Hebron group: 3rd intifada has begun

Video posted by newly-established group headed by members of Hamas, Fatah, Islamic Jihad and PFLP says it will fight to recover 'all of Palestine - from sea to the river'

Palestinians in the West Bank city of Hebron have distributed a video declaring the establishment of the "National Union Battalions," which according to them will be jointly headed by members of Hamas, Fatah, Islamic Jihad and the Popular Front or the Liberation of Palestine as a means of consolidating the struggle against Israel.= 
In its announcement, the group stressed that while it supports the UN's recognition of Palestine as a non-member observer state, it will fight to recover "all of Palestine – from the sea to the river."
From the comments:
Israel is Getting What it Asks For

World condemnation and Isolation. Resistance by thse it illegally occupies, colonizes, steals water and taxes from and uses for target practice.. What do you expect? That the Pals would be as compliant of victims of war crimes as the Jews were in the 1930's?

The Arabs have no intention whatsoever of allowing the Jews of the Middle East to live in peace and much of the western world, perhaps most, feel quite like Doug does.  Which is to say, everything is the fault of those malicious Jews and they deserve whatever beating they get.


  1. It was only a matter of time. No one wants no peace deal like Jihadist Palestinians.

  2. The leasers of Palestine have an international obligation to restrain this type of behavior.

    One more piece of evidence for them to be charged with international crimes.

    Other states have responsibility to speak against this violation, and the calls for Israel's destruction, and by not doing so validate Israel's tight to act.

    The world is such a mess, and Western states will regret their decision to look the other way or even support the insanity of what occurs before our own eyes.

    1. School, the leasers of Palestine have no obligations, international or otherwise, that they are obliged to meet.

      You know that's true.

      What I find interesting about your comment, tho, is that it raises the question of international law. If the Palestinians wish to use "lawfare" against Israel at the ICC, then certainly Israel can sue the PA for any number of things, including incitement to genocide.

      Lawfare is a two-way street.

      We both know, of course, that the UN is stacked against Israel and, at this point, mainly exists to be an antagonist toward that country.

      It's also true that international law is arbitrary in enforcement and infused with biased politics in its creations.

      Thus international law has no moral standing, whatsoever.

      I guess my question is to what extent we want to fight them in arenas biased against us or simply deny the arenas?

      If you get me.

    2. The idea that such a thing as "the international community" could work together to prevent wars has always been very naive. Whether it was the ineffective League of Nations between the two World Wars, or the corrupt United Nations now, it is a poor testimony to human wisdom that people continue to believe in that pipe-dream.

  3. I must be getting old. At first, I read it as United Nation Battalions...

      My keyboard is old and tired, too, apparently...
