According to one of Israel's foremost journalists, Khaled Abu Toameh, PA President Abbas is either playing the world for fools or he is delusional.
An affiliate of ISIS in Gaza claimed responsiblity for yesterdays rockets fired into Israel. Was it a message? Is Israel already at war with ISIS? It might be.
Hamas may be the duly elected government in Gaza. And it might not want a war with Israel right now. Regardless, it is a terrorist organization with an unwavering commitment to completely destroy the Jewish State.
According to an English press release by Hamas, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is "an icon of terrorism and criminality" whose "lies shall fade and fail to whitewash his bloody image."
Without fanfare, Israeli officials are quietly concerned about the nation's ability to protect its citizens from an imminent war with Hezbollah, the "Party of Allah" in Lebanon. Very concerned.
