Targeting Senior Terrorists Reasserts Deterrence - Yaakov Lappin
The attempt to kill Muhammad Deif, the head of Hamas' military wing, is one component of a wider strategy to reassert Israeli deterrence, former Israel Navy chief Vice-Adm. Eliezer Marom said.
Keeping senior terrorists on the run forces them to go on the defensive and spend less time trying to murder Israeli civilians, he said.
Family of "Righteous Gentile" Featured in New York Times Story Was Hosting Hamas Terrorist
- Adam Kredo
The New York Times ran a front-page profile on Henk Zanoli, who was awarded a medal by Israel for his family's efforts to save a Jewish family during the Holocaust. Zanoli recently returned his medal to protest an Israeli airstrike on a home in Gaza that killed six of his relatives by marriage.
Zanoli and the Times failed to mention that a Hamas operative, Al Qassam Brigades member Mohammed Mahmoud al-Maqadma, was in the family's home at the time of the airstrike, according to publicly available information.

Hamas Claims Responsibility for Kidnapping and Murder of Three Israeli Teens
- Jack Khoury
Salach al-Aruri, a senior Hamas official based in Turkey, boasted during a conference in Istanbul that Hamas' al-Qassam Brigades were behind the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teenagers in the West Bank in June.
"The al-Qassam's mujahedeen were the ones to carry out [the abduction]," he told an event organized by the International Union of Muslim Scholars.
Previously, Hamas had refrained from taking responsibility for the abduction and murder.

The idea of Gaza being the most densely populated place in the world is a propaganda fabrication. Gaza had in 2010 11,542 people per square mile, less densely populated than Hong Kong (17,422), Singapore (17,723), Monaco (39,609), and Macau (52,163). No one calls these places teeming, open-air prisons - with reason. Hong Kong has the world's third largest financial center. Singapore has the third highest per capita income in the world. Monaco has the world's highest GDP per capita. And Macau is one of the world's richest cities - testimony to what hard work, solid industries and responsible government can achieve in small, resource-poor territories.
