Israel unveils Iranian arms for Gaza terrorists captured by IDF. Cache includes 40 missiles & 400,000 rounds of ammunition.

(Washington, D.C.) — UPDATE: “Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday lashed out at the world for its ‘hypocrisy’ over Iran as he unveiled a shipment of arms allegedly dispatched to Gaza by Tehran,” reports Agence France Presse. “Standing in front of a vast display of weapons seized last week from a vessel in the Red Sea, Netanyahu launched a blistering attack on the West over its apparent disregard for Iran’s alleged attempts to supply advanced weapons to Palestinian militants.”

“In a highly-publicised speech from Eilat port, where the weapons had been unloaded, Netanyahu said he had only heard a handful of ‘softly-worded condemnations of Iran’ over its ‘murderous delivery’ which came to light just days before EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton made a landmark visit to Tehran,” reports AFP. “We have been witness to the smiles and the handshakes between representatives of the West and the heads of the Iranian regime in Tehran, even as these missiles were being unloaded here in Eilat,” he said.

“The ship was organised by Iran, despatched by Iran, financed by Iran. The missiles were loaded by Iran, in Iran and as usual Iran denies these facts,” Netanyahu said. “Our intelligence services exposed the ship’s wayward route and Iran’s efforts to disguise it. They exposed the ship’s deadly cargo and its intended destination,” he said.

“Just as Iran hid its deadly missiles in the belly of this ship, Iran is hiding its actions and its intentions in many of its key installations for developing nuclear weapons,” he said. “Before it’s too late, the world must wake up from its illusion and prevent Iran from getting the capability to build a nuclear weapon.”

ORIGINAL POST: Today, Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will “unveil the inventory of weapons recovered from the attempted Iranian shipment to Gaza last week on the intercepted freighter Klos C,” the Jerusalem Post reported. “Netanyahu, along with Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, was scheduled on Monday to tour the Eilat naval base where the Klos C is docked, to highlight Iran’s support for terrorism.”

“According to Military Intelligence, Iran originally flew the rockets from Syria to an Iranian airfield a number of months ago, before trucking them to the Iranian port of Bander Abbas, where they were loaded onto the Klos C,” the Post noted. “On Saturday, Israel Navy ships escorted the commandeered freighter to Eilat Port after intercepting it last week in the Red Sea, some 150 km. from Port Sudan and 1,500 km. from Israeli shores. Islamic Jihad was one of the intended recipients of the rockets, and Hamas is also assumed to have been a recipient. IDF intelligence assessments say that Iran’s Quds Force organized the shipment.”

According to the IDF, the following weaponry was found onboard the “Klos-C”:

  • 40 rockets (type M-302), up-to the range of 160 kilometers
  • 180 mortar shells
  • Approximately 400,000 rounds of 7.62 caliber ammunition.

After IDF forces returned from their mission, the Chief of the General Staff, Lt. Gen. Benjamin (Benny) Gantz  addressed the soldiers who took part in Operation Full Disclosure: “Our efforts to prevent the proliferation of weapons and the supply of critical components with strategic influence over the region is not over, and our struggle does not end by arriving safely at our home port. We will sort through the equipment and continue our day to day efforts. There are many other missions ahead of us. The task we carried out was not a simple one. It was meticulously orchestrated by the IDF and particularly the Navy over a long period of time. It required each and every one of you to perform at your best while spending a significant amount of time at sea, and the product of this hard work is laid in front of you. Each one of these rockets poses a threat to the safety of the citizens of Israel. Each bullet and each rocket that was discovered had an Israeli address.”

GOOD NEWS: Obama “Executive Action” Eases Immigration Restrictions on Terrorists

It wasn’t enough to have an Attorney General whose law firm gleefully defended terrorists involved in 9/11. And it wasn’t enough to have Muslim immigration to the United States skyrocket.

No, now Islamists who support terror are welcome, too. Which is pretty much the Wall Street Journal position on immigration.

The Obama administration has eased the rules for would-be asylum-seekers, refugees and others who hope to come to the United States or stay here and who gave “limited” support to terrorists or terrorist groups… The change is one of President Barack Obama’s first actions on immigration since he pledged during his State of the Union address last month to use more executive directives…

The Department of Homeland Security and the State Department now say that people considered to have provided “limited material support” to terrorists or terrorist groups are no longer automatically barred from the United States.

…Rep. Bob Goodlatte, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, called the change naive given today’s global terrorist threats… “President Obama should be protecting U.S. citizens rather than taking a chance on those who are aiding and abetting terrorist activity and putting Americans at greater risk,” said Goodlatte, R-Va.

As an up-and-coming politician, Mr. Obama feted terrorists and marinated in anti-semitism.

Which makes this unlawful “executive action” on the part of the president all the less surprising.

And when innocent Americans die — and they will — remember who Obama is and what his administration did.

Amidst peace talks, Gaza terrorists have fired at least 18 rockets at Israel since Jan. 1.

>> MONDAY UPDATE: Loud explosions heard in Eilat – IDF troops dispatched to area to search for source, thought to be rockets (Times of Israel)

Even as Secretary of State John Kerry continues shuttling in and out the epicenter in search of a final, comprehensive peace treaty between the Israelis and Palestinians — and continues pressuring Netanyahu to make deeper and deeper concessions — terrorist rocket fire emanating from Gaza and targeting Jewish civilians in southern Israel is steadily increasing.

“January has seen an upsurge in Palestinian rocket  attacks from Gaza on southern Israel, with 18 projectiles fired since the start  of the month,” reports the Jerusalem Post.

“The Israel Air Force struck an Islamic Jihad member in the northern Gaza Strip  on Sunday morning who had been involved in a spate of rocket attacks against  Israel,” noted the Post. “Security sources said following the strike that Islamic Jihad, as the non-sovereign party in Gaza, was exploiting its position to attack Israel,  and that the coming hours would determine whether Hamas would be able to  exercise its authority as Gaza’s ruler to reinstate the truce with  Israel. The target of the strike, named as Ahmed Sa’ad, took part in the firing of rockets at southern Israeli communities, the IDF said, and planned  further attacks in the near future. Sunday’s air strike can be seen as a message from the IDF that  Israel is prepared to target terrorists personally involved in the  attacks.”

“It’s a signal that we won’t tolerate a drizzle of rockets,” a senior security source said.

“Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said Sunday that Israel will not allow anyone to return it to a ‘routine’ of rocket fire, warning that ‘those who try to do so will pay a very high price,’” noted the Post.  “We see Hamas as being responsible for what occurs in the Gaza Strip, and if it does not know how to enforce its sovereignty on what takes place on the ground, we’ll keep hitting its interests. I would not recommend that anyone in the Gaza Strip test our patience and determination to protect the security of  Israeli civilians.”

Please pray that the rocket fire is effectively stopped. Please pray for the innocent civilians on both sides of the border find safety and security. Please also pray for the Lord to give wisdom to the diplomats and government officials in the region to make peace.
