Hamas suggests…

Hamas itself is suggesting their man was not killed by the Mossad but rather by one of their Arab enemies:

A preliminary investigation conducted by Hamas suggests that the assassination of one of its officials in Dubai last month was likely carried out by agents of an Arab government, and not by Israel’s Mossad spy agency.

Der Judenstaat

I live in a mixed neighborhood. Mixed means that Jews and Arabs are living here (while the term “mixed marriage” in Israel mostly means (or at least used to mean) that an Ashkenazi Jew marries a Sfardi/Mizrachi Jew). About 30 m from where I am sitting now is a mosque. Four times a day I can here the cal for prayer (for whatever reason there is not call before dawn). The carpenter shop where I bought my closet is run by Arabs and Jews together (I think Ahmed is the boss). The Jews are observant. The door of the shop has a mezuza. The mini market where I sometimes shop is run by Arabs who even when they talk to each other use hebrew words. Some time ago I overheard an old Arab couple (the woman was covering her hair) talking Hebrew to each other. Ajami is not far. Everybody here is living his life. Together, in peace. There is sometimes trouble, like there is everywhere. Gentrification makes living more expensive. But that is nothing uncommon anywhere else in the world.

Peace is very easily possible, when just one think is accepted: This is Israel, a country founded by Jews and this will stay Israel, a country founded by Jews.

Biden at TAU

I had an invitation and signed up. But when I received the details of the security procedure I decided not to go and rather watch the live stream of Joe Biden’s speech at Tel Aviv University.

The speech was boring and Biden did not say anything new or intriguing. He talked about his father, about his friendship with Israel, mentioned the building plans in a Jewish neighborhood in Jerusalem and condemned it (which was appreciated by the crowd, no wonder at TAU). He did not say anything you would not have heard by Americans or Europeans for the last 10 years.

Dubai

I wasn”t blogging for quite some time. Some old stuff might come up here first….

Between one and 27 individuals were involved in killing a Hamas terrorist in his hotel room in Dubai, according to the police of the Dubai regime. None of them got caught so far. And they used fake passports, of course.

Still – without any proof at all – the Dubai police accuses Israel for the killing and even asks Israel to help them to identify those involved. But who would expect else from Dubai.

What is striking is the adaption by European journalist. They all take it as taken, that the Hamas terrorist was killed by Israel. Without any proof.
