Fires Renew in Southern Israel

Five fires broke out Thursday nearby the communities living along the Gaza border, the Israel Fire and Rescue Services said in a statement.

It is the third consecutive day that Gazans are launching incendiary balloons into Israeli territory, igniting fires in open fields and forests in the western part of the Negev.

Most of them were deemed “small and not dangerous” by Israeli emergency services.

In response on overnight Tuesday, the Israel Air Force struck terror targets in the Gaza Strip. Some 20 fires erupted in the Gaza envelope at the same time when the traditional flag march took place in Jerusalem.

Hamas Chief Attempts to Gain Support in Morocco Trip

Hamas chief Ismail Haniyeh will meet Morocco's main opposition party on Thursday as part of a visit to build support for the Palestinians despite the country's recent diplomatic accord with Israel.

Haniyeh arrived in Morocco on Wednesday and met the Islamist PJD, the largest party in the governing coalition, and will hold talks with several other main parties during his four-day visit.

On Thursday, he is meeting PAM and Istiqlal, two of the main opposition parties, with other party meetings scheduled before he leaves on Sunday.

The trip comes after King Mohammed VI in December agreed to improve Moroccan relations with Israel as part of a deal with the United States that also included American recognition of Rabat's sovereignty over Western Sahara.

In Morocco, the visit is seen as a way to balance ties with Israel and the Palestinians and demonstrate that despite its more friendly relations with Israel, Rabat still supports Palestinian independence hopes.

On Tuesday, King Mohammed congratulated the new Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett on forming a government. The king, who holds ultimate power in Morocco, backs a two-state solution with east Jerusalem as the Palestinian capital.

Imam of Incitement โ€“ in custody

Youssef Albaz, the Imam of Lod, was taken into police custody last night and is being questioned under suspicion of incitement to commit acts of terrorism and violence.

The Regavim Movement filed an official complaint earlier this month, including detailed documentation of Albaz’s inflammatory, racist pronouncements and his explicit calls to his followers to commit acts of terrorism and violence. Last night’s arrest was welcomed by Regavim’s Director General in a statement released early this morning:

“The Regavim Movement applauds the initiation of law enforcement procedures against Youssef Albaz and demands that he be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. The horrific violence to which the Jewish residents of Lod were subjected was fueled by the poisonous, antisemitic hate speech spewed by Imam Albaz, a member of the outlawed Northern Branch of the Islamic Movement. Albaz’s incitement resulted in spilled blood – the lynching murder of Yigal Yehoshua, dozens of wounded citizens and massive damage to private and public property. The time has come to make Albaz pay the price for his incitement. Better late than never.

PA Cult of Martyrdom Worship Still Going Strong

When one Fatah Central Committee member posts a picture of himself kissing the blood-stained shirt of a “heroic Martyr,” and another praises Palestinian women for being special because they see “their children as insignificant compared to the homeland” and make “sounds of joy for the Martyrs,” and when a PA official talks about a young man’s death as his “crowning his struggle with Martyrdom-death,” then it is clear that the Palestinian Authority’s cult of Martyrdom worship is still flourishing.

 These also indicate that PA leaders are still promoting death as “Martyrs for Palestine”– an ideal the PA has cultivated in Palestinians for decades.

While violent riots were raging in Jerusalem, only two weeks before the recent war, Fatah Central Committee member Abbas Zaki praised Palestinian women for not grieving when losing their loved ones as do other women. 

Zaki described the priorities of Palestinian women who “view their children as insignificant compared to the homeland,” and elaborated on how they are “proud of Martyrdom, and sing for the grooms” – a reference to the belief that a Martyr's funeral is considered his wedding to the 72 Virgins in Paradise in Palestinian Islam and culture.

Senior Fatah Official Supports Hamas Rockets

While it was the terror organizations Hamas and Islamic Jihad that fired over 4,300 rockets into Israel in the May 2021 war, Fatah officials are openly expressing their support for the rocket attacks. 

Fatah Central Committee member Abbas Zaki, for example, expressed his admiration on different occasions, “blessing the rockets” that forced Israelis to “hide” in bomb shelters.

Similarly, Zaki stated that the Palestinian “victory” was achieved partly thanks to “those in the Gaza Strip who subdued the Israeli generals and sent them to bomb shelters.” [SHMS News Agency, June 8, 2021]

At an event commemorating former Islamic Jihad Movement Secretary-General Ramadan Abdallah Shalah, the Fatah official expressed his support for the rocket barrages on Israeli cities through which Islamic Jihad’s military wing “taught the enemy an important lesson”.
