Según Haaretz, Hamas habría introducido desde Egipto cohetes tipo Sagger

http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/828457.html

There are grave concerns among the defense establishment about the possibility that Hamas' military wing in the Gaza Strip is now in possession of Sagger anti-tank missiles.

Recently, Hamas and other Palestinian paramilitary groups have stepped up their efforts to acquire more advanced anti-tank weaponry. This stems, in part, from the relative success of Hezbollah guerrillas armed with anti-tank missiles against infantry and armored units of the Israel Defense Forces during last summer's second Lebanon war.

The IDF fears Hamas has succeeded in its efforts to smuggle Sagger-type missiles from Sinai to the Gaza Strip. It appears that the number of missiles is especially large. However, the mere fact that such a weapon may be in Hamas' hands will affect the way IDF vehicles operate in the Gaza Strip, if it is decided to embark on an extensive offensive operation.

In recent years there have been many attempts by militant organizations to smuggle anti-tank missiles into the Gaza Strip. The Palestinians managed to successfully upgrade the RPGs in their possession from locally produced types to military grade equipment. However, the Sagger is a significant advance that poses a serious threat to the IDF - not only to armored jeeps, but also to armored personnel carriers (APCs), and in some instances, also to tanks.

During the past year there have been attempts to smuggle even more advanced anti-tank missiles, like the Konkurs and the Kornet, which Hezbollah has in its arsenal, into the Gaza Strip. It is not known whether the smugglers were successful. In May 2004, more than a year prior to the disengagement, Palestinians succeeded in destroying an APC with RPGs on the Philadelphi Route in Rafah, killing the five crewmen.

The Sagger AT-3 (a NATO designation), is a Soviet-made anti-tank missile, first used in the 1960s. The missile can hit a target at distances between 500 meters and three kilometers, and penetrate 400mm of armor. It is a relatively slow missile, whose rate of flight does not exceed 120 meters per second, and it requires about 25 seconds from the time it is launched until its impact.

During the Yom Kippur War the IDF lost many tanks to trained Egyptian crews armed with Sagger missiles. Since then, the armored corps has developed tactical maneuvering to counter the threat, mostly based on the missile's relatively slow flight and on the ability of crews to see the incoming missile.

Security sources said that even if the Sagger is not as advanced as the Kornet, it represents an increase in the potential threat to the IDF, if indeed such anti-tank missiles have made it into Hamas' hands.

Since the war in Lebanon, the Palestinians are busy learning the lessons of the conflict and they are using data and experts from Hezbollah.

In addition to the procurement of anti-tank missiles, the militant groups are making efforts to increase the range of their locally produced rockets. Current estimates hold that some Qassam rockets already have a range of 16 kilometers.

There are also extensive defensive preparations underway to repulse a possible IDF incursion into the Gaza Strip, including the construction of bunkers and tunnels.

The anti-tank missiles are a significant part of these defensive preparations because they are meant to deter the use of armored vehicles in the crowded urban confines of the Gaza Strip.

The Palestinians did take note of the fact that following the attack against the APC in the Philadelphi Route in 2004 and the destruction of another APC (with a six-man crew) the day before using an explosive device, the IDF seriously limited its offensive operations in the Gaza Strip

Adoctrinamiento antioccidental de los niños palestinos a través de la tv de Hamas, al Aqsa TV. Tienen un "Mickey Mouse" islamista llamado "farfour" (mariposa) que a través de un programa de TV adoctrina a los niños palestinos. No os perdáis el vídeo subtitulado en inglés.

Extractos de la noticia

...The lead character is called "farfour" or butterfly in Arabic, but is an unmistakable copy of the Disney character. On Friday, the character said he cheated on his exams because "the Jews destroyed my house," and he lost his books under the rubble. Children called in telling him his behavior was un-Islamic.

On previous episodes, the character said: "You and I are laying the foundation for a world led by Islamists. We will return the Islamic community to its former greatness, and liberate Jerusalem, God willing, liberate Iraq, God willing, and liberate all the countries of the Muslims invaded by the murderers."

During Friday's show, the adult presenter and the station manager, al-Sharawi, told viewers that once Islam rules, its message of "good and peace" will also rule.

Aprovechando las leyes del enemigo (sobre todo si es una democracia) :oops:
El alcalde de Jerusalén afirma que Hamás podría "conquistar" demográficamente la capital en 12 años
13/05/2007 | Actualizada a las 13:54h
Jerusalén. (EP).- El alcalde de Jerusalén, Uri Lupolianski, advirtió hoy a los miembros del Gabinete de Tel Aviv de que grupos palestinos afines a Hamás podrían controlar la capital israelí en un plazo de 12 años si la población árabe residente sigue creciendo al mismo ritmo de la última década, según informa el diario 'Yediot Aharonot' en su edición digital.
"Jerusalén podría, Dios no lo quiera, acabar no bajo soberanía judía, sino dominada por Hamás, que es consciente de que puede conquistar demográficamente Jerusalén en los próximos doce años", afirmó Lupolianski, que solicitó al Gabinete ministerial "un plan para asegurar que Jerusalén permanezca como capital de Israel durante toda la eternidad".
El alcalde realizó estos comentarios en la reunión semanal del Gobierno, realizada hoy en el centro Menahem Begin, enfrente de los muros de la Antigua Jerusalén, para conmemorar el 40 aniversario de la reunificación de la ciudad.
Según el diario, desde 1967, fecha en la que Israel conquistó el sector oriental de la ciudad en la guerra israelo-árabe de 1967, la población árabe en la capital aumentó en un 257 por ciento, frente al crecimiento del 140 por ciento experimentado por la población judía. Y según el Instituto de Jerusalén para Estudios de Israel (IJEI), si esta tendencia continúa, en 2020 los árabes conformarán el 40 por ciento de la población. Para 2035 serán más de la mitad.
El primer ministro israelí, Ehud Olmert, aclaró al principio del encuentro que el Gobierno está dispuesto a invertir más de mil millones de euros para fortalecer el desarrollo de la Ciudad Vieja de Jerusalén y para estimular el rendimiento económico.
"Tenemos que tomarnos muy en serio los comentarios del alcalde", afirmó el ministro israelí para Asuntos de Jerusalén, Jacob Edery. "La amenaza es seria e importante para el futuro judío en Jerusalén", añadió.
Entre las alternativas que barajan los sociólogos israelíes, cabe la posibilidad de «expandir hacia el oeste las fronteras de Jerusalén, eliminando barrios árabes del área municipal de la ciudad y convirtiendo a la capital en un lugar más atractivo para la gente joven y la clase media», según la doctora Maya Hoshe, del IJEI

Ojo, que puede ir a lo grande.
Si anteayer se cargaron los de Hamás a 9 tíos de Fuerza 17 (escolta presidencial) e hirieron a más de una docena, pues ahora se acaban de cargar a 5 de los escoltas (al menos) de Rachid Abu Chbak, jefe de seguridad de la presidencia palestina en un asalto a su domicilio.

Artículo del Times sobre Hamas y su conexión iraní. Las cosas pintan feas.

Hamas wages Iran’s proxy war on Israel
A Hamas leader admits hundreds of his fighters have travelled to Tehran


Marie Colvin in Gaza City

The Hamas commander was in a hurry. Hunched forward in a navy-blue parka, with the wind-chapped skin and drawn eyes of someone who had been outdoors all night, he had just returned from the front line with Israel. The whine of drones overhead signalled that his enemy was hunting for blood.

For someone who had survived the fiercest fighting between Israelis and Palestinians since 2000 and the deaths of scores of his fellow fighters, the commander, already a senior figure in his late twenties, appeared remarkably composed.

He is in the vanguard of the Izzedine al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas which is growing into a disciplined army, trained to fight for victory rather than be consigned to the “martyr’s death” of the suicide bomber.

Israel has long insisted that Iran is behind this training. Last week Yuval Diskin, the head of the Israeli internal security service Shin Bet, said as much when he claimed that Hamas had “started to dispatch people to Iran, tens and a promise of hundreds”. He provided no evidence.

The Hamas commander, however, confirmed for the first time that the Iranian Revolutionary Guard has been training its men in Tehran for more than two years and is currently honing the skills of 150 fighters.

The details he gave suggested that, if anything, Shin Bet has underestimated the extent of Iran’s influence on Hamas’s increasingly sophisticated tactics and weaponry.

Speaking on the record but withholding his identity as a target of Israeli forces, the commander, who has a sparse moustache and oiled black hair, said Hamas had been sending fighters to Iran for training in both field tactics and weapons technology since Israeli troops pulled out of the Gaza strip of Palestinian territory in 2005. Others go to Syria for more basic training.

“We have sent seven ‘courses’ of our fighters to Iran,” he said. “During each course, the group receives training that he will use to increase our capacity to fight.”

The most promising members of each group stay longer for an advanced course and return as trainers themselves, he said.

So far, 150 members of Qassam have passed through training in Tehran, where they study for between 45 days and six months at a closed military base under the command of the elite Revolutionary Guard force.

Of the additional 150 who are in Tehran now, some will go into Hamas’s research unit if they are not deemed strong enough for fighting.

Conditions at the base are strict, the commander said. The Palestinians are allowed out only one day a week. Even then, they may leave the base only in a group and with Iranian security. They shop and “always come back with really good boots”.

According to the commander, a further 650 Hamas fighters have trained in Syria under instructors who learnt their techniques in Iran. Sixty-two are in Syria now.

But what Hamas values most is the knowledge that comes directly from Iran. Some of it was used to devastating effect by the militant group Hezbollah against Israeli forces in Lebanon in 2006.

“They come home with more abilities that we need,” said the Hamas commander, “such as high-tech capabilities, knowledge about land mines and rockets, sniping, and fighting tactics like the ones used by Hezbollah, when they were able to come out of tunnels from behind the Israelis and attack them successfully.

“Those who go to Iran have to swear on the Koran not to reveal details, even to their mothers.”

He said the Hamas military, which numbers about 15,000 fighters, was modelling itself on Hezbollah. “We don’t have tanks. We don’t have planes. We are street fighters and we will use our own ways,” he said.

Nodding in agreement was his companion, another senior Qassam fighter, from Hamas’s manufacturing wing. Dressed in a new, olive-green uniform, he said his job entailed “cooking” – putting together the explosive mixture that Hamas inserts into Qassam rockets.

Everyone was working overtime, he added. He too had been out all night. He said he had launched five mortars and faced heavy machinegun fire in return from Israeli lines.

The commander was particularly impressed with advances made using Iranian technology. “One of the things that has been helpful is that they have taught us how to use the most ordinary things we have here and make them into explosives,” he said.

Such technology had been most useful of all in developing the Qassam rocket and mines deployed against Israeli tanks.

Hamas had just developed the Shawas 4, a new generation of mine, with Iranian expertise, he added.

“We send our best brains to Tehran. It would be a waste of money to send them and then have them come back with nothing.”

They travelled to Egypt, flew to Syria and, on arrival and departure from Tehran, were allowed through without a stamp for security reasons.

“Anything they think will be useful, our guys there e-mail it to us right away,” the military technician said. THE latest spiral of violence, which has killed 130 Palestinians and 12 Israelis, including eight students massacred at their seminary in Jerusalem last Thursday, was triggered 10 days ago by a chance event.

For weeks, Hamas had been launching rockets into Israel to little effect. But then a rocket aimed at Sderot, a town in the western Negev desert, killed Roni Yichia, a 47-year-old mature student, as he stood in his college car park. The next day, Israel launched the fierce ground and air assault on Gaza dubbed Operation Hot Winter.

Its targets, as Hamas intensified the rocket attacks, ranged from Qassam launchers in the northern Gaza Strip to the interior ministry in the centre of Gaza City. Last week, as the blasts and counter-blasts subsided, it was not only Hamas that was counting its losses. As many civilians as fighters had died.

Ra’ad Abu Seif, a 40-year-old lorry driver, had herded his family into an interior room as their street exploded. His 12-year-old daughter Safa ran to an upstairs flat to fetch her uncle. An Israeli sniper shot her just below the heart, he said.

Abu Seif heard screams and ran to find her lying on the floor. “I didn’t see the bullet hole so I picked her up and then I felt the blood on her back,” he said. “We put her by the water tank and opened her clothes and found the bullet holes.

“We tried to close the holes by holding them and putting cotton on them,” he said. Safa lived for two more hours. “Then her head went back, and her eyes rolled,” he said, covering his face with his hands. “The one who shot her, I just want to ask him, how can you be a human being and shoot a little kid?”

Abu Seif blames not only Israel but Hamas as well. “They have been firing these rockets for seven years, and look what happens,” he said. “Hamas should admit it has made a mistake and try another path.”

A short distance away, Mohamed Abu Shabak was mourning his daughter Jacqueline, 17, and son Iyad, 16. He sat gaping at a hole in a second-floor window that he said had been made by an Israeli sniper. His hand shook and he could not speak for a while.

Iyad was the first to die. He had got up at about 1am to go to the lavatory and was hit in the chest by a single shot through the window. Jacqueline came running in and was shot in the head.

Their father was in the West Bank city of Ramallah, having fled Gaza because he was an official in the Fatah administration deposed by Hamas last year, and was on the militants’ wanted list.

The last time he spoke to Jacqueline, who wanted to be a doctor, she had minutes to live. “She called to tell me, father I am so scared, there is shooting everywhere. She was worried about her 12-year-old brother, Mohamed,” he said.

When the Israelis withdrew last Monday, Hamas claimed victory, but it did not seem like one to many in Gaza. Attacks continued from both sides last week.

One of them would claim the youngest victim of the conflict.

Mohamed Abu Asser, a 37-year-old taxi driver, and his wife, Nadia, 30, took their two youngest daughters, two-year-old Nadine and 20-day-old Amira, to visit a sick friend of the family last Tuesday.

This weekend, however, Nadia lay in a hospital bed. Large tears spilled from her eyes as she described how Amira had died.

“We heard fierce shooting,” Nadia recalled. “The Israelis called over the microphone to evacuate the house. But when I went out, holding up my baby, a small red light came on me and they shot me. They didn’t let the ambulance come for three hours.”

Her husband told the same story. “We decided Nadia should go out first, with the baby – they would be less likely to shoot her,” he said. “Now my first photo of my smiley baby is when she is dead.”

Tragedy came to Israel as well. At 8.30pm on Thursday, Alaa Abu Dheim, a 25-year-old driver from largely Palestinian east Jerusalem, arrived at the entrance to Mercaz Harav seminary, carrying a big television box. He took an AK47 out of the box and shot his way in, carrying magazines as well as two hand guns.

While a student whispered for help to emergency services over his mobile, Abu Dheim was calmly replacing his AK47 magazines, one after another, and killing students trapped in the library with shots to the head.

He was eventually killed by David Shapira, an Israeli para-troop captain on leave, who had been reading a bedtime story to his children when he heard the shots and ran to the seminary.

Yehuda Hillel Shulman, 19, was one of the nine wounded who were still in hospital this weekend. His mother Miriam said that when the first shots were heard, a rabbi had turned off the lights and told his students to jump from a balcony.

“They all jumped out of the second floor and that’s how they saved their lives, before Abu Dheim reached their room. The rabbi was the last to jump,” she said.

Gaza’s gunmen poured into the streets on hearing the news, shooting into the air in celebration of the massacre. CAN anything be done to stem the bloodshed? Tortuous negotiations in which Egypt acted as an intermediary produced a truce that was still in place yesterday. But any further incident could result in another Israeli incursion.

Condoleezza Rice, the American secretary of state, also persuaded Fatah’s Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas, to resume talks with Israel, but he has not said when.

Hamas, which is pledged to destroy Israel, remains excluded from any negotiations. But it emerged this weekend that senior members of the Israeli security establishment were urging the government of Ehud Olmert to talk to Hamas. They believe any agreement made without Hamas would fail.

Fundamentally, however, the real problem may be that much of Hamas seems willing to fight on for “liberation”, no matter how hopeless the cause.

The conflict is further complicated by the role of Iran which, by supporting Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Gaza, has created two potential fronts for Israel. If Israel’s military is occupied with an internal threat, its reasoning goes, Olmert will be loath to mount the attack Tehran fears on its nuclear programme.

As for the Hamas commander, he is focused on making sure his forces are equipped and trained for the next Israeli incursion. “They are occupying us, we are not occupying them,” he said. “We will never stop resisting.”

Reformers banned from poll

A record low turnout is expected in Iran’s parliamentary elections this week after the ruling hardliners banned the majority of reformist candidates from standing.

Despite a faltering economy, runaway inflation, falling living standards and international isolation, the elections pose little threat to the deeply conservative regime led by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

The Council of Guardians, which decides the legitimacy of candidates, barred reformers including Ali Eshraghi, 39, the grandson of Iran’s late revolutionary leader Ayatollah Khomeini.

The conservatives, known as the principalists, backed by Ahmadinejad are virtually assured of 70% of the 290 parliamentary seats because of the guardians’ decisions.

Declaración de Saná:

El presidente yemení Ali Abdalah Saleh ha abierto unas negociaciones con Al Fatah y Hamas, para reanudar el diálogo y volver a las situaciones existentes antes de los acontecimientos de Gaza.

Esto quizás no sea muy bueno para Yemen ni para Palestina.
