Arutz 7: ISIS in Jerusalem Threatens ChristiansEsser Agaroth (2¢):
For the first time ever 'ISIS Palestine' publishes fliers in eastern part of the capital city threatening 'revenge' against Christians.
Ari Yashar, June 26, 2015
A flier published by the brutal Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist organization was put up around eastern Jerusalem on Thursday, in what is thought to be the first ISIS announcement in the Israeli capital.
The flier threatens Christians in the area with "revenge," and is signed by the organization "ISIS Palestine," reports Channel 10.
ISIS has been rapidly gaining a foothold in Israel, with dozens of Arab citizens of the state leaving for Syria and Iraq to fight for the jihadist organization after ISIS members took part in Hamas's terror war against Israel last summer.
A cell of the group was nabbed in Hevron in Judea last November showing their presence in the region, while in Gaza the group has clashed with Hamas and repeatedly fired rockets at Israel to spark fighting between Israel and Hamas.
Perhaps as a result of that threat to Hamas presented by ISIS, Palestinian Arab commentator Halad Ameira who is considered to be a follower of Hamas's terrorist ideology told Channel 10 the group should hold talks with Israel.
"A negotiation between Muslims and non-Muslims is something that should be taken into account," said Ameira. "Enemies negotiate when they're killing each other. What is forbidden according to religious law is concessions undercutting the key principles."
Hamas's charter calls for a genocide against all Jews, although unlike the Palestinian Authority (PA) that it signed a unity deal with last year, it tends to pursue its anti-Israel agenda through physical violence rather than "peace talks" meant to force the Jewish state into dangerous concessions.
Ameira claimed that even if Hamas were to sign a ten-year "tahdiya" or temporary lull deal with Israel, it would not be a breach of key principles.
"Jihad is not a goal in and of itself but rather a means to achieve peace," he claimed, asserting that the terrorist violence aiming to destroy Israel was meant for "peace."
This report reminds us of the true differences between Hamas and Abbas's Fatah, overt violence vs. patience and trickery, both strategies intending on the destruction of Israel.
But, this is not the reason I am commenting on it. Rather, I would like to suggest a possible connecting of the dot.

If the U. S. plays its public relations cards right, it could sell such an operation to both its left-wing and its right-wing citizens. The left would support defending "oppressed minorities," whether Christian or Kurdish, from ISIS, whom it believes is different than other Arabs, particularly
The right would support a military action to defend Christians against anyone, not to mention the opportunity to bring theoretically Christian forces into the Holy Land. The seeds were already planted by a left-winger, too, Secretary of State John Kerry proposed the stationing of American troops in the Jordan Valley, in order to allay the Israeli Government's security concerns over a nascent, Pseudostinian state's border with Jordan.
Outrage has already been gaining momentum on social media, regarding the violence toward Christians, Kurdish, Yazdi, and other ethnic minorities by the hands of ISIS. The key would be portraying any military actions differentially, depending on the target community.
Before you know it, Israel will be stuck in the middle of the next stage in the war between Esau (The West) and Yishma'el (Arabs/Muslims), both with a final objective of stealing our Land, Jerusalem in particular (Zech. 12-14).
With the Israeli Left collaborating with Yishma'el, and the Israeli Right collaborating with Esau, instead of banding together to resist the infiltration of both of them, I am afraid this is going to be a very grueling period in our history.
