In case you believed the recent slurs against Israel being the primary obstacle to peace, Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas revealed his true position: he will never agree to Israel being a Jewish state. Watch this video below, especially the last minute. With thanks to MEMRI.

IranWeapons Seizure Exposes Iran’s True Terror Intentions

By The Idfblog.com

For the first time, the IDF is releasing photos of Iran’s entire weapons shipment to Gaza terrorists. Iran attempted to hide its involvement, but the evidence is clear. With its weapons exposed to the world, Iran can no longer deny its intentions to terrorize Israeli civilians.

M-302 rockets discovered on board the ship

“We have solid information that proves Iran’s relationship with the shipment,” a senior IDF Intelligence officer said Monday. He spoke after a combined IDF task force from various units inspected the Klos-C and unloaded the Iranian weapons shipment concealed aboard the ship. “Firstly, the containers were sealed in Iran, and they have Iranian authenticity seals on them, including seals of the Iranian postal company. The cement bags that were used to hide the weapons were clearly marked as coming from Iran,” he said.

The shipment contained 181 heavy mortars, 400,000 bullets, and dozens of M-302 rockets that have the capability to strike almost anywhere in Israel.

“In the cargo hold of the ship you can see that 100 out of 150 of the containers were transferred from Iran to Iraq,” the Intelligence officer said. “There they added additional containers, and changed the loading form in order to make it look like the entire shipment came from Iraq. This can be cross-referenced with the documents that we discovered on the ship. Generally speaking, Iran was trying to hide its involvement in any form.”

The shipment would have equipped Gaza terrorist organizations with strike capabilities far exceeding those they currently hold. “We’re talking about weapons that are out of the ordinary; different from previous smuggling attempts. These warheads are far larger than other rockets [currently present in] Gaza. Take the rocket from Operation Pillar of Defense that hit a home in Rishon Lezion. That rocket destroyed one floor. This warhead would have destroyed the entire building.”

what to do with the rockets

Send the confiscated rockets back to their rightful owners, one at a time and by air.

Abbas wants it both ways

The bottom line is Abbas is willing to consider a two state solution where one state, Israel, allows in every Muslim who brands himself "Palestinian," and another state, which allows no Jews. In other words, Abbas wants to have his state and eat it too.

Purim link to Klos C Operation

Purim is around the corner. The Klos C interception is a timely reminder that the old, hate-filled fingerprints of Haman's days are still to be found in today's Iran. Fear NOT! Israel and the Jewish people everywhere shall prevail and flourish long after this latest batch of terrorists have been consigned to the dustbins of oblivion.

Get real

What is Abbas to do? If he so much as hesitates in any way that could lead either side to think he might, just might, be willing to consider recognizing Israel as a Jewish state, he's toast. The problem goes a lot deeper than Palestinian leadership, both on the West Bank and in Gaza. It's at best a highly dubious proposition to suggest that any solution could even begin with Palestinian leadership. Only from the street up can their be hope. Bombard and inundate those territories with satellite phones and laptop computers and other electronics devices that would open those places to free communication with the rest of the world. Let them see what they're missing, the realities they've been denied and the toxic fantasies they've been fed. Then see what their "leaders" have to say about peace.
