The Real Truth About Israel’s War
The Real Truth About Israel’s War
by Mike Evans with Jerusalem Prayer Team:
The late president of Israel, Shimon Peres, told me more than 20 years ago that the new wars of the 21st century would be proxy wars. There’s no doubt in my mind that Israel is at war, but not with the Palestinians, but in fact, with Iran.
Iran’s enrichment of uranium is now up to 63 percent according to the United Nations International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). Is it a simple coincidence that Hamas, which is funded by Iran, planned its operation around Jerusalem Day? The Grand Ayatollah of Iran Ali Khamenei condemned acts of aggression in Jerusalem, stating that Israel only understands the language of force.
Jerusalem Day commemorates the unification of Jerusalem, establishing Israel’s control over the Old City in the aftermath of the June 1967, Six-Day War. Shimon Peres said the new wars of the 21st century are media wars, ideological wars, proxy wars, and economic wars. Iran is fighting all of those wars by orchestrating an Islamic attack from the Mosque of Omar during Jerusalem Day. What transpired was Hamas radicals were sent out of the mosque to attack Jews with stones, with bottles, and anything possible—and then to run back into the mosque.
Why this game? Because their plan was to provoke the Israeli police to come into the mosque while cameras filmed it all, so they could spread the lie that Israelis were desecrating the mosque and attacking worshippers. Don’t think for a minute that the timing and the planning did not come from Iran, because it did. Iran knew exactly what it was doing and what it would accomplish with the riots and the missiles.
What exactly is Iran trying to do? It is trying to send a signal to Israel that it will not stop its nuclear program. The media throughout the world is buying into the lie, publishing stories that equate Hamas and Israel with moral equivalency, claiming that Hamas is the victim, that they are simply worshippers in the mosque being attacked and beaten up by Israeli storm troopers. It is a lie out of the pit of hell.
There is evidence of Iranian involvement throughout the recent attacks on Israel. The use of violence in Jerusalem on Quds Day last Friday was no coincidence. Quds Day was established by the Iranian regime after the revolution of 1979. Iran’s top military spokesman General Abolfazl Shekarchi warned months ago that Iran would destroy Tel Aviv and Haifa.
With this lie comes the myth about Israel robbing the Palestinians of a two-state solution. The Palestinians have never had a state. It’s a myth. They have never had a flag or a language, and Jerusalem was never their capital. Jordan is their state. The Palestinians are mostly Jordanians. Yes, the Palestinians need to have a state, and the state is called Jordan.
The U.S. and the world need to quit propagating a lie and create a plan for Jordan to take over the Palestinian territories, including Gaza, providing Jordan with the money to build police stations, a security apparatus, schools, hospitals, and provide the same stability that Jordan provides to its own citizens. But lest we forget, it was the Palestinians themselves who tried to overthrow Jordan, the same Palestinians who supported Saddam Hussein’s attempt to overthrow Kuwait.
Imagine if you will for a moment that the Ku Klux Klan was in New Jersey, killing blacks in Harlem and firing rockets into Harlem, demanding that all black people get out of Harlem and Harlem must become a white state. Would America support that? There is no chance in the world America would. And yet America is telling Jews to give the Palestinians a state. Just recently, two Jews ended up in Gaza by mistake. The Palestinians threw them out of a police station and ripped them apart like mad dogs.
The Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud told me that “there cannot be two capitals in Jerusalem, or it would be a terror capital. The Palestinians are fools. They should copy Israel, not fight it.” No one in the Arab world wants the Palestinians. They’ve seen their conduct. They’ve seen what they’ve done in Israel, and they don’t want to have anything to do with them, including Jordan.
Riots are breaking out all over Israel. It was perfectly planned by Iran. Imagine what it’s like to be a Russian Jew living in the south on the border of Gaza. After suffering through post-traumatic stress because of rockets, Hamas opened the round of violence with a salvo of rockets directed at Israel’s capital. That’s something that has not been seen since the Gaza War of 2014.
The same rockets were fired at Tel Aviv. There’s only one group that’s been desecrated in the mosque, and that is Hamas. They knew precisely what they were doing. There’s no chance in the world that Iran would have played this card with Hamas if Donald Trump was president. They feared him. But they don’t fear President Biden. Neither does China or Russia.
Biden said on Tuesday, May 11, that the Palestinian people have the right to safety and security, just as Israel does. Would he have said that about Al-Qaeda when they attacked us on 9/11? What right do terrorists have to safety and security?
When we fought World War II, we did not provide safety and security to the Japanese or the Nazis. Israel needs to stand up and let the world know there will never be a two-state solution and run every Palestinian out of Gaza into the Sinai. Let the leftists of the world build them refugee camps and take them into their own countries if they love them so much.
There were no Palestinians living in Gaza historically. They were Philistines if you read your Bible. Egypt occupied Gaza from 1959 to 1967. On the 12th of September 2005, Israel disengaged from Gaza. Israel Defense Forces left the Gaza Strip on the first of September 2005, thinking that they were giving a gift to the Palestinians that would bring peace. Instead, Gaza has become a terrorist state run by terrorist organizations. It has been said that he who does not learn from history is destined to repeat it.
The PLO was founded in 1964 with only one goal, the liberation of Palestine through an armed struggle. The ideology of the PLO is still in play. If you look at a Palestinian flag, you’ll notice something. On the backside of the flag is a map, but it’s not a map of Israel. Not of any of Israel. It all belongs to what they call Palestine. The Jews are all illegal.
If you look for images of this conflict, most of the images you see on print and TV are showing suffering Palestinians. What about suffering Jews? We’re talking about over 1,000 rockets fired at Israel. What would the United States do if 1,000 rockets were fired at Texas? Tell Texans to give them the Alamo?
The International Criminal Court said that they’re watching Israel for potential war crimes. That’s insane! Iran must be laughing hilariously at this stupidity as Jewish synagogues are being burned to the ground and Jews are being attacked.
President Biden told Netanyahu Israel needs to stand down in the face of thousands of massive rockets coming down on Israeli cities and Arabs carrying out pogroms countrywide. Shame on Joe Biden and shame on the liberal left Democrat Jew-haters.
Throughout the month of Ramadan, Hamas was inciting Arab Israelis in Jerusalem and throughout the country to attack Jews. Cars were being lit on fire. Gangs of Arab thugs were beating up Jews.
Iran marched its own troops on Jerusalem Day calling for the dreaded destruction of Israel and the end of Jews in Jerusalem. It was a well-orchestrated theatrical production with balloon bombs, Temple Mount riots, Damascus Gate riots, terrorist attacks, and missiles. You have Jake Sullivan, President Biden’s National Security Advisor, blaming Israel for the violence that happened and encouraging the Israeli government to pursue appropriate measures to ensure calm.
Hamas gave Israel an ultimatum. Get out and leave the Temple Mount by 6 p.m., or else. In other words, give up your sovereignty by 6 p.m. or else. Shortly after 6 p.m., the air raid sounded from Jerusalem, and Jews were attacked, and buildings were burned.
Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren have been screaming their heads off attacking Israel. More than 40 years ago, I published a book called Israel: America’s Key to Survival. I talked about the fact that when Israel is weakened, Islamic radicals will strike the West. I then began writing articles stating that the first attack would be New York City, and it started with the tallest building. Have we learned nothing yet?
The main target for Iran’s regime is Israel. The Iranians are obsessed with Israel, the same way the Nazis were obsessed with the Jews. The regime claims Israel is really Palestine. An aggressive movement with money, training, and the direction of Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guard Corps, Palestinian Islamic Jihad Official Ramez Al-Halabi said in a video posted by Memri, “The rockets we use to pound Tel Aviv, our weapons, our money, and our food are provided by Iran.”
Ziad Al-Nakhaleh of Islamic Jihad revealed in an interview that the high-profile Iranian Revolutionary Guard’s high commander, Ghassem Soleimani personally led the operation to send missiles and technology to Palestine. Soleimani was killed in Iraq by U.S. drones in 2020.
On social media, Palestinian Islamic Jihad announced the use of a heavy Badr 3 rocket against the Jewish city of Ashkelon in Israel. Badr is a rocket made in Iran.
Ismail Haniyeh, a senior Hamas leader, has publicly thanked Iran as the primary supporter of Hamas missiles used by Hamas and Islamic Jihad groups are from Iran. Iran increased the money sent to Hamas to $30 million per month in 2019 in exchange for intel on Israel, even after the U.S. left the nuclear deal in 2018.
The “big lie” was coined by Adolf Hitler to describe the use of a lie so “colossal” that no one would believe that someone “could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.”
Hamas told Netanyahu’s government that they would not “overdo” the rockets in exchange for Israel allowing the distribution of Qatari money on the condition that the money be distributed at the rate of $100 per family. We’re talking about $75 million. You can be sure that $75 million would never get to the families. They would only be used to build bombs to blow up Jews.
When the PA elections looked as if Hamas was about to win over Fatah, Mahmoud Abbas decided to cancel the elections. The cancellation of the elections demanded a show of might from Hamas and Islamic Jihad which, of course, meant violence and terror.
Encouraging violence through the Imams and then the shooting of rockets and missiles over the obvious scapegoat – Israel – was a no-brainer. All they had to do was incite a return of fire from the IDF and the world was back on the bandwagon of condemning the Jews for defending themselves!
The IDF Air Force’s pinpointing of targets successfully killed several of the main players from Hamas. However, Hamas has used schools and hospitals with children as human shields for their operations. The moment a child dies, the entire world sees it and views Hamas as the victims.
Hamas could lead a Jerry Lewis-type telethon to raise hundreds of millions of dollars for more weapons and to garnish support for their causes. The only thing Hamas and Islamic Jihad needed was a green light from its sponsor Iran.
