet made it into the Knesset.
Ironically, Hadash leader Ayman Odeh heads the Joint List that Abbas left in order to have a literal and figurative seat at the table. Odeh was not pleased. It’s hard to imagine that he’d be happy that Abbas poached Raanan by giving her a job.
IT’S EQUALLY difficult to believe that the Palestinians to whom she is so dedicated would support her working as an adviser to Abbas – Mansour, that is, not PA President Mahmoud – someone they strongly condemned for acknowledging that Israel is a Jewish state.
Calling Mansour Abbas’s remarks on the matter “irresponsible [and] consistent with the calls of extremists in Israel to displace the Palestinians and harm the status of the blessed al-Aqsa Mosque and the history of the Palestinian people,” Mahmoud Abbas said that his Israeli namesake is part of a “current that promotes the Zionist colonial project.”
He went on: “It is unfortunate that instead of siding with the rights of his people and condemning the settlements, killings and displacement committed by the occupation and the plans of Israeli extremists to empty Palestinian lands, we see him repeating the lies of the Zionist movement.”
Mahmoud Abbas’s ruling Fatah faction chimed in, as well, referring to Mansour Abbas’s “cheap alignment with the Zionist narrative, which falsely monopolizes the history of Palestine.”
Ditto for Hamas, Raanan’s neighbors on the other side of the border that separates the terrorist-run enclave from the Jewish community in which she resides. The Palestinians, Hamas said, will “remain steadfast on their historical land and refuse to give up an inch of it.”
Raanan neither would nor does consider the above comments from her Palestinian friends as problematic. When running on the Hadash Knesset slate two years ago, she took a little trip to Ramallah.
The occasion was the anniversary of United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) Resolution 181, adopted on November 29, 1947, to approve the division of British Mandatory Palestine into two states, one Jewish and the other Arab. The original “two-state solution” was and still is rejected by the Palestinian leadership and much of the populace that it controls.
Thirty years later, in 1977, the UNGA determined that November 29 would henceforth be observed as International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People.
Raanan took the opportunity to give a speech in which she asserted that “robbery, violence and oppression have become the norm” in Israel. Her audience couldn’t have agreed more.
ANYONE WONDERING how such an ideologue could accept an advisory post with the Israeli Abbas who’s now viewed in the PA as a traitor to the Palestinian cause has to understand that the ongoing game of musical Knesset chairs has been making for altogether strange bedfellows.
But the fact that the Ra’am leader chose this particular person to consult on legitimizing “unrecognized” Bedouin villages in the Negev bodes ill. Perhaps Mansour Abbas’s Israeli critics should focus less on his Islamic ties and pay more attention to the Jews he recruits to do his bidding.

Covid Testing Swabs Tainted with Deadly Bacteria … How Could This Be??

By Adina Kutnicki

WHILE leftists continuously tar truth-tellers as conspiracy theorists, similarly, they are immune to recognizing that too many so-called coincidences are not as they seem. This is so because said admission disrupts their political/ideological narrative. Resultant, truth falls by the wayside. Deadly.

AND when it comes to covid-mania, well, the dangers are as life-threatening as they get. Mind you, not from what has mutated into a viral disease that has to be managed — akin to a host of others throughout the centuries, as admitted by the far-left NY Times, for heavens sake — but from power-hungry worldwide leaders who were “gifted” a tool by the CHI-COMS (with the assistance of Fauci & gang) to control the masses, to this and that end!

WHICH begs the question: is it “accidental or coincidental” that the nemesis of the far-left, the U.S. Military, suddenly, is becoming afflicted with poisonous covid testing swabs? More pointedly, do pigs fly?

REAL RAW NEWS | By Michael Baxter | Jan. 7, 2022

Certain batches of Covid-19 nasal swabs distributed to the U.S. military have been tainted with a deadly bacteria that causes necrotizing fasciitis, a flesh-eating disease that quickly destroys tissue under the skin and often results in death unless IV antibiotics are administered before the onset of necrosis, said Captain Jacob Downing, a medical doctor and infectious disease expert at the Walter Reed Army Institute of Medical Research (WRAIR.)

On December 27, WRAIR received a report that three Airmen stationed at Lackland Airforce Base in San Antonio, Texas, had presented symptoms of necrotizing fasciitis within 72 hours of having been nasal swabbed for Covid-19. Two of the Airmen, Dr. Downing told Real Raw News, were already hospitalized and in intensive care by the time the report reached Walter Reed. One Airman had ulcers, blisters, and black spots on his face, as well as pus oozing from lesions on either side of his nasal cavity.

“The patient first displayed symptoms of a staph infection on December 21, three days after he’d been swabbed for Covid-19. Medical at Lackland gave him oral antibiotics, which proved ineffective. By the 24th, he’d developed acute necrosis and sepsis resulting in organ failure. He was placed in ICU and treated with an aggressive course of wide-spectrum intravenous antibiotics. He now needs a kidney transplant and skin grafts because surgeons at Lackland had to slice off part of his diseased face,” Dr. Downing said.

A second patient’s symptoms were eerily similar. He, too, went into streptococcal toxic shock syndrome within days of getting nasal swabbed. Fortunately, he received IV treatment before his organs began to shut down and his prognosis for survival is excellent, despite some permanent deformity, Dr. Downing said.

The third patient was not so fortunate. He died on the operating table as surgeons desperately fought to stop his liver, kidneys, and lungs from systematically collapsing. For twelve hours, medical staff tried to save his life, but to no avail. The damage, Dr. Downing said after reviewing Lackland’s medical reports, was so extensive and widespread throughout the patient’s body that he never had more than a 5% chance of surviving the infection that ravaged his body.

“There was a direct correlation between the patients’ getting sick and the nasal swabs,” Dr. Downing said. “It was at this point we asked Lackland to cease nasal swabbing and send us the remaining unused swabs. When we got them, what we found was alarming.”

The Covid-19 nasal swab diagnostic test (not a rapid test) is similar to how throat swabs have been used for decades to test for strep.  A sample swabbed from the nose put on a special plate (culture) that enables bacteria to grow in the lab. The specific type of infection is figured out using chemical tests. If bacteria don’t grow, the culture is negative for Covid and the person doesn’t have Covid-19. If, however, the bacteria grow, the patient is deemed Covid positive. The military receives its Covid swabs in hermetically sealed packages labeled “For Covid-19 testing only.”

“Lackland sent us 5,000 sealed swabs. Each was laboratory tested, and of the 5,000, we found that 250 had traces of Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus, a virulent bacterium that resist most contemporary antibiotics. Since bacteria cannot grow in an oxygen-free environment, we tested the packaging itself. The 250 packets contained microscopic punctures that allowed enough oxygen to allow growth,” Dr. Downing said.

“This appears to be deliberate, and we’re efforting to find out by whom,” he said in closing.

George W. Bush Hanged At GITMO ! … Party On …

11_10_George_W_Bush_President

By Adina Kutnicki

TRUTH dare be told, 2022 is starting out like gang-busters and shaping up to be a productive year at GITMO. This is so because “pretty boy Newsom” has just been scheduled to be put to death, Jan. 24, 2022. Happy New Year!

AND since every rabid dog needs to be put down, sooner than later, when it comes to the deep-state, well, there are so many it is impossible to keep score. Even so, that doesn’t mean that each one, once extinguished, doesn’t deserve their own headline and billing. After all, that’s the least a patriot can do.

AS such, the hanging of the none too bright, highly evil Bush Jr. adds immeasurably to the New Year list of treats. But, if in doubt, it is always productive to catch up to speed.

NOW that that is clarified, it is time to sit back and enjoy the hanging! Yes, it is okay to be joyful at the news.

REAL RAW NEWS | By Michael Baxter | Jan. 6, 2022

The tyrannous saga of George W. Bush is finally over.

On Tuesday morning, the 43rd President of the United States stood before an ensemble of military brass loyal to the “White Hat” movement and was hanged by the neck until dead, his lifeless body oscillating in the morning breeze.

His day had begun like so many others before him whose time had come to face the rope. He was awoken at 5:00 a.m. and asked whether he wanted a final meal, or a chance to shave—with a safety razor, of course—before his escort arrived to transport him to GITMO’s southern edge, where gallows awaited his arrival.

“Eat? Shave? What’s the fucking point?” Bush reportedly told GITMO security.

An hour later he, hands cuffed and ankles shackled, was in the rear seat of a Hummer heading to what he must have known would be the spot where his life would end.

At the execution site Rear Adm. Darse E. Crandall and two Marine Corps generals stood near the bottom of the shallow metal staircase that led upward to the grisly apparatus—a length of braided rope affixed to a steel beam, beneath which a soldier wearing neither a nametag nor rank insignia tugged at the rope as if to check its tautness. A Navy physician with a stethoscope around his neck, and a chaplain clutching a King James Bible, flanked Rear Adm. Crandall.

The guards who had driven Bush to the site of his death steered him to the stairs, instructing him to ascend the steps and abide the instructions of the soldier controlling the noose. The soldier slipped Bush’s head into the rope and glanced down at Rear Adm. Crandall.

“George W. Bush, you have been found guilty of murder and treason, and thus have been sentenced to hang for crimes you committed against the nation and its people. Do you wish Last Rites or have any final words?” Rear Adm. Crandall asked Bush.

“So, this is my fucking sendoff? For all I’ve done to protect this country, I got a couple military traitors. Do whatever you fucking have to. We’ll see each other in hell,” Bush said.

“Execute,” Rear Adm. Crandall said to the soldier atop the platform.

Bush’s neck snapped a moment after the trapdoor beneath him had swung open. His corpse undulated a few seconds, and he was lowered to the ground and pronounced dead by the physician. His body was zipped into a polyurethane bag, placed in the bed of another Hummer, and carted off to an unknown location.

“He won’t be the last Bush to face a military tribunal,” Rear Adm. Crandall said to the two Marine generals beside him.

FEMA Forcibly Vaccinates Autistic Children in NY School … FEMA, A Most Dangerous Agency ! EVIL.

By Adina Kutnicki

THE combination of hysteria-mongering school administrators, in league with FEMA goons, is a combustible force-multiplier. Thus, they are the “natural” fit to execute their latest mission: the ganged-up vaccination of autistic children!  Only those with ill intent will argue against that.

SO, it is hardly surprising that FEMA is the Biden regime’s go-to address. Even so, few understand what lies beneath its so-called mission. But for further edification, the following should set the record straight.

AS evidenced, even the wreckage of tornado-stricken Kentucky didn’t stop the agency from adminstering a forceful thrust. As such, once again, it makes total (wicked) sense for FEMA’s goons to descend upon those who are entirely susceptible to their monstrous plans!

EVIL, thy name is FEMA!

REAL RAW NEWS | By Michael Baxter | Jan. 5, 2022

The Rockland Institute for Special Education (RISE), in Spring Valley, New York, caters to “special needs” children, 165 in all according to the facility’s fall 2021 roster, some of whom are between 6-9 years old and have speech impediments preventing them from communicating effectively with other people. On December 23, just prior to the students’ winter break, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and nurses recruited from hospitals to serve the criminal government agency, arrived at RISE to forcibly vaccinate kids without their parents’ consent.

A RISE employee wishing to remain anonymous for fear of reprisal told Real Raw News that 95% of students had received Covid-19 vaccinations prior to FEMA’s arrival. The school’s administrative staff, however, had become paranoid because the parents of the remaining 5% had obtained medical or religious exemptions allowing unvaccinated children to attend classes. Fearing the 5% might be asymptomatic super spreaders, administrators segregated the unvaccinated, isolating them in a maintenance room converted into a makeshift classroom and forcing them to double mask while on school property. They were also tested for Covid-19 bi-weekly with aggressive nasal swabbing that often-caused nose bleeds.

“These are children with speech impairments and learning disabilities. They have a hard time picking up on social cues and nuances. I can only imagine how confused we made them. But the paranoia spread like wildfire. If a student coughed, everyone screamed Covid,” our source said.

The school’s superintendent, he added, had become so gripped with palpable fear of Covid that he telephoned New York State Dept. of Public Health Commissioner Mary Bassett for help in handling his “Covid crisis.” Bassett purportedly said NYSDOH was “stretched thin enforcing mandates” and couldn’t guarantee a speedy “wellness check,” but she promised to make her “federal colleagues” aware of the dire situation.

On December 23, as RISE students were about to be released for winter recess, agents of FEMA and their nurse minions arrived at the school to determine how many children were unvaccinated, and, once identified, ushered them into a classroom where nurses stood in wait, their fingers clutching vaccine-filled syringes.

“One student, a 6-year-old, has a severe learning disability. He also has epilepsy. He went into a grand mal seizure when he saw the vaccine, and they jabbed his arm while he was seizing. He is lucky he didn’t die,” our source said.

“Some tried to resist, and were grappled. They were told—not that they all understood—that getting shots was the right thing to do. In all, 12 students were forcefully and, in some cases, violently vaccinated that day. It turns out the school’s enrollment contract had fine print saying that students must follow health guidelines as decided by school policy to include vaccinations. And administration used this to justify overriding waivers and exemptions gotten by parents,” our source went on.

RRN asked our source for the names of the victims, so we could interview the parents. If we get that information, we’ll provide a follow-up.

Soros-linked Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg: No Incarceration Except for Homicide and a Few Other Cases … SOROS, PUBLIC ENEMY NUMBER 1!

By Adina Kutnicki

CARDS ON THE TABLE: There is no patience, nor is there quarter to hide within these pages for tsk, tskers, when they wag their fingers in this direction: don’t call Soros an anti-semite! Too damn bad. He is.

FOR in point of fact, Soros, a Jew-by-birth, is an avowed anti-semitic. Yes, a rabid, self-hating Jew! And, as a Jewish American-Israeli, said apologists for evil-doers should be scorned and shamed. Plain and simple.

THAT being established, it is more than provable that Soros is the devil incarnate; hell-bent on destroying America and Israel, with western civilization as the knock-on effect.

CONSIDER the below overwhelming evidence, although hardly exhaustive.

YES, and so much more.

ALAS, now that NYC is reduced to a cesspool — due to the disasters inflicted via the two-term rein of terror designed by Comrade Bill de Blasio, along comes ANOTHER Soros-backed Manhattan DA! A never-ending nightmare. Indisputably, NYC is DOA. Stick a fork in it.

BREITBART | Joel B. Pollak | January 4, 2022

Newly-installed Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg instructed staff on Monday that his office will not seek pre-trial detention or prison sentences for crimes other than homicide, public corruption, and a few other exceptional cases.

In a memorandum obtained by the local CBS News outlet, Bragg declared:

Growing up in Harlem in the 1980s, I saw every side of the criminal justice system from a young age. Before I was 21 years old, I had a gun pointed at me six times: three by police officers and three by people who were not police officers. I had a knife to my neck, a semi-automatic gun to my head, and a homicide victim on my doorstep. In my adult life, I have posted bail for family, answered the knock of the warrant squad on my door in the early morning, and watched the challenges of a loved one who was living with me after returning from incarceration. Late last year, during a stretch of multiple shootings within three blocks of my home, I had perhaps the most sobering experience of my life: seeing ––through the eyes of my children–– the aftermath of a shooting directly in front of our home, as we walked together past yellow crime scene tape, seemingly countless shell casings, and a gun, just to get home.

In large part because of these experiences, I have dedicated my career to the inextricably linked goals of safety and fairness.

There is a presumption of pre-trial non-incarceration for every case except those with charges of homicide or the death of a victim, a class B violent felony in which a deadly weapon or dangerous instrument causes serious physical injury, sex offenses in Article 130 of the Penal Law, domestic violence felonies or charges of PL § 215.50, public corruption, rackets, or major economic crimes, including any attempt to commit any such offense under Article 110 of the Penal Law. For any charge of attempt to cause serious physical injury with a dangerous instrument, ADAs must obtain the approval of an ECAB
supervisor to seek pretrial detention.

The Office will not seek a carceral sentence other than for homicide or other cases involving the death of a victim, a class B violent felony in which a deadly weapon causes serious physical injury, domestic violence felonies, sex offenses in Article 130 of the Penal Law, public corruption, rackets, or major economic crimes, including any attempt to commit any such offense under Article 110 of the Penal Law, unless required by law. For any charge of attempt to cause serious physical injury with a dangerous instrument, ADAs must obtain the approval of an ECAB supervisor to seek a carceral sentence.

Prosecutors can only request incarceration in “extraordinary circumstances” and must first receive approval from a supervisor.

Bragg was elected in November 2021 with indirect backing from left-wing billionaire George Soros, who gave $1 million to the Color of Change PAC, which spent to elect Bragg.

“Soros also donated $1 million to Alvin Bragg’s successful DA campaign in Manhattan, funneling the cash through the Color of Change political action committee, according to public filings,” the New York Post reported.

Soros has spend millions in recent local prosecutorial elections, often backing left-wing radicals against incumbent or moderate Democrats. His involvement has coincided with a massive rise in violent crimes in Democrat-run cities.

New New York City Mayor Eric Adams took office Jan. 1, amid promises to stop the city’s ongoing crime surge.
 
But Bragg, who won a staggering 83% of the vote, has other ideas about criminal justice, though the two campaigned together.

As Breitbart News noted last November:

Bragg ran a campaign centering around his pro-jailbreak agenda that seeks to end prosecutions for what he calls “minor offenses” such as marijuana misdemeanors, turnstile jumping, trespassing, driving with a suspended license, prostitution, resisting arrest for non-criminal offenses, and obstructing the work of the New York City Police Department.

Likewise, Bragg has said he will reduce “mass incarceration” by recommending no more than 20-year maximum prison sentences “absent exceptional circumstances.” Bragg, notably, plans to ensure jail release for all suspects accused of crimes in Manhattan except in homicide, assault with a deadly weapon, and felony sex crime cases.

In June, Bragg was linked to Soros after it was revealed that the far-left Color of Change PAC which endorsed his candidacy was receiving millions from the billionaire investor.

At the time, Soros had donated about $1 million to the Color of Change PAC which was spending their funds to drive up support in Manhattan for Bragg.

Numerous arrestees, some of them accused of violent crimes, were released in 2020 and 2021 in New York City as a result of state bail reforms. Some allegedly went on to commit crimes that shocked the public, such as an antisemitic attack in Brooklyn.

The White House has refused on comment on the effect that Democrats’ “criminal justice reforms” have had at the state and local level in fueling a national crime wave.

Instead, Press Secretary Jennifer Psaki boasted Tuesday of the many executive actions that President Joe Biden had taken in 2021 to stop “gun violence,” without noting the contemporaneous rise in violent crime.

Hamas’ Istanbul Headquarters Has Directed Hundreds of Terror Attacks Against Israelis and Laundered Millions of Dollars

By Adina Kutnicki

THE more things change, the more they stay the same. Such is the case when it comes to centuries-old Islamic terrorism via barbarians who wage jihad on behalf of Allah. There is no sense in pussyfooting around, after all, the only ones who benefit are those who execute jihad and their supporters thereof.

IN this regard, a mere four years ago (Nov. 2017), this investigative journalist gave a global interview,

and it sent shock-waves across the internet. It was not for nothing.

WHILE several intersecting geo-political dangers came to the fore, a key player within became Turkey’s Brotherhood Mafia capo, that is, President Erdogan! And for further evidentiary trails, read within the above link.

AS such, the following analysis presented by the Jerusalem Center For Public Affairs (JCPA) is a more than important read. And when juxtaposed against the aforementioned interview, it is no wonder that the more things change, the more they stay the same.

JCPA | By Nadav Shragai | December 30, 2021

  • A decade has passed since the official opening of Hamas’ offices in Istanbul, and Turkey is courting Israel anew.
  • Turkey collaborates with terror organizations on both the ideological and operational levels.
  • Terrorists working on Turkish soil establish infrastructures and plan terror attacks against Israel.
  • Hamas senior officials (most former inmates in Israel for terrorism who were released in a prisoner exchange) are operating from Turkey against Israel. Some have even been granted Turkish citizenship.
  • In December 2021, Israeli security forces broke up Hamas-linked terror cells in Nablus (Shechem) and Hebron in the West Bank. On December 12, 2021, Israel’s Minister of Interior Ayelet Shaked signed an order banning the departure from the country of several known “senior Hamas activists” who, it was suspected, would link up with Hamas officials overseas.
  • Turkey today seeks another reconciliation with Israel. Israel should demand “payment in advance,” meaning that the Turks must first act against the Hamas operatives on their soil and prove that they are preventing them from continuing to act against Israel.
  • Only then will it be worth upgrading relations with Turkey to a level of understanding and cooperation – a goal that both sides certainly have an interest in promoting.

Introduction: Turkey Is Contributing to Hamas’ Military Empowerment

During the “Pioneers of Jerusalem” conference hosted by Turkey in December 2017, Maher Salah, Hamas’ former leader abroad, directly addressed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu: “The fate of your country is to disappear from the world, the fate of your kingdom is to be annihilated. I promise him [Netanyahu] that his country will not celebrate the 100th anniversary.”

A few days later, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan used Hamas terminology from the organization’s Charter when he invoked the “Trees and Stones” hadith.2 Erdoğan warned: “Those who think they own Jerusalem better know that tomorrow they will not even be able to hide behind trees.”

This hadith quoted in Article 7 of the 1988 Hamas Charter4 calls for Israel’s destruction. It deals with the Muslims’ ultimate war against the Jews: “Then the stones and the trees will say: ‘O Muslim, ‘o servant of God. There is a Jew hiding behind me; come and kill him.”

Hundreds of Terror Attacks and Attempted Attacks

But Erdoğan did not just settle for words and Hamas terminology. The year 2022 marks the 10th anniversary of the official establishment of the Hamas terror organization’s offices in Istanbul, and despite the official Turkish claims, not only Hamas’ political activity is involved. According to the Shabak (Israeli Security Agency), over the years, the Istanbul headquarters, branches, and operatives have directed hundreds of terror attacks and attempted attacks in Israel and the West Bank in particular. For many years, Turkey has relied on the distinction between Hamas’ “political wing” and its “military wing,” however, this rationalization, does not meet the test of reality.

After a decade of thwarting numerous terror attacks with seemingly connected to Hamas operatives in Turkey, early in 2018, Israel arrested (and subsequently deported) law professor Kamil Takli. He was recruited to Hamas by one of the freed prisoners from the Shalit deal, senior Hamas official Zaher Jabarin residing in Turkey. A protégé of Salah Arouri (at that time, head of Hamas’ West Bank operations), Jabarin was in charge of Hamas’ budget and helped enable – under Arouri’s guidance – widespread terror activity in the West Bank.5

Takli’s arrest, though preceded by other detentions, became, in Israel’s eyes, a milestone in the history of Turkey-Hamas collaboration, particularly with the publicity that Israel decided to give the development. An unusual announcement by the Shabak (which eluded the public’s attention) stated, for the first time, openly and officially, what until then, had only been whispered:

Turkey contributes to the military strengthening of Hamas via – inter alia – the SADAT Company that was established at the behest of Adnan Basha, an adviser who is close to Turkish administration officials. … The findings of the investigation underscore the fact that Hamas’ ramified economic and military activity in Turkey takes place unhindered as Turkish officials turn a blind eye and – on occasion – encourage it, and with the assistance of Turkish nationals, some of whom are close to the government.6

Indeed, most of Hamas’ activity in Turkey in recent years, has been led by a group of freed prisoners from the Shalit deal in 2011 who were expelled to Turkey or chose to move there. Some have even been granted Turkish citizenship.

Israel hoped that Turkey would honor the promise offered in the two countries’ reconciliation deal, signed in the aftermath of the May 2010 Marmara flotilla affair. On June 27, 2016, in two separate press conferences given by their heads of government, Israel and Turkey announced that they had reached a reconciliation deal. In one of its clauses, Turkey undertook to prevent the use of its territory for terror operations against Israel. Prime Minister Netanyahu said that this promise included putting an end to the funding of terror activity. Along with the official declarations, the Israeli media reported Turkey’s undertaking. However, it was also announced that the Hamas offices would remain in Turkey, but they would engage solely in political activity. Of course, that promise remained solely on paper.

After a half-decade of ups and downs in Israel-Turkey relations, a further attempt at reconciliation is now on the agenda. This time the initiative comes from the Turkish side. According to assessments, Turkey is trying to break out of the international isolation that has befallen it, improve its standing with the Biden administration, and ameliorate the difficult economic situation within Turkey.7

This study will survey the Turkey-Hamas collaboration over the past decade, before and after the 2016 “reconciliation deal.” It will show that a further reconciliation deal or understandings and agreements between Israel and Turkey must entail Turkish steps to oust Hamas and put an end to the orchestration of terror from its soil. This time, such measures must precede a deal, understandings, and a further reconciliation, not merely be part of a future deal.

The Ideological Background of the Turkey-Hamas Collaboration8

In the spring of 2017, then-Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon, in a speech at Tel Aviv University, described how President Erdoğan of Turkey viewed the role of Hamas: “Erdoğan is the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in the Middle East. He calls it the New Ottoman Empire. Since the beginning of his rule, he has sought to become a sultan. He promotes his Islam by supporting the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas, and not Fatah. He tries to achieve hegemony even in Europe through illegal immigration.”9

Indeed, in his own eyes, Erdoğan is the successor of Saladin and Suleiman the Magnificent, and the Turks are the “grandchildren” of those two. From time to time, Erdoğan invokes the dream of renewing the caliphate, and for him, Turkey defines itself as the representative of Muslim civilization. The Turkish president sees himself as the partner, patron, and protector of the Muslim Brotherhood throughout the Muslim world. His party, the Islamic Justice and Development Party, is close in its views to those of the Brotherhood and seeks to extend Turkish influence to lands that in the past were part of the Ottoman Empire and thereby restore the old glory.

Like Erdoğan, Hamas dreams of a Muslim revolution that will widen Islamic influence around the world. Hamas is also a branch of the Muslim Brotherhood, of which Erdoğan, as noted, now sees himself as a patron. The Turkish ruler has averred repeatedly in recent years that Hamas is not a terror organization. He described as “sisters,” a series of cities that the Ottoman Empire ruled in the past – Mecca, Medina, Cairo, and others. He has declared that “the world must know and understand that Ramallah, Nablus, Jericho, Rafah, Gaza, and Jerusalem, too, are sister cities whose residents are our brothers.” Thus, Erdoğan links his more distant vision of the caliphate to his concrete and primary concern with Jerusalem, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

In the 1920s, the Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin el Husseini, spread the rumor that Jews sought to destroy the al Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock. These charges became an effective means to recruit resources and volunteers.

Over the years, the Turkish president has also become complicit in the modern blood libel that accuses Israel and its institutions of seeking to destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque or at least putting it in danger. This is a commonality among many in the Muslim world, including Hamas, and it has sparked numerous waves of terror. Erdoğan has made several statements on the issue. In 2016, he accused Israel of “attempting to take over the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and one must stand guard and prevent it from conquering the place with its drilling and archaeological digs.”12 In 2017, he asserted that “the filthy Zionists are polluting the Temple Mount”13 and Israeli soldiers carelessly pollute the grounds of Al-Aqsa with their combat boots by using simple issues as a pretext and then easily spill blood there.”14

At a mass rally in 2018, the Turkish president declared, “We are facing a struggle against Zionist and Zionism. Even such a catastrophe, unfortunately, was not enough for Muslims to come to aid,” Erdoğan said as he criticized the Israeli violence against Palestinians.

“I separate Zionists from Jews. The main struggle is against Zionism and Zionists,” he said, adding: “Their hostility to Muslims is not at all forgiven.” “Israel has been doing whatever it wishes since 1947 and continues its way in the same reckless way today. We cannot unsee these facts. With the latest decision, the U.S. took, once again, the primacy of Jerusalem was attacked.” Erdoğan said while Al-Aqsa Mosque was increasingly becoming polluted by radical Zionist schemes, the Al-Khalil (Hebron Cave of the Patriarchs and Matriarchs) mosque remains occupied, and all Muslims can do is condemn.”15

Over the years, Erdoğan has enabled the ongoing activity of the Turkish nonprofit group, “Our Heritage,” in Jerusalem, which aims to defend Al-Aqsa against the Israeli incursions and the alleged threat to demolish it. In the past, Our Heritage took part in transporting hundreds of thousands of Israeli Arabs to the Mount to defend Al-Aqsa. The Turkish group has held contacts with groups from the radical Northern Branch of the Israeli Islamic Movement that have acted on the Temple Mount to prevent and disrupt visits by Jews there, with the aim of “protecting Al-Aqsa” from Israel.16 Our Heritage is funded in part by TIKA, a Turkish governmental aid agency that is subordinate to the office of the Turkish prime minister.17

A conference held in Turkey on November 7, 2020, by the Forum of Turkish Muslim Scholars for Jerusalem attended by religious scholars and politicians from Turkey and the Muslim world at large, assigned Turkey a historic role in Jerusalem and Palestine, including deepening its penetration of the city. These goals were expressed in speeches by the participants and in the conference’s concluding announcement, which stated that Palestine has an Ottoman identity and that the Turkish people have a right to Jerusalem no less than the Palestinian people.

The announcement called to augment the Turkish presence in the city in different ways, such as promoting and overhauling the Ottoman Waqf facilities in the city and pursuing initiatives for twin cities and twin mosques. The announcement also condemned the Arab countries for normalizing relations with Israel and expressed hope that the Al-Aqsa Mosque would soon be freed from its defilement.

Erdoğan, for his part, sent his blessings to the participants, underlining his support for “the glorious resistance of the Muslim Brotherhood” and asserting that Turkey had served Jerusalem “for four hundred years.” In a speech at the conference, Khaled Mashal, former head of Hamas’ Political Bureau, praised Turkey under Erdoğan’s leadership. He called Turkey a “crucial partner” and lauded the fact that it is regaining its regional status of the days of the Ottoman caliphate.

Simultaneously, on November 7-8, 2020, the First Virtual Conference of Jerusalem Pioneers was held by elements affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood and Turkey. Attended by Ismail Haniyeh, head of Hamas’ Political Bureau, Ahmad al-Raisoni, chair of the International Union of Muslim Scholars, and Al-Aqsa preacher Ekrima Sabri. The conference particularly emphasized the support of the Palestinians’ jihad and armed struggle against Israel “with money and with weapons,” especially in the face of “the danger of normalization” between Arab countries and Israel, and claimed that such support is a religious obligation.19

The Turkey-Hamas collaboration, which has included transferring funds to Gaza and hosting Hamas offices and leaders on Turkish soil, is not only expedient; it stems first and foremost from an ideological affinity between Erdoğan and Hamas. Although the relations between the Turkish president and Hamas have known their ups and downs, what has helped maintain them to the present is both sides’ fealty to the ideology of the Muslim Brotherhood.

The Initial Hamas Infrastructure on Turkish Soil – Salah Arouri

It was Salah Arouri, now deputy chief of Hamas’ Political Bureau, who laid the infrastructure for Hamas’ activity in Turkey 10 years ago, including directing terror attacks against Israelis on the West Bank. Already in May 2014, Arouri, then head of Hamas’ military headquarters abroad, declared that resistance in the West Bank was steadily on the rise and would eventually lead to an all-out confrontation with Israel. He also expressed hope that “the resistance in the West Bank will manage to obtain rockets and use them similarly to how they are used from the Gaza Strip.” Arouri noted that “rockets have been manufactured in Gaza under a blockade, so in the West Bank, as well, one can overcome all the difficulties and manufacture rockets.”20

The general public in Israel was first exposed to Arouri’s name only three months later when he declared at the fourth conference of the International Union of Muslim Scholars, held in Turkey, that Hamas’ military wing was behind the kidnapping and murder of the three Israeli teenage boys in Gush Etzion (June 12, 2014). His words were read aloud and in the name of the leader of Hamas, Khaled Mashal. They were recorded without Arouri’s knowledge and uploaded to YouTube, where they created a great stir.21 Arouri portrayed the operation as part of Hamas’ ongoing efforts to ignite a new intifada. Despite Arouri attempt to repudiate the words, then-Defense Minister Yaalon called him “the man in charge of the kidnapping and murder of the three Israeli teens” (Herzliya conference, 2015).

During those years, Arouri, as head of the West Bank region in Hamas’ military headquarters abroad, enjoyed the freedom of action in Turkey and orchestrated Hamas’ terror attacks in the West Bank.22

Salah Arouri, born in 1966 in the village of Arura, near Ramallah, and in the 1990s was one of the founders of the Hamas military wing in the West Bank. According to publications of the Shabak and the Intelligence and Terror Information Center, he was arrested by Israel in 1992 and sentenced to five years in prison for membership in a terror organization. Subsequently, he served additional prison sentences, and on March 30, 2010, was freed as part of a deal that was signed with him after a period of 18 months of incarceration. He first relocated to Jordan, then to Syria, where he resumed his terror activity. In Syria, Arouri was chosen as a member of Hamas’ Political Bureau, assigned the prisoners portfolio, and given a senior role in the negotiations that led to the Shalit exchange deal. When the civil war broke out in Syria and forced Hamas to evacuate its headquarters in Damascus, Arouri and some of his compatriots relocated to Istanbul and made it their home.

On the eve of the signing of the 2016 Turkey-Israel reconciliation deal, Arouri was asked to leave Turkey. He first found himself a home in Qatar, but amid Qatar’s crisis with the Gulf States and Saudi Arabia, he was forced to leave Doha and move to Lebanon, where he has enjoyed the protection of Hizbullah and its leader Hassan Nasrallah to this day. Arouri now lives Dahiya in the southern (Shiite) quarter of Beirut, Hizbullah’s stronghold in Lebanon. Over the years, he has become the link between Iran and Hizbullah on the one hand and Hamas on the other. In November 2018, the U.S. State Department announced a $5 million reward for information that would help lead to Arouri’s capture. They explained that he was one of the founders of the Hamas military wing, collaborating with the commander of the Quds Force of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, mobilizing funds, directing Hamas military operatives in the West Bank, and linked to several terror attacks including kidnappings.23

WANTED Salah Arouri

Since replacing Mousa Abu Marzook as deputy chair of the Hamas Political Bureau, Arouri has played a central role in the sporadic talks, mediated by Egypt, on an “arrangement” with Israel. He speaks fluent Hebrew, which he learned and polished during his many years of incarceration in Israel. In September 2017, Russia hosted Arouri as part of a Hamas delegation that came to Moscow for talks with Deputy Foreign Minister for Middle East Affairs Mikhail Bogdanov.24 In June 2017, then-Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman told Nikki Haley, then U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, that Arouri, who had made his way to Lebanon, aimed to continue trying to direct terror attacks against Israel. He called him “a dangerous terrorist who is responsible for lethal Hamas attacks against Israel, who must not be allowed to continue with his actions.”

In September last year, in an interview to the Al-Midan television station in Lebanon, Arouri said that in the next conflict with Israel, “the losses and the results on the ground will be unprecedented, the occupation will pay an unprecedented price, and the enemy will be surprised by the capabilities of the resistance…. The Israeli home front will be part of the war.” He added that Hizbullah was helping all the Palestinian factions, including Fatah.25

Shalit-Deal Deportees (and Others) – the Backbone of Hamas Activity in Turkey Today26

Ten of the terrorists who were released from Israeli prisons in October 2011, as part of the deal for the freeing of the kidnapped Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit from a Hamas prison, were exiled to Turkey. Despite “promises” in the Turkish media that they would be under the supervision of Turkish intelligence, these Hamas operatives and some of their comrades, enjoy complete freedom. The following are the main figures:

Husam Badran was freed in the Shalit deal and is a native of Nablus. In 2004, he was sentenced in Israel to 17 years in prison for his involvement in suicide bombings, during the second Intifada. In December 2013, after his expulsion, he was appointed official spokesman of Hamas abroad. He was also involved in directing a terror infrastructure in the Hebron area in March 2013. A Shabak announcement said Badran had transferred funds totaling hundreds of thousands of dollars for terror activities in Nablus.

Mousa al-Akari was a cell member that kidnapped and murdered Israeli Border Police officer Nissim Toledano in December 1992. Al-Akari was sentenced to three life terms, released in the Shalit deal, and expelled to Turkey. His brother, Ibrahim al-Akari, carried out a ramming attack at the Jerusalem light-rail station in November 2014. Israel considers Mousa al-Akari a Hamas operative who works from Turkish soil.

Zaher Jabarin is head of Hamas’ Finance Bureau. He was involved in the Prof. Kamil Takli affair in which the law professor was recruited in Turkey and arrested in Israel. He works at Hamas headquarters in Turkey, where he directs and funds West Bank terror.

Salamah Mari is a Hamas operative in Turkey whose name is also linked to Prof. Takli. Mari was freed in the Shalit deal. He was imprisoned for his involvement in a shooting attack in the Burqin area in March 1993 which an IDF soldier was killed.

Jihad Yaghmour is a Hamas operative originally from Beit Hanina in Jerusalem. He was involved in kidnapping the soldier Nachshon Wachsman in 1994, sentenced to life in prison, and expelled to Turkey in the Shalit deal. According to an Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center publication from December 24, 2019, Yaghmour, living in Turkey, has “served as a liaison to the Turkish government and the Turkish intelligence service MIT.” According to the experts of the Amit Center, Yaghmour is also involved in covert activities, mainly the handling of terrorist squads in Judea and Samaria. As cover for Yaghmour’s activity in Turkey, he serves as president of a cultural organization called the “Association for Jerusalem and Its History.”

Abd al-Rahman Ranimat is a former head of a Hamas cell in the Surif area in the West Bank responsible for several severe terror attacks in Israel, including the 1997 Café Apropos bombing in Tel Aviv, which killed three. Ranimat, too, was freed in the Shalit deal, first expelled to Gaza, and later moved to Turkey where he became the senior aide to Hamas commander Mazen Fukha. In March 2017, Fukha was assassinated in Gaza; Hamas claimed the Mossad was behind the attack.

Kamel Awad is a Hamas financial officer. In August 29, 2019, the U.S. Treasury Department placed him on the Counter-Terrorism Designation list.27 Awad, too, relocated from Turkey to Gaza (he was not among those freed in the Shalit deal).

Abd al-Hakim Hanani, according to Hamas sources, is in charge of a surveillance center in Istanbul for media and communications that provides intelligence to Hizbullah and Iran. Hanani, a crony of al-Arouri’s, was compelled to leave Turkey because of American and Israeli pressure. Hanani was involved in sending Hamas’ first suicide bomber to the Mehula intersection in the early 1990s.28

Hamas: The Stumbling Block to Turkish-Israeli Reconciliation

On the eve of the signing of Israel’s reconciliation deal with Turkey in 2016, Shurat haDin, an Israeli human rights organization that works on the legal front against terror entities, petitioned Israel’s Supreme Court against the deal.29 Although the petition was rejected, it included interesting details that add a further layer to the information on Hamas activity in Turkey. Among others, it mentions the following Hamas personnel who operate or have operated on Turkish soil:30

Mahmoud Atwan, originally from the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Sur Baher, freed in the Shalit deal, member of the cell that kidnapped and murdered Border Police officer Nissim Toledano in 1992; Majid Abu Katish, originally from Anata, also a member of that cell; Taiser Suleiman, expelled in the Shalit deal, murdered an Israeli soldier; Fahad Sabri Barhan al-Shaludi, appears from time to time on Turkish television; Walid Zakaria Akel, a founder of Hamas’ Izzadin al-Qassam Brigades, was given 21 life sentences; Haroun Mansour Yakoub Nasser al-Din, boasted in the past that Turkey grants former Hamas prisoners full freedom to come and go as they please; Ayman Mohammad Abu KhalilBakri Hanifa, a senior economic figure in Hamas claimed to have transferred millions of dollars from Qatar to Hamas via Turkey; and Maher Abid, a member of Hamas’ Political Bureau and senior financial operative, reportedly in charge of Hamas’ international relations until 2016.31

In her petition, Israeli attorney Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, the head of Shurat haDin, referred to the narrow and invisible line between “political Hamas” and “military Hamas,” as other Israeli courts had noted. Darshan-Leitner wrote: “Any agreement that accepts a distinction between the military wing and the political wing of a terror organization will end up strengthening the military wing and the organization’s terror activity, since, after all, the whole purpose of the ‘political wing’ is to buttress the military wing’s ability to operate and engage in terror attacks. And if the political wing is granted mitigating conditions and ‘breathing space,’ that will only boost the terror organization’s activity as a whole, and most of all its military wing.”32

15 Examples of Hamas Terror Infrastructures, Attacks, and Attempted Attacks Directed from Turkish Soil

The roots of Hamas activity on Turkish soil go back to the infamous Marmara flotilla in 2010. The Turkish organization IHH, which was in charge of the Marmara flotilla and was declared a terror organization in Israel,33 directly assisted with the funding of the Hamas military wing in Gaza. The head of the IHH branch in Gaza, Mehmet Kaya, transferred cash from Turkey to the Hamas senior officials Ismail Haniyeh and Raed Saad. These funds served, among other things, to build a naval-training facility at a Hamas base in Gaza and to purchase weapons and equipment. As a Shabak investigation revealed, “The IHH transferred to the Hamas military wing, systematically and for years, funds that served to strengthen Hamas militarily.”3435

IHH was on the scene in 2007 when Gazans tore down the wall between Gaza and Egypt.

January 2010 – Attacks thwarted at the Malcha Mall in Jerusalem, the central bus stations of Jerusalem and Beersheba, and the Tel Hashomer military base. Marad Namer of Sur Baher, Jerusalem and Marad Kamel of Wadi Joz, Jerusalem, were arrested at the central bus station in Beersheba. Their interrogation revealed that they were recruited by the Hamas headquarters abroad during their studies and work in Jordan and Dubai. Namer met with Hamas members in Turkey. The two were supposed to receive weapons and explosives from their handlers abroad. According to a Shabak announcement on January 3, 2010, they gathered intelligence that included photographs and sketches of potential sites for an attack, including the central bus station in Jerusalem as well as sites in Mevaseret Zion (near Jerusalem), Beersheba, the Malha Mall in Jerusalem, the area of hotels and seafront in Tel Aviv, and the area of the Tel Hashomer military base, which was crowded with soldiers.36

April 2014 – Mahmoud Tuama revealed Hamas’ activity on the Temple Mount, its ties with the Muslim Brotherhood, and ongoing activity of Hamas’ headquarters and senior officials in Turkey. Tuama, who was originally from Tulkarem in the West Bank and lived in Saudi Arabia, was arrested on April 14. During his interrogation, he described how Hamas uses the Israeli Islamic Movement as a front organization to promote its goals in Jerusalem, focusing on the Temple Mount and payment of the salaries of the Islamic Movement’s operatives there. Another goal was disrupting visits by Jews to the site. Tuama was one of the first to testify in Shabak interrogations regarding Turkey’s absorption of most of the Shalit-deal deportees and was providing them financial support.37

May-August 2014 – A coup attempt against the Palestinian Authority and significant terror attacks in Israel were thwarted. All were planned by Hamas-Turkey. Hamas’ military infrastructure, operating all over the West Bank to recruit military cells and carry out attacks against Israeli targets, attempted to enlist hundreds of people. The ninety-three individuals who were connected to the plan were arrested. The infrastructure’s activity was directed by the Hamas headquarters in Turkey, of which Salah Arouri was in charge. Before their arrest, some of the operatives of this infrastructure succeeded in planting explosive devices in Samaria.

The training for the different tasks, including terror attacks, kidnappings, attacks on settlements, and the planting of explosive devices, were supervised by Hamas military wing operatives abroad and in Gaza. The training was conducted in Jordan, Turkey, Syria, and Gaza. As part of Hamas’ plans, terror cells from Jerusalem, Hebron, Nablus, Jericho, and another 37 Palestinian villages were supposed to carry out terror attacks against Palestinian Authority institutions as part of the coup attempt to take over the West Bank.

When the infrastructure was uncovered, Hamas terror funds totaling more than 600,000 shekels were seized along with a variety of weaponry including 24 rifles, six pistols, seven rocket launchers, storerooms, and a large quantity of ammunition. The military infrastructure was headed by Riad Nasser, a resident of Dir Qadis in the Binyamin region of the West Bank. Nasser was one of the Hamas chiefs in Ramallah and had served several prison sentences for Hamas military activity. His recruiter was Arouri, then living in Turkey.

The dozens of detainees planned a series of major terror attacks against Israel. These would mainly have been perpetrated by the Jerusalem branches of the cell, to which many operatives were recruited by former prisoners, students, and academics. Emphasis was placed on specializations in chemistry and engineering. Among the prominent detainees involved in this endeavor were, according to the Shabak, Dr. Majdi Mafarja, a resident of Beit Liqya with a degree in computers who was recruited in Malaysia; Mahmoud Abu Daoud, a resident of Hebron who admitted involvement in recruiting military cells to carry out kidnappings, planting of explosives, and shootings; and Yihye Ata of Deir Abu Mashan, who admitted in his interrogation that he was recruited by Arouri to head a military cell.38

August 20, 2014 – Arouri takes responsibility for the kidnapping and murder of the three teenage boys. He gave a speech that day to the fourth conference of the International Union of Muslim Scholars, which was held in Turkey, and said that the Hamas military wing was behind the kidnapping and murder of the three boys from Gush Etzion on June 12, 2014.

As noted, his words were read from a page, in the name of Khaled Mashal, a Hamas leader, and recorded without Arouri’s knowledge and uploaded to YouTube, where they reached a large audience. This was the first time Hamas admitted its involvement in the kidnapping and murder. A short time afterward, Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon said the fact that Turkey was hosting Arouri at that time was “incredible.”

September 2014 – An extensive Hamas military infrastructure in the West Bank was broken up, along with the terror attacks planned at Jerusalem’s Teddy Stadium and the light rail in Jerusalem. They were planned by the Hamas headquarters in Turkey. The Hamas military infrastructure in the West Bank, uncovered by the Shabak, was aimed at recruiting military cells and mounting terror attacks against Israeli targets. Its activity was directed by the Hamas headquarters in Turkey, and its Hamas operatives were trained abroad and infiltrated into the territory. More than 30 operatives were arrested, and M16 rifles, ammunition, and materiel for producing explosives were seized. Some of the operatives of this cell had carried out the bombings at the Rechelim Intersection and the Jit intersection (without casualties) in Samaria on August 31, 2014.

The detainees’ interrogation revealed that after a process of recruitment, usually in Jordan, training was conducted in several countries, including Turkey. The recruits went to Gaza, sometimes through smuggling tunnels, for further courses. “In Turkey,” according to the Shabak’s findings, “they focused on planning the military operations: a combination of different types of activity aimed at carrying out terror attacks on targets in Israel, the West Bank, and abroad…. After the military training, the operatives were integrated into the various spheres of activity, according to the distribution and staffing of that was conducted by senior Hamas officials in Turkey.”

The detainees planned to attack traffic arteries with firearms and explosives, as well as settlements and military facilities in the West Bank; infiltrate and attack Israeli communities; kidnap Israelis in the West Bank and abroad; mount attacks within Israel by recruiting military cells in Jordan and training them for infiltrations; attack the Teddy Stadium and the light rail in Jerusalem, and perpetrate car-bomb attacks. Among the main detainees: Manaf Ajbara, a resident of Jordan, and Mahmoud Melhem of Anabta/Tulkarem.39

March 2015 – Hamas trained Palestinian students in Malaysia for terror activity on the West Bank. Some of the training was conducted in Turkey. An indictment served to the Judea Military Court charged Wasim Kawasme, a resident of Hebron, with crimes of membership and activity in an outlawed organization, making contact with the enemy, and receiving enemy funding.

In the framework of the training in Malaysia, Kawasme went to a weeklong course that Hamas organized in Turkey. During his visit, he heard, along with other Hamas operatives, a lecture by the head of the Hamas network abroad at that time, Muhammad Nazal.40

October 2015 – The murder of Eitam and Na’ama Henkin was directed from Turkey. The Henkins were murdered in a shooting attack on October 1 at the Beit Furik intersection between Elon Moreh and Itamar. The two were shot from close range by a Hamas operative and died on the spot in front of their children. The attack was planned by Hamas operative Ragheb Ahmad Muhammad Aliwi, who recruited a cell of four Nablus residents and provided them with weapons. The attack was orchestrated by the Hamas headquarters in Turkey.41

January 2017 – Hamas operatives in Istanbul instructed Malik Kazmar on how to recruit operatives for the organization in Israel. Kazmar’s interrogation revealed that he was recruited for Hamas service in August 2015 while living in Jordan. In January 2016, he was sent for training at a camp in Syria and, at the start of 2017, was given further instructions by Hamas operatives in Istanbul. In the course of his interrogation, Kazmar turned over the contents of a memory card he had received from his handlers on Turkish soil. These had been concealed with the help of special software that contained security instructions. The contents were designed to help him carry out his plans. An indictment against Kazmar was served in March 2017 at the Military Court in Samaria.42

February 2017 – Muhammad Murtagha, director of TIKA in Gaza, a Turkish-government humanitarian aid organization, defrauded his organization and funneled aid to Hamas terror operatives instead of needy people. He was arrested on his way to Turkey, where he planned to obtain information that would help Hamas improve the precision of its rockets. The investigation of the affair uncovered the fact that Murtagha was supposed to go from Gaza to Turkey to receive satellite photos of sensitive sites in Israel, thereby improving the precision of rockets in Hamas’ possession. On February 12, 2017, he was arrested on his way to Turkey, where he was to copy the maps and photos onto a USB flash drive, bring them to Gaza, and convey them to the Izzadin al-Qassam Brigades.

During his interrogation, it further emerged that the Turkish IHH organization had helped to directly fund Hamas military activity. Israel had declared IHH a terror organization in 2008 because of its support for Hamas. Murtagha’s interrogation revealed that Mehmet Kaya, head of the IHH branch in Gaza, had transferred to Hamas senior officials Ismail Haniyeh and Raed Saad cash that had come from Turkey and was designated for the Hamas military wing. These funds served, among other things, to build a naval-training facility at a Hamas base in Gaza and to purchase equipment and weapons. In this fashion, the Shabak said, the IHH systematically funded the Hamas military wing for years.

Murtagha’s interrogation further revealed that beginning in 2009, he had operated within the Hamas military wing. This activity included military training, production of weapons and explosive devices, and the digging of terror tunnels. Murtagha also stored hand grenades and rifles in his home.43

In light of Murtagha’s arrest, the Shabak clarified that “Hamas’ various ways of deceiving the international community and humanitarian aid organizations had been revealed. These deceptions, in which senior officials of the organization are involved, enable the diversion of funds and resources that are intended to rehabilitate the Gaza Strip and its needy population. Hamas thereby gains wider room to maneuver as it exploits all its material and economic resources for purposes of terror activity and military empowerment.”44

February 2018 – The Prof. Takli Affair. Funds for the “Army of Palestine” and liaison with Turkish officials. This affair is of great importance because it shows how much Turkish officials and Hamas senior officials in Turkey are intertwined. Its details make it hard for the Turkish authorities to claim a lack of knowledge about Hamas activity in their country.

The two main characters of the affair are law professor Kamil Takli of Istanbul, who visited Israel as a tourist and member of a delegation of Turkish lawyers, and Daram Jabarin, a resident of Umm al-Fahm. The two were recruited for Hamas service by Zaher Jabarin, one of those freed in the Shalit deal who resides in Turkey. Jabarin directs Hamas’ budget from Turkey. Under the guidance of Arouri (who lived in Lebanon), Jabarin also promoted extensive West Bank terror activity from his place of residence in Turkey.

Takli revealed in his interrogation that Hamas operates in Turkey in close contact with Turkey’s top leadership and that senior Turkish officials help strengthen the Hamas militarily through the SADAT Company. With money and weapons, the company helps build the “Army of Palestine.” According to Israeli Arab-affairs commentator Pazit Ravina and other sources, “The SADAT Company was established in 2013 by General Adnan Tanreverdi, former head of the Special Forces of the Turkish army, under the inspiration of none other than Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. Tanreverdi, who was dismissed from the Turkish army in 1997 because of his Islamist activity, eventually became one of Erdoğan’s close advisers. Since then, mutual trust and deep ideological affinity have prevailed between the two.”45

According to a Shabak document: “The investigation of Kamil Takli revealed that Turkey is contributing to the military empowerment of Hamas, among other things through the SADAT Company, which was established under the guidance of Adnan Basa, the close adviser to Turkish government officials.”

The company was founded to help provide money and weapons to the “Army of Palestine,” whose purpose is to fight Israel. One of the company’s employees also helped Hamas senior officials visit a weapons exhibit in Turkey in 2015, during which they expressed interest in drone capabilities.

Hamas, it further emerged during the interrogation, maintains close ties with the Turkish authorities via Jihad Yaghmour, the terror operative involved in the kidnapping and murder of the Israeli soldier, Nachshon Wachsman. Yaghmour, too, was freed as part of the Shalit deal. Yaghmour resides in Turkey.

The interrogation also found that in 2012, Takli was asked to help newly arrived Hamas operatives in Turkey to get settled and established economically. The terror operatives whom Takli helped, most of them freed in the Shalit deal, were involved in attacks that killed Israelis. Takli helped them obtain visas, deal with rentals, purchase real estate assets for residence and businesses, fancy vehicles, and establish a sound business footing in Turkey by registering companies under his name.

The Shabak’s investigation revealed extensive Hamas money-laundering in Turkey under the supervision of Zaher Jabarin, with the authorities turning a blind eye to the source of the funds. The investigation also found that Hamas operatives owned a company named Imas, which served Hamas by camouflaging money-laundering activity involving sums of millions of dollars that were transferred to Gaza and different countries.

The Shabak noted that an account for Imas was opened at one of Turkey’s largest banks, Akbank and that the company’s director-general opened another account under his name at the Turkey Finance Bank.46

The Investigation of Daram Jabarin

But Tikli was only one character in the story: “The Imas Company’s importance for Hamas was also revealed in the interrogation of the second suspect, Daram Jabarin,” according to the Shabak. “Jabarin was recruited to Hamas by a relative, Zaher Jabarin, during the former’s visit to Turkey. The appeal to him was made under the cover of Imas’ business activity. For a year-and-a-half, Daram made frequent visits to Turkey and was asked by his handler to convey Hamas funds from Turkey to the West Bank. The handler in Turkey gave Daram hundreds of thousands of euros destined for Hamas terror cells, and he took care to hide them well in the West Bank. In a search of Daram’s house in the Israeli town of Umm al-Fahm, a sum of 91,000 euros was seized, which he intended to transfer to the West Bank.”

A Shabak investigation further found that Daram acted under the guidance of Hamas senior officials together with Zaher Jabarin and his right-hand man Salama Mari, both of whom had settled in Turkey with Takli’s help. As noted, in March 1993, Salama Mari, later freed in the Shalit deal, was involved in a shooting attack in the Burqin area which killed an IDF soldier. The investigation led to the arrests of other suspects who were Umm al-Fahm residents and had helped Daram financially.

After his interrogation, Kamil Takli was expelled from Israel; Daram Jabarin, for his part, was put on trial.

“The investigation’s findings,” the Shabak stated, “illustrate Hamas’ extensive military and economic activity in Turkey, which is conducted undisturbed. The Turkish authorities turn a blind eye and sometimes even encourage it, and with the help of Turkish citizens, some of whom are close associates of the government. This activity is supported, among other things, by business platforms that enable Hamas to launder funds that are transferred to the West Bank and to recruit Israelis to its activity.”

May 2017 – A cell of the Islamic Movement that planned to attack soldiers in the Negev made contact with Hamas-Turkey for guidance and financial assistance. Two members of the cell, Muhammad Masri of Beersheba and Abdullah Abu Ayyash of Kuseifa, had been put on trial a year earlier. Their friend, Mahmoud Lawisi of Qalansawe, then living in Turkey, was arrested immediately upon arriving in Israel in March 2017. It turned out that the members of the cell turned to Faris al-Umari, a resident of Sendal for approval of the attack. Al-Umari went to Turkey late in October 2016 and met there with Majid Abu Katish, a Hamas senior official who was among those freed in the Shalit deal. Al-Umari asked him for financial aid and guidance for terror attacks he had planned.47

May 2018 – Two members of the Sur Baher (near Jerusalem) cell that planned terror attacks near the settlement of Oranit, visited Turkey. One of them was given hundreds of thousands of shekels in terror funds. The cell was headed by Nasim Hamada. Its members, according to the Shabak, were Izaddin Atun and Oveida Amira. Hamada was in contact with Hamas operatives who had been expelled to Gaza in the Shalit deal. Izaddin Atun and Oveida Amira had already met in Turkey in 2017 with two of the Hamas operatives expelled in the Shalit deal, Mahmoud Atwan and Musa Akari. In this meeting, Izaddin received terror funds from Hamas, totaling thousands of dollars.

July 2018 – Erdoğan intervenes to free a female Turkish citizen imprisoned in Israel on suspicion of terror infractions. After governmental contacts between Turkey and Israel, Ebru Özkan, age 27, who was charged with transferring funds to Hamas, was freed and returned to her country. The Turkish president’s close advisor, Ibrahim Kalin, tweeted that Erdoğan welcomed her return. Turkish media quoted Özkan as thanking Erdoğan for taking a personal interest in her case.48

August 2018 – A Hamas infrastructure was discovered in the Hebron area that included many women. This infrastructure was assisted by Hamas-Turkey. It was led by Nizar Shehada and Faris Abu Sharakh, two senior Hamas operatives who had made use of a number of women to set up a central committee that would serve as a command arm of the organization. The women’s committee was headed by Dina Karami, wife of Nisat Karami, who was involved in a 2010 terror attack that killed four residents of Beit Hagai and was killed in an exchange of fire with Israeli forces. Several women of the organization were sent for meetings with members of the Hamas headquarters who had been expelled in the Shalit deal. This branch is headed by Haroun Nasser al-Din, who lives in Turkey. The women were given terror funds, messages, and instructions.

May 2019 – The Telegraph: Hamas-Turkey planned to assassinate then-Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat, then-Police Commissioner Roni Alsheikh, and former Member of Knesset Yehuda Glick. Based on transcripts of interrogations of suspects in Israel and on indictments that were served against three east Jerusalem residents, Adham Muslamani, a Jerusalem resident, met with senior Hamas agent Zakaria Najib in Istanbul in February 2019. The latter told Muslamani that if he wanted to be remembered, he had to kill a senior Israeli official. Najib, the report said, suggested that Muslamani assassinate Barkat, Alsheikh, or Glick and also offered him funds as well as weapons training in Turkey. After the meeting, Muslamani returned to his home in the Shuafat refugee camp in east Jerusalem, tried to purchase a pistol, but was arrested by the Shabak.49

The Money Trail

Besides hosting Hamas offices and senior officials who planned terror attacks, Turkey has also become a safe haven for Hamas’ financial affairs, including funding terror organizations in the West Bank. In a report published by the U.S. Treasury Department on September 10, 2019, the United States announced that it had “designated 15 leaders, individuals, and entities affiliated with terror groups.”50 The list included operatives and companies based in Turkey that were involved in transferring funds to Hamas. The report revealed that Hamas operatives and collaborators in Turkey engage in fundraising, transferring money to the military wing in Gaza, funding terror organizations in the West Bank, and running money-changing and fund-transferring companies in Turkey through which terror funds are laundered. The information published by the Treasury Department shows that the main source of financial support to Hamas via Turkey (and sometimes via Lebanon) is Iran. The Treasury’s efforts to “disrupt terrorist activity by depriving terrorist supporters of financial, material, and logistical backing worldwide… serves as an important tool in [U.S.] efforts to drain the financial resources of the Iranian regime’s malign actors including the IRGC, and its foreign expeditionary arm, the Qods Force (IRGC-QF).”51

The Treasury Department lists the Redin Exchange Company, based in Turkey, as responsible for having “materially assisted, sponsored, or provided financial, material, or technological support for, or goods or services to, HAMAS. …As of March 2019, the Redin Exchange and financial facilitator, Muhammad Sarur, were involved in a $10 million dollar transfer to Hamas’ operational arm, the Izz-Al-Din Al-Qassam Brigades.”

The U.S. agency named Redin’s Deputy Director, Ismail Tash, for maintaining a “steady contact with Hamas collaborators for transferring funds from Iran to Hamas.” The report also fingered Zaher Jabarin, the Hamas senior official living in Turkey, as the recipient of $5.5 million from Redin.

Jihad Yaghmour – Hamas’ Official Representative in Turkey

Jihad Yaghmour is Hamas’ official representative in Turkey. Involved in the kidnapping of the soldier Nachshon Wachsman and sentenced to life in prison, Yaghmour was expelled to Turkey as part of the Shalit deal. Although his official post there is president of the Jerusalem and Our History Association, some experts argue that is only a cover. Yaghmour was also involved in “activating terror cells in the West Bank under the direction of Salah Arouri.”

Yaghmour’s ties with the Turkish authorities are almost overt. On December 14, 2019, he accompanied a Hamas delegation headed by Ismail Haniyeh that visited Turkey and, that month, met with the deputy chair for foreign affairs of the Justice and Development Party. In May 2019, Yaghmour accompanied Khaled Mashal, chairman of Hamas’ Political Bureau, to a meeting with a senior member of the Justice and Development Party in Turkey. In Shabak interrogations of detainees in Israel, Yaghmour’s name arose as the main liaison between Turkey and Hamas.

An analytical report on November 27, 2019, by the Investigative Journal channel identified Yaghmour as the conduit between Hamas and the Turkish government. The Telegraph reported in December 2019, that Yaghmour was maintaining daily contacts with the Turkish intelligence service. This bureau cooperates with Western intelligence agencies in the fight against terror and is responsible for conveying intelligence information to a series of Turkish officials – from President Erdoğan to the prime minister, the chief of staff, the secretary-general of the National Security Council, and other Turkish organizations.52

Turkey Denies Any Connection to Terror

Turkey has repeatedly denied that it allows Hamas to operate from its territory against Israel. “We firmly reject the accusation that the Turkish territory is being used for any action against Israel or any other country,” declared the Turkish Foreign Ministry in December 2019. The Ministry further argued that Turkey and other countries do not consider Hamas as a terrorist group “but as a political reality which has won the elections in Gaza back in 2006…. It is worth mentioning that last year the U.N. General Assembly refused to define Hamas as a terror organization. A series of countries including Turkey maintain ties with Hamas at various levels.”53

Erdoğan himself, insisted in a media interview, that Hamas is not a terrorist movement and that its members are not terrorists but “people who defend their land.” Senior officials in Ankara strongly reject what they claim is an assortment of unproven allegations.54 “There are no such secret terror cells in Turkey that carry out terror attacks,” they argue. “Hamas leaders in Turkey were sent by Israel as part of the Shalit deal.”

Turkish diplomats reportedly reacted “angrily” to Israeli claims that Turkey was hosting Hamas’ terror headquarters in Istanbul.55 “This,” they say, “is a lie and a falsehood. It is a figment of imagination. There are elements in Israel who are trying to torpedo, at any price, efforts to iron out the differences in the relations between the two countries and begin a fresh page. They put forward lies that Hamas operates in Turkey with the government’s knowledge. Turkey conducts a dialogue with Hamas, but in no way allows any terror organization to operate from its territory.”56

Conclusion and Recommendation: Israel Must Demand Turkey’s Uprooting of the Hamas Terror Organization in Turkey Prior to the Improvement of Relations

Ten years is a sufficient period to study Turkey’s behavior with regard to Hamas. The facts are clear. There is no gray area; the picture is black-and-white. The Hamas terror organization is hosted on Turkish soil, and from there, it directs, with the knowledge of the Turkish authorities, terror operations against Israel.

The root of this dispute with Turkey is its twisted definition of Hamas. Whereas Israel correctly defines it as a terror organization, Turkey pleads innocent and asserts that Hamas operatives on its soil are functionaries of “Hamas’ political wing.” Contrary to this Turkish definition, a legal Israeli ruling concerning Hamas’ Dawa [social welfare] activity, which provides social, community, and religious services to an Arab population, invalidated it on the grounds that a civilian infrastructure would clearly facilitate the entrenchment of Hamas terror.

Israeli Judge Amnon Cohen of the Jerusalem District Court wrote when convicting three Hamas operatives who served as heads of Hamas’ Advisory Council in Jerusalem: “This is Hamas’ way of inculcating the ideology of a terror organization and sustaining it, thereby also widening the circle of its supporters. This extensive array of services, despite its ostensibly humanitarian purpose, is intended to expand the terror organization’s base of public support and create economic dependence on it among the population, as well identification and commitment to its path and its values.”57

The same logic can be applied to the activity of the “Hamas political wing” in Turkey. The facts presented here, and others in the hands of Israel’s security services, show that it is not just a “political wing” that could develop into a military wing, but a “political wing” that serves as a cover for a military wing.

Turkey’s courtship of Israel in an attempt to repair relations gives Israel a golden opportunity to act effectively against the Turkey-Hamas collaboration. Turkey’s current and relatively weak position (economically, security-wise, and internationally) affords Israel a better bargaining position than it had in 2016 when the Israel-Turkey reconciliation deal was signed.

At that time, Israel settled for a Turkish promise not to allow Hamas operatives living in Turkey to keep from orchestrating terror activity in the future. The promise was not kept. This time Israel should demand “payment in advance,” meaning that Turkey must first act against the Hamas operatives on their soil and prove that they are preventing them from continuing to act against Israel. Only then will it be worth upgrading relations with Turkey, to a level of understanding and cooperation, a goal that both sides certainly have an interest in promoting.
